Paradise Lost
« on: May 15, 2009, 03:09:35 PM »
Paradise Lost / Biblical

Adam & Eve : God creates Man / Adam and gives him free will, knowing that Man will fall. He succeeds in bringing about the fall of Adam and Eve but is punished for the act. Adam eats the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge because he cannot bear losing Eve. ----> Sounds alot like Jack and his "decisions" and his despair for potentially losing Kate.

Satan : Before his rebellion, he was known as Lucifer and was second only to God. His envy of the Son creates Sin, and in an incestuous relationship with his daughter, he produces the offspring, Death. His rebellion is easily crushed by the Son, and he is cast into Hell. His goal is to corrupt God's new creations, Man and Earth. He succeeds in bringing about the fall of Adam and Eve but is punished for the act. He can shift his shape and tempts Eve in the form of a serpent. He appears noble to Man but not in comparison to God. ----> hmmm. Ben and his daughter, Ben and his complex of being second, and / or black shirt and his conflict with Jacob, and mention of the shape shifter ie faux locke....

God : The omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent creator of the universe. He is depicted as pure light by Milton and rules from an unmovable throne at the highest point in Heaven. God is the epitome of reason and intellect, qualities that often make him seem aloof and stern in the poem. His more merciful side is shown through his Son who is of course one of the Trinitarian aspects of God though not the same as God. God creates Man (Adam) and gives him free will, knowing that Man will fall. He also provides his Son, who becomes a man and suffers death, as the means to salvation for Man so that ultimately goodness will completely defeat evil. ----> again, more similarities, free will, man failing, the conversation between jacob and black shirt / esau, and... "pure light" is what we saw when the fail safe was turned, when the bomb detonated, when they time jumped.

well actually, paradise lost ripped off the bible in a fictionalized sensationalized sort of way, they say they had the whole story mapped out from the beginning, and they DID call it lost.... TPTB have a Milton-complex?  :)
