A 19th century English philosopher who was a utilitarian.  As well, he developed the idea of a panopticon, a prison like struture where the prisoners could be watched but not know whether or not they were being lost, thus providing some type of omnicient presence...kind of like the hatches...

Ben?

They'd be suitably surprised and doubtful if Ben were to commit suicide.

See I'm going to say that Jeremy Bentham is Jacob.  He could have taken over Locke morphed into him.  Locke is dead but Jacob took his soul.

Why would Walt say that Jeremy can to see him instead of Locke??  Is this part of the coverup and Walt knew he couldn't say Locke's name?

Nevermind, I think I answered my own question
