    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?

                  You seems to forget that when Tony mentioned his "dead wife", Rick found another dimension Tony to tell the truth and gets angry for using his wife as an excuse

                                  “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?

                                    Have y'all not realized that in the memory with the explosion that Rick's daughter also dies so there's no way it could be true

                                      But it;s not sacrifice, it;s guilt, and fear cause "Morty gets cocky, he gets to be dangerous"

                                        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.
