Don’t talk about Bacon
I was just gonna wait for someone else to post this, which I’m sure most of us fans who get way into Lost are probably researching right now, but i couldn’t wait…
The conversation between Miles and Lapidus, Lapidus says “Don’t talk about bacon”.Â Francis Bacon was a philosopher, scientist and author.Â I’ll let you do the research on wikipedia, he is famous for the scientific method and is also noted as having “His dedication brought him into a rare historical group of scientists who were killed by their own experiments.”Â Maybe like the Dharma Initiative.
He also wrote a book called New Atlantis, which makes me feel like the writers of Lost are just taking the most obscure books out there and putting them together to make a show.Â But this book has everything, again you can do the research, but here are some key points:
– takes place on an island called Bensalem (the island/my next vacation spot)
– discovered by the crew of a European ship (Black Rock)
– trip was sponsored by a scientific institution (Dharma/Hanso Foundation)
– travelers are quarantined to the “House of Strangers” (temple of the Others?)
