An excerpt of Chris' article follows:
The main thrust of the article [which appeared in Khimiyai Zhizn (Chemistry and Life), the popular science journal of the USSR Academy of Sciences under the title: "Is the Earth a Large Crystal?"], based on studies made by the three collaborators of data taken from fields as widely separated as archaeology, geochemistry, ornithology and meteorology, was the suggestion that the earth projects from within itself to the surface a dual geometrically regularized grid. The first part of this grid forms twelve pentagonal slabs over the sphere from which evidence the research triumvirate suggested that the first shape of the earth had just such an outline. In other words, it was a dodecahedron.
While this allegation may seem fantastic, the idea of the earth as a geometric shape goes back in history at least to the Pythagorean school of thinking in ancient Greece. Its famous adherent, Plato, wrote that "the earth, viewed from above, resembles a ball sewn from twelve pieces of skin." The other part of the grid, says the three Russians, causes the ball to be sewn from twenty equilateral triangles, making of the planet an icosahedron. By superimposing the entire dual grid over the face of the planet, the researchers say they have discovered what possibly may be the earth's energy structure or skeleton.
