**11. The 4 _{21} polytope as the inner form of 10 Trees of
Life**

The 4 |
There are 240 white
dots & white sides of triangles in every 10 overlapping Trees of Life that either
belong solely to their outer form or are white centres of 100 of

The five corners & sides on each side pillar of the outer Tree of Life are shared with the
two hexagons in the inner Tree of Life because these pillars are their vertical axes. This means that (8n+2)
corners & sides in n overlapping Trees are shared with the 2n hexagons in their inner form. Any n overlapping
Trees of Life have (12n+4) triangles with (6n+4) corners and (16n+6) sides, i.e., (22n+10) corners & sides. Of
these, (8n+2) corners & sides are shared, leaving (14n+8) corners & sides that are unshared. 10 overlapping
Trees have **148** corners & sides of 124 triangles that are intrinsic to these Trees.
**148** is the number value of Netzach. Every 10 Trees have (14×10=**140**) corners
& sides of 120 triangles that are unshared with the **140** polygons making up their inner
form, where **140** is the number of *Masloth*, the Mundane Chakra of Chokmah. Every 10
Trees have (**140**+**140**=**280**) unshared corners & sides or centres
of separate polygons, where **280** is the number value of *Sandalphon*, the Archangel of
Malkuth. Two of the centres of the seven polygons enfolded in each Tree are corners of the latter, so that five
centres do not become corners as well when the separate polygons become enfolded. The 70 centres of the 10 sets of
seven polygons on either side of 10 Trees consist of 20 centres that become corners and
**50** centres that remain just centres. Hence, 100 of the **140** centres of
the **140** separate polygons remain just as centres when they are enfolded. 10 overlapping Trees
and the **140** separate polygons have (**148**+100=**248**) unshared
corners & sides belonging to the former or centres of the latter that do not become corners when they are
enfolded. For every 10 Trees, there are **140** unshared corners & sides and 100 pure
centres, that is, 240 geometrical elements, which either belong solely to the outer form of 10 Trees or are centres
of the polygons making up their inner form that remain just centres when they become enfolded. They comprise 120
corners/centres and 120 sides. 3360 corners & sides of triangles surround the centres of the 70 separate
polygons on either side of 10 overlapping Trees. So we discover that in every 10 Trees, 6720 corners & sides of
2820 (=10×**282**) triangles surround the centres of polygons, where **282** is the
number value of *Aralim*, the Order of Angels assigned to Binah. This leaves 240 corners & sides that do
not appear among the former when the polygons become enfolded (the centres of the hexagon & decagon in each set
of seven polygons become corners of the triangle and pentagon, which are counted amongst the 336 corners &
sides that surround the seven centres — hence, they are coloured green to indicate their exclusion from the count).
The 240 corners & sides comprise 120 unshared corners & pure centres of polygons and 120 unshared sides of
triangles in 10 Trees of Life.

Compare the appearance of the numbers 240 and 6720, which measure the numbers of corners &
sides in the outer and inner form of every 10 Trees, with the 240 vertices and 6720 edges of the
4_{21} polytope. The fact that the latter number manifests in 10 Trees of Life demonstrates the
Tree of Life nature of this polytope because this number of Trees represents the 10 Sephiroth of a single
Tree. Their counterpart in the UPA are the 240 gauge charges of E_{8} and the 3360 turns in each
revolution of its 10 whorls, each turn being a circularly polarised wave that is a supposition of two
perpendicular plane waves with a phase difference of 90°. In other words, *the
4 _{21} polytope represents not only the roots of E_{8} through its vertices but also
the form of the E_{8}×E_{8} heterotic superstring (UPA) through its 6720 edges, each edge
corresponding to a plane wave component of the 3360 circularly polarised waves making up one revolution of its
10 whorls*.

There is a 20:**50** division of the 70 polygons enfolded on either side of
the central Pillar of Equilibrium of 10 Trees of Life according to whether their centres become corners (20) or not
(**50**) when they become enfolded. This pattern exists in the distribution of the 70 yods in the 16
tetractyses of the outer Tree of Life into 20 yods that belong to the tetrahedron at its base and
**50** yods that make up the remaining 12 tetractyses. This division manifests in the
4_{21} polytope as the 120 vertices and 3360 edges in each half because their counterparts in the
outer and inner form of 10 Trees of Life are the 120 unshared corners & pure centres and 120 unshared sides in
the outer form of 10 Trees and the 3360 corners & sides that surround the centres of the 70 polygons enfolded
on either side of them. Here, once more, is the 120:120 division displayed by holistic systems that embody the
number 240. It was discussed in #2 as the compound of two 600-cells, each with 120 vertices, that
is the 4-dimensional, Coxeter plane projection of the 4_{21} polytope.

The way in which the outer & inner form of 10 Trees of Life represent the
4_{21} polytope was discussed in the section on this polytope in #2.
