Nobel Prize Application - Phillips Theory

To My Maths Friends -

I am requesting the nobel prize, and 6 flights to Monte Carlo, after my discovery of the 'Phillips Box' - i have coined.
In my theory, the co-ordinates:
z=-5
x=5
y=5
y=-5
x=-5
z=5
When plotted on the Cartesian plane, together make a perfect cube.

I will be happy to receive my nobel prize by next wednesday.
Thanks, Mr. Phillips (Founder of the Phillips's Box)

Re: Nobel Prize Application - Phillips Theory

I regret to inform you that this is a derivative of my cube, whose vertices in Cartesian 3-space have the coordinates:

(k,k,k)
(k,k,-k)
(k,-k,k)
(k,-k,-k)
(-k,k,k)
(-k,k,-k)
(-k,-k,k)
(-k,-k,-k)

where

and for which I have already been awarded the Fields Medal. As we speak, I am struggling to do the same for the hypercube. I suspect it will have 16 vertices, but the mathematics involved is nearly intractable.

So many things are wrong with the original post that I conclude that it must be a troll.

I was a bit amused, so I played along.

Re: Nobel Prize Application - Phillips Theory

Can I apply for a Nobel Prize in mathematics (to which there isn't one) too?

Because my 'mathemagic' work on my tests should give me an award of some kind.

Re: Nobel Prize Application - Phillips Theory

I'm so worthy of said nobel prize, and flights to Monte Carlo, that you all can't comprehend my amazing theory.
I deserve said nobel prize for my theory, and my cool hat. The nobel prize is MINE!
