I'm eager to hear what you think about this.
If you disagree with the spheres implementation,
we can go back to the "just 6 edges" implementation.
However, I found the spheres to be useful.
The main change in this file is to remove the POV specific title and to add the !HELP section.

the longer I looked at this, the more I found the artificial light rays (modeled by edges) annoying.

reduced this file to just 1 sphere.
