    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?

    “There are no original ideas”... said while reviewing an episode of r&m which (in our real world) contains nothing but creative, new, original ideas. Did you not see the incredible irony in your analysis of rick’s original idea?

    Idk if ur going to see this because of how old this video is, but I’ve found something of possible interest in the pocket Mortys game. There is a picture of a Morty in the ricks bathroom in the Morty games arena when u click A next to the picture a ghost rick appears and says, “I’ll never give up on you Morty, I know your out there.....” this was a little interesting to me. Possibly some small thing hinting towards evil Morty? It could be possible that evil mortys rick died at the hands of another rick and Morty ran away out of grief, living on his own he became hardened and grew major resentment towards all ricks... again idk if you’ll see this but it could be an interesting thing to look into.

    Isn’t Rick supposed to be the smartest being in the universe? Therefore wouldn’t he be capable of concocting an original idea? Or is it because the show is not written by the smartest beings in the universe that he’s written to be incapable of original thought? I think the show was created to be fun and funny and all the philosophizing sucks the soul out of it which is why Rick and Morty fans are some of the most pretentious and obnoxious people on the planet.

    BTW recently been watching your videos and am a new fan...I have a background in psychology and have BPD borderline personality disorder. Depression is a common misdiagnosis of this disorder. BPD deals with abandonment issues, having problems identifying self to others around them. A person with BPD rather do everything alone and suffer than to ask others for help. They hate being judged and can be classified as having narcissistic tendencies, but it is just to shield them from having true feelings. They have problems connecting to people and had a traumatic past. They commonly take part in substance abuse and impulsive behavior. Lastly, they statistically have a high risk of suicide.


    Fans: Man, this is a realistic episode.
    Me: Hold up *what?*

    This is mostly why psychology is seen as a pseudo science. In the same way that the human mind acts in predicable behavior patterns, and those patterns given a stock name and labeled for all to see and know, you use it to second guess those that are beyond you. In the same way regular psychology is not applied to people with genetic mental disorders, because they can't accurately predict their behavior. Only in this manner, those born with a genetic aberration allowing for more comprehensive thought process and enhanced mental capacity are very similar, and yet those with lower understanding use regular psychology to attempt to second guess their actions and motives which lead to those actions. As simply put by Rick as a pickle, the reason someone would turn themselves into a pickle, is because they can. Ultimately revealed to be a convoluted method of avoiding family therapy brings it back into scope for the normal human mind. Oh yeah, he just did that because *insert something I can relate to here*. Why does a bird fly, because it doesn't like to awkwardly hop-walk to where it's going? Psychology itself is a bid for control over others. A rather mundane approach at it, but it is none-the-less. By explaining away motives with established mental disorders that have authoritative backing, they can pretty much see themselves as being on par with a real avenue of intellect. When in reality, any good businessman or influential person practices psychological control in an effortless manner. And I would say those two categories of people are the first targets to be scrutinized by any psychological study. Why do this person's actions result in success, when the person analyzing the question is not remotely as successful? Short and sweet, you're blindfolded and throwing darts at a wall without a target.
