Mad about polyhedra II

In the childhood we learn about some simple 3D geometric figures like de pyramids and prisms. Even most of us build our own polyhedron shapes for homework in the primary school. However with the time, most of the people forget the existence of polyhedra. But it happens that one day in certain moment due to a strange cause you will find again a polyhedron and you will not let it go.
This situation happened to the chemist engineer Henry Chasey who decided to build its own fantastic polyhedra after seeing the Kepler’s platonic model in Carl Sagan’s Cosmos tv program. Therefore, since the 1980’s, Chasey built a huge collection of melted acrylic polyhedra.

I was a child when I had the question: till what number we can count?
Today I know that there is an infinite set of numbers but my question still remains with a little change: how many of the numbers have a name?

The concept of the time is something that is with us during all our life. We are born, we grow and we die… all the time with the time than seems to run in one direction with the same speed.
But, can it be possible to change its direction or to increase its speed? I mean. Can we travel to the past or to the future?

Waiting for something extraordinary…

Christmas came and also the days that passed too fast. Last year did not allow us to go to carol concerts, to visit belens neither to see the decorations or the theatre plays… this year was the same.
The city was crowded. Christmas time started since September with the commercial promotions in the stores full of Christmas products. TV was full of commercials as well. Everything to make you well among mobiles, computers, houses, insurances, trips… everything for Christmas happiness except the Christmas and the happiness.
