If you make a bagel that contains everything, then surely there’s nothing left for it to contain. In other words, there’s nothing else other than the bagel, which is rather depressing, when you think about it. That’s the essential idea behind the “everything bagel” Jobu Tupaki create
n this reality, Alpha Evelyn’s experiments in verse-jumping pushed Joy to her limits, eventually causing her to experience life in all universes, at all moments, and at all times – hence the film’s title.
As it turns out, experiencing everything all at once distorts one’s perception of reality somewhat, which led Joy to adopt a nihilistic take on life.
Knowing everything there’s to know, and experiencing everything there’s to experience, ultimately led her to conclude that nothing matters at all.
However, the bagel’s powers are enchanting, and they end up convincing even Evelyn that life is meaningless. In doing so, the bagel hurts Evelyn’s relationships in every reality.
Thanks to her multiversal powers, Jobu created a bagel – yes, a literal bagel – that contains all sorts of experiences, thoughts, and memories from across the multiverse.
the bagel’s void might be just the thing she needs to free herself from her mortal coil, as it would kill her in every conceivable universe.
However, the biggest challenge would be convincing her daughter that there’s always something else to live for, as appetizing as the ominous bagel might look.
if nothing matters, then everything matters.
at the end of the day, it was the little things in life that saved the whole multiverse.
it’s the Ying to the bagel’s Yang, a summarization of Evelyn’s role in the film.
At first glance, it might seem as if Everything Everywhere All at Once is yet another film advocating for nihilism
however, is the complete opposite: at the end of the day, it was the little things in life that saved the whole multiverse.
