What do you think Richard meant when he said “loose his innocence”
I have a few crazy ideas:
Ben gains “knowledge” which causes him to loose his innocence. Perhaps whats in the temple saves him but in the process shows him something. Something that forever links him to the others.
Another idea is that Ben is changed somehow. This one is more about who the others may actually be. Sometime I think they are “not of our world”. Not Aliens by any means. Just that maybe they are from another world mirroring ours. Maybe Ben is now on the other side?
I always get this feeling that the others are either walking dead people (like christian), or that they are somehow not of the earth that losties are from. I am working on a theory about this whole dealeo.
Hoping to spark some conversation about this. I would love you know what you folks think the others might be, what happens to Ben.
