When I first heard of this question, my mental image was a bright-green wireframe cube on a pitch-black background. And the cube spun on its own, making cute computer beeps. By that time I had about a year of experience with 8088 PCs, so the representation is directly related to some of the primitive graphic programs I saw. Before that, I almost sure I would have visualized a wooden block, also spinning on its own.

According to the magazine where I read this article, a woman visualized a sugar cube in the kitchen, then she imagined that she had cut his finger and a drop of blood fell on a face of the cube. She took the cube and stared at it for a while. Talk about ADD.

Why wouldn't you just think of an abstract, wireframe cube? I imagine one free-floating, edge-on with 2 sides on the left/right and perhaps the top surface visible. It's a shape, not an actual object.

Maybe I would imagine an abstract cube, the typical isometric cube they taught you to draw at school. But I've always liked wooden things.

Either as an abstract wireframe design, or a cube made of blue-tak, since I often seem to end up making little cubes out of that if I find myself fiddling with it.

I got a white cube with a black frame... Sometimes it changes to be a wireframe model, but I think it's been too long since I last used autocad for it to be permanent ;)

I like how different the responses are. It would be interesting to ask this to little children.
