The Comment You're Replying To

From 1996 this is like my idea at Chessboard Math for 1x1 over 3x3 over 5x5 over 7x7, all centered totalling 84 squares. Ward's Octahedral carries on the other way, and its 10x10 become too many. Octahedral would be pretty good with 2x2 over 4x4 over 6x6 over 8x8, totalling 120. Opposed to write-ups, we accept the Pyramid board-space that flashed across the mind as hybrid of Thompson's Tetrahedral and this Octahedral probably noticed then. xxx
