    when I was watching I thought that maybe the reason that some people worship it is because they were suicidal in the first place, so the "monster" had the opposite effect. people who weren't suicidal initially would kill themselves, but the people from the mental institution wouldn't, and maybe they genuinely thought it would help the others stop being suicidal (like it did for them).

    If your theory of Lovecraftian horror holds any weight, then I might suggest a thought: the reasoning these creatures are manipulating these people by using the likeness of the dead is because they are engaging with people's memories and their psyches. I'm no expert on Lovecraft but I'm pretty positive that those stories had similar things happen and that also leads to how people who are insane or differently abled mentally are able to manage these manipulations, because they've already engaged with their darkest psychosis.

    Bird box become a moral for Islamic people as I heard which is "Don't ever see a bad thing when you're alive. If you do see it, you'll be thrown into hell". That's the moral of the story

    I still think it is a Lovecraftian alien, one of the lesser ones, that is just toying with humanity because it is bored. That is what I thought from the get go. Sure, Cthulhu is an adult and not outside with his magnifying glass burring ants but lesser 'Old Ones' might find that entertaining. It would also fit because the 'adult' Old Ones probably know what he's doing but they just don't care, just like if you saw a kid stomping on ants, who cares.

    This way it could be both inspired and original. The rapture doesn't make sense because God would never use evil people for his purposes. He would find someone worth to be a prophet. Also, suicide is a sin so he wouldn't use it to get people to come to him.

    Personally, (from what I could bear to watch) I thought bird box was about depression. A lot of people don't believe depression exists/ is a valid mental illness unless they have it themselves. Which goes with the whole "take off your blindfold and see for yourself" theme.

    Matpat says Bird box is a copy of A Quiet Place, but it looks more like The Happening. Also I feel Surgat is the better choice for the monster because he opens doors of depression in our minds that's is so deep it forces people to want to kill themselves. He also opens the nostalgia doors of our minds which is why people see dead relatives.

    A point Matt missed is if animals can see the creature? because the birds aren't affected by it yet they react to it? the only real animal we see is the horse on the television. Maybe that'll help pinpoint a better suited lore.

    Your research and dedication is commendable, and I enjoy seeing others opinions on popular topics. I really liked yours as you kept circulating back to one point to further your theory. However believable and in depth theories are, people will still have other opinions, I also have a different view on the monster. You believe the monster is a physical being that has some form of soul or purpose. My idea is that the monster is a mental being rather than physical, the people who see the monster won’t see the same as anyone else, everyone sees something different. The monster isn’t “there” but rather in your mind, that’s how the monster gets it’s power to be able to make people kill themselves, it finds who you know and what you’ve seen to eventually finds a way that manipulate you to kill yourself. It drives its method by working out your personality, for instance Olympia, a person who looks for the best in everyone, is sweet and non judgemental states that the monster is “not so bad” . In this case the monster found someone or something to fuel Olympia’s imagination but also looked into her personality and mannerisms to give the monster a structure or figure that would appear in her mind but not in the real world, while using her kind nature to create some form of foundation, it also could have bad or sad memories weaved into its “being” so it is powerful enough to tip her over the edge. Another character that we have some knowledge on that sees the monster is Malorie’s sister, Jess, who says “ omg what the f*ck is that?” When she saw the monster. Later on Malorie states that Jess never got upset or scared easily. So the monster created a being using her memories and intertwined it with a threatening and unknown-of identity to possibly throw Jess off and eventually drive her to kill herself considering it would be more complicated to find something sad or scary that would drive her to do the same, which seems to be its go-to method, showing a dead relative or worst fear / memory, generally sad or scary things. But that is just my personal idea when it comes to the monster , this is in no way true, and I am not stating that yours is wrong, I just wanted to share my opinion.
