I was thinking today at work about lost like I normally do. Now if Ben is actually on the island during dharma now, he might eventually be in contact with his younger self. If he does and convinces his young self that he is the older version of himself, he can tell him of important events in the future, as well as the fact that he is alive at an older age (and thus can not die). This would explain a lot of Ben's personality we have seen thus far. Like the fact that he "always has a plan" and that he always seems calm and confident in all situations as well as the fact that he doesn't seem to fear death. Any thoughts?
