And what, precisely, are we to do with this mathematical revelation?

If this was a Waldorf website, we'd come up with some cockamamie connection between this mathematical construct and man's will. Rolleyes Fortunately, it isn't.

Submit it to a learned journal for peer review.

Maybe the satanists will be interested, they like pentagrams.

And what is this discrimination towards pentagrams? Because odd number of points? I don't see people bitching about triangles or heptagons.

I think (and I could be wrong) that various neo-Pagans like pentagrams because the five points are supposed to represent the five classical elements.  Satanists probably like pentagrams because Christians are afraid of them.

But does it look good in a bikini?

I see old DBP still speaks the devils's tongue.

Yet, triangles gave us trigonometry and pentagrams gave nothing that can cause headaches. What is the evilest now?

A so-called 'triangle' that is drawn on the surface of a sphere.  Which is simply wrong, because (and Lobachevsky suck it) the interior angles of a triangle are supposed to add up to 180 degrees, no more, no less.  What gets inscribed on the surface of a sphere isn't a triangle, it is a Vortex of Evil.
