The Cube

When he measured it, he found it was a square, as wide as it was long. In fact, its length and width and height were each 1,400 miles.

(Revelation 21:16) NLT

Consider this: if God isn’t logical then why is he going to he create a place for us to live in for eternity which has equal X, Y, Z dimensions? There’s nothing more in-your-face logical than a cube.

Depictions of this seem to have gotten better over time and it’s been incorporated into popular culture in a variety of ways. It’s also gone full-circle and found its way into religioun.

This woodcut has a city which is square, but it’s on the Earth and it’s not at the top of a great mountain. The city in the image doesn’t fit the plan for Jerusalem of the Millennial Kingdom or the new Earth.

Fortunately, lots of people have worked on ideas about what the new Jerusalem may look like.

These are getting more sophisticated over time and incorporate 3D modeling and virtual reality.

And, as you may expect, it’s been assimilated into the Star Trek universe along with the ridiculous farce that you call popular science (SciPop).

In geometry, the tesseract is the four-dimensional analogue of the cube; the tesseract is to the cube as the cube is to the square.

Before time began, there was the Cube. We know not where it comes from, only that it holds the power to create worlds and fill them with life.

In the beginning of the world, there was the cube.

Moslem religious observances include a pilgrimage to the Kabah, Mecca.

There doesn’t seem to have been much of an emphasis on figuring out what the new heaven and new Earth, with its cubic city the new Jerusalem as described in the Bible, will be like. Perhaps we can improve on that. We’ll see what we may deduce over the next few days.

1+1 = 2 is math, but it is also logical. It’s an example of cause and effect.
