Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

The philosophical dialog about consciousness and dogs between Edmond and his cellmate that takes place at the end in their prison cell is based on a science fiction theory about the origins of dogs and the canine star Sirius. The theory postulates that dogs came to earth from Sirius and that they were bipedal and were able to speak, but upon arriving here, humans enslaved them, forced them to walk on all fours and made them forget the power of speech.
