Miles: son of Candelwick?
« on: January 22, 2009, 02:12:26 PM »
This idea (I can't take credit for it) has been thrown around and I think it needs it's own thread.

I think Miles is the baby in the opening shot. Weather or not he is biologically related to Candlewick, I am not sure. I think the DR. used the experiments on the island to give Miles his ability to talk to the dead. I also believe that Miles has more powers up his sleeve.

On the fence with this one. I think it would be a cool connection to Candle!

It's an interesting idea, but I don't think there is nearly enough evidence to support this- yet. I do think it's plausible, but for now it's a theory in it's earliest forms.

What about the fact that it was impossible for Babies to be born on the island? Does that mean that Candlewick's baby was born off the island and brought there, or where they able to be born at one time, but the experiments that Dharma conducted screwed something up and then prevented future women from giving birth?

Either, IMO.

LOL.  I think he can just "sense" the presence of dead things, right?  And sense how/when they died?  That's how he knew there was a dead boar laying out there and it was OK to eat because it had only been dead four hours.

It is interesting to wonder what killed it, though.  Wonder if it had a nosebleed?

& who cares if it's only a few hours old.  Isn't it more important to know HOW it died?  lol  


It's full of disease, but DON'T WORRY- it's still fresh. :-\ ::)

I think Miles is his son, but I think that whatever the "incident" was may have been what gave Miles his ability. Who was it that said The D.I. were experimenting with the Paranormal??

Maybe Miles got his abilities similar to how Desmond got to see the future.

The Swan orientation film cites "parapsychology" as one of the fields that the DI studies.

That's what I'm remembering. PL with the save again, thank you. Yeah, so if they were already messing around with paranormal psychology, then perhaps that's what happened. The energy released, and affected baby miles.
