Title: The Great Leg with 4 toes
Post by: reminQo on May 26, 2006, 12:50:21 PM
What do you think about it, i mean , i thought that all the story is just about science or perhaps something supernatural (blach smoke), but it seems like a part of a big colossus....like was on Rhodos, do you have any idea ...

Hi reminQo!  Welcome to SWLS.  I think it's a good topic, one I'm curious about, at any rate, but hope you don't mind, I changed the title to "4 toes" so people don't get confused.

Check the Investigations section, also, because sledge and I found a good reference to an old Peacock novel about a statue with 4 toes.  I don't know if its an allusion to that.

I agree that it makes you think the Colossus of Rhodes.  Other random imagery it brings up, include Atlantis and even Planet of the Apes.  I personally think they are trying to suggest an ancient civilization which had evolved to be a little different from modern humans.  But you could go a million different ways on it.  I think it was one of the most striking scenes in the finale, now that we're introduced to another island mystery.

I was so intrigued by that one little scene.  Part of a statue with only 4 toes.  I immediately thought "Atlantis", but the island is in the South Pacific, far away from any Atlantis mythology at all.

Post by: sam_i_am on May 26, 2006, 06:09:04 PM
Does anyone think this statue has anything to do with "Adam & Eve"? An as far as the four toes go, my guess is that "4" is one of "the numbers".

"lemuria "  it says something ???? search with google...

If not mistake "lemurians"  they had four toes...

Same thing came to my mind.

Wow Jason... that Lemuria link is fascinating.  I googled it and found some very interesting connections as well, it's like the Pacific counterpart to Atlantis.  I didn't read anything about 4 toes, though... just rumors of 3 toed horses. 

Nice find!

digit on your keyboard

alt + 4815162342  =   µ   <--- Mu (uppercase Μ, lowercase μ) is the 12th letter of the Greek alphabet

Mu is the name of a supposed ancient advanced civilization that existed 78,000 years ago in the Southern Pacific. It lasted many thousands of years and eventually was sunk by large earthquakes. They were, of course, well advanced beyond our current civilization and may well have been populated by aliens. Written about at length by James Churchward in his series of five books written in the 1920's and 30's.
Sometimes considered to be the same as Lemuria.

BIG coincidence or...  :o :o

LOL, Jason, are you replying to yourself now??  I don't think you needed to be the one to pat yourself on the back... cuz I would have done it for you.  NICE FIND!  :)

But where do you get the alt + 4815162342  =   µ  stuff?  Is that the full code for the greek letter in ASCII or something?  (not that I know a lot about ASCII)

Just curious... if that's a real tie-in, then thats HUGE.

About the whole Lemuria-thing..I found a link about that:http://www.crystalinks.com/lemuria.html (http://www.crystalinks.com/lemuria.html)
And I don´t know much about symbols and stuff. But I just thought that one of the images were a little bit similar to Hanso Foundation..only upside down or something.
Title: Re: The Great Leg with 4 toes
Post by: sam_i_am on May 27, 2006, 12:56:49 PM
Wow, that's a great find. It looks just like the Hanso symbol. But I really can't see this leuminara thing tieing in. Does any one else have more info on these guys? Maybe something to do with Adam & Eve or the black and white stones or something (I've been waiting for some info on those stones and  it's like they've just forgotten about them...)

Actually, anything followed by 15162342 = µ in Windows alt codes.  µ is also representative of magnetic permeability, apparently.  I like this find though, good one!

According to the ABC podcast, the statue doesnt rele mean anything.

Post by: Warren on May 27, 2006, 02:18:21 PM
I really can't belive that they would have taken the time to 1) make a statue with only 4 toes.  2) point it out so blatently, even if only for a few minutes.  and 3) not have a plan to include it somewhere in the future.

The official podcasts don't always tell us everything.
Title: Re: The Great Leg with 4 toes

No the producers said they wee going to explore more about the archaeology adn who was o the island beforeDharma.This opens up a whole new world of possibilites.I'm working on one now but will take awhile to post it.
Title: Re: The Great Leg with 4 toes
Post by: AmazonMonkey on May 27, 2006, 07:52:24 PM

The statue mos likely predates the Black Rock, so we have a lot of timeline to fill. 
Title: Re: The Great Leg with 4 toes
Post by: Geronimo Jackson on May 27, 2006, 08:14:07 PM
Yes a lot of time  :) :)and still need to know how a Nigerian slave ship ended up on the island(Nigerian beehcraft too by a hundred years later).

Post by: jugdish on May 28, 2006, 03:06:14 AM
The mysteries of the island are not all related to dharma. There is history there before those guys turned it into craphole island. The rectangle rock structure and 4 toe leg are from earlier inhabatints on the island

^^  I agree with this.  Also, I did listen to the podcast, and I got the impression from listening to it that it DID have meaning to the story (I don't recall them saying anything about it not being important).  What they were trying to communicate was pretty much what jugdish was saying... that there are ancient secrets to the island that predate DHARMA.  Much as Adam & Eve and the Black Rock seem to suggest.  Damon & Carlton were just doing it in their usual glib way of joking around, but I agree that they did this for a very intentional reason they will get into in later seasons.  They said in the podcast that they only had 17 days to shoot everything, including build and film the big foot sequence and ALL the other scenes, so I dont think they would have taken this much time out of their schedules over something totally insignificant.  And yes, the fact that Sayid has specific dialogue about the foot ("I don't know what's more disquieting...") also puts an exclamation point on the fact that they wanted us to notice this element.

I'm new to this site, and I thought that something I brought up in the "Hollow Earth" thread might be of interest in this thread.  The very popular "Reptilian" theory of people like David Icke holds that Reptilians have four toes.  Could it be that our writers are playing around with this wackiness?  It would certainly make for an entertaining way to have the Others really be "other" -- if they were Reptilian shape-shifting aliens bent on domination of us humans!  Just because it's nonsense doesn't mean it can't be fun!

Post by: stillhaventfound on May 31, 2006, 03:13:53 PM
I also posted this in the Investigations comments for 2x23: Giant Four-Toe Foot, but thought this would be a good place for it also:

I remember from high school one of my teachers talking about evolution and that the speculation about the "next evolution of man" would be to lose the fifth toe.  I know it sounds ridiculous, but I did look it up and found this Clickie

This guy obviously likes to make himself sound smart with lots of big words, etc., but now to my point...

Perhaps the statue is either:

1. A marker of the island being previously inhabited by a population of people that had only four toes.

OR MORE INTERESTINGLY:

2. A marker of the island and the Dharma Initiative being an evolutionary experiment.  Dharma is obviously all about symbols, and if they placed the foot/statue there, it must have some meaning for Dharma.

maybe i'm completely offbase, if so, just feel free to add the 4-toed others to the rant page!!!
we should be able to get a better close up in the eko Jin walk through the jungle sequence

Wouldn't Locke, Ana Lucia, Jack and the rest have noticed if Fake Henry only had four toes? He was barefoot while held captive, right? I'm sure they would have noticed his foot missing a toe.

But how as gags in  thier mouths would they comment on it,they never discuss anything anyway.And they never saw the statue.Plus I think they  had a lot on their minds like are we going to die than discussing how many toes he had.

I'm not sure if you were referring to my post, but if so I wasn't talking about Jack, Kate and Sawyer while they were on the dock. I was talking about all the different crash survivors who had one-on-one time with Fhenry while he was being held in the armory. If nothing else, Jack being a doctor would definitely have noticed and commented on it, because we're not talking about a toe that got cut off, we're talking about a foot that never HAD five toes to begin with lol.

If you are not looking for four toes, you may not notice four toes.  Or maybe they were being polite, not to comment on their guests personal deformities.

I think that it would have been pointed out on-camera sooner.  Why spend all that time on prosthetic feet and makeup if no one notices. 

Then again, many of us missed the black swoopy thing...

I personally don't think they would notice, JUST like I think its realistic that they don't talk.   I know I know lots of people totally diagree with me and I respect that I am not trying to change minds... HOWEVER I am entitled to my opinion, and until this board becomes like the dozens of others with disrectfil jerks I will continue to feel comforteable saying how I really feel.   I can honestly say... who on earth was looking at his feet?  They were trying to get him to talk not give him a pedicure.   You think Jack hasn't seen thoudands of deformations?  Why would he say "Oh my god he has four toes... he is a lizard man Other leader not Henry Gale... He MUST be lying... lets kill him now because he has four toes... four toes man; you... neener neener... what? Don't call me a bobble head, you creepy grin freaky eyes Other guy, that right, I got you pegged..."

I watched the dock scene last night, slowed motioned it all and I never got a great picture but it always looked like 5 toes to me. I concentrated on Fenry and i am confident there were 5 toes. I can not say 100% because it was always a little blurry from motion.

i did the same thing when i got home last night.  i saw that the "others" had 5 toes, but on Fenry I felt it was a little blurry too.  I have decided that the 4 toe theory is off.  If he had 4 toes I think we would have got a clear shot of his 4 toes, even if for a brief second.

If the writers of Lost insist on telling us that Fhenry could be in their control for two weeks barefoot and not a damn single one of the survivors EVER noticed his foot only has four toes on it by nature, then they'll lose all credibility and so will the show. There was even a time when Fhenry was tied down after trying to strangle Ana Lucia, and his hands were tied down near his feet! Who the hell is gonna tie down this guy's hands right near his bare feet, and NOT notice something like that? Yeah, I know, they're all blind & deaf mutes, I get it now.

i noticed that too, so my question is, if he HAS shoes, and clothes that are not so ragged, WHY is he barefoot and looking like a neanderthal man at the pier???  I'm wondering if he really is HIM, if he is wouldn't he dress much better?

He was keeping up the pretense, which would explain why he was somewhat pissed that the one guy took off his beard. If Fhenry walks off the boat in a 3-piece suit smoking a cigar, well he's giving away far more to Jack, Kate, Sawyer and Hurley than he may want to. And don't forget Hurley's being let go to return to his camp. Imagine Hurley making it back and saying "Dude! That Fake Henry guy? Total class. He has a bitchin' suit, and cuban cigars. You KNOW there's at least a 7-11 somewhere nearby."

Title: Reference to Hindu creation myth?
Post by: tlambert on June 01, 2006, 05:32:02 PM
Rudrani Shakti, specifically, who had four toes...  an excerpt:

All matter is a relatively stable form of
Energy. It lasts awhile and disappears into Energy. The universe is
maintained awhile. This is Shakti as Vaishnavi, the Maintainer. At
every moment creation, as rejuvenascent molecular activity, is going
on as the Shakti Brahmani. At every moment there is molecular death
and loosening of the forms, the work of Rudrani Shakti. Creation did
not take place only at some past time, nor is dissolution only in
the future. At every moment of time there is both. As it is now and
before us here, so it was 'in the beginning'.


This also appears to tie in with the "black fog", eh?

Is it possible that the folks who created that statue were not around hundreds of years ago, but were actually killed off by the Dharma Initiative?

What about the opposite of that? That the Dharma people were killed off by the four-toed civilization, because afterall, it's "their island", which Zeke made sure to tell Jack earlier this season. Maybe Sawyer was right, they use the fake beards and such as a way of hiding their true identity...lol

Dude - that is interesting, creative and fraught with possibilities for the past of the island.  The loss of unneeded appendages is addressed by Darwinian theories and could be accelerated.  I wonder if the males also lost their nipples?  OK, maybe it is now too late to be online if I am asking questions like that.

Got another theory for you.

There were this group of people in some place in africa who were legendary for only having 2 toes. I beleive it had something to do with canibalism and was due to some disease they ingested when they ate the dead.

Also incest can cause these type of deformities. It could also explain the homely look and 4 toes that some of the others inhabit.... if you go with the whole 'dharma is no longer on the island' theory.

I still think incest or cabalism may in some way be at hand here.

Incest does not normally cause limb deformities. This is a common misconception. Incest is actually how the human race developed. Think about it. Go back to about 20,000 BC. How many available mates were there and how many were related to you in some way? Incest ONLY increases the prevalence of inherited diseases (such as Tay Sachs, Myotonic Dystrophy, etc.). Incest has absolutely NO effect on limb formation or IQ. These are fallacies and old wives tales.

It may seem way off base but I think that it has to do with the rea on the map that is marked with the latin phrase " here be Dragons"

Well, first of all, if you had 4 toes, I bet that person would beat out Ron Jeremy for one of the most watched videos of all time.

It is just showing that the island has a long and varied history. I think it is sending a message that dharma/others were not the first on the island. I believe not all the mysteries are dharma related. Some may come from long ago occupation and are part of the history of the island.

agreed Jug

there is more in play on the island then just Dharma

Producers wanted to add more mytholgoy to what the island was all about.Dharma were not first people on the island.They just didn't stumble across it's elctrical magnetic powers,healing powers etc.Like most discoveries heard stories about it researched it,...perhpas some ancestors still around if believe screen cap on this thread of the ferry landign and only four toes on people.

I also agree with Jug on that point.  Maybe Dharma went to that specific island because of its history

FROM: http://www.unmuseum.org/colrhode.htm

"The statue was one hundred and ten feet high and stood upon a fifty-foot pedestal near the harbor mole. Although the statue has been popularly depicted with its legs spanning the harbor entrance so that ships could pass beneath, it was actually posed in a more traditional Greek manner: nude, wearing a spiked crown, shading its eyes from the rising sun with its right hand, while holding a cloak over its left.

No ancient account mentions the harbor-spanning pose and it seems unlikely the Greeks would have depicted one of their gods in such an awkward manner. In addition, such a pose would mean shutting down the harbor during the construction, something not economically feasible.

The statue was constructed of bronze plates over an iron framework (very similar to the Statue of Liberty which is copper over a steel frame). According to the book of Pilon of Byzantium, 15 tons of bronze were used and 9 tons of iron, though these numbers seem low. The Statue of Liberty, roughly of the same size, weighs 225 tons. The Colossus, which relied on weaker materials, must have weighed at least as much and probably more.

Ancient accounts tell us that inside the statue were several stone columns which acted as the main support. Iron beams were driven into the stone and connected with the bronze outer skin. Each bronze plate had to be carefully cast then hammered into the right shape for its location in the figure, then hoisted into position and riveted to the surrounding plates and the iron frame."

Very interesting, Goober! I thought the part about the weight was intriguing... I think Copper weighs less than brass, but not to that extent!
