I Hate Lost… really though – BIRDS
Okay, so I hate Lost because now that I have been watching Flashforward I watch so intently for clues that I cannot enjoy the show. Every license plate that goes by, every exact character name.
Anyways, to start an idea I had regarding the bird/Walt, in the new show Flashforward a bird similarly runs into a window just like when it happened to Walt. Also in the show, a bunch of crows die unexplained. I have an idea which then leads to another.
First, I believe that in both cases, Lost and Flashforward, magnetic north has shifted instantly thus causing the two window smacking birds to be “lost.” They must have some evolutionary GPS programmed anyways but then I read on Lostpedia about Magnetite (I think). So if magnetic north all of a sudden shifts due to Walt (or Locke, more below) the birds are like what the hell? Bam! Windex time.
So then I got to thinking about magnetic north and south poles. What if Locke were one pole and Walt the other? Also the whole light and dark thing but I don’t know how that would tie in..
So if Locke were one pole theoretically would that have thrown off the compass, the one he handed off to Sayid and declared he didn’t need anymore? The one where Sayid states something along the lines of how north seems to have shifted, and if Locke where standing nearby, like a magnet, he would throw off the accuracy of the compass.
Just some thoughts.
