The Upside Down is Inside Eleven’s Mind – Stranger Things Theory


This theory is a continuation of my Mind Flayer is Eleven’s Brain Tumor Theory. In my latest Stranger Things Theory, I break down the possibility that the Upside Down Dimension is just Eleven’s Subconscious Mind Realm and the Mind Flayer and Demogorgons are just mental representations of her brain tumors growth. I’ve found a few clues that could point to this possibility.

Like I say in the video I’m still leaning toward the first possibility that the Upside Down is a real parallel dimension, not Eleven’s mental realm, but in a way it kind of makes more sense for all of this to be occurring in Eleven’s mind, if she is indeed the cause of it. What do you think?

I'm interested in anything out of the ordinary. Usually anything science-fiction-related and the darker the better, but I also really like positive character growth and emotional arcs in storytelling. I'm also fascinated by the unknown, I like trying to piece the whole picture together, which is why I enjoy making Theories. I will post more on than on YouTube, because it's faster, so keep coming back for more!
