The mystical Dodecahedron
In Plato’s dialogue with Timaeus,
each one of the elements is linked to a certain Platonic solid:
the element of earth would be a cube,
of air an octahedron, of water an icosahedron,
and of fire a tetrahedron.
The fifth element (i.e. Platonic solid) was the dodecahedron,
and was taken to represent the shape of the Universe as a whole.
Quintessence, literally ’fifth essence’, refers to (A)ether, the fifth element, that fills the universe beyond the terrestrial sphere.
Unravel creates a series of mystifying formations, emerging from the Dodecahedron.
