These pages are to give flight to your imagination. Transitions of the transition: from haptihedron through the vector equilibrium. I named the first, the haptihedron, technically known as arhombicuboctahedron(see links). The second was referred to by R. Buckminster Fuller as the vector equilibrium is technically known as a cuboctahedron or cubo-octahedron. You can see how the two transitional structures are interrelated in an animation. Here you are inside the overlapping structures, right in the middle. You can move it around you.

Keys to the elements:

- green lines -- edges of a haptihedron
- red, blue, and yellow squares -- faces of the expanded cube in the haptihedron
- gold lines -- edges of a vector equilibrium
- light red, blue, and yellow squares -- faces of the expanded cube in the vector equilibrium
- white triangles -- faces of the expanded tetrahedrons in both models
