Nothing is everything.
The character Bob also calls everyone Bob. A similar character appears in Gilliam's Twelve Monkeys (1995) as a voice that speaks to Bruce Willis' character.

The name "Qohen Leth" references "Qoheleth", the original Hebrew name (and presumed author) of Ecclesiastes--the Bible book that investigates the meaning of life.

To select locations for the film, director Terry Gilliam used Google Earth: "I'd got most of the locations sorted out by using Google Earth before I first went to Romania. This is how we do location scouting these days."
