When OA has her second NDE from getting hit in the head by Hap she sees Khatun who tells her “All five of you must work together as one to avert a great evil.” To which OA responds “there’s only four of us” and Khatun says “you will see.”
I’ve been thinking about this a lot and the more I thought about it the more it seemed like Khatun was talking about the boys and BBA as the five. We initially think it must be the 5 of them trapped by Hap after Renata joins them, but Khatun tells OA in that same scene that as it is she will never escape. And she never actually did escape cause Hap let her go. Also “to avoid a great evil” sounds like it could be talking about the shooting in the last episode. It could also be talking about Hap because he is evil but it seems more like avoiding a great evil would fit better with preventing a mass shooting like they did, instead of escaping.
This is just a theory and sorry I’m a terrible writer but anybody add on or provide opposition if you would like. Love talking OA theories.
I was astonished to find that there was no evil in any soul.
I said, ‘How can this be?’
The answer was that no soul was inherently evil. The terrible things that happened to people might make them do evil things, but their souls were not evil. What all people seek, what sustains them, is love, the light told me. What distorts people is a lack of love.
The revelations coming from the light seemed to go on and on, then I asked the light, ‘Does this mean that humankind will be saved?’
Then, like a trumpet blast with a shower of spiraling lights, the Great Light spoke, saying:
‘Remember this and never forget; you save, redeem, and heal yourself. You always have. You always will. You were created with the power to do so from before the beginning of the world.’
An excerpt from Mellen-Thomas Benedict’s near-death experience (via @hiighsound)
I believe that the greatest truths of the universe don’t lie outside, in the study of the stars and the planets. They lie deep within us, in the magnificence of our heart, mind, and soul. Until we understand what is within, we can’t understand what is without.
