The Uncollapsable Tproton
Note added, upon redoing my website due to server HDD crash:
If, when using the balloon-plus-marbles tool/toy/demo above described, you get "stuck" with one of the 12
marbles in the middle of the other 11, you have a chance to observe an even more amazing property. Simply
place your thumb in the 'hole' where the 12th marble has sunk into the center, and your finger on the one
opposite, and squeeze, centering the two between your finger and thumb in the middle of the ring consisting
of the other 10, and then let go. (Don't let the thing fall on the floor...)
The tool/toy will POP! back into proper 12-around-none "Tproton" form !
