Consider the unit cube x, y, z = [0,1].
Does it contain more points than its edge x = [0,1], y=z=0?

Edit. Let's state it simply:
Does a cube contain more points than are contained in one of its edges?

mmiguel, would you say there are different cardinal numbers for one edge, 12 edges, faces, solids?

BTW just to clarify, I mean by cube to denote a solid, as per EH's reasoning.

Any other views?
