It’s kinda hard to comprehend and explain, but it’s there. There’s a faq you might wanna check.

I read it. My brain still hurts.

No. They look cool. 4 dimensions just means that the position of one of the blocks is described by 4 numbers instead of 3. you couldn’t make one of these cubes in the same way as a 3d cube, but if you used several cubes then you could use the particular cube you are talking about as the 4th dimension.
