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?

Something to tell to the comment section: not every person who can feel lonely/sad/complicated (which is literally everyone) is depressed. Depression is a very specific problem, please talk about it with a professional instead of saying catching phrases about this. You're making your friends worried.

I still believe his family actually died, and he jumped to another dimension where he himself had died (so he could take his place) but Beth is alive. That’s why he “disappeared” for so many years; it’s when the Rick of the reality we follow was dead, before our Rick came from another dimension. Our Rick is mourning the family he lost, while living with a replica of them.

Thank you so much Mat Pat, this video really helped me realize why my big brother became so "cold" to me after he got diagnosed with depression, and now that I understand why, I hope that my brother and I can rebuild our bond... And it's all thanks to you!

Wait what if he showed the aliens Simple Rick’s origin story? Then he’d know EXACTLY what happened. Then it would totally be fabricated from someone else’s story, and he totally could’ve left that Beth when she was a child.

What if Beth is actually his wife, but he made her forget him and instead raised her...by being an absent father. He had a kid with her, Morty, and spends all his free time with his son. While Beth finds an idiot, Jerry, who gives her summer. But actually...Jerry is the worst parts of Rick, expelled and implanted into a clone or creation. somehow summer inherits more of his intellect, and praises her more than Morty, yet keeps her at a distance and as far away from his "adventures" as possible because he wants to save her from the mental effects of personal loss and the strain of travelling through space and multiple dimensions.

Rick is miserable because in order to be Rick across all dimensions his wife died. Sounds impossible but what if. The only way the whole multiverse is kept together is if Rick is alive and she stays dead? So it was set up so that no matter what she dies early and it all started with the invention of the portal gun.

Further further to note. That maybe just maybe athe the creation of that gun the multiverse universe or whatever was broken and so it linked her life to the portal gun across all realities.

Why should we assume that the Beth we know is the daughter of the Rick we know? He could very well be a Rick with no one left in his own life so he’s taken the place of a different Rick, he’s done it before

Rick is just traveling within himself and experience life as one of his light bodies (creation) but he got lost within his creations (ideas) he is consciously aware all is just an experience but he got attached to an experience creating a memory and emotion to something in the physical. he is Consciously aware of this with his high sense of logic but he personally chooses to experience his lower senses form body which is the only rick we are consciously aware of human Rick. But subconsciously aware of other ricks only because he is too. no matter the realm rick needs his morty (feelings). Rick is the thought and Morty is the feeling of that thought that gives overall energy. Creating an idea to go in a new realm (universe, planet, etc.) so everyone is just a projection of Rick and his thoughts and feelings but and the mediation is like when you're mind is still with no idea or feeling of anything no one trying to give off their emotions and feelings

I like most of your theories, but you kinda glossed over the part about about memories being associated with ideas, which was the basis of the entire theory.

This is what i talk to myself about when depression hits me hard...”*it ironic?.... you are afraid to be alone for the rest of your life and you are constantly seeking attention from people so that you dont have to be alone anymore....but when they make you happy you think to yourself that you dont deserve every little thing they do for you and it ended up with you, hurting them and pushing them away from you coz you feel like if they stayed with you they will only feel miserable*” I KNOW ITS CONFUSING AND SORRY COZ MY BRAIN CANT TRANSLATE EVERYTHING I THINK OF TO EXACTLY WHAT I WANT IT TO BE TRANSLATED TO.... SORRY BAD GRAMMAR

I think it's simpler than that. He wanted to make Tony suffer and since death didn't scare Tony it didn't satisfy Rick at all.

In the episode we’re they we’re in blitz and chips when morty finishes playing roy and rick played it after if you look at rick during the scene when his playing it he has a smile in his face because when he played roy he felt in control of his life and i think why rick loves to go to blitz and chips because he can feel in control there through the games.this is just my theory on rick

i can attest to the creative thoughts part. As an artist, once you realize that fact it makes it easier. I always say, "you aren't going to create a new note, color, or word. You can only work with what we have. But only you can feel your feeling so strong that it pours out of you in those notes colors or words." No one really just one day picks up a talent. They are inspired to do something they saw, heard or felt and want to recreate it somehow. usually by picking up the same instrument that inspired them. then the act of practice is needed to be skillful in that endeavor. during this time you learn the combinations that work and the techniques you favor and don't. With that knowledge, you are then able to explore your creativity, or what the video is saying the remixing of those techniques and combinations. He's right, nothing is new.
