        No wonder the mom and the little boy had such a connection. They were both switched

                  Interesting theory but one I dont particularly like or agree with. No wonder Matt came to this conclusion he lives in California. (Slow clap)
                  Boy I expect a lot of dislikes

                        I'm confused and my mind has become an absolute train wreck. Can someone please explain to me what the meaning of this theory is?

                          Um....... It was obvious that they switched. That wasn't a twist. If you didn't see that, you're dumb.

                            So...... He's seriously saying envy is an American thing? Um... No... That's universally human.

                                Didn't mention the motif of magic throughout. Rabbits, the magic trick, Merlin's forest, mirrors, smoke, etc.

                                    We are all the same. We eat, bathe, sleep, all in the comfort of our homes at the same time as other people do the exact same thing, but in a precarious situation. We grow up as good, civilized people as some others end up being broken because we are all products of our own environment.

                                              do you have a video about the movie Hereditary? I think it has a subtle metaphor too. I don't but the demonic cult; I think it's bullshit. so if anyone know any theory about it, please tell me

                                                  Jordan peele also said that its a commentary on the fear of "other" like immigration, party differences, etc when really people are the same AND he apparently said that bunnies are cute but their ears freak him out .
                                                  They do kinda look like their heads are upside down scissors
                                                  Also i think bunnies are representative of labs right? Where people did experiments to create the tether. Like the animal testing symbols is a bunny, right?

                                                                I thought it was about a test from god as the line from adelines doppelgänger said it was a test from god. It is also seen with Jeremiah 11:11. I thought that god was not satisfied with everyone on earth because they had no soul. I also had a feeling of materialism as well and agree completely with peeles message
