I Love each and everyone of you just a little more now because of this moment we have shared.



Yeah, let's knock this into 12th gear!

Maybe our reality is just really the filler for " Two Brothers ".

Honestly, I've loved Rick and Morty since I saw it the 1st time, it just hit on everything I love about human creativity and the way you can mesh some really deep thinking into some really insanely funny shows.

I have always viewed us as specks of dust in a desert of action, maybe that's why it relates to us so much, because we see things for what they are and therefor are able to recognize that and laugh at it at the sametime feeling a tiny bit depressed that we even are aware of such a vast concept.

Also gives hope for a lot more to come after this life.

In the beginning, the adversary's goal was to trick humankind into a shamed existence - and society has been wearing clothes ever since. The episode "M. Night Shaym Aliens" is the artist's view on these Archons. Our natural state is higher than these Archons - Which is why Rick ultimately out-smarts these aliens that have trapped him in their matrix. It is through knowledge that Rick is able to rise out of the matrix and destroy these alien parasites. They cannot bear the site of a naked human because they consume the energy from the unnatural artificial way of humans (exemplified by the invention of Rick's dark matter) - through these means humans give the archons power, but the simple nakedness of a human is unapproachable by these malevolent forces.

Rickpotion 9 was the episode that really shook me up. Morty witnessing his own alternate selfs body and having to bury it. Watching that his family was fighting the same way but they were not his real family and the music and the look of shock all juxtoposed against Rick who deals with it so casually like he is use to it. I feel we were supposed see our selves through Morty during this seen. How would any of us deal with having to bury a body that for all intent purpose was us and then blend into a world almost like what we left but having the knowledge it was not the same. I feel if I was put in such a Situation I would be in shock as well.

I actually drew a comic once of a Tarzan-like person peacefully emerging naked from his dwelling in the woods to communicate with the rest of humankind in the city only to be beaten and arrested to the applause of the general public for the incarceration of such a monster. Isn't it ironic that it is illegal to be our natural self in public? What does that say about our society?

Not only that, but that our own sexual attraction is used as a marketing and control ploy for a host of things.

I mean, a naked baby is normally seen as precious and cute.

A Naked fat man is seen as horrid, disgusting and perverted

A voluptuous naked women would been seen a beautiful, artistic and desirable to many even women.

3 depictions of the same thing, nudity all seen 3 different ways, but seems to be a negative bias towards naked men.

Very interesting leap into our mindsets for such to occur, certainly some underlying programing being seen.

Basically to get back to your point,

It says that our society is controlled by shame and greed, that you either fall into the shame part or the greed part.
