Walter's notes explain the presence of the blueprints in previous Lab Notes - together they form a golden spiral, and at the center something is hidden - a hole in the universe?
Also in the notes:
- The first quote "all mankind is of one author..." is from English poet John Donne's Meditation XVII, where the famous quote "No man is an island" comes from
- The second quote is from The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, a "roman à clef" about mental illness
- The third quote is from The Bells by Edgar Allen Poe.
- S. S. Kresge refers to Sebastian Spering Kresge, a philanthropist best know for founding KMart. Kresge has many buildings named after him, including the Kresge building at Harvard, where Walter's Lab is located is in its basement.
- The final quote "No, 'tis not so deep as a well.." one of the final lines of Mercurtio from Act 3, Scene 1 of Romeo And Juliet.
