the missing islets. *(an islet is a small island)
we have all seen the main map in season one.. solitary..
(notice, no islets south of the island, by the crater)
this is from when Sayid is going to steal them.. same ep.
I flopped it back and straightened it.. the bottom right one is correct (due to writing seen on the map)
then we saw more map in another episode..
Sayid had noticed when he overlapped the 3 maps, they fit together, kinda showing the location of something
.. exactly 9.47 minutes in, Sayid overlaps the maps.
[Shot of Sayid spreading out maps.]
Once I realized these equations were coordinates, latitude and longitude, I assumed the French woman was trying to determine the location of the island. But it was incomplete, the notations fragmented.
Except for the fish song.
But when I laid the pages down like this [Sayid lays the maps on top of each other revealing a triangle] I realized it wasn't showing the location of the island. I think it's a location on the island. Specifically, here.
So where are we in relation to the triangle?
Well, the map is hardly in scale, so I don't know.
We're not even sure it's a map of this island, are we?
We're not, no. But this may be the transmitter sending out the distress call. And it's power source.
This is when I noticed the oddity of "LES TROIS ILOTS
" on one map..(three little islands
and but not the other.. you can see it coming in from top frame..
the last map overlapped, is the corner from this one...
and you can clearly see the same main islet with the triangle
and there are many islets shown on this map...
"les trois" around the main one.. and a few more to the south west of the island..
this whole scene is the southern/eastern side of the island..
(those who read my island thread know the frustration I've had with the side view)
And the islets don't even appear on danielles birdseye map.. see the first maps posted ^
imo TPTB had given us our first puzzle.
now this one spoke words on where the piece fit..
notice the island sticking out with the islet of its own.. ?
