LOST: For dummies
« on: May 24, 2010, 02:19:33 PM »
Disclaimer. Not Calling any particular person on here a dummy. Just venting.

The Island is a real place with a real Purpose.

Dharma was really there. Dharma made possible the side effect that allowed Desmond to make MiB vulnerable.

The Island never let anyone have babies to keep Societies from building up.

815 Crashed on the island.

There were 42 Survivors.

Relationships were formed.

They made their way off the island and were brought back because they had a purpose there.

The purpose turns out to be replacing Jacob and protecting the Light on the island.

Jack steps up and takes the job. Replaces Jacob.

Final battle with MiB. Defeated and Light replaced by a self sacrificial move by Jack.

Jack makes Hurley the new protector.

Hurley selects Ben as his assistant.

Jack dies.

A good amount of the survivors of 815 start their afterlife, beginning their jouney where their lives converged. On Flight 815.

They Land and go about the lives they have constructed in order to redeem themselves from their former lives. (Kate wrongfully accused, Sawyer a cop, Jack a good dad)

Near death experiences in the ALT seem to trigger memories from the island.

Desmond is Awakened, and gains realization in both timelines.

Desmond starts gathering all the people who had strong connections to each other on the Island to prepare them to cross over.

Once they gain realization of their own deaths they all meet at the Church where Jack was going to bury his father.

Jack gains realization after touching his father's coffin. He goes in to join all of the people he grew connected to over his time on the island.

They all cross over together.

-fin-

This is the chain of events that makes up the core story behind the show. Just for those people that are still confused about whether anyone survived or not.

when did everyone else die?  when did they begin the afterlife?  What caused them to die?

some before Jack, some after Jack.
The afterlife is timeless, they all met at that place, not time.
Some of them you saw die. The ones that died after Jack, could be anything, including old-age.

Seriously??

We saw all but a handful of deaths on the island.

Hurley Lost 170 pounds and was killed by a new alien race that crashed on the island in 3034 AD. He passed the torch to Klechmar. Ben was relieved of his duty when new management came in.

Kate died from a car accident ten years after the AJIRA flight made it home. She had been living with her new husband Richard. And was texting while driving.

Ben Died of old age.

Penny died of a bungee jumping accident in cancun.

Desmond lit himself on fire as a political statement.


All that can be read quicker by saying, "Doesn't really matter. What matters is how they lived."

This also goes for all the unanswered questions that anyone may have. What matters is how they lived and not the little stuff along the way.

There is no time outside of the time we've constructed for ourselves.
