• "Light Barrier" is in reference to the "ultraviolet light barrier" in Lovecraft's story "From Beyond," in which Crawford Tillinghast constructs a machine which can illuminate the sixth sense in the human mind. (In "From Beyond," however, this sixth sense is the ability to perceive ultraviolet, and things which fall in the ultraviolet spectrum are from another dimension. This translates into "that which comes from another dimension" being "that which controls the flow of time and space on Earth," as is proven in the story by the fact that air itself does not occupy space, but is instead filled completely with constantly writhing deep-marine like creatures.) In Brian Yuzna's film adaptation of this story, Edward Pretorius (sounds like Sartorius) is able to will his own physical destiny, and also exhibits extraordinary telekinetic powers while the machine is operating.
