Well the Cube has been found. It was burried in the Wakerley Great Wood near Stamford, Northamptonshire UK. Andy Darley from Middlesex found the cube and has won the the 100,000 pound prize.

Quantum Parallelograph

The Quantum Parallelograph is an exploratory project examining the scientific and philosophical ideas surrounding the theory of quantum physics and multiple universes. The project is rooted in the pioneering work of Professor David Deutsch of Oxford University, and the earlier work of Professor Hugh Everett, who argue for infinite copies of ourselves existing within multiple universes. The Quantum Parallelograph seeks to reveal to the personal user how such ideas of alternative realities might be envisaged.
