Imagine a cube, 3x3x3 in size. Each of the 27 segments inside the cube contains a different character including the 26 letters and one space.

The characters are arranged in such a way that A will be next to B, which is next to C etc. They are connected side by side or top and bottom, not diagonally. The space is next to the Z; other punctuation should be ignored.

y2b, x3a, y2a, z3c, y1b, x2b, y1b, z2a, x1a, x2c, x3a, y2c, y1b, y1a, x3b, x3a, z1a, y1b, y3b, z3b, y2b, z1c, y1b, x3b, x2b, z1a, y1b, y3b, z3b, z3c, y1b, z1a, y3b, y2b, x1a, y1a, x3a, y3b, z3b, y1b, x2c, x1a, y1a, y1b, y1a, x3b, z3c, z2a, z3c, y1b, z2b, x2b, z1c, y1b, x2c, z3c, y1b, z2b, y3b, z2a, z3c, y1b, y1a, x3b, x2b, z3b, y1b, y3b, z3b, z3c, y1b, x1c, x2b, z1c, y1b, y1a, y3b, y1b, y3c, x3a, z3b, z2c, y1b, x3a, y1a.
