Okay. However, the pyramids that are stuck in the sand, like in Egypt and other places around the world, have 5 sides. I don't know of any that are tetrahedrons, but maybe...........
pyr·a·mid
ˈpirəˌmid/Submit
noun
1.
a monumental structure with a square or triangular base and sloping sides that meet in a point at the top, esp. one built of stone as a royal tomb in ancient Egypt.
And therein lies the location of one of the more interesting rabbit holes I have found...
Study of a stellated octahedron (lets call it two interlocking three sided pyramids) and two interlocking four sided pyramids.

I have never seen a Merkabah composed of four-sided pyramids, nor have I heard of one.
That's because the math only works with 4 sides and not 5.
I have yet to use the term Merkaba due to its connotations It would be speaking about something different.
While it is referring to the same "shape," I prefer to look at it in terms of math and patterns, how those math and patterns relate to physical manifestation, and how the processes may apply to as yet unknown fields.
Exploring a topic using the same ideologies and patterns set forth by current and past interpretations will lead, roughly, to the same place. Using personal interpretations on the concepts (rather than the contexts) may lead to a different understanding of the pattern. It is using an individually unique pattern (my/your brain functions) to ideally find a new way to look at things rather than solely focusing on how others have done the same.

There's a reason we don't just copy and paste. We discuss.
Now we can stop arguing semantics and get back to the actual topic.
Especially seeing as how the post leading to this conversation wasn't directed to you
and I have established that I do in fact know what the hell I am talking about.
I don't mean to sound snarky;
however, I do grow impatient of arguing a pointless argument.
Particularly given that it could have derailed a conversation I deem to be of far more value and interest than the one I am about to end.
The "Tetrahedron Model" is a model of the devolution (asymmetric transformation) of light (free electromagnetic energy) into matter (bound electromagnetic energy), that is, of the relationship between the two forms of electromagnetic energy which constitute our Universe.
The "Tetrahedron Model" revolves around the conversion of light into matter and vice versa, as regulated by four conservation laws: the Conservation of Energy, Entropy, Symmetry, and Causality. These four conservation laws underlie the formulation of any Unified Field Theory.

The Four Worlds of Kabbalah
Kabbalah relates the Merkabah vision of Ezekiel and the Throne vision of Isaiah (Isaiah 6:1-8) describing the seraph angels, to its comprehensive Four spiritual realms.
Actually, a pyramid has 5 sides. One side is hidden from view, but it exists.
A tetrahedron has only 4 sides.

I don't understand what you're continuing to argue. I have proven that I was right from the beginning in calling it a pyramid, which was the sole basis of your complaint. Not that I'm really at all interested in being "right", more that you insist on making an issue out of a nonissue.

This was your original objection. I have proven it incorrect, in the quote definition defining a pyramid as having a square or triangle base. Do the math.
The 4-sided one you just mentioned. I call that a pyramid, because it looks like one. Stick it in the sand and there isn't any real difference between it and the ones you see in books and around the world.
I am done humoring you.
Do you know what has four sides? A pyramid.
