Well, we've heard mention of Hell--whether Jacob intended that to mean the MIB or not, I'm not sure. But since Hurley via Isabella said that they'd all go to Hell if the MIB is not stopped I take it to mean that being overcome with him, i.e. Sayid and Claire, is Hell.
There's no mention of Heaven, but maybe just not being overwrought with malevolence is Heaven, in a sense. Yet, Jacob was puzzled over whether people tended toward good or evil so can assume that he's missing some overall info. But who/what is he (and the MIB?)--and what are humans for that matter, that they contain this mystery?
Anyway, my intention for this blog was to question the wandering dead people. If Hell is blocked up then maybe Heaven is, too, and no one can venture …Read more >
Dr. Pierre Chang says in the Swan orientation video that an incident occurs, and with the S5 finale titled "The Incident", I would think that whatever occurred with the bomb was what he was referring to.
Why wouldn't the bomb have caused more damage? Well, maybe it did, but I can't think of anything in particular.
Richard Alpert told Sun that he watched them die. Whether he meant that literally or just that he was nearby when the incident happened and realized that their bodies had vanished is hard to say. Because if it was just (likely) speculation on his part then he was obviously wrong since they time traveled. I suppose he could have been talking about something else? But what could that possibly be? People are very mysterious on LOST an…Read more >
Is it a loop? Daniel Faraday crying in Season 5 suggests that. Something hidden in subconscious terrain. Dark Tower? Makes sense so far as something mind boggling like that is able. Why can Hurley see dead people? Things are out of bounds--supernatural play. Mix of religions and mythology, etc? A straight rip-off or entirely new? So many questions. Good and evil seems obvious...but what is good and what is evil? Isn't that all relative...to each person or entity? Don't people/things who want what most would deem bad only want it because to them it is good--like reaching the good through a skewed method? I think C.S. Lewis said something like that. And hey, C.S. Lewis is referenced with Charlotte. Lots of renowned thinkers are referenced fo…Read more >
I'm sure this has been posted before, but I'm not gonna dig around for it. It surprises me that Ben and Richard are so adamant in their doubt that people cannot come back to life... or maybe I just find it humorous. Because Jacob does seem to resurrect Locke when he falls out of the window. So yeah, maybe Locke is dead now, but he was revived once. I just find it curious. Like...everything else on LOST.Read more >
