Heh,

It's trending on the Ycombinator news front page[^].

Looks like someone else discovered the unusual properties of the high-dimensional sphere packing geometry I mentioned last year.

A high-dimensional sphere spilling out of a high-dimensional cube despite exponentially many constraints[^]

Here are the atoms IBM imaged[^]. You are actually looking at the perimeter of the outer electron shell.

If the singularity at our galactic center contains particles (that move in higher dimensions) packed at the maximum density then their field lines are extending out past the Schwarzschild radius. You don't need dark matter, singularities build some kind of structure/field.

I discovered this strange geometry years ago. I also mentioned this last year[^] here on codeproject. The question is whether or not this represents anything in our physical world. Smile | :)

Best Wishes,
-David Delaune
