The Platonic solids are well-known in the third dimension, our everyday reality. But you may be surprised to find that some of them continue through all dimensions, ad infinitum. The fourth dimension is unique — it has one extra Platonic solid not seen in any other dimension. After that, for dimensions five and up, there exist only three Platonic solids, better known as the “regular polytopes”. This chart shows the solids’ family lineage through all the dimensions. In dimensions four and above, the components of the shape are called “cells”. Much like how a 3D solid is made up of 2D faces, a 4D shape is made of up of 3D cells. We cannot see higher dimensional shapes, so the figures above are artistic interpretations based on the lower-dimensional shapes they are made of. The icosahedron and dodecahedron stop at dimension four, never to be seen again.
