Polychorons are the 4D version of polyhedrons. One way to visualize a polychoron is to apply a 4D to 3D stereographic projection to it. A dodecaplex is a uniform 4D polychoron composed 120 dodecahedral cells. These cells can be divided into 12 rings (Hopf fibrations) of 10 cells each. This picture shows a stereographic projection of 6 rings of the dodecaplex. Each ring is shown in a different color, but only 5 rings are open to direct view because they are wrapped around the 6th ring. I first saw this concept on Matthias Weber’s book page.
