Thanks. My favorite part is how Charlie looks at Desmond, after Desmond says "enlighten me" and then ZAP.

What is the general symbolism? Why does it strike some people as looking noble and others as looking creepy?

And what's up with the red splotch on the left shoulder? blood? catsup? paint?
They discovered it in King Tut's tomb. I found the pic researching while I was still over on lost dot com. I don't know anything about it other than I was immediately completely drawn to it.

I think that's what Jacob wanted to prove, innate goodness would ultimately prevail, it's a built in thing.

Well... I think this is an awesome vid. Just a quick look at work, I'll rewatch tonight though. Bravo.

LOST wasn't an incoherent mess after all.

Oh... it was a mess and you'll not convince one person here or anywhere otherwise.

It LOST its way a bit here and there and the ending was still poorly written and poorly executed.

However, you have worked hard to develop what I wanted LOST to be from S1 on. It's a stretch (your theory), but many of your points are feasible. I have always been onboard with the central plot line is religious in nature. If not religious - than at least spiritual (why are we here and how much can humans change for the betterment of our world).

I too even saw Daniel being in a University setting and studying time travel, physics as to be a counterpoint to Desmond's "faith".

There are going to be many scenes that show you theory is flat-out, unarguably incorrect and many the support it (and many more than can be debated as to meaning). The bottomline is that the writers (IMO) should have had something like your theory more in mind from the beginning so that they could have written a "perfect" show. Certainly it's very hard to debate the meaning and coincidence of the numbers/flight/verse 316.

1. Still my favorite show of all-time
2. By not clearly stating the meaning of the show (even if through inadvertent writing gaffes) allows us to discuss the show forever. Not just here - but, like, college course material.

After all, some people witnessed a miracle and still weren't believers...

It's impossible to reasonably suggest that my theory is not THE solution to LOST. There is NOTHING in the show that argues against it.

Ajira vs. Oceanic was the intent and the thesis from day one. At least, the religion vs. spiritual part was. They may have come up with Ajira later during the process. But the main premise from day one was that these godlike characters would bring people to the island as an experiment to settle the spiritual vs. religious question.

The meaning now is 100% clear and unambiguous. But yes, it is by far the best show of all time, and my favorite. Nothing comes close.

Re: The True Meaning of LOST

I just sent my video to Carlton Cuse on Facebook.

And btw, this thread is 100% inaccessible from any menu, seemingly permanently, now.

Should I start one with this video in theories? Is there an anti-nam conspiracy?

Re: The True Meaning of LOST

The LOST forum is undergoing massive rearrangement.

Thank you for pardoning our dust.

*COUGH*

When bought through the astore, they also help support this site, which isn't self-sufficient and doesn't hold fund-raisers or any of that other crap.

Please consider doing at least some of your holiday shopping through our astore this year.

Thanks. It gets lonely in the barren wasteland.

Clearly, this vid should be featured on the home page of LTV.
