This one is for the fans of Rick and Morty a show that I absolutely love. I enjoy that Rick and Morty digs so deep into question like what is meaning in an infinite universe where all possibility's are possible? Are humans just a speck on a much bigger an seemingly indifferent universal playing field? We get to live through Rick and Morty and see how they both deal with the situations they are pitted against and how differntly they react and deal with them.
Wise Cracks does an Excellent video on the Philosophy of Rick and Morty that Illustrates why the show is such a Jem.
Spoiler alert if you have not seen Rick an Morty go watch the series and for everyone else the video.

What are we delving into here? The love of horror?

Is that the unspoken philosophy buried within horror?

The series plays with themes of Cosmic horror and Also deals with elements of Existentialist philosophy with the Protagonist adventures in the back drop of A sci-fi universe.

Whenever I view horror on the screen, I see the artistry in the horror, but not the intent. How do we reconcile ourselves with the intent?

I never knew what horror was. I still don't. The things that frighten people these days,,, idk, I guess I'm not one who's bothered by much.

It's all a matter of perspective.
With every year that passes, it takes more horror to actually horrify society.

Things that used to horrify people 100 years ago are common sights today and are barely noticed.

I agree, when I was exposed to horror (whatever that is) I turn and try to investigate it. Like the time, during high school, I went on a rural camping and navigating program. At night (pitch black) I thought I could roam around alone, so when I saw a bonfire I headed for, when I heard the rattling sound of a rattle snake. What did I do? I stopped dead in my tracks and slowly turned to face the horror. What did I find, but my male counterpart, idiot equal pretending to be a rattler. Then as was expected of him, he laughed uncontrollably and darted off to tell his story.

Absolutely one of the best shows ever created. Pure genius and completely ridiculous at the same time. Which once again is part of what makes it so great. It combines deep thought and intelligence with low brow toilet humor with the skill of a true artist turned mad scientist.

Now I want to get Schwifty and make a Plumbus.
