Written 11th May

So I spend nights reading theories all across the internet since I don’t have any friends that watch Lost, and every episode leaves me on the !! ‘what do you think!?’

And In my experiences so far, I truly think the writers may try to satisfy the least number of theories to make the story line a big hit. At the same time I think they will leave it open enough to make all of the scientific and religious fan theories still hold water.

I know they have already filmed the last episode. . . and watching Across the Sea had absolutely no surprises whatsoever after reading so many posts on the interwebs.. but as for the big *”ending scene”* everyone is trying to predict. I think, and hope, it will throw us off the edge of our seats.

Because, really. . . The reason we all love Lost is all from the thrill of the times we felt that way before. I hope the season ends with us all re-evaluating the entire show.

(which I am extremely hopeful it does… after this much! As an example, suffering through Mulholland Dr. and having my mind completely blown during the last 10 minutes and not being able to function at work for a week while trying to ground)

Is that too much to hope for. . . or do you all see it specifically punching an underlying plot.

Written 8th April

OK, I will try to put my random brain droppings in a coherent thought here on why I think Boone and Shannon are meant to be a couple (as in LOVE, not step-siblings). I would love feedback.

– We know originally they were Step-Siblings
– We know they had a “thing” for each other and “relationships”
– After last week, I am assuming LOVE is the constant
– Everyone seems to have a determined person who is meant for them.

Why do I think Shannon is Boone’s ultimate partner? OK, one thing the writes do really well and write in a why that makes us ASSUME what is happening or read too much into things. The best example for me is the Black Rock. When we saw Jacob and MIB on the island watch a ship come in last year, I know I, and many others, assumed it was Black Rock. But this year when we saw Black Rock crashed, it was stormy out. Many people I know were trying to figure out “Why is it stormy when we know it was clear out when Jacob and MIB saw the boat come in.” So I went back and watched that beach scene again. There is NOTHING that actually points to that ship being Black Rock other than our imaginations and the similarity in boat style.

Flash forward to this year (Mmmm.. FlashForward… another cool show)… Shannon is NOT on the plane. Boone says he went to Australia to get his “Sister”. Note, he NEVER says Shannon. Remember, this is an alternative timeline where everything seems different. It is plausible that Shannon and Boone’s parents never get married and they are not step-siblings. And Shannon not being on that plane is a problem because Boone is meant to meet Shannon and ultimately they are meant to be together.

Like I said… lot of random thoughts going into this one… pick apart please! 🙂

Ok, here goes (starting from the current season):

When the H-bomb went off, it allowed for the pocket of energy to expand not only to the island, but to the entire world

what that did was split the world into 2 realities

in the island reality, they are all doomed. everything is proceeding as normal

in the other reality where their plane never crashes, there is no island because that reality was sent into the distant future where there is no jacob to control them and the island is burried underwater.

the whole point of the island is the fountain of youth

where they tried to heal sayid

the two protectors of the island: jacob and his friend were sent to the island to protect the fountain of youth from corrupting people

they were first sent to egyptian times

their main goal is to keep it safe and not let it fall into the wrong hands because it could mean the end of humanity

so the egyptians built a temple

over time jacob brought others to the island to keep it safe

but it always ended in tragedy

richard is one who drank from the fountain

that is why he never gets old

over time jacob’s friend got tired of living on the island attempting to protect the human race which he believed was beyond saving. eventually he just gave up and wanted to get off the island.

his way off the island is through locke

jacob, now, to protect the island has taken over the body of sayid

i think that it will end with everyone in the island reality dying, but at the same time showing us that the “real world” reality was saved through their death and the chain of events that started w/Oceanic 815 crashing on the island.

yeah, thats the theory

now, whether jacob and his friend are angels sent to protect the island or humans from the future who know of our destruction is another matter…

OK, this has long eluded me… All the theory’s,etc… Then I was watching a repeat episode last night and a light came on.. What if the numbers point to a bible passage. So taking the numbers in order, 4 being a book. Well it has to be in old or new. There is not enough verses in the Old Testaments 4th book, so it has to be New… which just so happens to be the book of John…

John 8:15,16,23,42 (NIV): You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one. But if I do judge, my decisions are right, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father, who sent me. But he continued, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and now am here. I have not come on my own; but he sent me.

What was book 4 of the OLD testament? Numbers.

Made me think… hmmm…. (maybe this theory is out there already and I missed it LOL)

And to play it out just a bit further, there is a painting that Thomas (Aaron’s dad, Claire’s bf) did that ends up in Widmore’s office (http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/File:1×10-3×08-thomas-painting.jpg) has the numbers 1125 in the upper left. Those numbers are not part of “The Numbers”. But if you apply the above theory, you could conclude it points to Genesis (first book of the bible), Chapter 1, Verse 25: God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.(niv).

Again, if this is posted out somewhere else, I apologize for not giving proper credit. I just haven’t seen it anywhere and wanted to know what others thought?

And less we forget Flight 316 could easily be (and has been suggested as such) a reference to the Book oh John again, chapter 3, verse 16 (probably one of the most famous passages in the bible)…For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

There are other numbers scattered throughout Lost. I have been working on them taking it from this same perspective and I continue to find some interesting corolations… I will post more later but would love some input on this theory.

Theory

  • When the bomb exploded the universe forked into two.
  • One universe is our original, where everything unfolds like it always did (whatever happened, happened).
  • Our original universe continues to exist with our losties (1977 and 2007).
  • The new universe, created in 1977, has no Jacob!
  • We’ll see events from the new universe where our usual set of characters are brought together differently (through course correction).

Rules of the theory

  • The episodes are the actual timeline (minus flashbacks / forwards).
  • Everything we see in Lost (in episode order), happens in that order / timeline.
  • I’ll call it the showtime (show + timeline) for ease of explaining this theory.
  • Considering the above, showtime events are happening together in 1977 and 2007.
  • Showtime is flexible, sometimes things in one time period can proceed quicker than another.
  • Jacob and possibly his enemy live in the showtime (beach scene was a flashback).

Here is a list of important events, in showtime order, that are important to my theory:

  • Key lost characters were influenced by Jacob, this had always happened and was how they ended up where they were.
  • Juliet wasn’t. Does this make her special and her choices untainted?
  • Jacob is killed in 2007.
  • Juliet detonates bomb in 1977.
  • My theory comes in here, the universe is forked.
  • Since in showtime Jacob died before the bomb exploded, he’s dead in our new forked universe.
  1. Our good old universe, where whatever happened, happened.
    • 1977’ers make it back to 2007 (maybe not straight away).
    • 2007’ers are still there old selfs.
    • Nothing appears to have changed / reset.
    • Jacob is still alive from 1977 to 2007 due to the whatever happened rule.
    • Died in 2007 from the POV of anyone in this universe.
  2. New timeline
    • Created in 1977 due to the bomb.
    • Jacob died / simply disappeared, in 1977.
    • History unfolds without Jacob.
    • Course correction takes place to still pull together our characters.
    • Desmond didn’t go to the island to push the button. With no Jacob, Widmore and his daughter would have lead different lifes, no boat race for Des, brother.
    • No Desmond means the plane doesn’t crash on the island, they may still get on it though due to course correction.
    • Characters who were influence by Jacob (Losties in their past, Others without their leaders leader), end up leading different lives.

Why and what I think might happen next

  • Season 6 will see them discover the split eventually.
  • The two universes cannot continue to exist and must be merged.
  • The numbers 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42. Must be changed to save mankind.
  • Supposedly underly the Valenzetti equation which predict the end of humanity.
  • The new universe will have different numbers.
  • Somehow the old universe and new will merge / interact to change our main set of numbers.
  • This will save humanity.

Reasoning and possible proof

  • This explains why Desmond suddenly had the memory of Faraday. Ignore the fact that Faraday was in the past, according to “showtime” this just happened so Desmond suddenly gets the new memory.
  • The numbers when being stamped on the hatch in 1977, the last number was smudged on the paper work. Maybe this is a hint that one of the numbers is changing or will be changed.
  • I doubt the writers would do a what-if view of the losties lifes had they not crashed.
  • This would be a world without jacob that the original universe needs to survive.
  • We get the keep the characters we know and love / hate.

Well, I hope that makes sense. We’ll soon start to see if things pan out according to my theory, although if the Lost writers get wind of this, they’d probably change the end 😛

Also, what makes “showtime” difficult is that lostpedia groups events of an episode into the time period (e.g. 1977 and 2007) instead of order shown in the episode.

I think we’ve had numerous hints that The Island is somehow connected to the Ring of Fire — the area of increased volcanic activity in the Pacific Ocean (http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/File:Pacific_Ring_of_Fire.png).

Specifically, my theory is that The Island can only “move” (whatever that really means) to points located along the Ring of Fire.  Alternately, The Island doesn’t even exist in our space-time dimension, and “windows” to The Island only open along the Ring of Fire.

Some hints about the Ring of Fire from seasons 1-5:

1) Flt 815 was near Fiji when it crashed.  Fiji is in the ring of fire.

2) Eloise Hawking’s church and the Lamp Post are in Los Angeles.  LA is in the Ring of Fire.

3) The staged 815 wreckage was placed in the Sunda trench near Java, in the ring of fire.

4) The Oceanic 6 were “rescued” after landing on an island near the Sunda Trench.

5) The freighter was last ported in Fiji.

6) Nuclear weapons tests in the 1950’s took place on Pacific Islands loacted in or near the Ring of Fire.

7) Polar bears are from the Arctic, and the ring of Fire passes right through southern Alaska.

8) The listening station that detected the sky turning puple was likely located either in the Antarctic or Arctic.  If it’s the Arctic, that’s definitely in the Ring of Fire.

9) A submarine was used to get to and from the Island.  A submarine might be able to descend into an ocean trench, which is a very common feature in the Ring of Fire.

10) Mysteries of the Universe Part 5 says a Dharma food palette accidentally dropped onto the Isle of Tonga, which in the Ring of Fire (although unsure if this is canon).

So why is the Ring of Fire special in the Lost universe?  Three ideas:

1) It just is and that’s that.

2) Consider that ocean trenches and oceanic volcanoes are places where the Earth’s crust is particularly thin; they’re places where there is only a small amount of crust separates you from the Earth’s mantle. Maybe a thinner crust allows the Earth’s natural magnetic field to come through more strongly.

3) The solidified rocks deep in oceanic volcanoes actually incorporate some mantle material.  Perhaps there is something inherently special/magical about the Earth’s mantle in the Lost universe.  The Orchid orientation video alludes to “exotic matter”, and maybe the mantle is full of exotic matter, and just a little bit of it solidified in the extinct volcano on the Island and that’s where they built the Orchid station.

I noticed that most of the theories about time travel involve the “what”s of the events. Well, I feel like explaining the “how” of the time travel and the FDW. If you remember, when Locke watched the orientation film at the Orchid, Dr. Chang mentioned that the Island’s unique properties created a large Casmir effect, and hidden nearby was a vast quantity of exotic matter. In physics, the Casmir effect is a quantum mechanical phenomena that creates negative energy. Exotic matter is another name for negative matter, stuff that weighs less than zero. Now, most theoretical physicists, such as Stephen Hawking, believe that the laws of physics prohibit time travel in all regions except those that contain a large enough quantity of negative matter or energy. According to most time travel theories in mainstream physics, to travel through time you must have large quantities of both negative and positive matter or energy. We already know that the Island has a significant quantity of electromagnetic energy, not to mention the standard electromagnetic and gravitational energy that all matter possesses. However, the energies can’t cause time travel just by sitting there. They must be manipulated to make at least a part of space travel near or past the speed of light, depending on whether you want to go to the future or past. My idea is that the FDW is a kind of stirring device. It mechanically pushes a huge machine to stir up the exotic and normal matter in such a way to bend time around the Island. Tell me what you think!

hello guys, I am new at this website with lost theories. You should know that i am a physicist, and that i know a lot of things about time travel and all other goofy stuff. So read what i wrote, because it gets interesting.

Lets start at the begining. We know the answer, why the oceanic 815 crashed on the island. it was Desmonds fault. But do we really know what has happened there. What has changed. I am thinking time has changed its ways. We all saw Daniel Faraday going out of the submarine last episode. The theories that i heard are next. he was time traveling, he was away and returned 3 years later. Lets explain the first option. We all saw ceasar holdin a time line map. The map was showing the time bariers on the island. If Daniel wanted to travel in time he had to go right in the middle of all time bariers. And search for a portal. That would be possible if Desmond changed the time on the island when he crashed the oceanic 815, and didnt type those numbers in the computer. If Daniel was time traveling this would be the only option. But how would he know about that. Were the nose bleeds somehow connected? I am thinking that he was away of the island because he needed to get over Charlottes death. I really hope, that i helped clarify my theory. Its hard for you, but very easy for me:)

There must be some of us here…

I’m going to take a shot at an overall theory here. It’s based on my own observations as well as everything I have read on the many forums. So here we go…

The show is starting to take on a final form now. We know a lot more about things and theories are starting to get harder to come up with because the picture is starting to narrow. What I see in front of me now is a show with only a few really big mysteries left. The are:

—The Island itself.
The actual earth/trees/rocks of the island. Being as we know “exotic material” exists on the island. It seems likely the islands special features are comming directly from this source. What might that source be?

—Smokie
Smokie is attached to the island and in some way has a purpose. So far, all we know is it is some form of security system. It can identify/scan you in some way. It can kill your ass! It can not pass a sonic fence. It can also manifest itself in the shape of human form, and probably many other forms.

—The Others and Richard Alpert
-Once you’re an other you can’t go back (apparently). Unless your Juliet and you get judged and branded. Then your something else.. I guess. Richard is ageless. They are working for the island… maybe. They get new recruits. They have a weird thing with leaders. They probably know pretty much exactly what is going on but are very protective of that.

— THE END GAME

What in the hell is the point of this show? Not many people seem to talk about this one point. Is the world going to end? The Valenzetti equation seemed to state that is exactly what the numbers meant. To predict the date that man would destory itself. We have a lot of stuff about duality, a war, science and faith. Fate and Choice.

This leads me finally.. to my theory.

At some point in time. Be it past or future. The Exotic material ended up on the island. I’m going to place my bets on a meteor for now, maybe dark matter/mirror matter. Something that crashed onto the island (not a UFO!!!). When this happened the island got all it’s properties. Specifically, some form of time shifting and electromagnetism.

So the island is now super special. An anomaly. If this happened in the past. The island collected people and caused various strange events until it got to a certain point in time. A point I believe is in the future for us watching the show. As in a timeline past 2007 that we haven’t seen.

In this future the world is going to end. Something is going to happen because of the island and because of all the meddling from various sources. Possibly Jughead and Electromagnestism are going to mix. That would be bad. So the people of this future decide to do something as a last ditch to stop it all from happening. They take the island and set it up to send it back in time. Back with a purpose and a crew to travel through thousands of years in time to stop in some way the events leading to the end. To collect data…

Smokie is from that future and is a security system. One meant to protect the island as it collects data. Smokey may even be the data collector. Or maybe there is a lot of smokies? I do think Smokie(s) is nanobots. Pulled from the exotic material maybe? Engineered by the people of the future? Who knows.

Richard and his pose are the workers on the island. They do what has to be done to keep things safe as the island travels and collects what it needs. They may or may not be human. They might be like smokie. They might be immortal because of technology from the future.

Jacob.. well this is tough. I used to think Jacob was the driver of the island. That he controlled everyhting. Now I am thinking more that Jacob is going to be more random than that. That he is trapped by something, the incident maybe; and will come into play at the endgame. When it comes time to change things.

I do believe the entire series so far is showing us things that have always happened. The end game is “Can they actually change fate?”. Desmond maybe part of that and maybe Jacob as well.

The Losties are all picked by the island to move towards it’s final goal. To change the course of time. To break the rules and actually stop course correction.

Locke and Christian/Claire are all part of the island now. They are helping out it’s mission. Somehow they are different. Maybe they are part of Jacob. Existing in some realm outside time/space? Which allows them to be the hands and fingers of the island. To reach it’s goal.

That’s it! What do you folks think?

Ok, I am not a jacob/richard/smoke theroriat at all. I could care less about any of them, well, maybe I do care about jacob, but I think these have all distractions and ways to make us dobt out therories because no one theroy can truly tie all of these things together (which may just be the oint in and of itself). There have way too many Jacob theories posted without a lot good solid points being stated. So I posted this as a hand to someone who maybe too lazy to dig. So without further ado, I give you everything we know about Jacob…
Jacob, previously referred to as “Him”, is said to be the leader of the Others and the person from whom Ben received his instructions. Initially, Ben was the only one who knew how to reach, hear, or speak to Jacob; however, Locke has heard Jacob speak and Hurley has accidentally stumbled upon his dilapidated-looking cabin located deep in the jungle. Jacob has apparently enlisted the aid of the dead to act as his representative. Many details of Jacob’s identity, history, powers, and authority are still shrouded in mystery.
The first chronological reference to Jacob on the Island occurred in 1954, when John Locke entered the Camp of the Hostiles. He gained an audience with Richard Alpert by saying he was sent by Jacob. Richard recognized the name, although no further information about Jacob’s identity was revealed. (“Jughead”)

After living on the Island for several months, Juliet asked Ben for permission to return home. Ben informed her that her sister Rachel’s cancer had returned, and that Jacob would heal her only if Juliet agreed to stay on the Island. Ben later claimed that Jacob had successfully cured Rachel’s cancer. (“One of Us”)

Later, when Walt was being held in Room 23, Juliet told Ben that his decision to keep him there was dangerous. Ben replied by saying it was Jacob who wanted Walt to be in Room 23. (“Room 23”)

Episodically, he was first mentioned by name in “I Do”. According to Danny Pickett, Jack “wasn’t even on Jacob’s list”. (“I Do”) Soon after, when Karl was being forced to watch the Room 23 video, the phrase “God loves you as He loved Jacob” appeared. (“Not in Portland”) .
The first physical encounter with Jacob occurred on Day 89. After questioning Ben’s claim that there was a leader above him, Locke took advantage of the announcement of Naomi’s arrival to the Island to make Ben take him to Jacob. Ben explained that Jacob was not the sort of person one visits, but instead was the sort of person to whom one is summoned. Reluctantly, Ben agreed to take Locke to see Jacob. On the way, they came across a line of gray ash on the ground. They arrived at a small cabin nearby. Ben told Locke to turn off his flashlight because Jacob hated technology. Ben cautiously approached the cabin, and announced to Jacob that he and Locke were entering.

Inside, Ben introduced Locke to Jacob, and gestured to an empty chair; there appeared to be nobody else in the room. Ben appeared to be speaking and argue with Jacob, while Locke stood in complete disbelief. Locke accused Ben of putting on a show, but Ben claimed that there was someone sitting in the chair and that John was too limited to see. Locke told Ben that he was pathetic and turned to leave, but as he did so, he heard an ominous voice saying, “Help me”. Locke asked Ben to repeat himself, but Ben said that he had not said anything. Ben seemed shocked that Locke had heard a voice, which he appeared to not have heard, leading to the conclusion that Locke heard the Jacob’s voice while Ben did not.Locke shined his flashlight onto Ben’s face, and the room suddenly started to shake. Ropes and chains shook on the wall, chairs rocked, and windows smashed. Ben’s lantern fell to the floor, shattered, and caught fire, but was quickly and inexplicably extinguished. Ben also appeared to shake someone in the chair, about where their arms or shoulders would be, telling him to stop and that he has had his fun. Immediately after which, as if in response to his demand, Ben was thrown hard against a wall by an unseen force. There were very brief glimpses of a third man sitting in the chair and a close-up of an eye not belonging to Ben or Locke. Locke stumbled outside in fear and confusion. The chaos stopped as quickly as it began. Ben calmly followed him outside and hung up the now intact oil lamp. Locke asked “what on earth” was in there. Ben simply replied with, “That was Jacob”. (“The Man Behind the Curtain”)

Upon arrival at the mass grave, Ben shot Locke. Locke asked him why he had shot him, to which Ben replied, “Because you heard him”, referring to Jacob. When Ben asked what he heard Jacob say, Locke answered, “Help me”. Before leaving, Ben said, “Well, I certainly hope he helps you, John.” (“The Man Behind the Curtain”)

Ben returned to the Others and claimed that Jacob changed the plan; they were to attack the beach and kidnap the pregnant women a night earlier than scheduled. (“Greatest Hits”) Ben then told Mikhail that Jacob had told him to stop all communication off of the Island. Bonnie told Mikhail that she trusted Jacob, and if she didn’t, it would all fall apart. (“Through the Looking Glass”)

On Day 91, Hurley became lost in the jungle and came across Jacob’s cabin. He walked up to the cabin and peered in through a broken window. Sitting in the same rocking chair as seen in “The Man Behind the Curtain” was Christian Shephard. Jacob’s eye suddenly became visible through the window, frightening Hurley, who ran away. When he turned back toward the cabin, it was no longer there. Instead, as he turned back, the cabin was now in front of him. The door to the cabin swung open, seemingly by itself. Hurley closed his eyes and counted to five, telling himself that there was nothing there, there was nothing to be afraid of. Once again, when he opened his eyes, the cabin was gone. Hurley then fell over backwards and was scared by Locke standing over him. (“The Beginning of the End”)

After the survivors split into two factions, Locke decided to visit Jacob for advice. However, when he attempted to find the cabin, it was not in the same place as Locke had last seen it. Hurley accidentally revealed that he had previously seen such a cabin elsewhere, but quickly replied that he thought they meant the plane’s cabin. (“The Economist”)
After Keamy and his men’s attack on the Barracks, Ben said he and Locke had to see Jacob for advice. Hurley accompanied them, as Hurley was the last person to see the cabin. (“The Shape of Things to Come”) Along the way, Locke had a dream of Horace Goodspeed building the cabin. Horace told Locke that he needed to find “…me. And when you do, you’ll find him.” They went to Horace’s corpse in the mass grave and inside his shirt pocket was a map which lead to Jacob’s cabin.

Upon finding the cabin, Locke entered alone. Inside, Locke encountered Christian Shephard, who claimed not to be Jacob but said he could speak on Jacob’s behalf. He asked if Locke knew why he was there, to which Locke replied that he was there because he had been chosen to. Christian confirmed this, and then a creaking sound caused Locke to turn, seeing Claire in a corner. She told Locke she was fine, and that she was with Christian. Locke started asking questions, but Christian interrupted him, saying that that there was no time, and that the people from the freighter were already on their way. He told Locke to ask the one question that did matter: “How do I save the Island?”.

After Locke exited the cabin, Ben asked, “Did he tell you what we’re supposed to do?”. Locke replied, “He wants us to move the Island”. (“Cabin Fever”) Locke was not told how to move the Island; according to Ben, this was because Jacob wanted Ben to be the one to move it and thereby be banished forever from it. (“There’s No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3”) It has since been revealed that Locke misinterpreted what Christian said and Jacob actually wanted Locke, himself, to move the island. When Locke meets Christian again he is reminded of their conversation when Christian says, “You asked me how to save the island and I told you you had to move it. I said that you had to move it, John.”. (“This Place Is Death”)
There are several instances in which the Others refer to a leader without explicitly mentioning a name. These may or may not be referring to Jacob:

Tom said to Ethan, “You know what he’ll do when he finds out”, implying that “he” is above both of them in the Others’ hierarchy. (“Maternity Leave”) While being held captive by the survivors and being interrogated by Sayid and Ana Lucia, Ben stated, “If I tell you about [the Others], you don’t know what he’ll do! ‘ He’ll kill me!” Soon after, Ben told Locke, “The man in charge ‘he’s a great man, John, a brilliant man ‘but he’s not a forgiving man. He’ll kill me because I failed, John. I failed my mission.” (“Two for the Road”).

Mikhail Bakunin, when describing the list, said, “The man who brought me here, who brought all of my people here, he is a magnificent man.” (“Par Avion”)
Trivia
General
Jacob’s eye is brown, not the color of Ben’s or Locke’s.
The only words which the audience has heard from Jacob are “Help me”
Jacob is the middle name of Jeffrey Jacob Abrams (J.J. Abrams).
On the DVD commentary track for “The Man Behind the Curtain”, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse described an interesting relationship between Jacob and Ben, which is more of a symbiosis than a master/servant role.
They stated the ash surrounding the cabin was described as a controlling mechanism, such as a “magic circle”.
Jacob’s mysterious introduction as an invisible character with an other-worldly voice was a plot twist.
On the front cover of Lost: The Complete Third Season, the text “Jacob loves you” is visible. Production notes
Jacob was confirmed to be “him” In the 3/20/07 Official Lost Podcast.
There are no official images of Jacob yet.
According to an E! Online interview on May 23rd 2007, in response to the question if the role of Jacob had already been cast, Damon Lindelof stated “False; you do see a guy, but ‘ I’m still sticking to my ‘false’.”
The filming location for Jacob’s cabin in “The Man Behind the Curtain was also used for Eko’s grave.

Ok, so after watching this Onion News video today about the Pervertasuarus, and then discussing lost theories with my friend, I have come to a terrifying conclusion on the part that children play on the island and why they are a reocurring theme and a vital point in the series, yet seem to appear so sparingly.

The Lost island and it’s consituents are part of the super adventure club. They worked closely with it’s creator, and discovered that children contain something called metachlorians (sp?). Metachlorians make humans immortal, and are contained in the body of children (so says the creator of the super adventure club). Why is Richard Alpert ageless? Why is it that Christiand and Locke have new life, and seem to be immortal? They have been buggering kids. That is why the hostiles seemed to kidnap all of the children from the airplane, and seemed to take ethan and Benjamin, assumably among other kids. They gave them to Richard so he could be immortal. Not only this, but why did Christian take Claire in the night? And where the heck did she go. She must be buggered out of her mind by now, and needs some alone time. Thats why Christian shows up everywhere and never goes away, he’s the abnoxcious kind of immortal thanks to innocent claire.
