So, where are we so far?
These are three and four dimensional hypercubes. Let a fifth dimension be added, this time with a different rule, the four-dimensional cube is rotated, thus.
I thought this an interesting metaphor for transcendence. It makes no mathematical sense, before people throw up their hands in horror. Each cube is distorted momentarily by the action of the fifth operator - 'transcendence', causing it to appear to distort its own sense of reality before re-forming within orderly limits, maintaining symmetry.
Instead of a candle flame to meditate upon, if this were used instead, where might it lead?
