“Lost Libs”…Jacob or MIB(E.I.)…
There is a lot of talk right now about who is the good and who is evil. My instinct tells me to stay with Jacob…My logic breaking down wordplay such as “I am very disappointed in all of you” or “I feel sorry for you”, tells me to believe MIB is the one who is in the dark, but has better reasoning for his tasks. And my heart tells me to not stop believing in John Locke as being the savior I always had faith he would be…
But I have thought of a sort of off the wall idea…even for me…
The thought goes back to “Canton Rainier” sign on the van, and John Locke’s drawing of the monster as a child.
It is the simple, yet complex idea of reincarnation.
I believe that reincarnation is the key to unlocking Lost. There is heavy focus on Dharma and other religions and mythologies that believe heavily in reincarnation.
I believe that in the world Lost exists in, there is a government of faith in a dictatored, scientific state. I strongly believe that Lost will play on the idea of science being superior until the end, then spirituality rising up and taking over for the finish line.
Through science or spirituality, the people of Lost have been given an opportunity to have a second chance, one way or the other…and I believe that one of the main themes of Lost is learning from mistakes.
Taking this to a grander scale, I also believe there is a reincarnation type of act occurring when the Losties flash from one conscious to another, as we have seen Desmond Hume do several times now. When these people flash/jump to other realities/timeperiods/memories/dreams, there is a purpose for it in the long run. But that purpose was created through the use of time travel like elements in part by the scientific Dharma Initiative, based on the spiritual idea of reincaration. No, even I dont understand how it works fully.
The reason I believe that it is more based off of the idea of reincarnation than ‘simple’ time travel is due in part to Mr. Hume’s words…”See you in another life”. I believe that it is an early clue, that what we are witnessing are not simply flashes through time…but flashes to other lives…other “incarnates” of ones self…some good incarnates, some “evil”…starting to understand?
I would like to play a game of “Lost Libs” with anyone who wishes to participate in my theory…For once I have found the story easily…but am having trouble placing the names at this point…and am asking for help…so…fill in the blanks to my theory…
Either “Jacob” or “MIB”…
Although I believe that we saw _____ and _____ sitting on the beach together looking at Black Rock…I believe ______ was also somehow on the ship or heavily related to the owner, most likely due to the time travel properties of the island, and the thought that this has all happened before.
From our understanding, Magnus Hanso possibly owned and operated Black Rock on its fateful journey. It is also my understanding from the show, Lostpedia, and the map…that Black Rock may be the final resting place of Magnus Hanso. I believe it was the last place he was “once a man” or regular person as we all are. Also, Black Rock was a slave ship from everything we know…and most likely from a place where free will does not exist.
I think that Magnus Hanso was running the ship, and was bringing the slaves to the island for _____, after a previous visit off island possibly. The slaves conscious/souls are trapped on the island…and act as infection in a way to “incarnate” themselves back into existence, in the name of either war or peace.
Magnus Hanso was inspired by a divine act of faith, to bring along the chosen ones to help with a task…they all had work to do. _____tried to stop it from occurring, and ______ spins the frozen donkey wheel, moving the island and allowing the ship to be smack in the middle, where we can find it today.
_____ was once a man, and had everything taken away by _____ in the same manner we are seeing the Losties have the very same thing happen to them.
_____is trying desperately to achieve his goal, through any means necessary, lying, hiding, manipulating…while _____ gives a person a choice, or free will to do what he wants…even though the end result is inevitable regardless. He, unlike _____, knows that one way or another things will fall into place…and just wants the Losties to have the opportunity choose their side, before it is forced by the hand of fate.
Think back to early in the show. Many people had things that were going to run out, and although it was inevitable that they would run dry of something they feel they needed, many people made the choice to end it on their terms.
Sawyer and his cigarettes, Charlie and his heroin, Shannon and her recently reminded of asthma inhaler…these things were all part of the story, and all part of building the character of each individual. Some people ran to food drops when they ran out of food, and some hunted and gardened their way through the transition into island life.
This all plays back into fate and free will. No matter how insignificant or important, it all plays back to the entire show…everything happens for a reason right?
I feel in the long run, that either _____ or ______ are trying to free the people, trying to allow for free will to run rampant across the universe…but at what cost to the universe or even the individuals.
We know _____ is willing and has killed in the name of what he believes in. He is willing to sacrifice others to achieve his goal. And _____, knows that even if the person he is trying to help loses their light…they will find it another way.
In conclusion. I feel that the slaves aboard the Black Rock are very possibly lost souls that are trying to make their way home as well. Both EI/MIB and Jacob have both found a way to cheat death, and I feel that the infection is possibly a way for them to have life again…a way to incarnate themselves through other individuals…who knows, maybe the Losties ARE the passengers of Black Rock, trapped through the work of _____, and Lost on the island, carrying the knowledge of the entire islands history since their arrival and entrapment…(think “this isnt supposed to happen”)yeah, thats reallly stretching the idea, but had to throw it out there.
I do feel that one way or another, the souls of the ship are going to be related in some way to what is happening with either the infection, the idea behind free will, or the Losties themselves
And I believe ____ is trying to free them, possibly for his own agenda, and _____ is trying to help them free themselves…the only true freedom that will give any of them the redemption they really need. We have already seen _____ willingly sacrifice himself in the name of his beliefs, and to me, that is as good as one gets…I wonder if _____ has ever done the same…it does not seem he is willing to now, and although he may have his reasons, possibly tricked into it before, it doesnt make what he is doing right.
Oh, and in case you would like a direct answer into who I believe is good and who is evil…its simple…
____ is by far evil, and ____ is easily on the side of good…come on people, pay attention…
