Two Views of the Truncated Tesseract
The figure above, rotating in hyperspace, is an orthogonal projection of a fourdimensional polychoron known as the truncated tesseract. It is analogous to the truncated cube, one of the Archimedean solids. The image below is of the same figure, but … Continue reading
