I don't know, but I just kept thinking Gary Oldham every time they said his name - ugh.  And then all I could think of was Deliverance.  Quadruple ugh.

I apologize to everyone who thinks Jacob is a combination of people based on the first letter of the first or last name....but the whole thing just makes me laugh.  If it ends up being true, I'll eat my words...but, sorry---I just can't even take it seriously.

I might be able to take it seriously....but I don't think I'd like it if it were 5 guys.  :-\ Us ladies gotta represent!! lol

there is other things on this show that are more out there then JACOB being an acronym for 5 people, and you accept that.
Title: Re: J.A.C.O.B
Post by: LostinLock on March 28, 2009, 04:17:15 PM
Yes, I agree but why can't Jacob just be a person and not a compilation of people?

Title: Re: J.A.C.O.B
Post by: this is some crazy stuff on March 28, 2009, 04:18:59 PM
he can be.  Its just a theory of mine.
Title: Re: J.A.C.O.B
Post by: TheBrightandTheDark on March 28, 2009, 04:57:55 PM
I had a theory that Jacob isn't a name, but rather an acronym. And that it isn't necessarily spelled like the name...it could be JAKB or YAKIB or something.

I could go either way with this one because the only thing pointing to the idea that Jacob is a person is that Locke heard a disembodied voice, and we caught a glimpse of some dude in the rocking chair. But if Jacob is the name of the island, and it has to be run by five predetermined leaders....your theory could work, crazy stuff. Well, it could work in a lot of other ways too. If there's anything we learn from Lost, it's that anything can happen.

I know Crazy has been for some time.  I just don't hope it is a group of folks, but now we have five back they could be the ones!  Just that their names will not have anything initials making the word Jacob.

I like that you hold to your thoughts on this a true fan and theorist!
Title: Re: J.A.C.O.B
Post by: this is some crazy stuff on March 28, 2009, 06:02:47 PM
I dont necesarily mean that Jacob is a group of people but that different people become Jacob through out the history of the island.  The names of these people just happen to start with J.A.C.O.B.

It's a fun theory, but I don't buy it.

Post by: Astriastar on March 29, 2009, 04:53:56 AM
 But let's take it a step further.  There are 5 senses.  If John can hear him ("He spoke to you?  What did he say?" - Ben) but couldn't see him, and Ben could see him ("he's right there"- Ben) but John couldn't, wouldn't it stand to reason that each one can sense the manifestation in different ways, and so that "JACOB" isn't necessarily 5 people, but rather 5 different people are necessary to experience "JACOB"?  Like prophets or mouthpieces or visual manifestations (Christian)?

J - John - Sound
A -
C - Christian - Touch
O -
B - Ben - Sight

Just an off-the-wall idea.  It's 2 am here and I'm drowsy on Tylenol PM.  Maybe we're all wrong.  But it is curious that we've only ever seen Christian as "Jacob" and the other two have demonstrated their connection to the senses.  So if this were true, How would Aaron and Oldham associate with taste and smell?

I'm always skeptical..there are few theories that I stake complete claim in.  I just happen to not get this one.  I like the idea down at the bottom about the senses though...that's interesting---don't know if it is correlated to the letters of the name Jacob though...

Why can't Claire touch him or Charlotte. i like what you wrote good push to another thought.
But not sure because we are focusing on just who we know perhaps there are other names from the past .

C for Charles Widmore
A for alpert
see we could drag this on and on.  So if it is compilation of names so be it, but I am still out on this one.

Welcome aboard

Thanks!  I know, it's silly to just think of who we've already seen; Oldham is a good example of that.  No one could think of an "O" before he came on the scene, and that's not saying that he's the one, just the only "o".  Assuming that any of this is correct, I doubt Charles Widmore would be included, since he's not really part of the island.  He's trying to get back to it, and unsuccessfully as far as we've seen.  It's interesting that there was a woman in the registration bldg with Christian and she has been assumed to be Claire or Charlotte (two more "c" people. 

Thankfully, the silver lining of the looming series finale is that we will have all of our questions answered (hopefully). How crappy would it be for them to just leave us hanging?

Alpert could work but I think Aaron will have a bigger story in this.  That is why I have him on there.

Widmore:

They're not the "Others" to me. They're my people. We protected the Island peacefully for more than three decades. But then I was exiled... by him... just as you were


1954-198????.......I would say that he is part of the Island ;)

I can see it now: the letters J.A.C.B. scrawled in hieroglyphic-like writing inside the temple. "The One" has come to be known as Jacob. He will have killed his father. He will lead us.

Do we know who Aaron's father really is? REALLY? (or is it just Thomas). According to the prophecy, whoever it is had better watch his back.
