EvenNumber Shell Growth: The tetrahedron, octahedron,
cube, and
rhombic dodecahedron are nuclear agglomerations generated
only by evennumbered
frequencies:

415.11 When they finally learned that the inventory of data required the isolation of the neutron, they were isolating the concave. When they isolated the proton, they isolated the convex. 
415.12 As is shown in the comparative table of closestpacked, equiradius nucleated polyhedra, the vector equilibrium not only provides an orderly shell for each frequency, which is not provided by any other polyhedra, but also gives the nuclear sphere the first, or earliest possible, polyhedral symmetrical enclosure, and it does so with the least number^{__}12 spheres; whereas the octahedron closest packed requires 18 spheres; the tetrahedron, 34; the rhombic dodecahedron, 92; the cube, 364; and the other two symmetric Platonic solids, the icosahedron and the dodecahedron, are inherently, ergo forever, devoid of equiradius nuclear spheres, having insufficient radius space within the triangulated inner void to accommodate an additional equiradius sphere. This inherent disassociation from nucleated systems suggests both electron and neutron behavior identification relationships for the icosahedron's and the dodecahedron's requisite noncontiguous symmetrical positioning outwardly from the symmetrically nucleated aggregates. The nucleation of the octahedron, tetrahedron, rhombic dodecahedron, and cube very probably plays an important part in the atomic structuring as well as in the chemical compounding and in crystallography. They interplay to produce the isotopal Magic Number high point abundance occurrences. (See Sec. 995.) 
415.13 The formula for the nucleated rhombic dodecahedron is the formula for the octahedron with frequency plus four (because it expands outwardly in fourwavelength leaps) plus eight times the closestpacked central angles of a tetrahedron. The progression of layers at frequency plus four is made only when we have one ball in the middle of a fiveball edge triangle, which always occurs again four frequencies later.

assemblage is always

415.15 To arrive at the cumulative number of spheres in the rhombic dodecahedron, you have to solve the formula for the octahedron at progressive frequencies plus four, plus the solutions for the balls in the eight triangles . 
415.16 The first cube with 14 balls has no nucleus. The first cube with a nucleus occurs by the addition of 87ball corners to the eight triangular facets of a fourfrequency vector equilibrium.

415.17 Nucleated Cube: The "External" Octahedron: The minimum allspace filling nuclear cube is formed by adding eight EighthOctahedra to the eight triangular facets of the nucleated vector equilibrium of tetravolume20, with a total tetravolume involvement of 4 + 20 = 24 quanta modules. This produces a cubical nuclear involvement domain (see Sec. 1006.30) of tetravolume24: 24 × 24 = 576 quanta modules. (See Sec. 463.05 and Figs. 415.17AF.) 
415.171 The nuclear cube and its six neighboring counterparts are the volumetrically maximum members of the primitive hierarchy of concentric, symmetric, pretimesize, subfrequencygeneralized, polyhedral nuclear domains of synergeticenergetic geometry. 
415.172 The construction of the first nuclear cube in effect restores the vector equilibrium truncations. The minimum to be composited from closestpacked unit radius squares has 55 balls in the vector equilibrium. The first nucleated cube has 63 balls in the total aggregation.
