Emergence theory focuses on projecting the 8-dimensional crystal known as the *E8 lattice *to 4D and then representing the resulting, projected *4D* *quasicrystal* in a 3D quasicrystal on which reality as we know it emerges*.*

When the *fundamental 8D cell *of the E8 lattice – a shape with 240 vertices known as the “Gosset polytope” – is projected to 4D, two identical, 4D shapes of different sizes are created. The ratio of their sizes is the* golden ratio. *Because of the particular angle of projection from 8D to 4D, each of these shapes is constructed of 600 *3-dimensional* *tetrahedra *rotated from one another by a golden ratio based angle. We refer to this 4D shape as the “600-Cell.” The 600-cells interact in specific ways (they intersect in 7 golden ratio related ways and “kiss” in one particular way) to form the 4D quasicrystal.
