ITE #004 Octahedron
by: Crispin B. Hollinshead

This is the fourth of the Intentional Technology Experiments (ITE), an edition of one.

This is a regular Octahedron (8 sides), the second of the five Platonic Solids. Each pair of crystal at the six nodes have been charged with the intention of Gratitude, Love, and Awakening. Five LEDs in each node shine through a graphic of the Flower of Life into the crystals, transferring the intention to the focal point of the structure.

The current for the LED's in the nodes flows through coils on each strut, creating an octahedral magnetic field around the center. The magnetic fields are balanced and carefully oriented. The platform in the focal point contains the Flower of Life graphic.

The interior crystals are Brazilian, and the exterior ones are from Arkansas. The materials are Rock Maple, Madrone, Glass, Brass, and Copper. The power is about 2.5 watts from a wall transformer.
