Four Views of a Tesseract, Rotating in Hyperspace

These tesseract views are all of the perspective projection-type, with the first one, above, being done in cell-first fashion.

The next one is projected edge-first.

The third one is projected vertex-first.

Lastly, face-first:

Although all of these are rotating in the same direction in hyperspace, the different projection-choices make the second and fourth images appear to be rotating in different directions. Why? I’m still trying to figure that out!
