Stranger Things: 5 Things That Don’t Make Sense
It was first discovered when eleven tears opened up to a “wound” or portal size while spying on Soviet agents. Once this happens, the Mindflare and Demogorgons begin to learn about the real world, wreaking havoc in Hawkins, the once-sleeping city of Indiana. However, nothing is known about its creation — is it as old as our universe? Did it arise spontaneously or was it formed by some kind of intellect? What function does its existence even facilitate?
The Duffer brothers claimed that the specifics of the upheaval were deliberately blocked to create a tense atmosphere full of secrets and threats hidden behind the shadows. The problem is that the shadows are indistinguishable in their nature. Demogorgon's have biological bodies, but they are referred to by their Dungeons & Dragons rivals because children have no other information about these creatures. To be honest, it’s not really solid science, it’s said to have complete control over the mind flare upside down.
Right, so the Upside Down entered by the characters is remarkably similar to Hawkins, except it’s covered in a strange balloon and glowing evil. This is confirmed by the fact that Will finds his little shop there, where he hides from Demogorgons and other beasts that probably haunt the land. Also, most people are taken to a Demogorgon “nest” in the Upside Down, which is nothing more than the Hawkins Public Library. Does this mean that every place on earth has a mucus-covered reflection? Or is it just Hawkins? Anyway, why does everything bad happen to that poor town?
Eleven breaks into the Upside Down by total accident, opening a “Door” that allows the Mind Flayer to begin its manipulative schemes. For all intents and purposes, it seems that the antagonist wants to take control of the entire world, but why? What will he gain by doing it? Does he run around capturing innocent dimensions and turning them into habitats for his minions? This answer clashes with the nature of the Upside Down itself because it implies that there are no others available for the invasion. More importantly, has the Mind Flayer fully absorbed its own dimension?
Sound travels through the Upside Down, which is not shocking because it has some kind of atmosphere that allows air vibrations. But how is it possible for the sound, specifically the wailing cries of lost children trapped in a mirror dimension, to be transmitted to Hawkins, specifically the aforementioned lost boy’s house? It also works in reverse, as Will can hear the sound of his mother’s voice when they are separated. This could be some kind of portal magic because Nancy and Jonathan converse through interdimensional space while near one of the smaller “doors”, but something is off.
