i dont know how many of you have learned about two philosophers from the Enlightenment, but today in history class we were going over them, Thomas Hobbes and John Locke. John Locke was the philosopher who John Locke of LOST is named after. Anyway, we start talking about the fact that Hobbes always saw the bad parts about humanity, while Locke saw the best of humanity. I'm guessing that since Damon/Carlton know about the history of John Locke, then this could be how they came up with Jacob seeing the best parts of humanity, while MIB sees the worst. Maybe weve been getting it all wrong. What if it's Hobbes, instead of Esau? Also, does anyone know anything interesting about Hobbes that could have to do with LOST?
