The Polaroid Theory


A recent post got my thinking about the Polaroid. Notice how it's black as if it was undeveloped and yet it's also an object. If it had been a normal polaroid picture that was transformed into an object it should just look like a regular picture. If it is undeveloped that implies that it was taken at the moment of the event.

Could taking the picture have caused the event?

Re: The Polaroid Theory


which brings us back to Spike's Psychotron (sp?) theory which was that the taking of the polaroid "overloaded" the room with irrational particles thus causing the event.

Re: The Polaroid Theory


So I asked Chris:

"The Polaroid looks black until you use it to see into the room, almost like it's undeveloped. Is it possible that it became and object as it was developing? Sort of like someone took a pic, the camera spit it out but before the image showed it became an object and stayed black?"

and his response was:

"Regarding the Polaroid, I think we thought of it as undeveloped or else possibly a bad exposure taken inside the Room (that developed black), but actually I think I like your explanation better."

How cool is that!

Re: The Polaroid Theory


That makes sense. Why else would Eddie have a blank Polaroid?

The problem now is who took the picture. Eddie was standing still with his arms to his side. This indicates definite parameters to the nature of the event.

The picture didn't necessarily have to be of Eddie. We don't know that the moment frozen in time by the Polaroid was the same moment as the event.

Or, could the camera have been set on a timer?

Re: The Polaroid Theory


This brings up the larger question of what exactly Eddie was doing? He was apparently examining something (I'm presuming some issue of Life Magazine, although that Object has its own drama obviously), he was traveling via bus and train, he was in full business dress--no changes of clothes, but that's another issue--but no Objects are associated with his profession. So what was the Gallup Polaroid (which was bent, abraded, had been carried about or otherwise had wear and tear) supposed to be? The rest of his belongings are maintained meticulously, so this stands out.

Was what he was doing in the Motel innocent? What was he investigating or pursuing? Do we take his brief comments at face value?

Also the Polaroid was very well hidden, and not even known as an Object. Given its ability, what exactly would have been revealed if a truly complete inventory of the Objects became widely available?

Re: The Polaroid Theory


And why did Harold Stritzke’s aunt tell him to hide the photographs until it was “time”?

She must have known something was coming, and had a pretty good idea what it was. That whole predestination thing suggests that The Collectors had a comprehensive theory. Did they see something in the room looking through the Polaroid? Did they learn something by using the combined powers of several objects?

Re: The Polaroid Theory


Well the Theory i posted in about the way the objects where at the moment of the event goes through the screen shots we have of the room and talks about what can be observed.

What i have seen shows that the occupant was reading the magazine when he was interrupted. he set down the magazine and investigated and as he was investigating the event occurred. but i could be wrong i am trying to finish up that theory but life has gotten me down right now. but once i am up again i will finish it.

Re: The Polaroid Theory


I wonder if one of the effects/combination effects of objects is seeing the future or time travel? IOW with the right object, could one make the picture in the Polaroid move? (a reenactment?)

Why not! We worked out the number of combinations of 100 objects to approximately 1270000000000000000000000000000. The possibilities are virtually unlimited.
