Hypercubes? Yes, and They're Cool, Too!

Here is a couple of really eye-popping videos of those mathematical constructs that exist fully in more than just three space-time coordinates, the second video showing up to six, all displayed in a manner consistent with what our 3-D monkey brains can process! Just because we can’t literally visualize these higher space-time dimensions doesn’t mean we can’t think about them. These are what mathematicians and cosmologists mean when they say “dimension,” as opposed to the much less precise hijacking of the term by the New Age to refer to mystical otherworldly places. Awesomeness.
