Tesseract Earrings

$19.75

mini-tesseract-03.pngThese earrings depict, in three dimensional space, a four dimensional geometric solid known as the tesseract, or hypercube.  This mind-bending shape is a potent reminder of the narrowness of human understanding, and an emblem of realms beyond our perception.

As a 3-dimensional cube is bounded by 2-dimensional faces, the hypercube is bounded by 3-dimensional cubes (some of which must, by necessity, be distorted in our space). While our minds can never quite grasp the notion of a fourth spatial dimension, through visualizations such as the tesseract, we are able to appreciate what higher dimensions might imply, and how they might interact with our own space.

Cast in genuine pewter, with an attractive antiqued finish. A great accessory for all spacelanders with higher aspirations!
