- Take a dot (zero dimensional object) and move it any direction.
- Take a straight line (one dimensional object) and move it, the same distance, in a direction orthogonal to the first direction.
- Result is a square - called the 2-cube.
- Take a square (two dimensional object) and move it, the same distance, in a direction orthogonal to both the first two directions.
- Result is a cube - called the 3-cube.
- Take a cube (three dimensional object) and move it, the same distance, in a direction orthogonal to all the other directions !!!
and so on ...
This procedure results, at each stage, in the hypercube for that dimension or n-dimensional hypercube or n-cube.
