We start with a simple Lie algebra g generated by a set of extremal elements E over a field k of characteristic not 2. Here, a nonzero element x of g is called extremal if [x, [x, g]] = k x.
If x, y are distinct extremal elements of g, then x and y generate a Lie subalgebra isomorphic to either the 2dimensional abelian Lie algebra, the 3dimensional Heisenberg algebra h, or the 3dimensional Lie algebra sl_{2}. We assume that the second case does not occur in g. Moreover, we write k x ⊥ k y to denote that two extremal elements x and y generate the 2dimensional abelian Lie algebra.
We write P(E) = { k x  x ∈ E } and L(E)={ ({X, Y}^{⊥})^{⊥}  X, Y ∈ P(E) ∧ X ⊥ Y } and prove that (P(E) , L(E)) is a polar space.
