    Well fluoride is meant for your teeth. Yet it's also meant to kill rats and mice and higher doses. Keep in mind it's coming from factories. Instead of being dumped in the ocean why not feed it to the millions of us. Not mind control but brain and body decay.

    We spit out toothpaste and mouthwash. Wonder why we don't do the same for tap water 😌

      If the tethered had to copy the originals in their world. How did they have time to plan? While the originals sleep? And how many people went into that house and got cloned? Seems like thousands

        What you're saying is not true. The clones were made to try to control them but when they realized they couldn't control the surface and all the clones did was mirror what the surface people did the program was canceled. Also Red specifically said that there is no soul in the tethered because there is only one soul that being another reason the programming failed.

            the thought of hands across America actually being a real thing that happened in the 80’s is so creepy to me even if it was for a good cause

              The fact the people don't believe what the rulers of this world are capable of doing is beyond me. If a group of individuals have the power, wealth, and control, don't you think they can create what we normally see in these scifi, futuristic films? Don't you think they've already had access to cloning, tech we only see in films, and much more shit that's sickening and beyond our imagination imagination? I truly believe people don't want to believe what's really going on because living a lie is easier on the mind.

                      When did they swap. And where did the burn marks come from?

                        Okay. But it doesn't explain the burn marks on the face. How could they have switched?

                          I dont think the son was swapped ,but I think it’s actually scarier when you know the symbolic meaning of the movie you just watched...

                              People with heart problems often have no rythem. Not being able to feel a beat, doesn't make someone a shadow person, clone, or abnormal.That was just a weak connection that I've seen everywhere.

                                    The Tethers were created to control the Humans ... Aaaah, that's why the "real" Jason backing up caused the "Tether" Jason to back up. Because they are the opposite of what we were led to believe. That cinches that question for me: "Jason" in most of the movie was actually the Tether.

                                                      I think both sets of kids are hybrids, which also explains why the son and daughter were not so shocked and kind of cold/unemotional when they were in the house with the dead bodies of the white friends. They were only half shocked, not what you would expect from a human with a complete soul?

Also notice how the scissors upside down looks like bunny ears as well as red bunny eyes when pressed against the red overalls...rant over.

I gathered it was something to do with "controlling the public" up top. But how?? What does that mean? Why would the government make doppelgangers that influence their surface counterparts? Did I miss something? When did this first start, why, and how are there 300 million clones living underground? Does EVERY U.S. citizen have a clone? Why didn't this Tether Revolt happen much sooner? This film is so open-ended. I need ANSWERS. I don't like the ambiguity. I wanna know ALL the details....
