Horace’s Cabin – Theory Revisited/Revamped
(Admitedly, we don’t know Jacob’s cabin IS Jacob’s cabin – probably held MIB … but … )
Jacob’s Cabin and Horace’s Cabin is the same. Horace sounds like the Egyptian god
Horus, and his wife/mother is Isis – the goddess of fertility and the son/brother of Osiris – the Lord of the Dead/Resurrection. He was supposed to protect the people of Egypt from Set. The Pharaohs are said to be he in human form.
Another Horus link to babies is w/Tawaret – the goddess who protects pregnant women/childbirth. She was sleepin’ with Horus’ enemy, Set – the god of the chaos/darkness/desert (he’s delicious). Set lost a testicle, and that’s why the desert (and island?) are infertile. [Yeah, more info than we needed to know, but that’s what it says. There’s more to this story that could explain why MIB won’t eat food from Jacob *blecch* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horus ]
Set/Horus also fight to see who should be the ruler of Egypt (others?). There’s also stuff about ‘the Eye of Horus’.
So … How about Jacob is Horus and MIB is Set … and where do you go when you get off the island by spinning that wheel …
Problem – Horus has a falcon head – but then Tawaret’s is usually a hippos.
