The Danish Author Piet Hein conceived the idea of the SOMA cube in 1936, during a lecture of Quantum physics by Werner Heisenberg (Father of the un-certain principle).
As the lecture continued, Piet Hein convinced himself quickly, using some hasty sketches on a piece of paper, that seven shapes, which in total contained 27 cubes, would let itself be combined to a larger cube of the dimensions 3 x 3 x 3.
Piet Hein had two sons, Jotun and Piet (junior), who are mentioned in the Soma Cube manual as well as The Soma Addict as having contributed to many figures and proofs therein.
