COLGeek: Again thanks for your prompt reply. I had already read one of those wiki articles.
I was trying to ascertain where the rule originated and how it applied to the symmetry of stars. I have an idea that the symmetry of stars can be explained by fractal geometry but somehow Monster Group may play a part.
I am looking for a simple explanation of something that is very complex and difficult to explain.
Thank you again
Aus 😊

That simple explanation from the You-tube clip was exactly what I was looking for. The other links were fantastic also. I don’t feel so dumb now after I heard John Conway say he didn’t completely understand it. 😁
….. and I had the feeling that string theory would get a mention.
Thanks so much Cat 😊😊
