Season 4 of Rick and Morty is giving us a brand new, deeper look into the mind of our favorite genius, Rick Sanchez. Throughout the run of the show, people have speculated about what's going on with the smartest man in the universe. Today, I have gathered all the data I need to really dissect his brain. I think we may all have judged Rick a little too fast... or did we?

  • Why should we assume that the Beth we know is the daughter of the Rick we know? He could very well be a Rick with no one left in his own life so he’s taken the place of a different Rick, he’s done it before

  • Rick is just traveling within himself and experience life as one of his light bodies (creation) but he got lost within his creations (ideas) he is consciously aware all is just an experience but he got attached to an experience creating a memory and emotion to something in the physical. he is Consciously aware of this with his high sense of logic but he personally chooses to experience his lower senses form body which is the only rick we are consciously aware of human Rick. But subconsciously aware of other ricks only because he is too. no matter the realm rick needs his morty (feelings). Rick is the thought and Morty is the feeling of that thought that gives overall energy. Creating an idea to go in a new realm (universe, planet, etc.) so everyone is just a projection of Rick and his thoughts and feelings but and the mediation is like when you're mind is still with no idea or feeling of anything no one trying to give off their emotions and feelings

  • I like most of your theories, but you kinda glossed over the part about about memories being associated with ideas, which was the basis of the entire theory.

  • This is what i talk to myself about when depression hits me hard...”*it ironic?.... you are afraid to be alone for the rest of your life and you are constantly seeking attention from people so that you dont have to be alone anymore....but when they make you happy you think to yourself that you dont deserve every little thing they do for you and it ended up with you, hurting them and pushing them away from you coz you feel like if they stayed with you they will only feel miserable*” I KNOW ITS CONFUSING AND SORRY COZ MY BRAIN CANT TRANSLATE EVERYTHING I THINK OF TO EXACTLY WHAT I WANT IT TO BE TRANSLATED TO.... SORRY BAD GRAMMAR

  • In the episode we’re they we’re in blitz and chips when morty finishes playing roy and rick played it after if you look at rick during the scene when his playing it he has a smile in his face because when he played roy he felt in control of his life and i think why rick loves to go to blitz and chips because he can feel in control there through the games.this is just my theory on rick

  • i can attest to the creative thoughts part. As an artist, once you realize that fact it makes it easier. I always say, "you aren't going to create a new note, color, or word. You can only work with what we have. But only you can feel your feeling so strong that it pours out of you in those notes colors or words." No one really just one day picks up a talent. They are inspired to do something they saw, heard or felt and want to recreate it somehow. usually by picking up the same instrument that inspired them. then the act of practice is needed to be skillful in that endeavor. during this time you learn the combinations that work and the techniques you favor and don't. With that knowledge, you are then able to explore your creativity, or what the video is saying the remixing of those techniques and combinations. He's right, nothing is new.

  • Please understand that conversation rick and his daughter is a complement to morty as he found nothing mattered in the universe making the universe morty's oyster as much as rick's.
