## Creating a Jitterbugging VE was never so easy…

But what is it? Let’s start with the Vector Equilbrium (VE), also known as the *Cuboctahedron**,* or as Bukky called it a “*Heptaparallelohedron“*. Wikipedia says it simply, “In geometry, a cuboctahedron is a polyhedron with eight triangular faces and six square faces. A cuboctahedron has 12 identical vertices, with two triangles and two squares meeting at each, and 24 identical edges, each separating a triangle from a square.”

Buckminster Fuller demonstrated the “dancing” oscillation of an *Cuboctohedron* to and from a *Octahedron, *and the term “jitterbugging VE” was born. Many believe this is how toroidal fields self-orgainize on the atomic scale, and allow for the evolution and devolution of energy from state to state. What I found most intriguing is that as the jitterbug progresses, it passes through the *Icosahedron*! Much to be explored here…
