    Also hexagons are pretty common in nature because it's a pretty efficient shape as bees have discovered. It tessellates well and unlike other shapes that tessellate well, it takes less materials to build. Basically they are kinda like boxes that you can stack on top of one another, but you get more space in a hexagon than in a square for the same materials.
    Another word as to why is so magical and the bees are part of an hex is believe.

    Belief IS important. Don't ever let anyone tell you it isn't. Still, you need to recognize when you run into those points where your belief conflicts with reality.

    This doesn't mean that you need to give up on the core of your belief; it may simply mean that you need to refine it further. Instead of sending a man to the moon in a ballistic shell fired from an enormous cannon using gunpowder, you may instead develop high-strength alloys and high-impulse rocket fuel along with pressurized suits and navigational computers. The core of the idea remains the same, but the execution has become much more workable and elegant.

    Perhaps in some instances witchcraft can be inexpensive and if you have faith in your ability's you can push the boundaries this is after all a very magical planet. I am sometimes observant.
