We can read on Wikipedia:

Brilliant but irresponsible scientist Tony Nelson (James Congdon) develops an amplifier that allows any object to achieve a 4th dimensional (4D) state. While in this state that object can pass freely through any other object.Reading these words I immediatly think to

**Howard Philips Lovecraft**and his

*Cthulhu Mythos*, in particular to

*Dream in the Witch House*. In this short story

**Walter Gilman**, a student of mathematics, lives in the house of

**Keziah Mason**, one of the Salem's witches. In the story there are some mathematically interesting quotes:

She had told Judge Hathorne of lines and curves that could be made to point out directions leading through the walls of space to other spaces beyond (...)We can argue the Lovecraft's use for his purpouse of the non-euclidean geometry, in particular in the following quotation:

[Gilman] wanted to be in the building where some circumstance had more or less suddenly given a mediocre old woman of the Seventeenth Century an insight into mathematical depths perhaps beyond the utmost modern delvings of Planck, Heisenberg, Einstein, and de Sitter.or in the following point, in which HPL seems refer to Riemann's hypotesys:

He was getting an intuitive knack for solving Riemannian equations, and astonished Professor Upham by his comprehension of fourth-dimensional and other problems (...)Indeed Gilman was studying

non-Euclidean calculus and quantum physicsAnd Walter, dreaming, has experienced the high dimensional space of the

*limitless abysses*:

abysses whose material and gravitational properties, and whose relation to his own entity, he could not even begin to explain. He did not walk or climb, fly or swim, crawl or wriggle; yet always experienced a mode of motion partly voluntary and partly involuntary. Of his own condition he could not well judge, for sight of his arms, legs, and torso seemed always cut off by some odd disarrangement of perspective; (...)Durign his travel in the fourth-dimension, Gilman seen

risms, labyrinths, clusters of cubes and planes, and Cyclopean buildingsthat are characteristic in lovecraftian literature.

Another non-euclidean reference is in

*The Call of Cthulhu*

^{(1)}:

He said that the geometry of the dream-place he saw was abnormal, non-Euclidean, and loathsomely redolent of spheres and dimensions apart from ours.And Cthulhu itself is a fourth dimensional creature. Cthulhu was one of the Great Old Ones: these creatures

(...) were not composed altogether of flesh and blood. They had shape (...) but that shape was not made of matter.We can imagine Cthulhu in our world like the projection of a dodecaplex in a three dimensional space, for example:
