Spinning in Infinity

A note for day 13 of 2013

How the cube's 13 symmetry planes* 
are related to the finite projective plane
of order 3, with 13 points and 13 lines—

IMAGE- How the cube's symmetry planes are related to the finite projective plane of order 3, with 13 points and 13 lines

For some background, see Cubist Geometries.

* This is not the standard terminology. Most sources count
   only the 9 planes fixed pointwise under reflections  as
   "symmetry planes." This of course obscures the connection
   with finite geometry.
