Visualize a cube map in 3-D space

A geometric map is a way to show a three dimensional object with only two dimensions. Take the set of squares you see below, for instance. Think about what you could do with the shape if you cut it out of the paper. By folding along the lines that divide the six squares, you could create a paper cube. Each side of the cube would be the same size as each of the squares...

Visualize how lines traverse a 3D cube when shown as a cube map.
