Maybe Visitor 1 - who probably comes from the rabbit warren (
) - just wanted to hint her to that brick house.
Yes, she could easily be seen as from the rabbit warren, but I think "the brick house tucked back in the small woods" makes her sound like a strange being from a fairy tale invading Nikki's safe world. That's all I see so far, other than it being a reference to "the book house boys". The rabbit men definitely seem to be the same kind of people as the book house boys in Twin Peaks. Always on guard against evil spirits.
Perhaps "crossing the line" means going to that brick house, which maybe is the house of Smithy. During the conversation Nikki seems to be not very interested in that brick house. But maybe something happened which led her to cross the line. Interestingly she informs Mr. K about it in a kind of talk Nikki doesn`t like.
What is "crossing the line"? Is that something in German subtitles? I didn't hear it. Says what to Mr. K.? She's not in her own house?
If Janek did not agree it doesn't matter because the plan is to take the gun to the American story so that Nikki as Sue can get rid of Lost Girl's phantom.
It probably doesn`t matter to that concern. With regard to Janek we get a feature of his personality. And we have not much such opportunities.
Unless, as I wrote somewhere else, it really did not work out well and only led to the phantom being happy to have trapped Nikki. That is still an open question. It has been said that at the reunion of the Gruszka and Lucas family, the boy has the same smile as the boy in "The Omen".
Think that there`s really a curse. One that comes with the phantom. But maybe all comes from the mind of the monolog woman.
"The longest running radio show" has a curse because it always leads to the same tragedy. I think that means a folk tale that is told in many variations but always has the same bad elements ... but which can be changed now that human beings have evolved a little more.
I didn't ask her but I assume she did see that.
Does this suggest that when someone deals with TM that something happens for the worse?
Not at all! I don't know what they do in TM (other than what everyone knows about the mantra), but the idea of responsibility is a central feature of many routes to healing and becoming whole. It seemed to me that when the phantom said, "Nothing can happen unless you will it.", it seemed familiar to my friend ... and I happen to know that she is a TM practitioner. So I thought that was what seemed familiar to her. That is, the phantom says some seductively true things. Many gurus do. But not all are honest.
I read that the Maharishi apparently was good in mathematics, physics and philosophy. And sometimes also in business.
He had a PhD in physics. That's what appealed to John Haglin I think. They were up on current trends in science. There is a site for people trying to recover from TM and it said there that the Maharishi had over $2,000,000,000 in assets.
Probably the only ones who see the phantom are we as viewers. Doris has a kind of flashback (or "flashbefore") when she sees herself with the screwdriver in herself. In that scene she answers the question about the one who hypnotized her as far as she can. Nikki is searching for more. We maybe see what is to be found: The phantom who hypnotizes people (who will become those white people?).
There would be no "ordinary" reason for Sue to see a scene from a movie in which her life is being performed by someone else, Nikki, or for Doris to see Julia Ormand playing the part of perhaps someone else. So then, there may be a nonordinary reason: that these characters are aware of being in a story. Nevertheless that is the first time we the viewers see the phantom hypnotizing. There must be more to this scene that will be discovered later.

Never thought about the gender before.
Dan definitely says it is a man.
She lays there as the dead woman when she wakes up and later she lays there dead as the dead woman.
I think the dead woman is someone else but I am not going to say who just yet.
a story told by multiple dreamers dreaming the same things.
First, people dream the same dreams all the time. Second, maybe all of us are dreaming the same dream in a way. Each of us describes what we know differently.
Notice that when Betty comes to Ruth's house there is bowl of red peppers on the table that we didn't see when Rita was hiding under it.
Maybe Rita put it away in between?
There wouldn't be much point of putting that in the movie. Maybe Coco moved it. Maybe Wilkins' dog moved it. So what? The same point is made by the fact that we see Ruth come back to check the kitchen then walk to the table for her keys. Then we see what Betty sees standing in the same place Ruth stood, and she can clearly see under the table. But Ruth didn't see Rita hiding.
The clue that comes with my copy says: "1) Pay particular attention to the beginning of the film: at least two
clues are revealed before the credits."
So perhaps again a translation problem.
Also, some DeLuxe edition came out later and the clues in it had been revised. I don't have it but I've read about it. E.g. the new clue says Who gives a blue key and why?, instead of just Who gives a key.
...... back to IE .........
I feel that it is meant that Jack Rabbit is Mr. K. Anyway, probably everyone is Mr. K with regard to a holistic view. And the hint in MTTH suggests that Mr. K/Jack rabbit are someone who isn`t mentioned in the credits.
I didn't see any credits at all in MTTH. Jack Rabbit is Scott Coffey and Mr. K. is Erik Crary.
