A thought… If homer is indeed “Dr Roberts” in his NDE or at least where his NDE takes place (aka, in my opinion, the place where prairie is at the end of the season) then prairie could have traveled to this parallel dimension where homer is Dr. Roberts and the prairie from that dimension was one of his patients. (I believe the theory that homers NDE and the place prairie ended up are the same dimension, in this dimension they’re in a mental hospital)
Now, we don’t know if homer is aware in this dimension or if he believes he is Dr Roberts OR if he actually is Dr Roberts (and prairie ended up in the wrong dimension)
So prairie from the original dimension (the one she traveled from) may have replaced the prairie from the dimension she traveled to.
This gives us many options as to what may happen. Homer could not recognize her and she must convince him (hard to do that as a patient), homer could know where he’s from but could be keeping up appearances, or homer, after he crossed, could have been deemed insane if he voiced his experiences. So many possibilities.
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)
What if OA did die when she jumped off the bridge, but it her records didn’t show she flat-lined because in her death she had entered another dimension? Converged with a self from a separate forked path…
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.
