Saying that random groups of people or fictional charaters are actually possesed by ghosts of children, impostors or AI.

And then he starts over again with a new possibly contradicting story.

    To add to this theory: "Overflow" could very well be referring to a buffer overflow. For those who don't know, in computing, a buffer overflow is when a part of a computer's data exceeds its specified storage capacity. When this happens, the overflowing data ends up in a different part of the computer, which can cause glitches and weird effects. It could be that the green light is a buffer overflow occurring, overflowing from one instance of the simulation to another one, at a different point in time. This could also explain the time jump that Peter experiences - it could be that he's actually been relocated to a different instance of the simulation that's not in sync with his first one. Even the word "async" fits with this explanation: the time jumps are a result of jumps between instances which are running asynchronously.

    • @thierryvt
      @thierryvt 5 หลายเดือนก่อน +21

      There's also the fact that an overflow can reset a value back to 0. When performing additions in binary 1+0 = 1 and 1+1 = 0 (which gives you an extra bit that you need to carry to the next position on the left).
      So if we have a 3 bit memory slot (just to keep it short and easy) it would go something like this: 000 (0) -> 001 (1) -> 010 (2) -> 011 (3) -> 100 -> 101 -> 110 -> 111.
      So at 111 we've reached the end, right? So what happens if we add 1 again anyway? Following the same rules as before we loop back to: 000 and have 1 extra bit that should be carried to the next position (if we had 4 bits of room 111 would have become 1000).
      Not (or incorrectly) handling these overflows in either software or hardware can have very weird effects because it might corrupt something outside of the assigned memory space or cause something to loop over and over.

    My theory has always been the backrooms are a barrier between the other dimensions and our world, which are meant to trap lesser monsters by tricking them into thinking they broke through into our world. Building this huge, maze-like creation between dimensions has created some faultlines in our world where the creation isn't properly fastened.

      @Tom-uy4io 3 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      other "instances" of the simulation we live in. if something goes horribly wrong in another simulation, it collapses into the backrooms. The beings who created this simulation were smart enough to include a barrier between simulations, so when one collapses, it collapses into that "midway", instead of into another simulation. But sometimes, this simulation glitches, and part of it turns into a direct reference to the Backrooms, creating "portals".

    Interesting fact about the term "overflow": It's a programming term as well. "Integer overflow" occurs when two numbers are added together and the result is larger than the data type can hold, causing the result to wrap around back to the minimum number. It's a very common thing to see programs crash because a careless programmer didn't check for overflow and to see a normal-looking number, say "seconds that this program has been running" loop from "32,767" to "-32,768". If you then feed that garbage number into other areas of the program that are expecting a sane value, it can create all sorts of havoc. Like, oh...if a simulation of reality had a number like "number of rooms" and it suddenly overflowed from a very large number in the billions to a very large NEGATIVE number in the billions because a hacker went and added a whole bunch of new space.

  • @corbyndaclassical

    In a general way of how the Backrooms operates, it largely reminds me of the Upside-Down from Stranger Things. In the last bit of the video with the house in real life and in the backrooms, it seems as if they are taking place at the same time, just like how in Stranger things, the Upside down can be happening at the same time as reality. With the vines in the other room, it gives it even more of the vibe.
    Wasn't sure if this was important, or the maker of the video/lore/concept took inspiration from Strangerthings, etc.

    Kane Pixels has created one of the most original and compelling narratives I’ve ever seen. The storytelling is absolutely phenomenal. Add in his superb visuals and you’ve got the best content to come along - in any medium - in years. I hope he continues to expand this story. I’d say that I’d love to see his Backrooms turned into a series of films, but I’d be afraid that a major studio would screw it up. Better to just leave it up to Kane.

    So according to MatPat, the Backrooms's bacteria monster actually a red herring. It isn't the real horror lurking in the backrooms; what is the horror is that by simply interacting with the backrooms you allow holes to form in our reality draining into it. And over time those holes will get bigger and more prevalent. Eventually all of our world will simply be sucked into the Backrooms and be assimilated into it, like a home crumbling into the sea.

    • @bordaz1
      @bordaz1 ปีที่แล้ว +26

      I disagree. The bacteria monsters are not a red herring but the focus of a plot twist. So, Matpat and us theorists have focused on the tangible motifs of Kane's backrooms: its fearful entities, its disruption of time and space, and its exploitation by ASYNC. But there's a less-tangible motif: while some of the glitchy videos we see are the symptoms of reality tears (that Simpsons one), others are CLEARLY manipulated by an elusive intelligence, leaving clues and warnings (Autopsy Report, Home_27467). I think, at least right now, that the source of that intelligence is the bacteria. The entities will become the protagonists.

    What if the Backrooms isn’t people no-clipping out of reality but they are actually asleep (or unconscious) and they are having dreams/nightmares of an unescapable realm that is all set in their heads and if they get caught by the creatures (maybe some mental health issue that they have either dealt with or are still dealing with) catches them, then they do a self murderder unconsciously? And also sometimes these dreams would bleed into reality, (like when that girl dropped a plate and it disappeared.) And I think A-Sync found a way to get to this mental state of mind and found a way to get the memories of being in the Backrooms from the suddenly dead people. Just a theory and I am most likely wrong but it just popped in my mind. 🤷‍♂️ (Also if you find a way out of the Backrooms you are free of the mental health.)

  • @eldritchchaos2663

    As a massive Greek mythology nerd I can't help but compare the infinite randomly-generated expanse of the Backrooms to the lore of Daedalus' Labyrinth, and specifically the added lore from book 4 of the Percy Jackson series titled Battle of the Labyrinth, which introduced the premise of locations popping up all over the globe where people are falling into the Labyrinth, almost like they no-clipped into the Backrooms.

      I think that the different time anomalies and past and future objects in the back rooms proves that it’s a simulation, because if a simulation was created and ran on a computer, everything that will happen is already coded into the simulation. In other words, everything that has and hasn’t happened yet in the world has always been happening concurrently and will happen again infinitely many times

    The book Hawkins’s Hallway by Neil Shusterman (I think) featured a random number algorithm that once incorporated into a machine, would teleport the machine to a random location on Earth and give off energy to the area. Maybe some random number algorithms were plugged into Async’s portal and would cause random openings to appear around earth?

      More Hawkings Hallway stuff, a character named Vince came in at the end of the book to show other characters a puzzle cube of sorts, while he was glowing GREEN. There was a house mentioned to be at the bottom of the sea, and the book featured a house that got teleported to the bottom of Loch Ness. Almost certainly unrelated but interesting nonetheless.

    19:42 On google maps, there used to be a 3d image of the backrooms in that very spot if you went into street view. Everyone thought it was just a prank that some kids pulled, but I think it is possible that Kane himself, being a smart kid, put that image there. There was another spot just like it on a coast near the ocean with the same image of the backrooms posted on the street view. I think this could possibly tie into "I had a home once, a manor, overlooking the sea".
    Edit: They removed the image shortly after so you dont need to go looking for it. There are many videos on youtube though showing what I am talking about.

    Really, really happy that "I remember" is important. Writing is very important to any story and kane (or one of his associates if he didn't write it) did a phenomenal job with that video and how the statements made by an async employee are presented. One of those videos I just caught myself watching repeatedly because it just flowed well, and felt rather well thought out and intelligent among a mess of repetitive suggestions that bore me in my suggested feed. Kane parsons is a genius, and I can't wait yo continue to see this story unfold.

    My thinking is, instead of the Backrooms being part of a simulation, is it's the graveyard of shattered realities. When the universe breaks apart, the bits that fall off end up in the Backrooms, until eventually the entire universe shatters and ends up there

    • @Goldenkitten1
      @Goldenkitten1 ปีที่แล้ว +13

      The video "I Remember" is the one that backs this theory up the best. Whether the Backrooms is sentient or not the voice is still speaking as if from its POV and the implications are obvious. Everything eventually winds up in the backrooms, even when the "Eternal Ghost" of your dimension is gone the Backrooms has absorbed them in a mirrored fashion thus it "Remembers" them.

      @@jjbarajas5341 ​ By definition, the Backrooms are infinite in size. Thus they can swallow the entire universe. Even if they are not infinite, if they are constructed as it goes, they will swallow everything eventually. I believe more in the theory that the first "failed test" was the first bullet hole into reality... and then it started to stretch infinitely. Even if ASync did nothing more and tried to SCP it, it is too late. The rips have a cascading effect.

    Fr someone should make a movie or series that follows Kane in the initial found footage video AND his friends, like from different perspectives through the movie. It can keep cutting to Kane in the back rooms and then his friends (who u can see clearly witnessed him noclip) trying to figure this out and get in contact with the authorities. The whole movie will be a mish-mash of his friends trying to get the authorities to work with them or even just believe them, Kane’s experience in the back rooms and (kinda similar to maze runner) just little clips and snippets of history abt A-sync slowly keying the viewer in on what’s happening. It’ll seem like stranger things in a way with the kinda vintage feel to it and sci-fi stuff

    Overflow could be a reference to a programming/calculation error that occurs when the data type used to store data was not large enough to hold the data. This would make sense from the backrooms being a simulation angle and seems to imply an overflow error in time could be causing all the wonky time shifting stuff.

    The video Overflow could be referencing integer overflow in computers, where inputting too large a number causes the computer to "overflow" back to a negative number, and the same thing works in reverse, too. If the Backrooms follow video game/computer simulation logic, this could be why time is unstable in this series. This fits really well with MatPat's time loop theory, which I'm sure everyone caught on to, but I wanted to mention it anyway.
