Eye of Horace

Locke sees Horace to relocate the cabin – so the eye in Jacob’s cabin is ‘Horace’s’. Frankly, I think it looks like “the Wolverine’s”, but if Jacob had 2 tapestry’s and one was the statue and the other was the Eye of Horus, that bit of tapestry meant the cabin and used to identify where ‘he’
would be …

“He” could be Jacob (who just made the tapestry and said “you’ll know where I’ll be”) OR I’m thinkin’ MIB trapped there by ash of his own body, ‘killed’ and burned in an episode not yet seen. And, this form of imprisonment is what Flocke was planning for Jacob at end of Season 5.

Aside: The Eye of Horus is “symbol of protection and royal power from deities” There’s math tied to it, too. Basically 2 to rising negative exponents from 1-6 (1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, 1/64) 2-8-16 are familiar and their corresponding inverse are [from Wikipedia]:

1/4 was represented by sight or the sensation of light, symbolized by the pupil. The pyramid text says: “Perfect is the Eye of Horus. I have delivered the Eye of Horus, the shining one, the ornament of the Eye of Ra, the Father of the Gods.”

1/8 was represented by thought, symbolized by the eyebrow. The pyramid text says: “…the Eye of Horus hath made me holy…I will hide myself among you, O ye stars which are imperishable. My brow is the brow of Ra.”

1/16 was represented by hearing, symbolized by the left side of the eye in the form of an arrow pointing towards the ear. The pyramid text says: “That which has been shut fast/dead hath been opened by the command of the Eye of Horus, which hath delivered me. Established are the beauties on the forehead of Ra.”

Which makes me wonder, could MIB be the inverse of Jacob wrt numbers?

Always wondered if Horace’s presence at Ben’s birth was just a coincidence …

3 days! I might be able to hold my breath that long.
