Ruber's Vision in the Desert


Many of us have undertaken to explain what it was that Ruber saw when he was in the desert. Theories tend to fall into two categories: either he was merely hallucinating, or he actually had a vision of the room from some different time, dimension, etc.

It occurred to me very recently that we have all missed the obvious explanation. After Lee Bridgewater was shown the deck of cards, her dreams were interrupted with visions of the Motel. These visions turned out to be correct. It is reasonable to assume that anyone exposed to the cards would have a similar experience. Ruber also was shown the deck of cards. When Ruber was in the desert, he was in a state that is not dissimilar to sleep: he was delirious with hunger and thirst. He probably had a vision similar to Lee Bridgewater’s vision. While he had a vision involving the Polaroid, the vision itself was probably caused by the earlier exposure to the deck of cards. Since the deck of cards seem to cause valid visions, it is reasonable that Ruber’s vision was valid.

Another observation is that Ruber was the only person to look at the cards and then later look at the Polaroid. This sequence of events may have a synergistic effect similar to what happens when other objects are brought together. Therefore, it is possible that Ruber’s vision was unique.

posticon Re: Ruber's Vision in the Desert


could ruber's vision have been of an alternate reality where he was the occupant ??

could it have been of the future where he has become the occupant ??

methinks we need more episodes to figure this out...

Re: Ruber's Vision in the Desert


If I had to bet, I would say it was a vision of the future. A vision of the future is more straightforward and easy to explain. Mostly though, his use of the term prophet suggests a biblical parallel. Biblical prophecies are always of future events.

I'm not convinced we can trust Ruber's vision. He was definitly obsessed and could've been insane when he had it. Add to that the exposure and the entire experience could've been a hallucination.

I don't agree. Ruber knew who the lady was, knew she was coming, and knew what she had dreamed. Whatever his vision was, it wasn't just pure delusion.

95% delusion I could believe.

Re: Ruber's Vision in the Desert


My friend Iago told me an interesting theory. He says that when Ruber speaks with Bridgewatter tells him that he is protected by the objects and immediately makes appear the glasses to protect himself from the gun.
Ruber is now a "Room 10 supervillain" ?
If the answer is no, why the glasses are there?

He would've known Lee was coming after him after he "carded" her and helped Joe escape but you make a good point about him knowing about her dream. Maybe he dreamed about the Motel himself after having been exposed to the cards so he figured she would too.

I wondered about that myself. The best explanation I can think of is that woman from the Order (I always blank on her name) brought the glasses with her. Why I have no idea.
