I thought I knew a lot about 4D, but, I guess I didn’t ;-(

solving 3^5 is my goal, and yet I can’t even do 3^4 !

And what do you mean by a deep understanding? I really want to master (know a lot about) the 4th dimension!

And off topic: I just did a 3^4 cross in 1 or 2 minutes! It was so surprising!
