Get Cubed...  
Picture in your mind each of the following, and write down what you see. Try to describe them in as much detail as possible. The statements and questions in italics are just there to help in case you're having trouble envisioning a particular item, but you may want to include them in your description.

If you'd like to find out what your "Cube" means, add a comment with your descriptions, and I'll email you or im you. I don't want to post the answers as a comment, cause I don't want to give it away for the other people that want to take this. :) Also, make sure you write your own descriptions before reading anyone else's.


Imagine a desert.
This can be a real desert you know, one you've seen in pictures, or a pure fantasy.

In this desert, there is a cube.
How big is the cube?
What color? What texture?
What is it made of (if you can tell)?
Is it solid or hollow (if you know)?
How far is it from you?
Is it sitting flat on the sand, or in some other position?


Before you go on, write down at least five adjectives describing your cube - the mood it conveys as well as its physical qualities.

Now, in the desert, there is also a ladder.
What is the ladder made of?
Where is it (in relation to the cube)?
Approximately how many rungs does it have - many, several, a few?


In the desert, there is also a horse.
What kind of horse is it?
What color?
Where is it?
What is it doing?
Does it have a saddle or bridle, or not?
If so, what kind?


Somewhere in the desert is a storm.
What kind of storm is this?
Where do you see it?
And does it affect the cube, the ladder, and the horse, or not?
If so, how?


And finally, in this desert there are flowers.
Where are the flowers?
Are there many, or a few?
What color, what kind?

How big is the cube?

A: This cube is approximately 6 ft. by 6 ft. by 6 ft.

What color? What texture?

A: The cube is a deep blue, like the ocean, yet the color doesn't remain constant. It's like water partially solidified, the surface holds, but also ripples and wavers. As the sun hits it the colors change various shades of blue.

What is it made of (if you can tell)?

A:Like magic water?

Is it solid or hollow (if you know)?

It goes all the way through.

How far is it from you?

A: From the perspective in my minds eye it is about 40-50ft away.

Is it sitting flat on the sand, or in some other position?

A: It hovers a good 6ft. off the sand and it sits on its corner.

Before you go on, write down at least five adjectives describing your cube - the mood it conveys as well as its physical qualities.

A: Tranquil, deep, fluctuating, cool, calming, cleansing, smooth, irresistable.

Now, in the desert, there is also a ladder.
What is the ladder made of?

A: The ladder is made of aluminum

Where is it (in relation to the cube)?

A: It stands in front, and slightly to the right, so it obscures maybe 20% of the side.

Approximately how many rungs does it have - many, several, a few?

A: It has many rungs, a dozen or more.

In the desert, there is also a horse.
What kind of horse is it?

A: I have no idea.

What color?

A: yellow

Where is it?

A: Running well beyond the cube, horizontally... relative to my field of vision. Straight across and in back.

What is it doing?

A: Running

Does it have a saddle or bridle, or not?

A: No

If so, what kind?

Somewhere in the desert is a storm.

What kind of storm is this?

A: A thunderstorm with mucho lightining

Where do you see it?

A: It's approaching on the horizon.

And does it affect the cube, the ladder, and the horse, or not?
If so, how?

A: The cube becomes slightly darker and the ripples become more intense.

And finally, in this desert there are flowers.
Where are the flowers?

A: Scattered in clumps randomly

Are there many, or a few?

A: A few

What color, what kind?

A: Sickly yellow dandylions


Whew.
Thanks. Now my imagination is tired. hehe.

^^;;; I hope it's okay that I responded to this....
I'm not sure if I'm supposed to describe the desert so I am anyway just in case...
The desert seems to go on and on in every direction. The sand is white and very clean looking. It's evening and the sky varies from purple to midnight blue. A full silver moon hangs low in the sky.(Pretty obvious I made this place up, eh?)
The cube is laying about three feet from me. It appears to be made of glass. Inside it what looks like smoke is whirling around. It's constantly changing from one color to another. Half covered with sand and on it's side so a corner is pointing up to the sky. It appears as though it could fit in my hand.
1)Emotional
2)Mysterious
3)Sharp
4)Lost
5)Confusing
The ladder is made of wood. It's laquered black and broken in two. Splinters from it scatter all around the scene. It's about ten feet behind and to the right of the cube. It has several rungs.
The horse is and Arabian. It's black in color and wearing a turqoise rope halter. He's standing near the ladder pawing at the broken parts. Looking around alertly.
It's a wind storm. It scares away the horse. The wind is so strong it lifts up the ladder and carries it away. The only thing that remains unmoved is the cube.
The flowers are dark purple and scattered around the cube. They're all pretty close to it. The furthest one away is about two inches. They're lilies.

Did I do it right?

cube thing
hi, i don't know you but i found this site by cliking on 'by Dionae' on the 'which degree of inner turbulance are you?' quiz (grate quiz by the way) anyway i did that cube thing, i'm not sure if i did it right though, i think i wrote to much. anyway if your not to busy some time maybe you could e-mail me the enswers? anywho here:
Desert
The desert is wide and stretches as far as the eye can see, there is a heat haze from the sun which blares down from the cloudless sk. The sky is not a bright blue, but a misty one which makes the desert seem humid. There is nothing in the deasert but a single palm tree and a mountain in the distance.

cube
the cube is a is a few meaters away from me, it is hard to sea as it is coted with sand, exactly the same colour as the desert. It has a rough texture. If I were to stand next to it it would come up to about my knee.

Adjectives
Rough, camaflaged, plain, tense, still.

Ladder
it is a step ladder opened out a few meters right of the cube. It has about 3 rungs before the top step. It a cheep meatal, some of it is more shiney than other bits as it has been used a lot.

Horse
The horse is tall, strong with a shiney chestnut brown coat, it’s mane is a sandy colour and quite short. It has taken the place of the ladder and stands completely still, only blinking occationally as a fly crawls around it’s eye. there is nothing attached to the horse.

Storm
The storm darkens the entire desert, the sky turns to a deep blue/greyas dark clouds quikely appear. There is a howleling wind and a tornadow in the distance. The horse crys out and runs away. The ladder appears again and is quikely blown down by the the wind. Rain starts to hammer down, the palm tree is gone. However the cube still has a heat haze around it and is now, although no brighter than before, the brightest thing in the desert, as if it were still reflecting the sun.

Flowers
There are flowers covering every inch of the desert, they are only about 15cm high and all different colours, including a lot of white. The horse is back and eating the flowers. The palm tree is also back and the ladder is upright. The sky is now a bright blue. The cube has lost it’s heat haze and looks plain (but not dull) against the flowers

my e-mail address is free_thinkin@yahoo.co.uk. or my journal is www.deadjournal.com/users/deep_dreamer (which is really boring and nobody reads, but seeing as i read some of yours..)
anyway, thanx, bye

The Cube
Hi, I was wondering if there was a particular website you got the guidelines for The Cube from? Like a site that has interpretations of common descriptions of each of the objects that are described. I did this same exercise months ago, and wanted to do it again, since things have changed. That, and I don't remember what I wrote anymore, so that's beneficial. Thanks :)

The Cube
heh I just added a comment about a possible website you got the guidelines from, but never added my email address...
it's caalis@hotmail.com. Thanks again
