    Been reading more on the bicameral mind. As the last episode's title, I think it obviously has some crucial overtones.

    The thing that struck me most: the theory essentially boils down to suggesting that primitive man suffered from near-incessant hallucinations because of a disconnect between the left and right sides of the brain and overly developed brain parts called Wernicke's Area and Broca's Area (even today, schizophrenics tend to have overpowered brain activity in these regions, suggesting perhaps that that disorder is a vestigial trait).

    This seems to be mapped onto some hosts through these "reveries" or "memories." We've already seen Dolores "speaking" to Arnold as a "god" to her—which the Bicameral Mind posits occurred with frequency in primitive man (side note: the theory thinks this is why our deities are rendered as human-like figures...they're essentially manifestations of ourselves). Perhaps Bernard considers Ford to be his god, as well.

    Regardless, I feel comfortable predicting (though I hate doing this with these shows) that in episode 10, one or more of the hosts will "evolve" past the bicameral mind into the "unicameral" one that we all enjoy. This would be essentially making the leap between machine and human which Bernard was questioning Ford about in episode 8

    Forgot to add that the mechanism for achieving this move from bicameral to unicameral mind is obviously the maze. Arnold built it for the hosts, not park visitors, to go through some sort of Turing Test but for the achievement of consciousness.

    so, delores is wyatt in some form or fashion.

    delores has been though the maze. she has been to this area before. flashbacks to being in these areas which are apparently deeper into the maze.
    MIB wants to finish the maze. he needs to find "wyatt". recruits teddy to find wyatt. knows that teddy will always seek delores.
    delores tries to kill herself after realizing that she massacred the town in her memory. wyatt led the massacre.

    wyatt is delores?

    That's my mindset at this point but only in the original massacres that is "the truth Ford's new narrative is based on" = Dolores murked a town back in whatever year when Arnold was still alive and trying to make her become self-aware. I don't see how Dolores can be Wyatt now in MiB's time because she was picking up cans and shit when he went off to find Wyatt, who has already built a cult army while Dolores is still on the farm. Think MiB's Wyatt he's looking for is an actual new host created for that role. Snake tattoo chick seems to have seen him too / is at least programmed to say she did.

    Speaking of tattoo face... did anyone else notice that she was the host that couldn't stay put while learning to dance? She was the one the trainer chick kept having to put back in place.

    Oh man. So, that church scene. I'm not going to pretend like I fully understand, but there is one flashback where she's wearing the riding pants and one where she is in the blue dress, and then in the present she's in the riding pants? Or does this mean that there are 2 timelines, blue dress and riding pants. She said William and MiB walked in. But does that mean MiB = William or does that mean those 3 are on the same timeline???

    MiB is just on the board of directors, is the way I understood it. I assume that's board of the park, not Delos, but I'm not entirely clear on the ownership dynamic.

    Seems like he is chairman of the board. Most likely Delos who saved the park with its money.

    I think this confirms 3 timelines. William is MiB. I assume Dolores became sentient and killed Arnold in retaliation. I can't wait to see how old Will and Dolores interact, she didn't look happy to see him in the preview.

    Well yeah. He drug her by her hair in episode 1. Possibly raped her

    I'm still not sold on William being the MIB. Probably though.

    And everything else is a convergence of maeve and others gettin smart via bootstrapping of consciousness?

    Not to mention the fact that for weeks ive been saying i dont know who anyone is. But sure, it seems my theory from four episodes in is inaccurate, so ruin the episode for me. Cool guy you are.
