# Thread: The cube test (don't look at the answers/spoiler till you describe it all).

1. Had the question used any other word than 'room', I would have pictured oblivion, designed like space. But for this question, I pictured a room the size of a high school auditorium. The cube is fairly large, about the size of a car cut into two symmetrical uniform components. It is placed in the exact center of the room, and floating halfway between the floor and the ceiling. It is translucent, with faint streams of light flowing around the interior, but mostly opaque. It is red in color, for some reason unbeknownst to me. A ladder is placed against the wall. It is definitely climbable, being around 15-20 foot tall. There is a considerable distance between the cube and the ladder. A horse is perched on the top of the cube. It's brownish-yellow appearance is distinct. Well, the horse is not tied to something or restricted by a foreign object, but if it falls off the cube it would be seriously injured (not dead). It does not have a saddle, at least not a discernible one. The horse does not make me feel anything. On the contrary, I'm curious about the horse's participation in this scenario. Nope. No flowers at all (but I won't die a virgin). A miniature storm is occurring in the far corner of the room, the horse and the cube are fairly unperturbed by its presence. The storm is no more intense than a slight whirlwind. I feel superior, almost disdainfully indifferent, towards the storm. It can't hurt me.

2. Seems like horse feathers to me.

I found it difficult to translate some of my own references into the analysis at the end. The parts that made sense seemed to have about a 50% accuracy rate. The implied dichotomy between imagination and analysis is inexplicable. Some of the measures are vague; number of flowers represents number of kids, but what is the ratio? I imagined seven, so does that mean I want seven kids? I don't want any, so that seems hard to explain. Color theory itself is always silly, and right off the bat, black, the color of my cube, some represents both authority or submission.

Silliness.

3. 1. Cube
Imagine a room with nothing in it.
How big is the room? Is it very large, small, etc? Is there a room or are you imagining vast open space?
r? white
I should kick it! Its spacey.

How do you feel towards the storm? excited its a bit surreal.

You know I don't want a horse!:P

4. What I wrote:
1. The room is small-sized, it's floating in black nothingness, in space but not really. The cube is not really that big or small, kind of like a washer or a dryer. It sits in a corner on the ground, what I face depends on what angle I'm looking from! It's solid and light grey, pretty boring.

2. The ladder is on one of the walls the cube is touching, it's centered attached to the wall, following a square white brick pipe that goes about 10-20 meters. I would be able to climb it, though I would hurt myself bad if I fell. It's made out of steel and the color is red, looks pretty cool. It's very cold!

3. The horse is in the absolute center of the room, so just about 2-3 meters away from the cube and the ladder, it's roaming free and doesn't have a saddle, it's brown and eating grass; from where I don't know! It looks peaceful enough, though it's best to always be cautious when dealing with animals you've never met! It makes me feel less alone, but also weird.

4. There are no flowers.

5. The storm is a tornado rather, it's in the room and it's grasping the horse! It's annoying and seems dangerous, I wouldnt want to go near it.

All in all pretty cool test.

5. 1. Cube

The room is about the size of my own bedroom - neither too big nor too small. Even though it is a room though, it feels more like a vast open space, given that I imagine everything to be painted white.

The cube is also neither too large nor too small. In relation to the room though, it is small.
The cube is floating in the air, in the middle of the room.
When I look at the cube, I am facing a side.
The cube is somewhat transparent, and is composed of a few bright colors (mostly red, yellow, green, and blue). I am attracted to all of those colors.

The ladder is standing on the side opposite to myself and the cube.
It is leaning against the wall.
The ladder is tall enough that the top of it would almost reach the ceiling if it were standing upright.
I would be able to climb it easily. I imagine that the ladder is my opportunity to escape the room - so I guess it would mean that I feel hopeful?

3. Horse

The horse is standing against the wall opposite to me.
It is about the same distance away from the cube as the ladder is from the cube.
The horse is right next to the ladder.
It is roaming free, and does not have a saddle.
The horse is a dark sable color. I love that color on the horse. I feel compassionate towards the horse, as if it belongs only to me.

4. Flowers

There are flowers in the room.
How many flowers? Too many to count, I suppose.
They are directly underneath the cube, in the center of the room.
The flowers are of different colors - red, pink, yellow, and purple. I feel happier and more alive, looking at them all.

5. Storm

It is a heavy rainstorm - though I guess I can't really call it a "storm", since there's no lightning or thunder.
The storm is large, but not all encompassing. It is directly above the cube and the flowers as well as myself.
It is neither a slight drizzle nor a category 5 hurricane. It's just a heavy rainfall.
I don't mind the storm - in fact, I love the rain all on its own.

6. Okay, I just saw the answers... why did I have to imagine so many flowers?

EDIT: Also, what does it mean if I love the storm? Does it mean that I love facing challenges in my life, or something else?

7. @Riva ... Sorry this took so long.

**I just went back and read the interpretation, That's really interesting.. I liked it, thanks for sharing.

8. 1. Cube

Imagine a room with nothing in it.

How big is the room? Is it very large, small, etc? Is there a room or are you imagining vast open space?

Medium Size (Like a large living room), White, minimalistic, padded.

Place in the room a cube.

How big is the cube? How big is it in relation to the room?

The size of a sculpture that could fit on a stand. About 1 metre x metre.

Where is the cube in the room?

In the centre.

Is the cube on the ground or floating in the air?

On a stand.

When you look at the cube are you facing a corner or a side?

A side.

Is the cube transparent or opaque? (Can you see through it or is it solid?)

Opaque.

What color is the cube? What do you think about that color?

Multiple, like a rubix, but varies witht he lighting and where you stand. It looks good.

Place in the room a ladder.

Where is the ladder; in relation to the room?; in relation to the cube?
Is the ladder leaning against anything? Is it leaning on a wall or the cube?

Against a wall, far from the cub, relatively tall.

Would you be able to climb it easily?

Yes

What is the ladder made of? How do you feel towards this?

Metal, indifferent.

3. Horse

Now place in the room a horse.

Where is the horse in the room,

Lying by the cube near the middle, by the sofas.

How far is it from the ladder?

Far

Is it roaming free or tied to anything? Does it have a saddle?

What color is the horse? How do you feel about this color? How does the horse make you feel?

White. It is a highly regarded horse and proud of itself.

4. Flowers
First, are there flowers in the room? (if no, skip the #5)

No.

5. Storm
Add a storm. Describe the storm.

Is it huge and all encompassing?

No.

Is it in the room itself or do you perceive it to be outside?

Outside.

What is the intensity of the storm? Is it a slight drizzle or a category 5 hurricane?

A thunderstorm, lighting and thinder, ehavy rain, wind is not too strong. It is a normal storm, it will pass with no structurl damage, of course you would not go outside in it.

How do you feel towards the storm?

Glad to be inside! It is awe inspiring but intimidating.
@Riva

9. Room like living room, average size. Cube big plastic green with white dots , ladder against the wall , horse white standing looking at me/ feeling friendly- between ladder and cube. Storm is outside and we are safe inside.

10. @JocktheMotie i would like to see you do this test.

I'm predicting that your horse would be big strong masculine and male because you are a bodybuilder.
