Are you ready for all the symbolism in Taylor Swift's newest music video? 

As fans take in the Grammy winner's newest visual for her single, "...Ready for It?" it comes as no surprise that there are just as many messages, symbols and touches of shade hidden in the songstress' Blade Runner-esque animatronic creation. Spearheaded by her music video compadre, director Joseph Kahn, the star gets the twin treatment as one version of herself descends on an underground lair where a second version is being kept locked in a glass box.

Soon, the narrative is clear—the true Taylor is fighting to get out while the other Taylor, a false replicant, is fighting to keep her under control. Similarly to her first music video, "Look What You Made Me Do," Swift addresses false depictions of herself and, in this case, how they have stifled her to that point that she feels, well, boxed in. 

Time to break out those magnifying glasses—here are all the symbols we spotted:
