Do you know what a hypercube is? It’s a cube with four dimensions. Or, if it’s easier to bend your head around it this way, a hypercube is to a cube what a cube is to a square.
We can’t perceive in four dimensions, yet physicists tell us there must be more than the normal three dimensions of space for their calculations to work. Whatever. The important thing today is that somebody figured out how to draw a four-dimensional object. If you can draw a 3-dimensional object on a 2-D surface, what’s to stop you from drawing a 4-D object?
They could have stopped there. Any sane person would. But somebody had to go and design a [rubick’s](http://www.rubiks.com/) hypercube. I hate those things. I once solved one by taking off all the stickers and carefully rearranging them. But this…! I don’t know if there is a word against this kind of crime.
