Tin foil science, for shiggles

Hey guys, love your work, thanks so much.

I know of course that Reflectatine (TM) (if that is the correct name) is not tin, or aluminum, foil, but physics has an ironic joke for us. Apparently, wearing foil headgear to protect oneself from government (or other) radio waves actually amplifies those waves. Here’s an article: https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2012/09/tin-foil-hats-actually-make-it-easier-for-the-government-to-track-your-thoughts/262998/

LG’s mask, and hat, and behavior (including and maybe especially the “Friends of Nemo” group, as well as the alarm system and photography) are all similar examples of supposedly protective behavior that reinforces (and even amplifies) the paranoia.

Worth noting, he survives the psychic blast of 11/2 because he’s in a hall of mirrors. Also, love “friends of Nemo” — presumably referring to Captain Nemo in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (by Jules Verne, where Nemo has an epic battle with a giant squid). Apologies if this is redundant.

Thanks again, keep up the great work!
