Episode 6x16 / Skeletons in the Cave
« on: May 31, 2010, 08:04:49 PM »
I was looking at lostepia's timeline which had a reference to Rousseau's friend Montand that lost his arm and then was subsequently killed by the smoke monster after Rousseau's party landed on the island in "This Place is Death".  That made me remember the skeletons in the cave when Desmond is lowered down into it. 

This made me go back and look out of curiousity, at first there is a shot with two skeletons, then it shows one more that looks like it could be missing it's left arm.  I don't have the time right now to go see which arm the guy lost, but does anyone think that that skeleton could have been Montand's?

It might be a stretch, but it's something I have not seen anyone mention.

Episode 6x16 / Why pregnancies failed on the island..?
« on: May 29, 2010, 02:03:03 AM »
Two theories seem to be going around about this, the more older and seemingly more common one being that this was caused by the Incident.  Was this ever explicitly said during the series or the writers or is it just a theory.

Since the emergence of Jacob and his rules, the other theory is that this is one of his rules.  This is also supported by the fact that no past group of people was able to maintain their civilization.  It is also supported by the fact that Jacob primarily brought/allowed people to the island in search of his replacement and he eliminating Kate from consideration because she was a mother.

I was just wondering if I missed or forgot something and if the Incident theory was ever given as the explanation.

Episode 6x16 / Jack's Stab Wound
« on: May 26, 2010, 01:08:21 PM »
It's not a major issue or anything or any huge revelation, I just think it's interesting -

Did anyone else gather that Jack knew the stab wound in his side was fatal?

He's a doctor, I'm pretty sure he knew he was going to die from it.  He even tells Hurley as much saying "I'm already dead" before he goes in to plug the cave.  That's why Jack didn't let Desmond plug the hole even though it could have been safe for him to do and that's why he didn't book it out of the cave and he just laid there smiling.

I've read more than I care too about the whole time travel discussion but I thought of something interesting that I have not read anywhere.

Has it occurred to anyone else that the actions of the time travelers could effect their future?

I know you are probably thinking I'm beating a dead horse here, but bare with me.  What I mean by future in this sense is not defined by time  (ie 1977, 2009, etc...) but time from the characters perspective, things that have not happened to them yet.

Here's a couple examples of what I mean to clear things up:


In the Dharma days Jack believes that they still might flash back to present day (the time Locke and Ben are in) and hides a cache of guns (or pills) in the 70's thinking he might need them in thirty years.

Jack saying to Kate "Haha, I'm going to put this black stone and this white stone in Adam and Eve's pockets to mess with ourselves"

Assuming Ben remembers Kate's actions saving his life as a boy, he could remember what she did and sacrifice himself to save her life.


I just thought this concept is pretty cool because it allows predestination and free will to coexist.  So I guess what I'm trying to say is its possible their actions in the 70's can not change anything up until present day where locke and ben are (meaning whatever happened, happened) but anything thing that occurs after present day is not predetermined yet and can still be effected. 

Tell me if this isnt making any sense and I'll try to explain it another way.

Theories & Speculation / Electromagnetic Radiation
« on: October 26, 2006, 08:49:02 PM »
I posted this in an episode discussion board.  It might interest some of you so I reposted it here.  Just some food for thought...

Don't know if anyone has mentioned it, but we know there is or was some kind of weird electromagnetic field.

This could be accompanied by electromagnetic radiation.  Gamma radiation is electromagnetic radiation and a very-high energy type at that.

Being such high energy radiation, it would account for why there are underground bunkers (concrete, lead, etc... are needed to shield people from this type of radiation) and the "incident" could refer to some type of leakage or fallout...

It is ionizing radiation meaning it's the type that can cause damage to cells and DNA and interfere with cell division.

It can be a cause a cancer (see Ben...  on the island his whole life).

It causes sterility (see Juliette... the fertility doctor).

If Ben really was trying to persuade Locke to let the time run out on the numbers it could have been to get rid of the source of the radiation.

Gamma radiation is actually high speed photons (particles of light) which could explain the bright light when the time ran out at the end of last season.

A large release of it could cause an EMP pulse causing the plane the crash.  (I don't know how it would not have wiped out the electronics in the bunker but maybe it was directed upwards somehow)

In nuclear reactors carbon rods are used to keep the uranium from reaching supercriticality (preventing a meltdown like Chernobyl)...

Typing in the numbers every how ever often it was could have done something similar.
