Might be far-fetched, but this one reminded me of meiosis [1]. - XHalt (talk) 08:59, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

It's more the opposite.--Dgbrt (talk) 21:35, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

It reminds me of smoking DMT.

This reminds me of the "Cube" movie series. 21:31, 7 October 2013 (UTC)BK

Or Hellraiser (cue the Cenobites)Squirreltape (talk) 18:52, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
Hellraiser makes more sense. 22:04, 14 April 2014 (UTC)BK
Yes there is a scene in Hellraiser that reminds of this, but the idea that the room resets afterwards to be ready for the next "client" is reminiscent of Cube. --Kynde (talk) 21:37, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
What indicates that the room resets? In my imagination, the body parts keep hanging from the frame at the end. Also, the best Doctor Who episode ever also has a resetting trap: Wikipedia: Heaven Sent (Doctor Who) Signed: Fabian42, who is tired of being logged out almost every time he visits this Wiki.

Regarding the incomplete tag: Is there really anything to explain? Anonymous 21:13, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

There had to be one. It's probably just not known yet.Pacerier (talk) 18:06, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

It feels like the third paragraph (origins of creative use of the frame) should really be in the Trivia section, rather than the explanation. 17:02, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

My assumption, upon reading this strip, is that it's a representation of mental health: the universe pushing into you and pull you apart at your seams. It's very evocative; it really seems to me that it represents an abstract feeling. Maplestrip (talk) 09:00, 28 March 2022 (UTC)
