Let’s take a look at what we do know about the cabin.

We were first introduced to the Cabin when Ben took Locke there to “meet” Jacob. Ben proceeded to talk to an invisible chair and tried to pursuade Locke that Jacob was sat in the chair. Just as an unimpressed Locke decides to leave the Cabin, all hell breaks loose. Things begin to move around the room, things break etc. and Ben is pushed accross the room and we see for a split second someone sat in the chair. We also here someone saying “Help me”. Locke is the only one who hears it and this then annoys Ben. In Season 5 we find out that Ben had never even met Jacob, and when he took Locke to the Cabin he was pretending to talk to Jacob in the empty chair.

Another thing we know about the Cabin is it is surrounded by an ash ring, which at some point gets broken. From meeting The Temple Others we know that the ash was used as protection against The Smoke Monster / MIB. So, the ash around the Cabin was either keeping Smokey out, or keeping Smokey in.

My theory is, it was used to keep Smokey out. Smokey was surveying the island since The Pilot and I think the ash circle around the Cabin was broken after that time (more on that later), so it couldn’t have been used to keep Smokey in.

So, if it was to keep Smokey out, was it really Jacob in the chair? My answer is no.

Think back to Room 23 – the “brainwashing” room that we’ve seen. We know that was a part of some Dharma experiment, and I think that this room is somehow linked to The Cabin. I think that whoever gets put into the “brainwashing” chair can somehow project themselves to The Cabin. At that moment when Ben and Locke are at the Cabin, no one else is present in the room. But around that time someone is being “brainwashed” in Room 23. I’m not entirely sure who, but whoever it was was able to project themselves for a couple of seconds to The Cabin when Ben and Locke were there, and asked them for help.

Walt was also being “brainwashed” when The Others kidnapped him, only Walt is “Special”, and was able to project himself in places where is wasn’t supposed to be. That is, any place in the world, any place in time. I’m going off the subject, but I believe that when Walt appeared to Locke and told him he had work to do, this was when he was being “brainwashed” in Room 23. I know he wasn’t on the island at that time, but when we was being “brainwashed” he could project himself to the future. He could also project himself to the past (when Shannon saw him).

Anyway… back to The Cabin. Ben knew of the Cabin, he’d helped with some of the experiments, but he’d only ever witnessed things that happened at Room 23. He’d never seen the effects of these experiments at The Cabin. So when he went there, he never expected things to start flying around the room and was just as in shock as Locke was.

So, why didn’t Ben hear the voice ask for help? That, I believe, is down to Jacob.

Long before the experiments started, Jacob used The Cabin as a place to go when he was bored of looking out to sea. He placed the ash around it to prevent his brother from going there. When Dharma came and found the Cabin they decided it would be a great place to try their “brainwashing” experiments. They didn’t touch the ash. They knew something or someone had placed it there for a reason and didn’t want to tarnish it.

However, after The Purge, instead of getting his cabin back like he’d hoped, Ben and the Others decided to make use of the “brainwashing” technology. So, because of Ben’s involvement, Jacob punished him by not allowing him to be so “in-tuned” with the Island. On this miracle Island Ben got a tumour, he had to have an operation to have it removed and took a week or two for him to fully heal. Jacob made him like this.

So when a voice said “Help Me”, Ben couldn’t hear it because he wasn’t as “in-tuned” with the Island as Locke was. Of course, Ben had a hissy fit when he realised just how special Locke was when Locke told him he’d heard someone in the Cabin. Ben knew it was part of Jacob’s punishment.

When Illana and her crew arrived at the Cabin, they were expecting to find Jacob there because he had used it often before Dharma showed up. When they saw the break in the ash circle they knew that it’d been used by MIB and that’s why they burnt it down.

Locke broke the ash circle when he and Ben left The Cabin. When he broke the ash it caused a temporal anomaly due to the power of the ash and the experiments that had happened there. Just like Room 23 allowed its victims to project themselves to The Cabin, The Cabin was also able to project itself somewhere else on the island. But only for a short amount of time, and only once the ash was broken. When Hurley stumbled upon The Cabin it had already taken occupancy by MIB (in the form of Christian Shepherd). But it was still shifting around on the Island which is why Hurley saw it in two different places in a short period of time.

MIB was using The Cabin as part of the bigger plan to kill Jacob. He knew that Locke now thought it was Jacob who had asked him for help, so he knew he could manipulate Locke on his next visit to The Cabin.

But who was the person that peered through the hole and looked at Hurley? It certainly looked like MIB was with company. However, I think it was just a trick of MIB’s. He can turn himself into anyone who has died on (or off) the Island, and he knew Hurley was looking through the hole, so he thought he’d have some fun and stare back at him. Only, it wasn’t Christian Shepherd’s form staring back at him, it was someone Hurley knew who had died. (I wanted to say his grandpa but I know it looked nothing like him, and can’t think of anyone else in particular).

So, The Cabin. Mystery Solved?

INTRO
Unfortunately, this theory of mine won’t delve into the spookiness associated with the Cabin; I simply want to layout my thoughts and paint the picture of what I believe happened when Richard Alpert came to the Island. Why Richard? Because the day Richard came was the same day the four toe statue was destroyed, which was the first step in the chain of events leading to the use of places such as the Cabin.

Remember what’s different with Richard; he was the first (and only) of his kind in the game between Jacob and MIB. Remember Richard and Jacob’s first conversation on the beach?:

RICHARD: Before you brought my ship, there were others?
JACOB: Yes, many.
RICHARD: What happened to them?
JACOB: They’re all dead.
RICHARD: But if you brought them here. Why didn’t you help them?
JACOB: Because I wanted them to help themselves. To know the difference between right and wrong without me having to tell them. It’s all meaningless if I have to force them to do anything. Why should I have to step in?
RICHARD: If you don’t, he will.
[Jacob pauses for a moment, taking Richard’s words into consideration.]
JACOB: Do you want a job?

Based on that conversation, I think the “game” up to that point might have been boring. Just imagine Jacob and MIB laying back, eating stone grilled fish on the beach, watching people “come, fight, destroy, corrupt” and/or “make progress”; and every time new people came, it always ended with everyone dying. That’s what Jacob said; “They’re all dead.” And that’s exactly MIB’s frustration; it all ends the same, so why even bring them to the Island?

So with the pieces of the game dying each time, it really doesn’t “win” or “lose” the game they’re engaged in. It’s only a difference of opinion; MIB says they destroyed themselves, Jacob says it ended but there was progress. It’s a stalemate.

So with the arrival of the Black Rock and Richard Alpert, Jacob expanded the game board a little. Jacob chooses to use an intermediary to teach the game pieces how to think for themselves.

THE FOUR TOE STATUE
Before Jacob talks Richard into taking the job, it was actually MIB who made the first bold move in the game; destroying Jacob’s home base, the 4 toed statue. Before I go any further, let me explain the basis of my argument; we all know it’s Jacob who chooses who comes to the Island, but I believe it’s MIB who chooses the manner of how they arrive. That manner always involving a crash; BlackRock, Henry Gale’s balloon, Oceanic, Aijira, Nigerian plane, Desmond’s Sailboat; all crashes with fatalities (except Desmond of course.) So why crashes? To kill as many people as possible, narrowing down the game pieces; MIB’s method of play is to first eliminate the variables.

So by crashing the Black Rock in a storm, he accomplishes two things; making the ship passengers easy prey and destroying Jacob’s home. So what’s the significance of the statue? I believe it served several purposes:

1. Jacob’s home:
Where he slept, ate, sewed, kept warm near the fire etc.

2. Jacob’s place of protection:
Jacob told Richard nobody is allowed inside unless they’re invited. That must be one of the game rules; so as long he’s inside, he’ll always be safe. (The Leader of the Others always had invitation, which MIB of course took advantage of later.)

3. Jacob’s meeting place. I say this because it would have been an ideal place; only people he invites may come in, so it would be a fairly secure place. But until Richard, he never wanted to meet with anybody.

4. A landmark to guide people to the Island:
I’m sure any ship that sees that huge statue, would immediately change course to investigate. That might have been what happened to the Black Rock. It’s similar to the transmission of the numbers to bring Rousseau’s ship in.

5. A place of Magic:
Here’s where things get interesting. It’s not the statue itself that produces the magic; it’s the ash within the fire circle. The ash is key. It’s symbolic. It’s actually the enforcer of the rules of the game.

One of the powerful magical phenomena the ash can be used for; it allows objects/people to appear/dissapear any place they want to travel. I know this may sound far fetched, but I believe the evidence supports this. Three things I can think of; 1) The cabin appearing/dissapearing 2) Jacob suddenly appearing in the statue when MIB and Ben came in 3)Jacob traveling on and off the Island.

MIB’s DESIRE TO DESTROY THE STATUE
I’ll stretch the traveling phenomena even further; I seriously doubt Jacob slid that huge stone door back and forth every time he exited and entered the statue. He could simply appear out on the beach to go fishing, or appear in the temple to talk with Dogen, or appear in America to give Jack Shepherd an Apollo bar. He’s Jacob for crying out loud. The game player isn’t constrained like the game pieces.

So the only thing MIB could piece together is that Jacob lived in statue, and that he could travel anywhere he wanted. By destroying the statue, Jacob would no longer have that power, or so he thought.

This is where Jacob’s grand illusion begins. When the statue is destroyed, Jacob pretends he doesn’t live there anymore. MIB doesn’t know anything about the living area inside the foot; he’s never been inside the statue. This is why Flocke is so surprised when Richard brings him to the foot:
FLOCKE: What is it? Why are we stopping?
RICHARD: You’ll see.
FLOCKE: Well, it’s a wonderful foot, Richard, but what does it have to do with Jacob?
RICHARD: It’s where he lives.

JACOB ON THE MOVE
After the statue is destroyed, Jacob of course continues to secretly reside in the foot. But to create the illusion he lives somewhere else, Jacob chooses a second home; the cave at the cliffs. When and how MIB founds this out is unknown. I would think the cliffs are difficult to descend down for MIB in smoke monster form. And I would like to think MIB discovered the cave after Jacob had already written candidate names and numbers on the wall; kind of a slap in the face to MIB, letting him know at the right moment how much planning is involved selecting his candidates.

Another place worthy to mention; the Lighthouse. One of the purposes of the statue was to guide people the Island, the Lighthouse replaced the statue for that very purpose. I think it’s obvious the Lighthouse was built long after the temple and the 4 toed statue were built. The temple, tunnels, and statue were likely built from people who were Egyptian; the Lighthouse, absent of heiroglyphics, was probably built during a time when the world was being discovered by ships much like the Black Rock. That being said, Jacob had people build the Lighthouse to guide ships to the Island, and of course for Jacob to use the mirrors to observe his candidates’ lives.

THE CABIN
What is the cabin? It was a place Horrace built to vacation with his family. His wife Amy liked to get away from the Barracks, even on picnics, which we all know got her first husband killed by venturing into Hostile territory. So Horrace built a cabin, which he knew was safely outside Hostile territory, yet far from the Barracks to avoid running into his own people too.

Horrace was the leader of the Dharma Initiative residents. When Richard had a problem he needed to discuss, like the missing bodies of his people, he came to Horrace. So when conflicts arose that needed to be discussed, but not to the point of Richard coming into the Barracks; it makes logical sense that Richard and Horrace would meet halfway at the Cabin.

The ash surrounding the Cabin could have served two purposes. Firstly, it kept the smoke monster from coming in; perhaps Horrace pleaded with Richard on having that since he was used to having the protection of the perimeter fence.

Secondly, the ash was probably used for its mystical transportive powers that I talked about before. Instead of Richard talking to Jacob to receive instruction, then meet with Horrace to go over those instructions; why not bring Jacob’s presence right there at the meeting place? Think of it like this; by laying down a ring of ash, Jacob new exactly where to appear. Maybe that’s how Richard would meet with Jacob each time, even places other than the cabin; lay down a circle of the ash, and Jacob would mystically appear. The circle was only bigger at the cabin because it was used for both transportive powers and smokey protection.

FOOLING BENJAMIN LINUS
Sometime afterward, Ben discovers the Cabin as an established meeting place with Jacob. It could be Richard brings him along for a meeting with the Dharma people, or Ben spies from the woods and sees Richard visit the place often. Regardless, in Ben’s mind, he believes that is where Jacob resides.

Things change somehow, and this is where my theorizing goes flat. Somehow, MIB or “somebody else” is using it (Ilana’s words), even while the ash circle is still intact. Ben, still under the impression that’s where Jacob resides, brings Locke there in the episode “Man Behind the Curtain.”

The Island was an elusive creature that no one could just visit because it was always moving. They would either be invited by an inhabitant or were un/fortunate depending on your perspective, to land there.
The cabin a child of the Island, like its parent also moved constantly. If The Island moved thru space/time so did the offspring but in its own independent fashion.

To understand desperation is not the intent of this submission. To understand the event sequences given the emotional driver, is.

The Cabin being vulnerable as any other living thing was inevitably expropriated by MIB with the intent of using it to escape the Island. Paterned after his Donkey Wheel, MIB over the millennia, had developed a mobile Donkey Wheel technology, however he lacked the physical ‘hardware’, a device or even better described, a vehicle. This vehicle had to be composed of particular elements. For example all parts needed to come from the Island; wood branches, grass, sugar cane, a cloth hosting the embroidered picture of the statue made by Jacob for decoration and so on. Symbolically it was to be born of the Island.
The problem was he could not build such a structure himself, it had to come into a natural existence. MIB had to patiently bide his time awaiting the opportunity to present itself. When Horace Godspeed decided he needed a getaway from his pressures of being the Dharma lead, MIB saw great opportunity. Before The Cabin was finished he planned the Dharma Purge and when it was complete he orchestrated it. Thus ridding the Island of those who came to corrupt and destroy but firstly to get the Godspeeds the hell out of the cabin. Unknowingly, Richard, young Ben and the Others carry out the grand plan believing the instruction has originated with Jacob.
Note: The Dharma Purge to be discussed in detail in another venue.

The cabin was perfect. It was made above ground, made of the island and in an area that was remote and easy for MIB to access. His work then begins. He assembles the elements required including elements from the Island’s power source that emit high levels of EMR (Electro-magnetic Radiation) which was stored in jars. Energy required for time/space travel. The Cabin is developed to the point where it can now move thru space/time but for some reason it is confined to the Island geographically. Having it work like the Donkey Wheel will require much more work.
Fortunately this setback gives Jacob and team time to discover The Cabin’s existence and reason d’etre before MIB can complete the work.

After the Purge, Jacob had thought hard about the significance of the act and about its implications. He knew he had to work quickly to determine what MIB was doing. Knowing MIB as he did helped motivate in that quest. Given the gravity of the situation, all of the Others were asked upon to help find the source of recent reported temporal distortions. There was no question in Jacob’s mind it was the work of MIB.
The campaign would later explain how Ben knew how to find The Cabin, although he didn’t know quite what it was. Once The Cabin was found they postulated, dreamt and hoped they had discovered the source of the disturbances. Soon afterward is was conformed The Cabin was indeed the center of the disturbances and a circle of ash was laid down by the Temple leader – not to keep MIB or any one else imprisoned or safe inside but rather to keep MIB out in order to prevent him from possibly finishing the project and escaping the Island.
In essence the cabin represented another failed loophole for MIB. This among dozens of other failed attempts throughout the millennia. This time however, one could sense this failure was not absolute.

The question then becomes; why did MIB not use the original Donkey Wheel, directly, to escape? The answer is plain; he was not allowed (another rule) or able to for some reason. Perhaps the Island itself was preventing that action. The proof of this is presented when Locke falls into the well that leads to both an underground tunnel and the wheel. There he encounters Christian aka MIB. Having broken his leg in the fall he asks Christian for help in which Christian says he can’t thus implying MIB cannot directly move the wheel.

Sometime between 2004 and 2007 the ash circle gets broken; by who may not be of importance. What is important is The Cabin is accessible again. MIB of course returns to resume his work. But he cannot spend as much time on this project because he is working on the time loop one involving Locke and the compass. Now that he has his vehicle, his home base (The Cabin) returned to his possession, he can proceed. The project often keeps MIB up late at night and out of space/time. This latest loophole project, seemingly having a better or more accelerated chance to succeed, MIB invests most of his energy. Killing Jacob would certainly make the job easier wrt his ultimate goal of leaving the Island. Now, The Cabin’s purpose slightly changed. He uses it for several purposes actually;

1) A conference room for meetings for example with Locke and Claire.
2) An office and command post for planning.
3) MIB also uses it to follow Locke and the Losties thru time in S5.
4) He rents it out on occasion for some extra cash (I added this for fun)

In the meantime Jacob discovers further temporal disturbances are occurring. He surmises desperately, the cabin must be accessible to MIB again. If he is right the fate of the world is in the balance. He then enlists Alana to come to the Island to find and destroy or more accurately, burn it to the ground. But by then, of course, it is too late. The Cabin is no longer an issue. In the borough of an event so potentially horrible, Jacob retreats to the statue’s foot, his home, to contemplate alternatives as well as prepare for the unthinkable. MIB appears to be one step ahead of Jacob.
The Cabin originally slated as an escape pod has now served a very different purpose, an unfathomable purpose. In its smoldering aftermath is a shrine to MIB’s apparent victory over Jacob. The Cabin is now dead and soon to be accompanied by Jacob.
Is this the beginning of the End of the World?

I had not looked at other people submissions prior to posting this. I tried is keep this theory as isolated as possible. Not to say others cannot use any of these ideas if indeed unique. I encourage the practice. Together we will figure this thing out; this thing being what we fondly refer to as Lost!

This is a post from Emzis TVUNCUT site voicing my opinion of the first two episodes of “The Event”…all comments can be found in the link…http://forum.tvuncut.net/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=2182

The pilot was good, not great. The one flaw of the episode was that it was obvious that the plane was not going to crash and kill every main character in the first episode…it would have been awesome…but it wasnt happening.
The second episode was miles above the pilot episode, it really should have been a two part premier. They had me for the first time having a sense of concern for the characters well being.

The fact that they actually killed all the other passengers was, in my opinion, a bold move from a network prime-time storytelling perspective in the second episode (maybe it was just the scene of bodies). I very much enjoyed that part. It also let us know that large unexpected deaths are very much in the realm of possibility on the show as well.

I liked the idea of the plane disappearing, and let it be known as I called out “wormhole”, immediately after the event took place, and although I blushed at the obvious…the show leaves me with that thought that it could be…something different…although…

The admittance to electromagnetic energy being involved early on was pushing the envelope of a wormhole…and a “Lost comparison”… and involving a plane doesnt help matters for “what would happen if Lost and 24 had a baby”, otherwise known as The Event…but I must say…so far it has delivered.

Im interested to see the way they take this…not so much the storyline, but how long the average viewer can take a show with many questions and little answers.
Im even more interested to see if it can keep myself and other former Lost viewers guessing and watching…or if we have already been there and done that, regardless of the reward…Im going to try and stick it out.

I said to a friend after the pilot that although I was interested, I wasnt 100% hooked.
When the opening scene of Lost began, I knew I was in for something special, and they had me GLUED to the screen for the episode. By the time the episode was over, I knew I would watch the season no matter what happened. But it wasnt until “Walkabout” that they had me forever. I knew when that episode was done that I would watch every single last scene of Lost until it was off the air.

The Event is not LOST, although it has the potential to be “THE EVENT!!!”. But it needs its “Walkabout” episode. ALL shows of this nature need a “walkabout” episode. A single moment, a single character that will make you stick through the rough patches of a long-lived show. None of my forever dramas survive without a “walkabout” episode. It needs something that no matter what happens, an event in a single characters life is more important than that plane disappearing.
Kidnapping wont cut it. Mass slaughter wont cut it.

But what…or should I say who may cut it is Sophia. (Laura Innes, wonderful actress, actually suprised she never cameoed on Lost)
Her story COULD be the one that makes me love The Event, if its done well…

As for what our “Event Others” are…

I will not believe it is aliens until they blatantly say so on the show…for the moment, I’ll lean on an alternate universe or parallel dimensional race from none other than Earth.
My final answer…

They are human. Maybe from a parallel/alternate universe…but Im going to go with people from the future of earth (yes Im calling time travel)…maybe the last of the people of earth before it is destroyed…evolved, as everything does over time into better humans…humans 2.0 if you will…

Im not sure the cause, or reasoning for their return, or the end of the world…but I would imagine more humans and advanced science have something to do with it.

Good start, has my attention…now it just has to get up and “walkabout”…

4/5**** so far…let me know your thoughts…

Ok so I have just finished watching the entire show again (my girlfriend wanted to watch it, and of course I’m willing to re-watch it in fact I would do it again right now.)

But that’s not the point of this post. As I re-watched I had a lot of questions answered, and by the finale I really didn’t have any gnawing questions. I assume this is because of watching it straight through, and not having those big lulls to sit here and read and post theories, the only question I had was this.

Where the fuck did they get all that tarp from, I’m serious every person had a good amount of tarp, and there was tarp to make stretchers and water collectors and all other types of things. I don’t know about most of you but I don’t travel with a suitcase full of tarp, and I don’t thinks planes have much tarp in them. It really confused me with all the extra tarp, did they just have extra piles of it? Because when the tailies come they hook all of them up with tarp, and then jack has more to give to juliet, can someone please explain where this tarp may have come from? Am I just ignorant to the fact that airplanes have an emergency stash of tarp? thanks

Hey everyone! Here is the subject for this months theory contest. As it’s the month of Halloween I thought I’d come up with a subject that is kinda “spooky” (at least it seemed that way when we were first introduced to it!). Yup, I’m talking about “The Cabin”. (This was also suggested by shephards_flocke last month) 🙂

So, basically, explain the whole story behind the cabin. Who was there the first time Locke and Ben went there? Why/how does it move? Who’s eye did Hurley see? What’s with the ash ring? Is it protecting the outside or inside etc. etc. Loads of things happened with this cabin but when trying to fit the pieces together with what we know about Jacob and MIB, it just doesn’t all add up.

So you have to come up with a theory that explains most of its mystery and tie it all together.

– Enjoy! xx

I would like to comment that the theories presented in this round were as valid as any other, in my opinion. Great stuff all. I don’t think one could pick and choose a theory just because it is the one (sounds sort of Matrix like doesn’t it?) as opposed to; it feels like it’s a better fit for me. The latter thought probably reflecting an essence of the Lost drama…interpretation, perception and democracy. Why I’m here! No…I am not pushing the Democrats.
Now on a business note, I would like to request my submission be declared void http://www.theoriesonlost.com/2010/09/who-is-the-good-guy-anyway-theories-contest/ wrt this month’s gala as stated in my theory string, not to be confused with String Theory or Big Bang Theory, the TV show not…OK, I stop rambling now. If you want more TV WEB discussion maybe Admin knows where, admins know stuff. In addition, it would be less than honest if I were to say I was worried there was a chance to prevail.
Although, I believe the theory to be valid, it flounders by attacking one of the show’s fundamentals wrt the idea of Good vs Evil. The theory basically says, Good and Evil are interchangeable. And it goes on to say; Good and Evil being unnecessary discrete states why shall they be considered apart. At least that’s what I say now ha..ha. Unintentional as it was, it was an off-the-cuff thought and based on opinion of real reality (can that be said?) inversely related to .. what else, Lost, but in retrospect — morbidly boring TV commentary indeed. Elaborating, ‘not what you call a prime time winning composition’. Yes, I do owe you one after this!.
Besides, not that it is important, I don’t think the producers were on that track. Their version would have been more like Good and Evil are distinct states arrived at by situational events as opposed to preexisting states that require occupancy; a chicken and egg thing, this of course debatable as well.
I will say submissions from this camp for the competition of the month future, will not be consistent with this one’s. ie I intend not to revoke any future offerings (that’s what I say now ha…ha). Didn’t think it was ‘proper’ to ask to delete the particular entry after the amount of elapsed time since submission. There is such a thing called IT Etiquette, you know.
Thanks to Admin for this and the idea of hosting this debate as well as allowing thoughts to be shared, or if you wish me to speak for myself…mine.
Without the series airing anymore, this forum has been a great continuance. Good fun! Hope it goes on and on.
Looking forward to the next Theory of the Month!
