So is The OA inspired by actual events?

The OA?”
“Yeah… Neflix’s new hit show… The OA”
“OA for ‘Original Angel’… like OG ‘Original Gangsta’ I think… but an angel”
“Sounds interesting”
“Yeah it is.. I had absolutely no flying fuck of an idea what the fuck was actually going on in the show… that was until a giant pervey  Korean psychic Octopus showed up, then it all started to make complete sense!”

“I think all the psychedelic twats on the West Coast are pretending it’s all deep and meaningful, some people dare compare it to the amazing The Leftovers… just stick with American Gods!”

Paul the Octopus (RIP) – Wikipedia

Paul the Octopus (26 January 2008[1] – 26 October 2010) was a common octopus used to predict the results of association football matches. Accurate predictions in the 2010 World Cup brought him worldwide attention as an animal oracle.
During divinations, Paul’s keepers would present him with two boxes containing food. The boxes were identical except that they were decorated with the different team flags of the competitors in an upcoming football match. Whichever box Paul ate from first was considered his prediction for which team would win the match.
His keepers at the Sea Life Centre in Oberhausen, Germany, mainly tasked him with predicting the outcomes of international matches in which the German national football team was playing. Paul correctly chose the winning team in four of Germany’s six Euro 2008 matches, and all seven of their matches in the 2010 World Cup—including Germany’s third place play-off win over Uruguay on 10 July. He also correctly chose Spain as the winner of the 2010 FIFA World Cup final. [2] In all, Paul amassed an overall record of 12 correct predictions out of 14: a success rate of approximately 85.7%.
