A ‘Wallace’ / ‘Wall-less’ journey

Candidate 108 is named Wallace. I believe this individual is crossed-out, but is also the individual Jacob was referring to in the Lighthouse, saying the individual was coming to the island.


I believe this individual is Desmond, who could be referred to as ‘wall-less’ in terms of his ‘abilities’.


Also, the summation of the numbers is 108, which could possibly mean that the combination of the candidates (represented by the numbers) equals (creates) a ‘wall-less’ reality.

What I mean by this is: Nemesis gets the candidates together (sum 108), they fly off in the plane, hit the ‘turbulence’, and the boundaries/walls of reality fall away — and they go from the ‘true’ reality, to the ‘alternate’ reality (similar to how they got to the 1970s).

Thus, their ‘wall-less’ journey.


By getting to the alternate reality, Nemesis escapes the island and is free to roam.

I also believe the ‘true’ reality will fade away if this occurs, thereby ‘ceasing to exist’ per Widmore’s statement.

Widmore knows this — as does Jacob, possibly — and Widmore knows of Desmond’s/Wallace’s ability to move from one reality to another, and somehow wants to use this ability to prevent Nemesis from succeeding.


I know the ‘Wallace’/‘wall-less’ thing may be a bit of a stretch, but…..

Alpert: change the ‘l’ to an ‘i’ (lower case l looks like a capital I), rearrange the letters, and you get = pirate. So…..hints are out there….

The views of space and time that I wish to lay before you have sprung from the soil of experimental physics, and therein lies their strength. They are radical. Henceforth space by itself and time by itself are doomed to fade away into mere shadows, and only a kind of union of the two will preserve an independent reality. Hermann Minkowski
