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?

  • 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."

  • MAT PAT I HAVE 2 THEORY!!!! Theory 1 rick has stated and it has been demonstrated that ricks and morties have complementary brain waves. Thing is, c137 morty is changing to be more assertive. So is it possible that c137 rick is more depressed due to this fact that the waves are complimentary? Theory 2 morty is changing a ton mentally in the span of the show, he is becomeing more assertive. I think rick allowed that.Before, when ever morty got assertive rick would put a stop to it like when he tazzed morty in the Purge ep. It is important then he stay the same so he could use mortys brain waves to hide. Now with the fall of the galactic gov and cinidl, rick dose not need that anymore. Now what rick dose not know is that the cinidel is being rebuilt, by evil morty. To add on There is no possible way he could have predicted that. We have seen evil morty outsmart rick in the past. This is a big problem bc evil morty is directly related to c137 rick in some way. i think evil morty will find rick without morties complimentary brain waves. reddit user is llamaman669 if anyone wants to talk more

  • Saying we can't make new ideas, just remix old ones is one of the most retarded things I've ever heard. If you want to be able to comprehend anything as a human being you need to be able to relate it to something you have been taught or experienced. You literally cannot have an new idea if you have no comprehension of the world. That's one of me most retardedly phrased things I've ever heard to make a point.

  • Rick's wife couldn't of died and she definitely raised Beth after he left her but We never see her in any universe he visits. There's no way she died in every reality. In the episode where bird person gets married, Rick says he couldn't make his marriage work. Insinuating that they broke up. Surely if he broke up with one, he could move to an identical universe but one where Rick doesn't exist and meet her again. It's more likely that his wife is just as clever as him and is hiding from him in every reality. Like the citadel of Rick but for her. Beth is very head strong and dominant over Jerry, it is likely that her mother was as well making her and Rick clash being both dominant. It's likely he wishes he'd given in more to her to make himself happy. Anyways, just a thought.

  • This episode hits really close to home for me. As someone who struggles with a few different mental illnesses, including MDD (Major Depressive Disorder) PTSD, and anxiety, as well as having an above average IQ, I relate a lot to Rick as a character. Thank you Matpat, I really think you handle these episodes that handle deeper topics really well and I appreciate that.
