MIB is the rabbit
I am under the impression that the writers are trying to mislead us in regards to the root of this show. I do not think that anything happening is supernatural in nature. I think the show is going to be firmly rooted in scientific theories. Which can seem to be supernatural.
So based on that I have been really focussed on all this talk about the MIB and him being evil. I do not think he is an evil entity. I think he might be a human that has been put in a situation that has caused him to become evil. But it’s all a matter of perspective I think. Here are the statements about him and the situation that have been spoken.
-He is evil
-He will infect
-If he leaves the island everyone will go to hell
-If he leave the island every living person on the island will die
-If he leaves the island everyone (this time meaning on and off island) will cease to exist
The last one being from last nights episode. Spoken be Charles. So in my opinion when someone says someone will “cease to exist” they are not talking about death in the regular sense.
After last nights episode I was happy to see Desmond’s return. Then I was thinking about what they took Jin for. They wanted him to help make sense of the location of the pockets of energy. Somehow they are related to MIB getting off island. Desmond has had the most intimate contact with this energy when he turned the failsafe key in the hatch. Something happened to him there that made him an anomaly. No longer bound by the rules.
So here is what I have got so far. It’s crazy, but I’m sticking to my guns on this. Till the writers totally prove me wrong…
MIB is just like the rabbit from The Orchid orientation video. In the video Marvin is explaining the station is not a botanical research station. He is holding a rabbit with a “15” written on it’s side. Then something happens, he freaks out, and behind him is another “15” rabbit on a shelf. It seems to blink into existence. He yells at some co-workers to get it away from the one he is holding. I believe this shows us that two of the same entity can not exist in the same space, at the same time. Which is a common theory in sci-fi.
Then think about the Lighthouse and the mirrors. It could be that the names written around compass represent realities, and the specific person in that reality. So the island with it’s magnetic pockets of exotic material is perhaps a focal point? A place in which all possibilites can be seen.
Now imagine that MIB somehow comes in contact with the Island long ago. The island being super special as it is. Caused him to become what he is… somehow. More importantly though, makes him an anomaly and unable to return to a regular state. Perhaps he exists outside of reality, unhinged in time, unable to exist in a specific timeline. If he were to return to a timeline not of his own, he would cause a chain reaction that would destroy that reality, or perhaps all realities.
Desmond is somehow part of this. Being similar to MIB in some way? Maybe he can stop his leaving?
I can’t put it all together yet. That is what I go so far though.
Let’s hear what you think folks!
