Laying The Fundation: An advice if you run out of luck or patience
If you spent 10+ min trying to get inside the "room" in the center of this map, you may find the fact that running around will never get you inside.

Here's what I found:
-The way to the unexplored chamber is located inside the "room", you need to get inside and jump down(you can see the colorful tunnel when the wall is broken)
-The Wall Block will be regenerated after a certain amount of time when broken.(Let's say 5 sec)
-You need a 6x3 sized hole to get though(It is, but not soooo important)
-The speed you move slightly alter the chance of opening a right-sized-whole(Keep the blast radius just bigger than the "room" will be better)
-The resolution or framerate is not the reason you can't get through(or for most of us)
- "one side of the walls respawns slower", and it'is the one facing the "X" door with a longer pasage(good for us to stir the balls)

Here's the hint:
-Do this in 5 sec, move at a proper speed, and at a proper side.
-If this time you failed, wait for the whole wall to regenerate and try again.
-Do not running round and round! It's useless.

You're forgetting that one side respawns slower. You also only need a 5x3, not a 6x3.

@Californ1a :
Thanks for the reply! And after a few test I think:
--It's true that "one side respawns slower", and the side is one facing the "X" door with a longer pasage for us to stir the balls.
--And I still think the size should be 6x3, for it's the smallest size I tested by creating holes on block walls and try to walk through.

I'm an admin on the Antichamber wiki, and we tested all of this game mechanic info long, long ago. The character is 5 tall by 3 wide; the best room to test this is Too Many Lasers.

Checked the wiki, great job!
But I still can't fit in the 5x3 hole(Tested in the 6x6 corridor of the level "A book and it's cover": can't walk pass it when it's 5 block tall; and can't walk if spreading a 1-block layer under yourself)
Maybe we are both right.

It's not exactly 5 or 6 tall, it's between the two, although I don't know exactly; I typically just say that the character is 5x3 because the only puzzle where fitting through a hole is relevant to the solution is Too Many Lasers, and a 5x3 hole works there.

This is the one room on my map that shows an unexplored passage. I guess this is the one left to 'solve'. However, I don't have that passage on the right (as seen on the video), did I miss something else?
