GeonAxis Game Title

GeonAxis was named because of the pattern recognition aspects in Biederman's Recognition-by-components theory.

Also the term geon (for geological eon) refers to large geologic time intervals. Geologists traditionally subdivide Earth history into a hierarchy of named intervals: eons, eras, periods, etc. (e.g. Jurassic Period of the Mesozoic Era).

The last inspiration for the word Geon come from that in theoretical general relativity, a geon is an electromagnetic or gravitational wave which is held together in a confined region by the gravitational attraction of its own field energy.

The term axis refers to the fact that the game can be played on a hextiled sphere that would spin on its axis representing a world domination style game with a spherical game board. (all hexagon grid with the exception of 12 pentagons to allow spherical tiling).
