so ive been thinking about the paradoxes i've noticed...people telling people what to tell the first person...you dig? locke telling richard to tell locke how to get back to the island. daniel telling desmond to tell daniel the proper setting for his machine to send minds ahead in time.charlotte telling daniel what daniel said to charlotte about leaving the island before the incident so he can say that to her. so where does the info originate? especially in the case of daniels settings for the machine. if daniel knows the setting in the present because desmond came back and told him, when does he actually figure this out?
