I solved the above problem! (Sorry if you read it already lol)

This is the correction:

    if sum(((XR.^2/a^2 + YR.^2/b^2 + ZR.^2/c^2) >= 1)) < 5

I allow 4 false statements, rather, 4 surface points to satisfy the region. No ellipsoids are capable of obeying that condition, and I think I know why.

Now my problem is this: find a way to shorten the a_E vector and cycle through all possible a_E vectors as well. Aiyaiyai.

Thanks
