Storyboard Text

  • I was amazed and interested from what I heard from you that day, Mr. Empedocles. I am sorry for not telling you, but after I heard you, I immediately started to look for books and study at the corner area of the library which is why I think that you did not notice me. 
  • Empedocles was so excited that Plato had also conducted a study on the universe.
  • Oh, is that so? Wow. It is okay. I am happy that you are interested from what I have studied. Oh! Mr. Aristotle, the man whom I had a conversation with earlier, also came up with his own theory.
  • Plato shared that he has studying and developing the theory of Empedocles. Empedocles was excited to hear what Plato had discovered.
  • Aristotle went back to the library to return the books that he borrowed. He was excited to share his new theory to the librarian who inspired him to study more about the seeds. 
  • Oh wow! That is great, Mr. Empedocles. I saw him looking for books during that day and I believe that he also saw me studying. But I think he did not know that I was also developing your theory, Mr. Empedocles.
  • Really? So, are you already done in coming up with a theory? 
  • Empedocles received the books with a wide smile.    
  • Aristotle went back to the library to return the books that he borrowed. He was excited to share his new theory to the librarian who inspired him to study more about the seeds. 
  • Plato excitedly shared what he had discovered in his study to Empedocles.
  • Yes, Mr. Empedocles.
  • I would gladly like to share it with you. I have discovered five geometrical solids with identical faces, regular polygons at the same three-dimensional angles. They consist of the tetrahedron (or pyramid), cube, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron.  
  • Wow! Can you tell me about it?
  • And what do these solids represent? 
  • Empedocles seemed amazed with what the man said so he placed the books on his desk and continued to listen to Aristotle’s idea.
  • Empedocles received the books with a wide smile.    
  • Aristotle went back to the library to return the books that he borrowed. He was excited to share his new theory to the librarian who inspired him to study more about the seeds. 
  • After reading the books and formulating his own theory about the universe, Anaxagoras went back to the library to return the books that he borrowed.
  • Empedocles seemed amazed with what the man said so he put the books aside and continued to listen to Aristotle’s idea.
  • Plato then briefly explained his discovery to Empedocles, which we now know as the Platonic Solids.
  • I associated them with the four basic elements—fire, air, water, and earth. The tetrahedron, with its sharp points and edges, is assigned to the element fire; the cube, with its regularity of four squares, to the earth; and the other solids concocted from triangles, which are the octahedron and the icosahedron, to air and water. The remaining regular polyhedron, the 12-pentagonal dodecahedron is assigned to the heavens with its 12 constellations.
  • Special thanks to you, Mr. Empedocles!
  • Ohh, that is an amazing discovery. I am honored that you have further expanded my theory. Thank you, Plato!
