Simple geometry dictates that this particular tridimensional shape is one of the simplest to understand, and yet you can never see it fully through your own eyes,

Where you cannot watch, uncertainty roams free, and when uncertainty thrives so does fear.
Fear therefore can be derived from a simple cube; fear is transcedent, humans are not.
