well it is possible that to maximally distant states are half twist apart
also if you count half twists as one twist (i dont, but its
still worth thinking about) does that change the set of
maximally distant states?
also it is possible that there exists states for which all directions
lead closer to home (and twist put the cube in a state closer to home)
but the state is not necessarily maximally distant (to use
a continous analogy, think of think of a hill in a funtion of
two variables, that is not necessarily the maximum value of the
function)
