Here we go.....
Here we go.
My initial theory was that everyone had died on the initial plane crash. Jacob brought them to the island to resolve all their real world problems and be free of them by "growing" on the island. The "purgatory" was the final step in ascending. The problem with that is there are some characters still alive that went into the church. Penny, Ben, Hugo....
After talking with my coworker he said that everything on the island actually happened. Jacob "brought" them there to resolve their issues but were still alive. The "purgatory" was just a waiting area for the rest of them. I have an issue with that theory. Is the "purgatory" in the far far future? The people that were dead were in there, I got that. But, the people alive were in there also.
As Christian Shephard said:
Jack: And everyone else, they're all dead too?
Christian: Everyone dies, Jack. Some before you, some long after you.
Jack: Are they all here now?
Christian: Well, there is no NOW here.
How did the man in black become smoke?
He was thrust into the light and was transformed by it. Pretty dick move by Jacob, already knowing he was giving him a fate worse than death.
What was that statue? I thought it was an egyptian goddess of fertility. (Tawaret) That's why when it was broken the women couldn't have babies.
The creators have come out and said that the Egyptians discovered the Island long ago, and they used it to greatly increase their power.
As for the babies, that was caused by the Incident, that we saw back in the Season 5 finale. The Island's energy went haywire which results in the death of pregnant women.
What were the pockets of Electromagnetism? Were they just part of the island and nothing more?
The origin of that great amount of electromagnetism is the Source. It was the purpose of DHARMA's mission to find it, but they failed.
After the light was restored, why didn't Jack heal?
Why would he?
(statement) Jack never said words to the water for Hugo.
He still passed it on. The words are just procedural.
Time travel on the island. WTF? Never explained.
(statement) Whitmore actually had no role at all in anything.
I'm a bit disappointed with how they handled Widmore in the end. Really he should have been allied with MIB, only to realize in the end what releasing him from the Island would mean. I would have definitely changed up alot of Widmore's storyline in the final two seasons.
(statement) The show never looked back on those two that were buried alive. I was like WTF for a few episodes.
Well, Miles got the diamonds from them in the end, which I'm sure he was pretty excited about when he got back to shore.
The mechanism at the bottom of the Orchid, who built that for the time travel?
The Man in Black, which to be honest I think is kind of stupid.
(statement) The Dharmi Init. had no real role.
In the final season at least.
WTF on the Jughead? It just appeared. I know they said there was testing, but doesn't Jacob allow/reject people coming? Did it actually do anything positive?
Made sure the survivors came to the Island and put a ton of events into motion.
If that was Jacob's plans, why didn't he just do what Desmond and Jack did to the light and kill his brother?
Jacob couldn't do it, and neither could MIB. He couldn't take the cork out without being killed. Desmond was the only possible candidate.
If the island is real... Why were there dead people still on it? (Michael) Could they not move on? I believe this makes my theory more sound.
The Island is basically the gates of hell. If the Island sank and was destroyed, darkness would have consumed the Earth. It's not surprising then that spirits of the dead would hang out in a place like this.
Keep em coming.
