The Dharma Lamp Post Station's Foucault pendulum seen in season 5 episode, 316 (used to find the Island), is much more than just a cool looking prop. There is actually some solid and compelling scientific thinking behind it.
Here I will touch on the science of why the movement of the pendulum was such a clever inclusion. When I first saw how they were finding the Island (through the use of a pendulum and Earth's own gravity), I thought it was brilliant. The swinging of the pendulum looks random but it is anything but. The actual plane of swing rotates relative to the Earth.
A layman's translation of this is that over a period of time, a random looking swing of the pendulum actually undergoes a mathematically predictable motion in relation to …

This is my tribute video for the 10th Anniversary of LOST - without exception the best TV show & story ever told.
I felt this track (in particular, the lyrics) worked really well with footage from the show. It's as if this song (by Australian artist, Tina Arena) was written for LOST.
The lyrics are a perfect description of the opportunity provided to all who came to the Island.
- Reset All
- Never thought it would be like this
- It all fell down in pieces
- Ripping those puzzles apart
- Surviving on broken hearts
- We were young and we didn't know
- The kaleidoscope lost its colour
- It all turned into grey
- We started moving in separate ways
- I've been holding on
- Just to let go
- Turn a blind eye not sure I wanna know
- Clear the slate, go …

As the 10th anniversary of LOST is upon us, thought I'd share with everyone this excellent new book about the show, written from the perspective of fans.

Recapture the magic of television's LOST through the eyes of its devoted fan base. "Losties" from all around the globe recount their favorite moments and discuss the show's themes and mysteries through the lens of their own lives. It's time to go back to the Island once more.

It is one of Lost's most asked questions, and the one it seems so few know the answer to.
It became a topic on social media in 2012 with Damon Lindelof attempting to 'bribe' US Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney with the answer if he discloses his tax return figures. Lindelof even teased us more recently at the Paleyfest LOST 10 Year Reunion in March 2014, refusing to give a specific answer;
Well, if you're reading this, you won't have to wait till then as the answer is on this page. I've long been a proponent of the notion that most every question on LOST was answered. There are very few truly unanswered questions. It is true that some answers require some research, or extrapolation/interpretation from a number of sources, but the vast majo…

It only ends once... Three years ago today, Jack Shephard closed his eyes for the very last time in what I think was the most perfect finale in television history.
So to the writers, actors, producers, musicians and crew that made this extraordinary masterpiece possible, I am forever in your debt. But to the LOST community who I would be lost without, thank you for making my ongoing journey even more meaningful by keeping the Lost flame alive.
One of (the many) great things about living in Australia is that when the big Lost dates come round, they last two days. Like right now - it's been May 23 for almost 40 hours. It's actually the 24th here but still feels like yesterday because the US is just experiencing the evening of the 23rd.
