The fellow in the taxi was not Jacob. It was Faraday, the character that could be Transcendent (e.g. God): outside of time-space, beyond the material universe, present before the alpha and after the omega.
Or he may be immanent: separate from creation. Mary is immanent because she has no stain of original sin and did not sin in her life. In LOST, FARADAY, WALT, HUGO, DESMOND are likely immanent.

At least they found someone unexpected to lead the characters: anti-social, misanthropic, whoring, abusive drunk. Gives me hope.--Past recaptured 20:08, July 23, 2010 (UTC)Read more >
