Could the "loophole" used by the Nemesis be his ability to use Locke's likeness despite the fact that his body was NOT used? Do we assume that every time a dead person is used it's via the "undead" theory, the person dies but since he/she is not buried can be used by the island gods to appear to others and cause some form of manipulation. Do we assume that they actually USE the bodies or only the likeness of the bodies?
If so, what is the big deal about Locke actually being dead. We knew he was killed when Ben strangled him so we must assume that the Nemesis was NOT using his body but only his likeness to convince Ben and others to follow him.

The first time with just the DI and no Losties there and now that the Losties travelled back in time they are in 1974 for the FIRST time.
This is how I'm understanding what's happening, am I wrong?Read more >
