"to signify the deity, a Persian mystic speaks of a bird that is somehow all birds; Alain de Lille speaks of a sphere whose center is everywhere and circumference nowhere; Ezekiel, of an angel with four faces, facing east and west, north and south at once… the central problem — the enumeration, even partial enumeration, of infinity — is irresolvable." -from The Aleph by Jorge Luis Borges
(Icosidodecahedra from Perspectiva Corporum Regularium by Wentzel Jamnitzer, 1568)
