Disturbing Lego theory is making people rethink how their houses are built
| Last updated
Lego offers the opportunity to make just about anything out of those tiny little plastic pieces.
From flower bouquets and aircrafts to helmets and cultural landmarks - there's seemingly nothing that one can't create with Lego.
All in all, it's some harmless fun.
However, one theory about what Lego houses are made of has started to really disturb some people.
With an ethos to 'inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow', Lego has long-since been a vital part of many peoples' childhoods.
But this theory, which was posted Reddit page, r/Showerthoughts, has really made some people have a serious look at those fond memories.
Described as a 'subreddit for sharing those miniature epiphanies you have that highlight the oddities within the familiar', it's very clear that this Lego theory is definitely odd.
The thread is simply captioned: "Lego people live in houses made out of their flesh."
Very straight to the point.
Considering that both Lego characters and Lego houses are made out of the same component, it does appear that anyone in the Lego-verse effectively lives in homes made out of the same stuff as they are.
In short, the theory is that Lego people living in Lego houses is akin to humans living in homes made out of their own matter.
Not very appealing for a prospective house-hunter.
Some even theorised about what the interior would look like in real-life, namely imagining a 'flesh door', which is pretty gross.
While others flipped the entire concept on its head.
One user commented: "Or their flesh is made of house! Eh?!"
Echoing the bizarre thought, a second added: "Is the house made of flesh or is he made of house?"
"I mean," another posed, "We’re made of molecules and so are our houses."
And a fourth asked: "Aren’t we all just made of dust?"
Some drew up some comparisons with other house inhabitants who are seemingly made up of the same matter as their abode.
One Reddit user brought up how a 'gingerbread house' also functions on a similar idea.
However, on a separate Quora thread, one person was quick to put the theories to bed.
While acknowledging that the theory was somehow both 'patently absurd' and 'entirely valid,' this Lego aficionado made some interesting points.
"Within the context of the Lego world," they explained, "nothing exists that is not Lego.
"Much like in reality, nothing exists that is not made of molecules and atoms.
"You’re basically arguing that because we’re made of molecules and so are our houses, we’re living in houses made of human.
"It’s all just so many protons, neutrons and electrons when you really get down to it."
