These are the only five regular polyhedra, that is, the only five solids made from the same equilateral, equiangular polygons. The Greeks taught that these five solids were the main patterns of all physical creation. Four of the solids were seen as the archetypal patterns behind the four elements - earth, air, fire and water - while the fifth was considered to be the pattern behind the life force itself, the ether or the universe.
