Correction: Jan. 16, 2006

“An obituary on Dec. 27 about John Diebold,
a businessman and engineer who helped shape
modern industrial development in America,
misstated a business venture of John Diebold Inc.,
an investment firm he founded in 1967. It did
not finance Diebold Election Systems, a maker of
polling machines that, despite its name, has no
connection to John Diebold.”

The same underlying geometries (i.e., "form") may be modeled with
a square figure and a cubical figure rather than with the triangular
figures of 1968 shown above.

See Finite Geometry of the Square and Cube.

Those who prefer a literary approach to form may enjoy the recent post As Is.

Before passing judgment on John Diebold’s immortal soul, the reader should note that it is not clear whether he was in fact connected with the controversial Diebold voting machines, although today’s New York Times says that his investment firm, John Diebold Inc., “financed such ventures as…  a well-known manufacturer of polling machines.”  The Times has been known to err.

A Jungian on this six-line figure:

“They are the same six lines that exist in the I Ching…. Now observe the square more closely: four of the lines are of equal length, the other two are longer…. For this reason symmetry cannot be statically produced and a dance results.”
