According to the concept of TzadikimNistarim, there are 36 righteous souls who keep the world from being destroyed by God just by existing. So when one of them got killed off, God came up with a particularly cruel punishment for the Earth by shutting down the power worldwide. Now that group of individuals is struggling to stay alive, as well as get the number back up to 36 in the hopes that God will reverse the punishment.

[[WMG:Physical contact causes SensoryOverload for Jake.]]
He's in-tuned with the universe, and has an empathic link to every human. Being touched sharpens the link for the person making the contact, but in doing so ''every'' detail of the individual comes screaming at Jake. You would freak out too.

So far, only the 36 (well two of them) righteous ones can access it. By there nature of being righteous, the 36 are possibly pure enough that they would not be barred from it.

There's most likely a reason why it was staged as an offscreen DisneyDeath. It's not unreasonable to suggest that [[spoiler:Lucy]] is being held in a secret [=AsterCorps=] facility somewhere (which may or may not be the Teller Institute.)

[[WMG: [[spoiler:Lucy]] isn't dead.]]
There has to be a reason why this scene only "showed" an offscreen DisneyDeath. It's not unreasonable to think AsterCorps might be holding [[spoiler:her]] in some secret facility (which may or may not be the Teller Institute.)

In season 2's premiere, Jake declares that his mutism is about to end soon, so my guess is he'll start talking as soon as his 13 years of life come.

[[WMG: The "36" start talking when they turn 13.]]
As long as we know, Jake's the youngest of the "36" and he has being alive for 12 years. Amelia is 14 but the videos (I think) are from a year ago. Also older "36" talk normally and had joined into society quite well.

In season 2's premiere, Jake declares that his mutism is about to end soon, so my guess is he'll start talking as soon as his 13 years of life come.

* I don't buy this one. [[spoiler:Amelia's voice [[InformedAttribute sounds nothing like the narration at all]].]]



* His opening and closing monologues clearly demonstrate a high level of intelligence and he speaks in them. I posit that he actually is capable of speaking, but doesn't do so because he hasn't come up with any way to verbally communicate what he sees. (Or perhaps is simply aware that if he were to tell people "I can predict the future", they would think he was insane. Given his obssession with the numbers and patterns, it's likely that he doesn't consider anything else worth communicating about, so he simply doesn't talk.
** This is made more likely in the season 1 finale: [[spoiler:Video is discovered of Amelia, the young girl Teller was working with before. It appears at first that she can't speak, until she does; at which point Teller asks her why she hasn't spoken before, to which she replies "Unneccesary. An evolutionary speed-bump."]]

* They've appeared in three consecutive episodes so far. No way is that a coincidence.
** It's possible that they, along with other throw-away lines, references, and events through the show will figure into some [[GrandFinale grand season finale]].
*** {{Jossed}} for the Season 1 finale. It may still come true later though.

* In school, Teller was really into math and sci-fi. Rather than become a writer or a mathematician, he slowly descended into obsessive madness. The series is his hallucination.
** Probably {{Jossed}}, considering [[spoiler:he's now dead.]]

* Amelia was its first victim, and now [[spoiler:Teller's bit the bucket too]]. Its influence on a mortal manifests itself as brain damage - hence why Teller's enlightenment was treated as an aneurysm, and Jake has an AmbiguousDisorder in-universe.

Abraham also states that the "36 righteous ones" are those who make small changes to alleviate the suffering of the universe. But oddly enough, his explanation in Music of the Spheres doesn't talk about Jake's mutism or numbers, so people who are "36" might not necessarily need to have mutism or see numbers the way Jake does, but simply be characters who do good to everyone around them.

* Abraham, maybe. We've only seen him help Martin, Clea, and his cousin, but Jake wasn't afraid to touch him, so that has to count for something.

Added DiffLines:

And don't forget the people Guillermo's been killing starting in Season 2 - the composer-turned-baker in Brussels, the architect in Barcelona, Claudia the astronomer in Santiago four years earlier. And Jake's one of the many people on Guillermo's death list.
