Discuss the Wisp Picture *spoilers?*
So after collecting all seven wisps, the picture it reveals raises some questions. I highly doubt the developers would have us go though all this work, to uncover a picture, so we can just go "Huh. That's neat." There has to be some story-related significance we've uncovered, here.
I'm thinking that the two faces, Escher and Newton, are nothing more than the kind of watermark, transparent faces you see in the background of memorable moments of movies. Just kind of showcasing the influences on his works, and illustrating that Escher and Newton at least had some kind of connection. In the other plot-discussion thread, I wondered if they actually worked together, or if Newton was just a major influence. Seeing as it is only Escher sitting at a desk working (With Newton overlooking from beyond), I'm leaning much more towards him just being an influence and an idol for Escher.
So then I got wondering about the pictures of them working together, in each chapter. Yet this "house" is inside his mind. The decor will reflect his thoughts and feelings, and if he idolized Newton as much as I feel, then these literal representations of their partnership make sense.
Now, what was it they were working on? In the distance, you have the massive, floating... Thing. I have no idea what that could be, but branching off from it... The Bridge. And seen in the lake behind him is the reflection. The mirror equivalent of the bridge.
Could MC Escher, with Newton's influence, have created 'The Bridge?' If so, what does this mean? What does Newton's death mean, and where does the tesseract fit in?
This picture means something; that much is certain. But what?
