Dharma Booth Video, a closer look :)
While killing time at work this morning I wandered around Lostpedia, and came across the video clip called ‘Dharma Booth’, the one from Comic-con. I knew I had watched it before and remembered the general gist of it, but I thought I would take a look at the transcript. It proved to be quite interesting. Here’s the first part that made me smile:
Chang: ‘I’m begging you, no matter what’s happened, it’s imperative that the DHARMA Initiative be reconstituted. You have to continue the research [static] and you have to do it now. Time is not just of the essence, it is the essence. [static] Perhaps you’ll be able to find a way to save us, to change the past and to… [static] Please, please! You have to stop what’s about to happen, you can’t let us…[static]’
Ok this immediately got me thinking about what I could possibly pluck from that paragraph that would help solidify my reasoning behind thinking there might be an upcoming change to the past. Depending on how this video came to be made, and depending on what actions Pierre Chang is about to take after learning of his ‘unavoidable’ death….I don’t know..Maybe this is where the whole ‘changing the past’ ball gets rolling. Which is about 1977, no? I haven’t really thought this out a whole lot, a la it being in the fun category. but I don’t know, maybe this is our first clue to the fact that Dharma is going to strive to change the past. And possibly succeed.
One last tidbit I thought I’d throw out there, the last line of the video is: ‘No, no, no, La Fleur what are you doing?! [static]’………..hmmmmm…interesting.
