Conventionally, **Orders **of Magnitude are multiples of 10.

**Shapes** of Magnitude however, define volumes in 3D space and are thus of geo-**metric** relevance. Conceptually, they are “Metric Containers” in Space, e.g.

**3D Cubes** – the fundamental Difference of Definition:-

**1**x**1**x**1**as Digital and Orthogonal Unit – in contrast to*a*x*b*x*c*as the*generalised algebraic*formula.

**3D Spheres** – as 3D Containers for 2D Shapes:-

**Double Cones**and Octagons are*“Digitally Metric”*2D Shapes in contrast to- 4 / 3 x 1
^{3}x π as Spherical Unit –

in addition to conventional **3D Polygons** or Platonic Solids:

- Tetrahedron – 4 faces;
- Cube – 6 faces;
- Octahedron – 8 faces;
- Dodecahedron – 12 faces;
- Icosahedron – 20 faces.
