To Be On The List, You Had To Be Changed By The Island!
« on: March 22, 2007, 04:52:18 PM »
The situation is a default if you are a kid.  When Mikail explains why some are not on the list, he identifies each persons defects of character, and we as viewers understand that the island experience has not changed them.

Locke is facinating because, although he is experiencing the effects of the island, he retains his anger and is therefore not allowed on the list.

Jack, when asked by Ben to fix him, is told that what is important is that he wants to fix him.  Again, Jack's past defect is that he did not want to accept the role as leader/healer the has been handed him.

It is my belief that the list affords you the right to use the Magic Box and that the box allows you to experience anything (except the alteration of your past) as outlined in the Grand Unifying Theory that I posted.
