### Neologisms

....are made-up words, sometimes done for fun, sometimes done
because no other word

quite suffices. There are several of these in my work with "tetrahedraverse" (which is itself a neologism).

#### "Piont"

Note that this is just a slight mis-spelling of "point."
The mathematicians'/geometers'

"point" is not quite what I mean, but it is **so close**
in meaning that

I merely changed the lettering so as to avoid mathematicians
hollering at me for using a

"standard" math word in a nonstandard manner.

#### "Icosahedro(not)"

This is equivalent to 13 spheres closest-packed. If one uses
only 12, and one packs them most-

spherically symmetrically, one gets an actual (regular)
icosahedron. It is "hollow"; there is no

sphere inside. However, in the case of 13 spheres, there *is*
a sphere in the middle,

and this sphere "forces" the outer 12 outward a little,
allowing gaps to exist between the

spheres. So, the 13-sphere version of this object **looks**
like (a regular) icosahedron,

but it's **not**. (Get it?)

#### "Dirension"

This is obviously a fusion of the words "direction"
and "dimension."

It is useful because in the Icosahedro(not), all *directions*
from the center piont

are also functionally increments of *dimension* in
Tetrahedraverse.
