The Molecube (Posted on 2007-05-01) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Visiting Dr I.N.Atom I saw eight 2x2x2 transparent cubes on his work bench. Each cell held a small numbered sphere.

He called each of these a 'cubatom'. When properly put together they made a 'molecube'. This he said was a perfect cube.

He left me to puzzle over the scene. Before leaving however he did mention that all of the cubes were the right side up (for our purposes the bold numbers in the graphic are those on top.)

The cubes in the graphic are aligned as such:
   /\
  /  \
 |\  /|
 | \/ |
  \  /
   \/

So? What was I expected to deduce from this?
