Definitions
from The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition.
 noun Any of a set of objects resulting from the generalization of a twodimensional square and a threedimensional cube to n dimensions. A hypercube has 2^{n} corners, each of which is connected to its n nearest adjacent corners by edges that all have the same length.
 noun A network whose nodes have the connectivity of such an object.

 noun A mathematical object existing in more than three dimensions, analogous to the cube in that each twodimensional facet of the surface is a square; a generalization of a cube in more than three dimensions.

Abstract: A representation of the genetic code as a six – dimensional Boolean hypercube is proposed.

Hyperspace means a space with more than three dimensions, and a hypercube is a cube in more than three dimensions.

The hypercube is a very particular case of the hyperprism.

For example, if we want to visualize the 4dimensional equivalent of a cube (called a "hypercube", with 16 nodes and 32 edges), we can get a feel for it by "stereographically projecting" it into 3dimensions:

Gwiazda has created a kind of 4th dimensional hypercube format for some of these images, which allows him to imagine that he can simultaneously see in front, to both sides, and behind him.

whichbe commented on the word hypercube
Based on the Tesseract model. The concept of a tesseract, or four dimensional cube, is often used as an illustration of time travel, and might also give a clue to how a warp in time might occur. As the tesseract constantly moves, collapses in on itself and then expands again in a never ending loop, so does time move forward in a never ending line. If, however, an object or person was able to move from one line of this tesseract to another at any junction point, they would in essence be moving not with time, but in a straight line perpendicular to it. This movement has led many science fiction authors to juxtapose the thought not of time travel, but of being able to stop time and then start it again.

asativum commented on the word hypercube
In mathematics, I believe a hypercube is a fourdimensional surface; in one sense it is to an ordinary cube what a cube is to a twodimensionsal square. Like other 4D objects, when rotated in 3space, it appears to change shape, but I'm pretty sure that's the only way time is involved. You can perhaps imagine your way to the timealtering speculation from here.
