The 4×6 rectangle of R. T. Curtis
illustrates the geometry of octads —

Counting symmetries with the orbit-stabilizer theorem

Curtis splits the 4×6 rectangle into three 4×2 “bricks” —


“In fact the construction enables us to describe the octads
in a very revealing manner. It shows that each octad,
other than Λ1, Λ2, Λ3, intersects at least one of these ‘ bricks’ —
the ‘heavy brick’ – in just four points.” . . . .
