Song of the Day

A quick note on Song of the Day - from now on the Song of the Day will not only include a song and an artist, but will also include the actual music. This will be in the form of a Youtube video. Sometimes it will be a music video - other times it will simply be the music. To kick off this new format, we have:

This is a Tesseract

(Per Wikipedia)

In geometry, the tesseract, also called 8-cell or octachoron, is the four-dimensional analog of the (three-dimensional) cube, where motion along the fourth dimension is often a representation for bounded transformations of the cube through time. The tesseract is to the cube as the cube is to the square; or, more formally, the tesseract can be described as a regular convex 4-polytope whose boundary consists of eight cubical cells.
