34 Mars, Earth and Venus spaced The next planet out from Earth is the fourth planet, Mars. Kepler had tried a dodecahedron spacing the orbits of Mars and Earth and an icosahedron spacing Earth from Venus see page 12, and, coincidentally, it turns out he was very close to the mark. The dodecahedron made of twelve pentagons and the icosahedron made of of twenty equilateral triangles are the last two of the five perfect polyhedra the Platonic Solids. They form a pair, as each creates the other from the centres of its faces below. Opposite, they appear in bubble form inside Mars spherical orbit. The dodecahedron magically produces Venus orbit as the bubble within opposite top 99.98, while the icosahedron defines Earths orbit through its bubble centres lower opposite 99.9. In the ancient sciences the icosahedron was associated with the element of water, so it is appropriate to see it emanating from our watery planet. The dodecahedron represented aether, the life force, here enveloping lively Earth, and defined by her two neighbours. Venus and Mars Earth and Mars
