The whole film is a right-brained exercise in non-linear connectivity and improbability. It's not surprising that the general public (and most critics) couldn't get into it. It's just too complex to easily follow and digest.
    i had this thought, that maybe time is a twisted spiral, wherein each dimension revolves around a central axis, through which information can be exchanges between dimensions. Basically, a helix.

    I think I could only do it because I wasn't trying to logically parse it, it's really a bunch of connections and reflections all catching each other, like facets of a gem reflecting light, some larger, some smaller. Even the music itself is designed that way. The movie is about repeated patternings and snippets of the same "song" woven throughout. It's a shame it wasn't promoted better and released overseas in more venues. It was pretty much understood it wasn't going to bring it what it cost to make, but I'm glad someone tried.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
