remember too that locke never saw anybody in the cabin, he just heard a voice.  of course, if the eye is locke, then now he may have seen somebody.

a cow is sacred in Hinduism.  the basis of lost is redemption and, could it be, reincarnation.  these characters cycle back to realities each time being tested.  echo in this episode obviously failed again and remains lost.  he almost made it in his previous cycle.  in reincarnation, there is an implied timeline.  but what if God is pulling a des carte's and has the brain in the bubble thing going (basically the matrix setup).  fail one reality simulator and He puts you back into another.  poor Echo.  gotta stay away from de smack.

Plus the heroin, the death of the kid, and the resurrection poster.  It was Echo back in another reality.  Ooooohhhhh.

Perhaps the island is actually in the desert and the reference to a freighter is crap.  We haven't actually seen the boat that Naomi and the boaties are from have we?

God don't give me the answers but help me ask the right questions.

yes, but has charlie shot him yet?  if time doesn't matter, or realities are crossed, Ethan may not yet have been born.

If I post a theory for which I have yet to have proof, is that a flash forward?

Information sent from different bodies travelling at different velocities is subject to the doppler effect whether travelling in a doppler or analog format.  The information in a digital broadcast would be completely normal, but would arrive at either a higher frequency or lower frequency signal depending on whether you were travelling towards or away from the broadcast respectively. 

I have been trying to find landmarks to compare time and I think that the writers have been very careful on this point....even misleading.

I didn't take anything as an attack.  I was simply being a smartass, that's smart ass.

Many stories involving alternate realities have been successful.  Just ask Mr. Stephen King, or better yet, I will.  I wish I knew him that well.

Anyway, I invite all of you to watch the old twilight zone's, quantum leaps, amazing stories, and etc. (feel free to add more).

In many of these shows, the acting was atrocious, the sets horrific, and the storylines quick and sometimes contrived.  However, it was the zinger that got you and kept you coming back.  Alt realities (see AIRHEAD) is a pretty ideal platform for repeated surprise.

I really dont think that the writers of this show are going to have flash-forwards and flash-backs in the same show.  It would cause to much confusion on everyone involved.

I also dont believe in any of the alternate reality, course correcting mumbo jumbo, that seems to go on, on this site.  It seems like it is just a very easy way to explain everything that goes on. 

Seems like if we dont have enough info on a certain plot in the story yet, that it is automatically said to be caused by two different timelines.  Seems like a crap way out of a real story to me.

Not attacking anyone here just my thoughts.

I'll let the writers know that they are causing confusion and that, from now on, Lost should be a straight forward family Who's The Boss.  We can put Tony Danza on the island along with a scantily clothed Alicia Milano. 

Mark my words, the boaties and the six got off the island, lost memories, different reality, christian alive in a reality, and multiple realities (use the acronym MPU or whichever one you want).

Episode 4x02 / Re: Why Are They After Ben?

The second part of my question was unclear.  If they want to kidnap or Kill Ben, then why not just send commandos?  If they want to make friendly with him, why send a commando? 

My thinking on this is that this group may have figured out how to get on the island, but they haven't had much luck getting off.  Therefore, they sent a diverse group to see if the group--using someone from each of three disciplines--can figure a way off.

Ben holds the key to all and I think that we will learn that Ben, though not a good guy, is a better guy than bad.

He is behaving in diametrically opposed fashions.  

The only thing that would explain the strange behaviors of the boaties (except Naomi) would be for their actions to have occurred after they have left the island (notice I don't say the future).

They, like Jack and Hurley, have been thrust into Desmondland by the mechanism that got them off of the island.  When they go back, memories of the island (and possibly of their pre-island reality) are coming back piecemeal.  That is why Miles just looks around (no recollection yet), Dan cries without knowing the reason (early return), and Charlotte/Frank express disbelief when given the news of 815.

In seasons one through three, the flashbacks gradually captured the characters letting us know why they were who they were.  These clips were much different and were similar to last week's Hurley FF (flashforward).  They were quick, focused on 815 (why?), and showed no interconnection to the characters (as is often seen with FB's).

Season three's climax, last week, and this week's shows have left me each time wondering whether the world these guys came back to was the same as that they left.  I think this applies to the scenes (FF's) of the boaties as well and, therefore, I believe that the mechanism that got them off of the island has sent them all back to an alternate reality.  The boaties went back through the same mechanism and are therefore getting the same Desmondland treatment.

Everybody disagrees with me.  Last year I predicted that Locke would survive because the bullet passed where his kidney should have been.  Quite a leap.

One question.....why would alcoholic Frank guy participate in a cover up of a plane crash in which he was supposed to be the pilot, his friend actually was, and he feels guilty about?  Answer....He wouldn't.  Yet, he is shown working with a group who care nothing for the survivors and who, if Mr. Abaddon is to be believed, "did not" survive even if they did.

The answer......he wouldn't.

So, he is then shown phoning the NTSB telling them that this is not 815.  So, he is not participating in the cover-up.  Now, you have to ask why people so smart as to get to the island would allow this guy to go with them.  If they knew that he was to be the pilot of 815, they certainly wouldn't expect him to keep his mouth shut about seeing survivors (and we know that survivors were considered prior to the mission). 

The plausible explanations evaporate when you see his behavior towards Juliet....he doesn't care about the losties, only a native. 

So, why then is he concerned about the history of 815 after the news flash?

Maybe he was chosen because he suspected that 815 had been a cover up and his phone call got him recruited.  But that doesn't explain his nonchalance towards the losties.

Next, he might have placed the call as part of the operation to shift focus to the cover up by the "other side."

And, he might be placing the call after he got back from the mission because he is now in Desmond land (alternate reality) and a flash forward.

Finally, he might have a wet brain from drinking so much.
