and every other character in the game is one of his personalities. They all have the same voice effects when they get hit, they all look the same, plus the achievement for unlocking maggy is "Maggy's Wig". Plus the main character suffering from a mental illness fits the game pretty well I think.

I think it's sort of being over-analytic, but it's still very plausible.

I thought as much once he found Judas' fez in the chest. Kinda like he just wears it. Also, when getting the Peeper, Cain's eye still pops out, so yet again it's just a matter of dress-up. :3

I love the interpretation this game can have~

In that case Samson would be Isaac's pent up rage against everything, bloody lust making you stronger the more you kill enemies.

Even the wiki shows that all the characters except for (possibly) ??? are just Isaac wearing an accessory. It's a known fact. We even have items like Maggy's Wig and Cain's Eyepatch...

Also the familiars Sister Maggy is red and shoots red tears - possibly hinting that she died with Brother Bobby being a floating dead familiar - possibly meaning he died at birth or was a miscarriage since nothing is mentioned about a brother.

Some Formspring answers from Edmund point to this:
Q:Is the blue baby Isaac?
A:all the characters in the game are isaac

Q: Tricky question: you said that Isaac can’t be saved, yet does it also mean that Eve, Maggy, Judas, Cain AND ??? is doomed too ? No doubts that Isaac ATM is weakest personality of whole company and could be easily replaced with his more sinister alts...
A: Isaac is the shell, if the shell dies then everything inside goes with it.


I wrote some fiction on the topic before WotL came out; Edmund linked it on his Twitter back when he had it. It's here if anyone cares: http://overanalyzingisaac.blogspot.com/
