# Central Finite Curve Explained | Rick and Morty Season 5 Finale

I attempt to explain the Central Finite Curve coherently.

Some visual aids near the end (idk how helpful they are tho)

Script:

We’ve heard the phrase central finite curve in the series before,

and it basically got left at being the multiple universes we see.

In the finale of Rick and Morty Season 5, we learn a lot more about what it actually is,

and what it’s for.

A quick summary, as we heard in the finale episode, the central finite curve is the set of Rick dimensions,

walled off from the universes with higher threats to Rick.

To go further into it, there’s an infinite number of universes,

with an infinite number of the Rick universes, and an infinite number of non Rick centered ones.

This part confuses people, with part of infinite being thought as finite.

In truth, both sets of universes are infinite, that when put together, make the fully included infinity.

If we listen to how Evil Morty says it,

you can hear he says there’s two sets of infinite universes.

This blows the capacity out of proportion, as now we know there’s a second set of infinite possibilities,

that could have any number of differences along with Rick not being top dog.

There could be completely new threats, although we don’t yet know if the series is going to explore outside the curve at all.

In the show, Evil Morty shows off a hologram of the central finite curve, and it looks very much like an infinite fibonacci spiral of universes.

Using what is shown, we can see that looking at the full infinite, Rick isn’t on top in a majority of the universes.

The amount in the curve is very limited in scale compared to outside of it.

This is why, in the Squirrel scene in Morty’s Mind Blowers, Rick says that they can only jump to a new safe dimension a couple times.

There’s a relatively small number of universes in the curve that would have the requirements needed to step in like nothing happened,

and now we know that it’s because the curve is separating a majority of the universes,

and they don’t have Rick on top, so they wouldn’t be wanted anyway.

This is the whole reason Evil Morty wants to get out of the curve as well.

He doesn’t want to be in a universe where Rick is on top all of the time,

so he bided his time, and made a plan, one that went off without a hitch.

We don’t know the current status of the curve itself after the episode,

there’s people on both sides saying it is, and isn’t fully broken.

Here’s 2 ways of visualizing the curve.

One, as a circle.

Think of the circle as having an infinite circumference.

If you take a piece of that circle, and separate it,

You have two different sets of infinity,

One side is smaller, due to some kind of rule, in this case, a top dog Rick,

the other side contains everything else.

These two sets of never-ending pieces would still be classified as infinite.

Now, another way, take a line,

again this displays the full infinity.

If we take out this middle piece,

we can see there’s a big difference in the possible amount,

but if the full line is never ending,

these segments of that line will also never end.

Even though the Rick universes are walled off,

There’s still an infinite amount of them, along with an infinite amount of non-Rick universes.

I hope I explained this somewhat coherently.

There’s still plenty we don’t know about the curve as well.

We don’t know exactly when it was built, or even if it was created before the citadel.

I hope they don’t completely end the Evil Morty arc here,

although by previous experience, we are waiting until Season 7 to see him again.

If you enjoyed, leave a like, and subscribe to support the channel, I’d greatly appreciate it.

Ok, it's easy to think Rick C-137 decided to create the Finite Curve to trap the Rick that killed his family inside, but what if that wasn't the objective, what if it was the opposite?

The killer Rick realizes this wall is being created by the man who wants him dead, so naturally, he scapes, according to C-137 plans.

Now he is trapped outside, outside of the party of infinite Ricks he desired so much, outside in a multiverse where he is no longer the smartest man, alive, and outside, or he was.

That would be awesome as a new villain for the show.

There are more requirements. The reason it is a handful of times is because they need a universe where whatever they screwed up is Either fixed or never happened. They need a universe with similar humanoid people, AND they need a universe where the Rick and Morty of that universe have died. There are criteria that universe has to meet so they can move realities.

Only thing about this whole explanation (not yours, the show's), is that if Rick is the top dog in every universe contained in the central finite curve, then the fact that evil Morty got the best of him contradicts that statement. Evil Morty should have already existed outside the curve.

the thing is, why name of this curve is "central FINITE curve". Also, as long as it is infinite it would not make sense that they can only find a new fitting reality only a couple of times, there would always be suitable realities in infinite possibilities, even if only including universes where rick is the smartest.

Nice

The whole "we only have a few universe to travel to" always confused me cause it's infinite but now it makes much more sense
