    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?

    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.

    Hey Mat, 4 out of the 6 links to the sources aren't being found. May I know what are some keywords to find the sources, especially for those covering the topic of the originality of the imagination.

    Please do a theory for Blendin Blandin(Gravity Falls time travel guy) being a Morty. They're both voiced by Justin Roiland and have similar stupid whimsical personalities.

    I honestly find it hard to feel bad for this guy. As any given episode with the council of Ricks demonstrates, the man is a near-literal tumor on the entire multiverse.

    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.

    JRR Tolkien used to call human beings "sub-creators". If you think about it, sub-creation can only take from creation, it can never create outright.Or put another way, "original ideas don't even exist."
