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)

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.

Oh, I could tell.

I deserve said nobel prize for my theory, and my cool hat. The nobel prize is MINE!
