I think I identify best with cosmic nihilism.

I don't think there's anything inherently special about human brains, just that the configuration of human brains is such that we're able to have an (anthropic) Experience.

But ... you would say that having a lobster experience is equally indifferent, to having a human experience?

What are you doing?
Are you taking any medications?
Don't do that.

I'm not a lobster, so I wouldn't know.

Nobody can hear you scream, in outer space, or if you are lobster in boiling water.

I've watched a few episodes, but I'm not quite prepared to annoint it as the greatest animated series of all time. It's entertaining, but quite divorced from reality.
All hail my new signature!

Admit it. You're secretly green with envy.

Well, I wish Rick could drool a bit less...

Aside from that, I think Rick&Morty is one of the best morality plays around today and the complications are astounding.  I am thinking of the episode where Rick drags Morty through layers and layers of virtual reality escaping form captivity.

And I love it when they combine universes of Ricks and Mortys.  And don't forget that the current ones aren't the original ones.  They were killed...

A dimension-hopping duo divorced from reality?  It'd be strange to expect otherwise.

Back in the 60s we had drugs, now we have animation and CGI video ;-)

Yeah, not real.  Never suggested otherwise.  I don't have a problem compartmentalizing fiction from reality.  ;)
