        Hey, didn't Robert Heinlein go down this path with 6-to-the-power-of-6-to-the-power-of-6 alternate universes where authors got to hang out with the characters that they created? (I think he smoked some bad weed that day)

          I wonder if the writers ever watch stuff like this and go, "Oh, is that what we were doing? Hmm."

            I liked this theory because I always believed that yes rick says he fabricated that memory of Beth and his wife dying but I believe he was selective to what he was referring to. I believe that really did happen to him and the only memory he fabricated was the formula for the portal gun. I think rick went straight to another dimension that was almost exactly like the one he was living right after the bombing. But once he noticed the differences between both dimensions, he got to depressed and eventually left that version of Beth and his wife. He is the smartest man in the universe after all. Knowing that your one true wife in the universe died and he couldn’t replace her. That is reason why toxic Rick is so attached to his Morty because he cares about that original version of Morty. Even though he can clone them with no problem, he has these attachments and he views them as toxic. Which might be the main reason for his depression...the loss of his original wife.

                Not sure if you’re a fan or not but South Park did some really meta stuff by posting a number to buy streaming rights to their “spin off shows”. These shows went by terrify farms, pc babies, one for the ladies, and Scott Malcason. Each was listed in the phone recording if you called the number. On top of that the show even calls out Disney at the beginning where Mickey Mouse asks. “Tegriry farms? Do I own that”
                Then a random third party yells not yet. This means I think anyone who can stream may be able to get rights to one of more of these spin offs for cheap be it YouTube or even YouTubers or any of the big platforms. I think they just want to prove a point.

                          okay so before I finish the video6:10 what if unity was secretly Beths  mother but she died and rick bought her back as an alien thing that takes control of other people, probably why we never saw unity's real form

                            Great job. If anything, he's a wounded empath. Such intelligence doesn't come without a finely attuned central nervous system, albeit he displays a lot of reactionary, almost PTSD-like avoidance at times.

                                    What if summer was Rick's wife? Through some device she was sent into a reverse time warp into the future... Does that make sense lmao

                                      It's been awhile since I've seen these seasons but wasn't the only reason Rick kept Morty around because he was dumb?

                                                Just a thought, but Beth is noticable more pale in color than the rest of her family is because she is a clone.

                                                    Hey I know this is random, but I have been rewatching Rick and Morty, and I don't know, I feel like we aren't watching the episodes in the right order. Granted the continuity is emaculate, and we'll built, but we hear Rick say and refer to things that we haven't really seen, especially in the earlier seasons. contact me matt if ur interested in my idea, and more details of it, but basically I'm thinking that the pilot isn't the first event to occur chronologically, I mean it most likely is there's not much else saying no. But where was Rick in the 8 years? His wife died but how and when? Did he leave or come from somewhere else?

                                                          Just to point out, Rick and Morties mind blowers after she brings them back to status quo. Summer states "“No wonder you're constantly fighting with each other and behind schedule." I wouldn't say she's his favorite but something more sinister behind her character.

                                                            one theory: Every rick in the multiverse is connected through random memories, and young rick is actually a rick from a different dimension who actually experienced his wife and daughter dying

                                                            another theory: Rick isn't human. this could explain how smart he is, how he can make anything out of virtually nothing, and even explains how he miraculously isn't dead (he isn't lucky, he is immortal)

                                                                  Riq IV: " Alright calm down! We have his Summer as a hostage... obviously I get her. You guys play "Rick, Lasers, Scissors" for the Morty.

                                                                  Perhaps I'm getting closer to an answer ☝🏽

Because in Rick's mind, making himself suffer and punishing himself for every single possible thing is the only solution, Because he hates himself and blames himself deeply for all his suffering as well as all evil and crap in the multiverse.

Every time that rick changes reality to live there if there are truly infinite they wont have lets say a few chances to do it BUT, the realities that are the same as the one that he wants to be part of are limited even in the random spectrum.

Although yes, it is present.
