Time Cube
Ray is just a stark raving mad lunatic who suffers from Paranoid Schizophrenia
Hard to believe, I know, but hear me out on this! It's a possibility!

Ray is absolutely correct about everything on all of his sites.

I mean, if there's someone out there who actually can understand it.

Ray is an Eldritch Abomination in a human body
Time Cube is just how physics work in his plane of existence.

Ray encountered an avatar of an Eldritch Abomination.
He went off the deep end at that point
  • He is the modern Abdul al-Hazred. Gaze not too closely at his writings, lest you find that which he found within and call that which he met.

Ray is confused by how timezones work.
Admittedly, it blew my mind a little bit too the first time I realized there's dawns, middays, dusks and nights going on simultaneously at different longitudes. One can see how a schizophrenic person with a predilection for obsessive and paranoid behavior, no higher education and lots of free time might discover and run with that idea to the four corners of the Earth.

  • The day is a square concept with cubed components. Each day has four periods, which are each divided into 6 hours each.

Time Cube was actually written by Mark Z. Danielewski

Ray is a Genius.
