asymmetric dynamism – intrinsic attribute of the bodal wheel in which left/right balance or symmetry is attained via rotation and the superimposition of periodically mirrored time events (see graphic)

bode – abbreviation of cuboctahedron (see graphic), qualifying form: bodal

bode element – a geometric element of the cuboctahedron: vertex, edge, square, and triangle (see graphic)

bode orientation – any of 4 basic cuboctahedron positions in which a specified element – edge, vertex, square, or triangle – is topmost (-up) or directly faced (-out) (see graphic)

bode pattern – the potentiality of all bode elements arranged 3-dimensionally by interpenetrating tetrahedra and octahedra to infinity (see graphic)

bodal disc – the bodal wheel oriented such that its motion parallels a surface of travel (see graphic)

bodal prism – a local representation of the geocentric cuboda positioned according to either of the 4 bode orientations whereby sloping bode elements specify the maximum slopes of wave-formed mounds, berms, and embankments (see graphic)

bodal shift – in the hexagonal aspect of the bode pattern, a 60º shift of a defined cuboctahedron such that one of its squares mirrors that of an adjacent unshifted cuboctahedron, with the line shared by them required to align with the mobile construct’s direction of travel (see graphic)

bodal turbine – see fluid dynamic cuboda

bodal wheel – an interpretation of the cuboctahedron in which the central (hexagonal) plane is vertically-aligned central plane and bisects its intrinsic central sphere to form a 6-spoked circle turned via the suggested asymmetric dynamism of the 3D structure surrounding it, the axis of which spans the midpoints of its transversely opposing triangles (see graphic)

celestial (co-) cubes – either or both abstract cubes situated on the two opposing equatorial squares of the co-axially aligned geocentric cuboda (see graphic)

cubed geocentric cuboda – the geocentric cuboda in which the celestial co-cubes are appended to its opposing equatorial squares (see graphic)

cuboda – alternative abbreviation of cuboctahedron (see graphic)

cuboctahedron – semi-regular Archimedean solid having 12 identical vertices, with 24 identical edges spanning them and shared by 6 squares and 8 triangles, the lengths of which are equal to the length from each vertex to the center (see graphic) abbreviations: bode or cuboda

edge-up bode (or prism) – the bode orientation in which any external line or edge is topmost (see graphic)

equatorial axes – an imaginary axes spanning the midpoints of the geocentric cuboda’s opposing elements and used to position orthogonal bode elements to a specified latitude (see graphic)

extra-terrestrial angle – any angle(s) of a particularly oriented bodal prism’s sloping bode elements that is or are shallower than one explicitly utilized (see graphic)

fluid dynamic cuboda – the bodal wheel oriented and utilized to move (or be moved by) gases or liquids with special reliance on the bode’s 4 internal hexagons (see graphic)

geocentric cuboda – the cuboctahedron in which the center sphere of its spherical manifestation is ascribed to earth, and such that its default orientation is characterized by any pair of opposing intrinsic internal lines coinciding with earth’s axis of rotation (see graphic)

grid juncture (intra- or inter-) – the point where 2, 3, or 4 grid lines intersect at 90º (intra) or 135º (inter) angles. Derived from geocentric cuboda’s vertex-up prism which guides wave-formed mounds supporting a lone tree, lamp post, etc. (see graphic)

hexagonal shift (h-shift) – the bodal wheel bisected along a central hexagonal plane, with one half rotated 60° so that squares and triangles match the corresponding planes of the other half to thereby neutralize the wheel’s attribute of asymmetric dynamism (see graphic)

hexagonal expansion (HXP) – transverse expansion of the hexagonal-shifted bodal wheel’s central hexagonal plane to form a 3D structure comprised of an alternation of triangular prisms (see graphic)

hexagonal extension (HXT) – an alternating triatngular prism-based form extended from a hexagonal plane and capped by bisected bodal form which is hexagonally-shifted relative to the hexagonal plane’s bode pattern orientation (see graphic)

inherent angle – any angle of a particularly oriented bodal prism’s sloping bode element that is steeper than one explicitly utilized (see graphic)

macrocosmic wheel – the bodal wheel in the context of the geocentric cuboda by which the design of wheel-related artifacts fixed to the earth are guided, specifically through use of a local microcosmic representative (see graphic)

neutralized wheel – a bodal wheel that has undergone the hexagonal shift such its intrinsic asymmetric dynamism is neutralized by the fixed symmetry attained (see graphic)

octahedron – regular polyhedron characterized by 6 identical vertices joined by 12 identical lines shared by 8 equilateral triangles encasing 3 internal squares (see graphic)

polar-rotational grid (P-R grid) – the rectilinear grid defined by earth’s polar and rotationally-directed vectors and corresponding to lines of longitude and latitude, respectively (see graphic)

primary rotation – relative rotation of the coaxial geocentric cuboda around the earth to a required longitude (see graphic)

rational accretion (of spheres) – one-by-one placement of equal-sized spheres such that each of 12 contacts a central sphere and 4 of the others in an identical way, with the underlying form of joined sphere center-points being the cuboctahedron (see graphic)

secondary rotation – after primary rotation to a required longitude, rotation of the geocentric cuboda about either of the axes spanning opposing equatorial bode elements such that an orthogonal element is positioned to a specified latitude (see graphic)

square-up bode (or prism) – the bode orientation in which any of the cuboctahedron’s 6 squares is topmost and directed vertically (see graphic)

square pyramid – polyhedron that is essentially half of an octahedron with 4 adjoining equilateral triangles arrayed around a square (see graphic)
