The Octahedron Group A
This group is a very interesting one, containing as it does the element Carbon.
so important in organic chemistry. The members of the group occur at the
extreme limits of the left-hand swing of the pendulum. Their characteristic
form is that of an octahedron, rounded at the angles and a little depressed
between the faces in consequence of the rounding. In fact, it was not at
first recognized as an octahedron, and was called the "corded bale ".
these elements are tetravalent and have eight funnels opening on the eight
faces of the octahedron. Here, as usual, we find that the number of funnels
is twice the valence.
The conception of the four valencies of Carbon pointing to the four corners
of a tetrahedron, so much used in organic chemistry, at once comes to the
mind. It is obvious that if four of the eight funnels are used, these
would give forces pointing in the required directions in space. This
subject is further illustrated in the descriptions of the Carbon compounds
in Chapter XIII.

gives us the fundamental octahedron form, which becomes so marked in Titanium
globe. In the centre of the octahedron is a globe containing four Anu,
each within its own wall, these lie on the dividing lines of the faces
and each holds a pair of funnels together. It seems as though this Anu
had been economically taken from one Ad6 in the funnels, to form the link.
The funnels are in pairs, one of each pair showing three "cigars" and
having as its fellow a funnel in which the middle "cigar" is truncated,
having lost one Anu. Each Ad6 has a leaf-like body at its base, the six
together making up one Hydrogen atom.
- Carbon = 4 + 4C27 + 4C26
- Centre = 4 Anu
- Four funnels of 27 Anu = 108
- Four funnels of 26 Anu = 104
- Total = 216 Anu
- Number weight 216 / 18 = 12.00tk

globe. The central body is made up of the five interlaced tetrahedrons,
Ne120, with a ring of seven Anu round an eighth, that forms the minute
centre of the whole. Into this elaborate body one hundred and twenty-eight
Anu are built.
this centre comes a ring of twelve ovoids each holding within itself fourteen
Anu, distributed among three contained spheres, two quartets and a sextet.
This is a new device for crowding in material Fig. 119.
Titanium has a complete Carbon atom distributed over the ends of its
four arms, a pair of funnels with their linking Anu being seen in each.
Then, in each arm, comes the elaborate body Ti88, with its eighty-eight
protrusion of the arms in Titanium and Zirconium suggests the old Rosicrucian
symbol of the cross and rose, but since they show at their ends the eight
carbon funnels with their characteristic contents they justify their relationship.
- Titanium = (Ne120 + 8) + 12Ti14 + 4(Ti88 + C27 + C26 + 1)
- Central globe = 128 Anu
- Ring = 168
- 4 arms = 352
- 8 funnels = 216
- Total = 864 Anu
- Number weight 864 / 18 = 48.00tk

has a similar design to Titanium, the Carbon atom being similarly distributed
and the central body identical in pattern. Fig. 120.
globe. The central globe resembles that of Titanium, being Ne120 + 8,
but the 12 ovoids in the ring are more elaborate, each containing 36 Anu
instead of 14.
The ovoid in the arm of Zirconium shows no less than thirteen secondary
globes, four of which make Ti88. These in turn contain altogether 69 smaller
spheres. So we have 212 Anu in each arm, Zr212. A whole Carbon atom is
distributed over the ends of the four arms, as in Titanium.
this way the clever builders have piled up in Zirconium no less than 1.624
- Zirconium = (Ne120 + 8) + 12Zr36 + 4(Zr212 + C27 + C26 + 1)
- Central globe = 128 Anu
- Ring = 432
- 4 arms of 212 Anu = 848
- 8 funnels = 216
- Total = 1624 Anu
- Number weight 1624 / 18 = 90.22tk

of funnels. Fig. 123.
globe. The central globe is formed on the same pattern as that of Cerium.
The central sphere is Ce27, and this is surrounded by 20 ovoids. These
ovoids are each of 36 Anu, Hf36. The total number of Anu in the central
globe is 747, Hf747.
Four funnels are of one type and four of another.
A. These four funnels contain the Zr212 group, but four ovoids Hf36,
similar to those in the central globe, are added. This makes a total of
B. These funnels are very similar to those in Cerium. We have first
the Ca160, next the Ce36 group, and then the two funnels of Carbon, still
without their linking Anu. In addition a small ovoid, Ge.11, containing
two triplets and a quintet, floats at the mouth of the funnel The total
number of Anu is 260.
- Hafnium = Hf747 + 4(Zr212 + 4Hf36) + 4(Ca160 + Ce36 + C27 + C26 + Ge.11)
- Central globe = 747 Anu
- 4 funnels A = 1424
- 4 funnels B = 1040
- Total = 3211 Anu
- Number weight 3211 / 18 = 178.388tk

element reproduces the features of Cerium while adding to them. Oddly enough,
the Carbon atom has here resumed the links which it lost in Cerium and
Hafnium. The Lithium spikes are here again, brought over presumably from
Actinium, but as Thorium is an octahedron there is now room for them in
the funnels. The special adaptation of the Antimony funnels has evidently
come along the spiral from Actinium also, and the central sphere is Lu819.
globe. This is the Lu819 which is used in so many [eight]
elements, including Radium and Uranium. It is formed from the Ce27
group at the centre and 24 ovoids of Ba33.
The eight funnels are of two types, four of each.
A contains the Zr212 and adds Sb128 and the group Sb113 + 3, or Ac116, which
occurs in Actinium. The total contains 456 Anu. Fig. 125.
B is formed of three groups. First a large group containing Ca160, Mo46
and # C. (The Carbon funnels have their linking Anu in this case.) Then,
on either side of the large group, we find a Lithium spike, 2Li63. The
total contains 386 Anu. Fig. 126.
- Thorium = Lu819 + 4(Zr212 + Sb128 + Ac116) + 4(Ca160 + Mo46 + C27 + C26 + 1 + 2Li63)
- Central globe = 819 Anu
- 4 funnels A = 1824
- 4 funnels B = 1544
- Total = 4187 Anu
- Number weight 4187 / 18 = 232.61tk
