The Tesseract Hypercube

The universe of the Creator consists of a tesseract, which acts as a frame of reference for the fourth-dimensionality aspect of the work. It represents the mind of the Creator and in practical terms establishes the spatial boundaries as well as the symbolic structure that contains it.

In geometry, the tesseract 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. (Source: Wikipedia)
