Added DiffLines:

* ColorMotif: While most of the film is dominated by the blue color of the substance, the third act starts to emphasize yellow, which seems to be associated with Kris.

The film follows Kris, a graphic designer that is drugged by a small-time thief and has her life flipped upside-down because of it. She later has a chance meeting with a man named Jeff, who has a similar story. Unbeknownst to the two of them, they are caught in the metaphysical life-cycle of an ageless organism, traveling through "the microscopic world, moving to nematodes, plant life, livestock, and back again", and begin mirroring its actions.

* RiddleForTheAges: The origin of the blue substance is never revealed. We also never learn the exact relationship between the Thief and the Sampler. Were they in a knowing partnership or an unwitting symbiotic relationship is left unknown.
