**#71 The 120:144 division in four sacred
geometries**

a) **Disdyakis triacontahedron**Suppose that the centres of the 120 triangular
faces of the disdyakis triacontahedron are joined to its centre. The (120×3=360) sides of their (120×3=360)
sectors inside their Type A triangular faces are sides of 360 internal triangles. When the latter are Type A
triangles, this construction generates 360 internal corners and (360×3=1080) sides of their (360×3=1080)
sectors, that is, 1440 corners & triangles. Also generated are 120 internal sides of these 360 internal
triangles. Hence, (120+1080=1200=120×10) sides are generated, as well as 1440 (=144×10) corners &
triangles. Sides of sectors of the faces create (1200+1440=2640=264×10) geometrical elements inside the
polyhedron.

b) **Two Type B dodecagons**Transforming a dodecagon with 12 corners into a
Type B dodecagon requires 181 yods, i.e., (181−12=169)

c) **Inner Tree of Life**When the 47 sectors of the seven enfolded polygons of
the inner Tree of Life are tetractyses, they contain 264 yods. 120 red yods line the sides of the polygons, shaping
them, and 144 blue yods are inside their boundaries.

d) **Polyhedral Tree of Life**The division: 264 = 120 + 144 is characteristic
of holistic systems, such as the disdyakis triacontahedron, the seven enfolded, Type A polygons of the inner Tree
of Life and the two joined, Type B dodecagons. It manifests in the Polyhedral Tree of Life (see here) as the 144 triangular faces of the 144 Polyhedron and the 120
triangular faces of the disdyakis triacontahedron. The 144 yods inside the boundaries of the seven enfolded
polygons denote the former and the 120 yods on their boundaries denote the latter. The two types of yods — one
shaping the polygons as their boundaries, the other constituting their interiors — reflect the Yang/Yin-type
polarity or duality of functions that is embodied in the 144 Polyhedron and the disdyakis triacontahedron. These
functions are represented in the masculine Pillar of Mercy and the feminine Pillar of Judgement of the outer
Tree of Life (remember that the words "masculine" and "feminine" are used here in a

The Tetrad expresses both the holistic parameters 120 & 144 as 4×4 square arrays of the
integers 1, 2, 3 & 4 raised, respectively, to the power of 2 and to the first four powers, namely, 0, 1, 2
& 3 (see diagram). Including the centres of their tetractyses, the two joined, Type B dodecagons contain 354
yods outside their shared side, where 354 = 1^{4} + 2^{4} + 3^{4} +
4^{4}. Such mathematical beauty reflects the status of this regular polygon as the polygonal representation
of the Tree of Life (see here). As

121 = 11^{2} = 1 + 3 +... + **21**,

120 = 3 + 5 + ... + **21**,

i.e., 120 is the sum of the first *ten* odd integers after 1, whilst 144 =
12^{2}, where 12 is the number of corners of the *tenth* polygon, counting from a triangle with
three corners. This shows how the Decad determines the holistic parameters 120 & 144. It also determines the
524 yods in the (7+7) enfolded polygons of the inner Tree of Life because this number is the sum of the cubes of
the integers 1, 2, 3 & 4 assigned to the 61 yods of a decagon, which symbolizes the number 10 because it has 10
corners:

524 = | = |
