# Cube

The cube is a three-dimensional SQUARE;
it is a symbol of stability and permanence, of geometric perfection. It represents
the final stage of a cycle of immobility, it can be seen as the truth, because
it looks the same from any perspective, it is commonly thought of as the counterpart
of the sphere. The cube is, in essence, the squaring of a circle. Scientifically,
the cube usually represents salt. It is the earth: a square plus the four elements
plus three dimensions. Frequently forms allegories with solidity and the persistence
of virtues, hence its relation to thrones or chariots.
