Form and geometry
Forms have shape and all shapes can be mathematically represented using geometry.
Thus in Spirit terms, all form is constructed from a series of mathematical constructs such as the rhomboid, the triangle, rectangles, polygons, icosahedron, dodecahedrons, pyramids and so on. Some examples follow:
Thus we can think of every Form based thing in the universe as being like a little construction that has actually been created in the way a Lego or Meccano model might have been created, from a set of mathematical building blocks that in the end produce the shape required.
