Okay, so one other question (I'm getting what you're saying around the edges, but I don't fully understand it): when you say "4.4" or "4.3.4", what do those numbers reference?

It’s Schläfli notation, where the Numbers are for sides and vertices and such.

{4} is a square, {4,4} is an infinite tiling of squares, as each vertex has 4 adjoining squares. A cube is {4,3}. Infinite cubes are {4,3,4}. Triangles are {3}, hexagon {6} and their infinite tilings are {3,6} and {6,3} respectively.

Okee. That makes sense on the edges. Math and I are frenemies, so I'm going to have to let this percolate in the brain pan a bit. Thank you!
