  • too bad this show has a very strong resemblance to the Family Guy's "we don't do the womans side of the jokes" yeah its renound for it's appeal to the smartest men inTV land. And they use femist tropu with a node to thier mark on the world-yet its a world where men are who the show revolses around. why couldn't these two millionare genousous bring a women in asa driving force of the show. if they genouses made a n anoment saying the show need a brillaint womon on the creative team who whares in the wealth and fame they might have a show so unbelivable great that I could inenoy it without aknowing nothing changing or about to change for women and people of color or so forein they may as well be aliens.

  • I love how a chunk of the Rick and Morty fandom see themselves as Rick and use the show to justify their nihilistic behavior. Yet if you watch closely, the show subtly points out the flaws in Ricks character. It happens more and more as the series progresses. If you pay attention, you can really see how much of a hypocritical asshole Rick can be. It just makes me happy that so many “smart” people identify with the show for the wrong reasons, when it really is a meta-commentary that displays why those same people are toxic, self centered bags of skin. Life may not have meaning, but then again it totally could. What use is wasting the years we have, doubling down on the “uncaring smart guy” routine. Rick is the smartest guy in the universe, but even he can’t tell us why that universe exists. With his vast intelligence, he is just as clueless regarding the meaning of our existence as everybody else.

  • i personally believe there is meaning to our existence, perhaps not this form of flesh and bone but consciously evolving and eventually becoming a part of the universe, a part of an endless path of wonders and discoveries, with that said our current state is indeed complete meaningless

  • This was a pile of garbage. Rick and Morty in no way live in Lovecraftian Horror: Rick is _always_ in control. He has enough intelligence to know what's going on at all times, he would never fall for being e.g. in a car battery. It's also ridiculous to suggest that Gerry is more happy than Rick, Gerry is bullied, pushed around and just in pain in almost all episodes. Meanwhile Rick has various incredible adventures in which he has fun often - makes parties, dates a super intelligence and a planet, or builds the perfect toilet. And Rick doesn't consider his life pointless, either, he views his family as his responsibility. For instance, in the space parasites episode, the entire story lies on the fact that it _does_ matter whether the characters are parasites or people. Most of the episode is spent attempting to distinguish the two! And Mr. Poopy Butthole at the end was nothing but a joke, as you can see in the shock of all people around him. You're trying really hard to find deeper meaning in a show that is intended solely to entertain (which it does, and well!). Your attempt to find existentialism in a show where infinite realities and space monsters exist due to the fact that in actual reality, those two things do _not_ exist. At best, you could allow them to feel existential dread for _their_ reality, with no application to our own, but that would be rather pointless (and also wrong, as described above).

  • The bit about the universe not giving a shit about us reminds me of that comic strip from Calvin and Hobbes, by Bill Watterson: Calvin is staring at the sky on a clear summer night, then he shouts: "I'm significant!", then he pauses for a moment, and in the end says: "Screamed the dust speck".

    Gianna Di Biase CastroGianna Di Biase CastroPřed 6 měsíci
  • I'm a little baffled by this constant struggle to answer in one way or another we whether humanity is significant or not. In the grand scheme of the universe, we may not be. But we don't know that. As far as we know so far (even if we can suppose that this isn't the case), we are all there is. And at our current state, even if we DID know that we weren't alone in the universe, would that make our existence seem any less meaningful? Even if a highly advanced alien envoy came to us and said definitively that we aren't important in the big picture, would that really make us FEEL any less important? Would that really make us suddenly stop caring about whether we exist or not? Would not our human nature continue to dictate that we strive for the preservation of ourselves and our species as a whole? A nihilist would say that there is no inherent meaning in out existence, but also that each one of us is free to assign our own meaning, and that the only true meaning is the one we assign for ourselves. And after all, we are creatures largely driven by our emotion. And because there is so much I hereby emotion behind our desire (or lack thereof) to feel significant, do we not MAKE that so, simply by deciding to? It's like the idea that we are in a simulation. Maybe we are, maybe we aren't. I say, who cares? This is probably as real as it's going to get, and I never have and likely never will, know anything different. So what difference does it make if someone said, yes you are in a simulation, or no you're not in a simulation? Personally I don't care. In fact, if we DID know we were in a simulation, and we had a choice to either remain in it, or be free of it, unless we could know for sure that freedom would be better, I would choose to remain. This situation is a known quantity, the "reality" has infinite possibilities, and therefore, infinite ways it could be better, or indeed worse. And I don't like those odds. At least here I know what I'm getting. Disappointment, then disease, then death. With some comforts in between, for which we must be grateful. That's what it means to me, so that's what I do. Isn't that all that matters?

  • What's most fun is how a cartoon is passed as wisdom or knowledge, how they are saying Nietzsche was right but in reality that's not true, it's an idea, a good one, but not necesarily the truth and how we conform with such ideas to be truth to make our existence more bearable

    Jorge CañasJorge CañasPřed 7 měsíci
  • I just love those Sience bending hipsters that are so quick to atheism. You don't have to be Christian, Mormon, Jewish or Muslim to believe in something. Just because the religions you have been exposed to don't comfortably fit your narrative dosen't mean you don't believe in something. It's just sad that you don't realize it. You don't want to be labeled connected to any certain religious group, but you label yourself by associating with the massive Church of atheism. Good start to figuring out what you truly believe like it or not is for you 2 Express what you think is after this life. If you feel the need to label me say I am from the church of Truth where science happens, and beliefs although physically insignificant can be very important to a person mentally...
