“Anyone continuing to explore the Citadel is either stupid or one of the unfortunate millions held hostage by their terrible ideas.”
To all of you who- “saw through the references” like “Too damn high”, “The Wire”, Trump, “Breaking Bad”, “Stand By Me”, “Harry Potter” etc.-
If you want a well-written review on this episode, go and read Steve Greene’s article on IndieWire. If you want to enter the rabbit hole to get the red pill for you to pass to your friends, then all you get is my dry and tiresome amateur writing style.
If afterwards you feel like you could make it feel better, and you’re willing to work on it because it’s worth it to make more people aware-
I think you should most definitely go for it. Take it or leave it. I’ll cooperate for sure.
Ive got past four drafts before finally completing the task i set to myself.
My biggest challenge is to structure my thoughts properly into a coherent flow of text.
After first usage, the following words will instead be represented as the capital letters:
RM – Rick & Morty, respectively. D – Dimensions. C – Citadel.
Next i will show you exactly where you subliminally agree and succumb to a perceived narrative. I call these LENSES. Each will be signed by @.
This is the real crux of it all. As it affects any normal person, not only those who watch this episode without prior knowledge.
Before you even started watching the episode, you have been committing to the characters of R&M and comparing to your own. You accepted their manners, emotions, fears… You were treated by your immediate culture into believing what reality is and what to expect of it.
- Time travel is impossible in reality and in the series.
Time traveling would mean the ability to stimulate all objects in the universe by will- To create a different reality other than your present since it would be impossible to change the past.
- That means Rick has no formula for portals, only for channeling his power.
In this sense, Rick is closer than anyone to the status of God creator, but since he is not the only one actually modifying realities, he is factually a SOLIPSIST.
- Also – Other dimensions also do not exist for the same logical reasoning;
All the dimensions exist in current realities as shades of possibilities, being either closer or relatively further from us.
Meaning that a R/M from another D is just their reflection, or in other words-
Rick and Morty both are suffering from a multiple personality disorder,
While i would like to use the term SCHIZOPHRENIA – A split mind.
REALITY IS ONE. MIND IS ONE.
@ R&M go on an adventure. You remain seated.
The separation of you and the episode is now in effect and ongoing.
@ To you, every RM of other D is a distinct, sentient being, while simultaneously being themselves. This is called SCHIZOPHRENIA – A split mind.
You may agree to yourself even that they each do or do not possess freedom of choice.
Regardless of what you think on the matter- they all do, be they even the same R/M.
@ You are triggered into addressing the USA “Racial” issues:
Such as police brutality, morality, aggression towards youngsters etc.
@ You will therefore be expecting cultural and/or american references, humour. You will therefore recognize and react emotionally to music, images and other types of signals, as if you were a pavlov’s dog. That is called “Emotional mind control”.
@ Last but not least, notice the intruders asked RM to contribute while they appear to be asking for a donation. Now culturally accepted MONEY is also in effect.
When you really think about what i now laid out- you will arrive at the conclusion about the real and true message of this whole episode. You can actually stop reading right now.
*But for the sceptics i have some questions that would make your logic start itching:
- What is the purpose for the Citadel ever existing in the first place?
- Why would any RM leave their D to build this structure, to what end?
- How would the C appear and operate initially when it is build by a population half of which are intellectual geniuses with capital G?
- With only “two” people existing there… why would they need ANY form of government instead of cooperating between similar Ds, for example?
2nd and 3rd minutes: We are shown the 4 different narratives.
@ Notice the police are practicing for an already existing common enemy.
@ You are shown a TV News programme that nobody watches but you. WHY?
@ You are also shown a TV commercial for a very specific product.
@ You will try to analyze the elections from a trump regime point of view.
@ The schooling system looks familiar, as students try to graduate towards a given standard instead of affirm themselves. Your memories are exploited.
@ So is the factory, where the biggest lie is in that you are reduced to a cog in a vast machine serving someone else… Your sense of justice is being altered.
MONADISM – Let’s call it what it is.
I would suggest you notice how characters are named in this episode:
- Like instead of calling each RM by D of origin, they are addressed by name.
- Slow Rick is EUPHEMIZED into “Tall Morty”
- The owner of the factory is paradoxically “Rick the IIIrd”
- The shady R in the bar is Meta-addressing the issue himself.
- MY POINT BEING THAT, ULTIMATELY, EVIL-M’ IS FACTUALLY GOOD.
::FACTA NON VERBA::
This is the LEITMOTIF of the episode, and it reflects on the fact that while speech is a form of action, to modify reality takes action and continuous effort.
:EVIL MORTY’S DEBATE:
Coming after a series of passing gas by his R subordinates, his public speech affects you most of all, since the public ALREADY HAS a common enemy threatening them.
Then, an interesting and gradual shuffle takes place; from your perspective yet unconsciously, his every phrase is only referring the NEXT set of images that YOU perceive.
It is triggered in your brain by the image of the herd audience and the Ms that, too, go on an adventure, just like our RM in the beginning.
- It is the police force that treats everyone the same, not the school.
- And it is the incompetent worker that gets a gun to compensate his inabilities, instead of fighting the corrupt system he is a part of. You now “keep the change” in the real world; in the thought form about salaries and money.
Be happy with what you got. By the way reader, what have you done lately?
- “The R&Ms that feed on the C’s death” are supposed to be the ones who manage to flee from the MATRIX in your minds, while “Those who are keeping it alive” is simultaneously portrayed by the zombified and matrixed Rick.
LOOK IN THE MIRROR.
THE CITADEL IS A METAPHOR FOR THE MATRIX WE CURRENTLY LIVE IN ON PLANET EARTH, AND THE ONES WHO DON’T BELIEVE IT- THE ARTISTS,
They actively try to convince you that the point R-0716-C makes, is what an intellectual like you would do. You are civilized, aren’t you. You know at the back of your mind it could always be worse, that countless problems await you just as you dial down your awareness.
The transition to the newscast reportage is being spliced with the motif of being a prick in this episode. Again- a question- who inside your skull was watching the Morty debate scene, and which part of you was watching Rick’s attempt of redemption from the citadel?
Regardless of your opinion on Evil Morty before, now and after, his speech about “Seeing every R as his R and him hoping to be everyone’s’ Morty” is a key element to developing this whole mess:
Was he contradicting his beliefs or the very existence of the show’s premise, or was he addressing the state of affairs from a sober perspective that fits only yours, as a viewer?
The bar scene depicting M drinking booze is shifting now to a BUNCH OF M’ JUNKIES watching TV while fear is being translated in your’s perspective new background.
THE CREATORS STRAIGHT OUT TELL YOU WHO YOU ARE IN ALL OF THIS.
The pace of editing our immersions and loopholes is really impressive, and i think you should at least reckon the vast operations we all undergo when we simply “Netflix n’ chill”…
Keep on reading to reveal the complexity of JUNKIE RICK’s portal malfunction.
:THE PORTAL MOTIF:
Portals are the most tangible premise of the whole R&M series.
They are symbolical to the audience not only cause of the appeal to gamers and Sci-Fiers alike, but as representors of the (shared) creative process, and the ability to navigate the rest of the universe that is beyond our bodies. Otherwise they’re not important and uninteresting.
- The fatal portal
- The chopper Dimension portal
- The garbage dump
- The space section?
This was a question that intrigued me since the very first episode- What might happen if a portal goes wrong? happily, we all know now… It kills you while you disintegrate.
Fortunately, no other Rick in the series so far has been a real junkie, that being the reason why weren’t shown that.
IF YOU REALLY AGREED TO THAT STATEMENT ABOVE I ADVISE YOU TO STOP READING.
APPARENTLY YOU’RE TOO DUMB TO REALIZE. Why do you think the building is then destroyed by implosion, after a familial betrayal and three Ms being held down so effectively after a whole bunch of shit went down in the episode and will, later?
Unlike the Portal Video Games, we were never truly explained the nature of how this gadget works, how it surfaces; under what conditions, what fluid does it take to fuel.
THERE WAS A MASSIVE, UHHHMM…. HOLE IN THE WHOLE PLOT THING FOR YEARS NOW AND NONE OF YOU’VE NOTICED OR CARED. YOU REALLY SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF.
Don’t Worry, You’re Going To a better place soon.
The second portal – The Blender Dimension
The last remaining portals:
Dumping the garbage of a whole society is a highly responsible job.
On the one hand, we might not expect youngsters to know how their world is built,
But we might expect the mighty scientists to come up with a better dis-solution of shit for the whole community, right?
On the second hand: We might expect the evil ruler to execute his opposers arrogantly, without mercy, but why not use the garbage dumping portal to eliminate unnecessary risk?
Was he somehow predicting that a dumb M might fall right then and there and find the evidence enough to overthrow him? Do you know take this possibility seriously, reader?
WHY WAS THIS CONNECTION BEING MADE IN OUR UNCONSCIOUSNESS?
THE THEATER OF RICK
For some unexplained reason we start to see more and more Rs that appear “in character”,Starting with “Farmer Rick.” in the part of the youngsters’ adventure when they symbolically try to “gain the forbidden fruit of knowledge“.
@ His words still suggest that all these people do not share a familial bond.
They instead rely on “Money”, but suffer a cognitive dissonance all through and through.
Passing through a river stream, the shot transition takes us shortly to a bonfire,
Where not by mistake, each M is REALIZING his fantasies as his potential.
@ One M is admitting to be made in a factory line, similar to the mini-scenery we see in every episode of the third season. This connects to all your stream of thoughts regarding The factory R – tractating him as overly-dramatic,
in an attempt to calm your call for justice.
- Farmer Rick
- Willy Wonka R the III
- Plumber Rick
- Baby Rick
BUT THE HIDDEN REASON THEY ARE ALL IN THIS EPISODE IS FOR YOU TO ACCEPT THE NOTION OF RICK AS A POLICEMAN– WHO THEREFORE ENACTS GOVERNMENT STATISM.
Otherwise there’s really no purpose to any of them unless you think it’s all been building up towards a stupid “SERPICO” reference.
In the case that you did managed to keep your mind’s eye peeled up to this point, it’s all been “canceled out” by the presence of StripCowBoy Morty and his comment on prop guns.
Right when the assassination attempt was about to take place, i had already knew in my heart what “BIG REVEAL” i’ll get in the end…
If you’ve connected this scene to any one historical politician in particular, your mind is taken over by statism and you still believe in Slave-Govern-Ment.
APPOINTING GOVERNMENT (MIND:CONTROL) IS EVIL ALREADY-
IT’S OF LITTLE IMPORTANCE WHO STANDS BEHIND IT.
Be it race or gender that concern you, try to point out which character traits keep dividing the Rs and Ms in their “Gender-Roles” all over this made-up society…
@@@ THEY ACTUALLY SHOWED YOU A RICK WHO CLONED HIMSELF ! ! ! !
This is similar in a way to the appearance of Rick D. Sanchez The IIIrd.
I mean like, how do you let it past you? THEY SHOW YOU EVERYTHING.
Pointing out that the first appearance of actual BankNotes in the story is when we are introduced to the DRUG LORD M. @@@@
You won’t be even questioning who is righteous and who is “evil”.
It is time for you to wake up FROM YOUR MEDIA ADDICTION.
FOR FUCK’S SAKE, SOMEONE EXPLAIN HOW COULD THERE BE ANY RICK THE 3RD?
The “Simple Rick” is the product they sold you, not the waffles. You see, from an abstract, objective point of view, he is a mirror image of yourself watching the episode, mindlessly. His freedom is promised only by an aggressive act of someone who finally lost everything, but in the end, the elites behind the media will deal with that too.
You, like the R&M who went to atlantis already know what you want in life- You all know exactly what is important to you. But you’re too lazy and so the MATRIX will suck you dry. This episode poisoned your emotions with the fear of familial betrayal as the excuse not to fulfil your purpose in life, and you got replaced with your surrogate.
We go back to the bunch of Ms, who, like you, symbolically passed on from trying to acquire real knowledge to free themselves, and instead go on dreaming.
They still realize the irony, their fake standards, and social conditioning.
@ But the one who dared to fantasize the extravagant dream was sent to his death.
DREAMING WON’T GET YOU ANYWHERE UNLESS YOU DO SOMETHING.
“RICKLANTIS MIXUP” was designed this way so that your reckoning with the tragic Morty who killed himself, the unfortunate Rick who lost it, and finally the campaign manager Morty who tried to put a stop to the evil system WILL ALL TWIST YOUR BRAIN.
Into believing that a person who;
- ACTUALLY DID SOMETHING USEFUL IN LIFE
- Got rid of corrupt and unjust police.
- Changed the morbid schooling for good.
- Eliminated the cynical cabal of elitists.
- BASICALLY STANDS AGAINST ANY FORM OF SCHIZOPHRENIA OR MIND CONTROL
Is somehow a threat to your gentle soul who struggles against this cruel world.
TIME TO FACE IT, sunshine- The only two triggers that faced you away from the one true savior of all this series personal (as well as worldview) problems are based in your total compliance with your own whims of emotional dependency:
- @ HIS WORDS CONTRADICTED HIS ACTIONS UP TO THIS POINT.
- @ A FAMILIAR AND OMINOUS TRACK PLAYED IN THE BACKGROUND.
