This is the neatly-connected CV we recognize at Chessboard Math and that inspires our 84-cell variation, more or less from tetrahedral numbers Mark Thompson talks about here. Actually, there instead, square numbers 1 and 4 are also tetrahedral numbers, and the total 84 is tetrahedral number, also being 1+9+25+49, four levels.
