[[folder:The Jim Henson Teleplay]]



Various different sources regarding Jim Henson have often cited that ''The Cube'' is supposed to be some kind of a representation of what happens to ourselves when we start to feel "trapped": apparently, what the Man is experiencing isn't really him being trapped inside a cube, but rather, he's become "trapped" in his own mind; what we're witnessing is a dream he's experiencing as he is overcome with feelings of entrapment.

The reason he can't leave is because he's been committed and the staff knows he won't be able to function in society. The statement that he has to find "his door" means not any physical doors in the walls or floor, but rather his a psychological one, as in he has to open himself to reality. What we see at the end is the beginning of his recovery. The doctors are starting to get through to him, but he still has not fully released himself from the world created by his mind, hence his apparent return.

The reason he can't leave is because he's been committed and the staff knows he won't be able to function in society. The claim that he has to find "his door" is merely a temporary incentive to keep him from trying to walk out before he's fully recovered. His "escape" was a brief period when the doctors made a breakthrough and started to get through to him, but he experienced a sudden relapse.

The man is simply suffering from extreme schizophrenia, causing him to completely lose his grip on reality. In actuality he is living in a psychiatric ward but due to his condition doesn't entirely understand where he is, leading to his predicament. His "visitors" are a mix of various things; some of them are just hallucinations, while others are either fellow patients who enjoy messing with him by going along with his delusions or psychiatrists and nurses that are trying to help him. The reason he can't leave is because he's been committed and the staff is understandably reluctant to release him since he'll be unable to function within society (the stuff about him finding "his door" is just something the staff says as a temporary incentive to keep him from easily escaping, at least until he gets better)

He, at some point in his past, removed his own memory of being God and set up the cube. Everything else is him subconsciously creating things. Nothing exists but him and the cube.
