If you unfold a tesseract into 3D space you get a cross shape (basically). Animated, it looks like the bottom most cube becomes inverted from it's 4D orientation. Would that mean that the pull of gravity within that cell would be opposite of the other cells when in 4D?

The "unfolding" is a visualization and doesn't have any physical significance. –  dmckee Aug 7 '12 at 19:02
