The laws of The Door


I have been watching the show many times and i have noticed that they try to answer many of the questions of how the door works.

So far they have shown it dose not work on car doors. makes sense and is understandable seeing how they are completely different door types.

The have shown that the size of the door dose not matter. In the intro they show this right off the bat. but what i wonder about the size is how dose that look from the other side? would there be something there or nothing?

The door needs to have a key hole for the door to work or to activate the key. Another one that dose not have any problems with it.

They showed in the beginning that if there is someone in the place past the physical door nothing happens to them. This also makes sense and has no problems with it.

Now onto a complicated things. What happens when you open a door with see through glass on it. I know the door would open and you could walk into the room but through that glass what would you see? Now i think everything will stay how it looks normally aside from when you open the door. after you open the door your view through the glass will be stewed. But you will still see what is through the glass. I will work on an illustration for this idea later so there is no confusion on what i am trying to get across. but its an interesting though on how that would look. and because The lost room did not have a lot of special effects they did no show this.

Now onto the real question out of all of these "rules for the door. If you open the door from "the room" into another room and keep the door open. What would happen if someone where to try to enter the room that you are holding the door open to. I think in the show they where trying to answer this. When Joe was searching up the finger print he had the door open and was in the lab. then a officer opened the door. but there was no one in the room. i think they did not get to explain it but it think they where going to explain that idea there.

Now also the other question. what if you open the door oppositely from the way the door on either side is suppose to open or can you not open the door in that case. this is an interesting thought and will also show this in my illustration.


So here is the summery of the rules/guidelines that the door follows;

1. The size of the door dose not matter.

2. not any type of door works, ex. car doors

3. Doors with glass work as viable doors

4. For a door to be viable it needs to have a knob and key hole to turn.

5. Padlocks do not allow the door to act as a viable door.

6. No one is effected in the other side of the door when opened.



I will add laws to this as we come up with more and let me know if there is something that dose not make sense an i will clarify. and i will illustrate these things as well once i finish drawing them.

Re: The laws of The Door


Could you enter a place with multiple doors (from the room), leave the door open, and open another door with the key? Would that open up two instances of the room?

Re: The laws of The Door


I thought this was interesting so I went to the source. (Chris Leone, co-creator of TLR)

Chris,
What happens if you exit the room leaving the door open and then open another door with the key? Would you open another instance of the room?


and his response...

The answer is, you can only open one instance of the Motel Room at at time. So if you used the Key on a second door, it simply wouldn't work while the first door was still open to the Motel Room.

This is an important rule, or else theoretically there could be millions of Motel Rooms out there, being used as de facto teleportation machines by people who don't have the Key, but who are extremely careful about keeping the door wedged open to their Room every time they exited. Which is itself kind of a cool idea, but it conflicted with our core idea of the importance of the Key, and how it was the ONLY way to access the Room. If there's just one Room, accessed by one Key, they both become much, much more important. Worth killing for...

--Chris

As for 4. For a door to be viable it needs to have a knob and key hole to turn. I'd say that any pin tumbler lock would do. So even a door with a simple door handle and a cylinder lock would let you use the Key, it wouldn't need to be a doorknob per se.

My guess is that Ruber got thrown out of the shack door in the middle of nowhere on purpose, because Joe wanted to get rid of Ruber.

And the beach door hut might have been random (the room picks a door for you if you don't have a door in mind) but might also have been the result of Joe dreaming about nice sandy beaches in a warm climate.

And maybe the randomness of the door is seeded by the thoughts of the motel guy.
