That's it? Not even a show of solving effort on your part? –  J. M. Nov 24 '11 at 16:56
I don't mind the missing effort, but I want the definition of magic and order. –  Phira Nov 24 '11 at 17:09
@Phira, I imagine we want to arrange the numbers from 1 to 64 in a 4 x 4 x 4 array in such a way that all the 4-in-a-line sums are equal. But it would be nice of OP to confirm. –  Gerry Myerson Nov 24 '11 at 23:39

If you take the effort to type "magic cube" into your favorite search engine you will be led to any number of useful discussions. Why don't you do that, and then report back to us on what you have found?

Interestingly enough, I am not led to useful discussions by my favourite search engine. These days, one has to start to be careful with this kind of advice, because search engines start to "customize" search results. –  Phira Nov 26 '11 at 16:34
