Crazy theory that I am really hoping I can find after I post!
Written 1st April
OK, there is a lot of dispute about what or who exactly MIB and Jacob are. We really still dont know for sure. Jacobs wine bottle theory sort of points the evil finger at MIB (also, made me think of when Jesus turned water to wine in the Bible and all MIB offers Ricardo is water). What if they are actually the same person.
There’s a few directions you can take that idea. I am coming back to a religious theme but not the usual God vs. Satan. What about God vs. Jesus? Think about it. The God of the Old Testament isnt nice, he is disappointed by men time and time again. He floods the earth, sodom and gomorrah, etc. God in the New Testament, totally different God IMO. He sends his only son, to save the sinners from hell. But even with Jesus’ influence there is still so much war, destruction, chaos, and sin in the world. God has given up on man.
MIB wants to leave the island and after that “whatever happens, happens”. He doesnt care about man and doesnt care if they ultimately destroy themselves or “seast to exist”. Jesus still has hope in mankind, maybe because he was human once? Jacob needs a replacement to protect the world not just the island. MIB cleverly left that out when he was explaining the candidates to Sawyer, instead he only spoke about protecting the island.
So we have possibly one person with polorizing views on man. Not necessarily God and Jesus, thats just a metaphor to explain my theory. MIB says he wants to go home and I am dieing to know where that is and does Jacob have a home aside from the island? Haven’t seen any theories on that yet.
Than I had this idea about the real Locke’s body suddenly missing and he is found reanimated by Jacob. However, if that were possible than why hasnt Jacob done so yet? Also, there is dispute on whether or not Jacob can change form. Shape shifting seems to be more of an evil power, the serpent/devil in Adam and Eve story comes to mind.
Seems lots of you out there are better writers, thinkers, and probably spend a lot of time rewatching past episodes. I dont have the time for that. So I welcome correction, criticism, and anything else you wanna throw me.
