The Answer to Lost

Okay, this is NOT a Lost blog, I know, but I can't help myself.

I was reading Hoy's recent post and JJOK's recent post about Lost, and I started to write a very long comment to Hoy about what is really going on on the show. Then I figured, why fill up his comments, especially when I can put it here and wow you with how I figured out what is going on on the show Lost. Buckle up, people. This is one hell of a ride.

First, you should know that in the summer, Lost did an online game where over weeks they leaked information on fake sites for the Dharma Initiative and other random sites. I didn't play along, but I followed up and got a lot of the info that was released during the game. Without this info, there is no way you are going to crack the puzzle of Lost yet, but with it, I've come up with a complete explanation that fits EVERY aspect of the island and show.

Let's give you some background. The Numbers are actually part of the Venzetti equation, which predicts the extinction of man. The Dharma Initiative is trying to find a way to stop the extinction by changing one of the numbers/variables. I'm guessing they chose the island (which is on Earth, nowhere special) because of the Venzettin equation. Probably, whatever is affecting the pregnant women will spread to the rest of the world, causing the extinction of man. That'd explain why they are trying so damn hard to get chicks to carry babies to term on the island. That'd also explain why they sought out Juliette, a fertility expert who helped her barren sister with cancer get pregnant and give birth.

The problem is, Dharma is controlled by a big corporation, the Hanso Foundation, and they likely have deep pockets and big time connections. The recent news that the Oceanic Flight was found crashed in the ocean was a coverup perpetrated by Dharma/Hanso so that the island would not be found. Notably, Naomi said that they found the plane on the ocean floor via robotic cameras. Convenient, aye? No people? Why not? CGI, motherfuckers! Dharma's government or media connections probably helped the cover-up happen.

How did Locke's dad get to the island? He explained it. He was forced off the road (Dharma, those bastards!) knocked unconscious and then kept unconscious until he was revived. When he first sees Locke, who was supposedly dead in the crash announced via the media, he thought he was in hell. But they are not. Know why? Naomi.

Naomi, the chick who was searching for Desmond, basically solidifies the fact that they are on planet Earth. I always theorized that the tides kept boats from the island. That is the same reason why Walt and Michael were told specific coordinates to leave the island. That's probably the only angle where the tides allow passage to/from the island. Interestingly, Naomi covered the gap in my theory by stating that she didn't see the island until her helicopter flew through a bunch of clouds. For whatever reason, there are natural formations (clouds, tide) that hide the island. That's not so surprising, when you consider what the island is all about.

Basically, its in the middle of the Pacific and it has some healing properties. It used to have that huge electro-magnetic thingee too, and I'm not sure 100% what that's about. Whatever the case, clearly Penelope, Desmond's love who sent out the search party, knew that Desmond was alive in a hidden location that exhibited electromagnetic anomalies. Remember the Portuguese guys in the snowy tent at the end of last season? They were there to simply wait for any electromagnetic anomalies to help Penelope find the island. It finally came through, they got the info, and Naomi was sent out with a search party to the middle of the ocean...because the island is not on any maps! Cue the tide/clouds, and only Naomi finds the island. Communications were blocked either by Dharma (they want to remain private and hidden) or maybe the electromagnetic properties of the island.

Following? Good. Dharma is willing to do anything they can to save the human race, but they are bastards too. They allowed the "good people" to join the Others, but left the bad ones behind, because they don't want to deal with them. All of the survivors we saw from season one were flawed, hence they were kept outside of the Others. Other people had crashed on the island, like Russo, but unless they were "worthy" they couldn't/didn't go with the Others.

Hmmm...anything else? I don't think so right now. There are lots of details, so I'll be glad to address any questions.

Until next time, make mine Lost!

Your thoughts on the following would be an interesting read as I enjoyed this post thoroughly:

1. What about the black smoke
2. The huge monster polar bear
3. The Horse that Kate saw
4. The two people that were burried alive (so we think), why didn't they say anything to anyone when they found the plan that had the herion in it? How did that plane get there...?
5. Do you think that Jack knows that Juliete is a mole and is actually with the Losties? That tricky bitch.

All really good questions. I'll see what I can do...

1. What about the black smoke

This one is tricky. At first I thought it was part of the Dharma projects, maybe the "security" for the island. They have crazy resources and braintrusts going for them. Part of me thinks it might just be one of the mystical parts of the island, akin to the healing properties. I admit that I'm not 100% sure on this. Juliette claiming not to know what it is really threw me for a loop, but she's a lying whore.

2. The huge monster polar bear

That's a lot easier. Dharma had a bunch of different scientists on the island, including zoologists. The bear is part of the zoology part of the island, probably from the cage where Sawyer was kept by the Others (of course, being on the other island makes this less likely, but they probably have similar facilities on the main island). At some point, Dharma did start falling apart or perhaps refocusing away from the animals, and the bears are roaming free...

3. The Horse that Kate saw is the horse. If it isn't part of the Dharma zoological experiments, then it may've been a hallucination, recalling past traumas, since her flashback involved a similar horse (akin to Jack and his dead father, which unlike Locke's dad, was not really alive on the island).

4. The two people that were burried alive (so we think), why didn't they say anything to anyone when they found the plan that had the herion in it? How did that plane get there...?

The plane crashed. Why didn't they tell anyone? Good question. That's the biggest flaw in the show. People are paranoid an keep secrets for no seeming reason. Why hide Ben in the hatch for so long? Who the fudge knows. At least they explain why they hid Naomi from Jack.

5. Do you think that Jack knows that Juliete is a mole and is actually with the Losties? That tricky bitch.

Great question. I wouldn't be surprised if they (Jack and Juliette) had a trick of their sleeves and were planning on double-crossing Ben. I also wouldn't be surprised if Juliette confided in Jack and the show didn't show us about it yet; Jack wouldn't tell the rest because they already suspect Juliette and hearing that she was sent as a spy would only heighten tensions.

Thanks for the comment and questions, Schaub.

What is this lost game you speak of?

Horse wasn't a hallucination cause sawyer saw it too, starting to think that Michael and Walt didn't make it off the island at all...where did they go? I think the thing that Jack and Juliette are hiding is that there is no way off the island without the submarine and all outside communications have been cut off...but u know the show has a billion twists so who knows...Personally still rapping my mind around the time travel inconsistencies in heroes...

Long time listener, first time caller...

One interesting thing from last night that I've been puzzling over. When Sayid sees the phone that Naomi has, he says that he had never seen technology like that. Sayid seems to be pretty up to date on technology (based on how well he can fix things), so this was surprising, but reminded me of something that Damon Lindelof said during a Q&A at Comicon. When asked about the show's timeline, he said "It’s interesting that you should ask about time because you’re making a basic assumption that they’ve been there as long as they think they’ve been there." It brings into question just how much time has passed in the outside world since they crashed on the island. Something to try to wrap your brain around...

And for what it is worth, I don't think Naomi is being entirely truthful. The look on her face when Sayid questions her story makes me suspicious.

I guess i need to watch lost if i want to read this blog anymore.

How many seasons have i missed?

What about heroes? Do i need to watch that too?

I'm lost, but I don't watch Lost.

My problem with Lost is two-fold. First, why haven't they moved to the town that the Others were occupying? Sure you can argue their best chance for rescue is on the shore, but they have been there for what, 3 months? For the most part, they have accepted they must live their lives here. Go live in comfort in the damn houses already!

So we know that Gin and Sun are getting it on, Sawyer and Kate are doing the deed, but who else and where are they doing it? These people have urges. You know Charlie wants to dip his wick. Can't someone give Hurley a hummer and make his day?

Ok, threefold. They found old beer. No one has set up a still by now?

One thing no one seems to have caught is how Penelope is searching for Desmond. Remember during season 2, when fake commercials for The Hanso Foundation would come up at the beginning of a commercial break? They showed a website, and on the bios of that website, one of the executives of the Hanso Foundation is Charles Widmore. Penelope's FATHER. Somehow, she knows to look for a magnectic anomoly, and has the resources to do it. How she knows Desmond ended up there, I'm sure will be explained.

My guess for all the hallucinations is it might be the smoke monster. It read Eko's mind, and materialized as his brother before it killed him. Perhaps it did this with others.
