Hey, everyone. These are STRICTLY THEORIES.
Now, I just thought of something completely random after reading another blog: What if Jacob and the MiB were one in the same?
I've never thought that was true, however, think about it. Maybe they're two different entities, but they're trapped inside the island and they're really the same person. Now, I know this is confusing, but if you understand me then you know what I'm talking about. There are "rules" or whatever, to how they were separated from a singular man---one the good part, and one the evil part---and now the evil side is trying to kill the good side. The evil part must find a loophole in killing his other half, because, in a way, it's a part of him. So he must manipulate other people in doing it, since he can't do it himself. (i.e. Ben Linus, Richard Alpert, etc.)
Now, this is just a theory, but it's pretty possible, I think. It would---in a way, and if you're looking at it the same way I am---explain some of the questions, especially having to do with why the evil thing [MiB] is trapped, blah, blah, blah.
Anyway, if this was true, it still leaves the one question: How were they separated from each other, or why? And so on. I think I was going off of something in the beginning, but now I'm a little lost myself, so ... yeah.
