My Childhood's End fan theory
Here's my fan theory, which I came up with right after I finished the book (as a teenager).

It mentions in the book that if it weren't for the Overlords, humans would have ended up like the Overlords.

So basically, the evil Overlords destroyed Mankind to eliminate the competition.

The Overmind is some sort of alien mind eater of no particular moral character that was manipulated by the Overlords. The mystical shit about the Overmind was just the Overlords' diabolical propaganda to ruin us, which succeeded.

Devils indeed.

This theory enabled me to preserve my view of Clarke as a "hard science" type.

Nonsense is nonsense, but the history of nonsense is a very important science.

Howdy howdy ho Abdul. SyFy did an excellent rendering of Childhood's End.

There is only one really serious philosophical question, and that is suicide. -Camus
