I periodically check the site to see if anyone is posting as although LOST is over, we are not over LOST. I knew someone would eventually post something and happy you did. I find your theory very interesting and is certainly full of things to mull over. I am currently rewatching the 6th season, so I will be keeping your post in mind as I watch. It will make the viewing much more interesting as I take your thoughts into consideration.

I couldn’t have done it without the help of A. Hughes on Amazon, by introducing the theory that the light is the “archive”… I had to copy and repost my revelation here. Thoughts?

A. Hughes, you just set my mind on fire! Here comes a long one!

“The Island is advanced technology, alive in a way, that requires a human control.”

I like this. I also like what you said about the light. It is the “archive” as you put it. The source. There really is no better way to put it then that…

Alot of people think that MIB became the smoke, but that is not the case. The smoke was always the smoke, the smoke could puppet the images of MIB because he was basically “archived” memory. (Think of the light as a “flash” that captures a picture of your whole life once you die…) every little flash in that giant ball of light belongs to someone different. For the most part each flash is only accesible to the person it belongs to…
i.e. Jacks flash is only available in Jacks memory… (unless you happen to be “special” but I’ll get to that)

This makes the ending ESSENTIAL Jack and Co. walking into that light at the end signifies that they were in the light all along (“There is no time here, Jack”) The “flash-foward” memories exist because the source holds each characters memories up to the point when they die. Just as our natural minds can access the past through the archives of our own memory, the light allows our memory to remember our entire lives, even into the future, from our birth until our death as long as we choose to go into the light in the end. (Choose is the key word) This is why babies born on the island or people who are “special” are also considered dangerous. They have a supreme connection to everyone in the archive.

(A. Hughes I do not think that the Sideways world is in the light, I think that the sideways is the memory of real life after the bomb. It is still archived memory in the light, not an artificial world… The losties have archived their original memories, as well as their sideways ones… this is why some characters ASPIRE to be stuck in the loop, it presents them with an expanded archive, through multiple lives…)

The smoke has the power to intercept these memories from the light if the light is not protected. One could say that the old lady’s belief of “not going into the light” could be because of the position she holds. Her one-ness with the island. It is too much knowledge to pass on into the light. She does not want to risk the memories being accesible to the smoke, let alone being STOLEN by the smoke. She has the special, all access pass. It was her choice in the end not to pass her knowledge on. Resulting in her archived memory being nothing more than questions.

The fact that losties can remember into the future “flash-foward” had signified that at some point in the future, they would all go into the light. To do that they would need to be on the island. This is why Jack was NOT supposed to LEAAVE, and why he NEEDED TO GO BACK! If Jack did not go into the light in the end, he would not have had the tools to pass the knowledge on that was essential to his victory.

So think about Across the Sea. The old lady knows that at a certain point she will die. She has played the game, played by the rules. She knows she needs a replacement and along come those twins. It is her only hope. Even her ability to see ahead does not allow her to manipulate time travel, because she does not have knowledge of “time travel” because she dies before a time when those ideas are even conceptual. When she died, 1977 and Dharma were a long way off…

In 2007, Jacob dies, and once it happens Jacob will become connected with himself throughout his entire life. Jacob and MIB (the smoke) could see it in 1865, on that beach, once it happened in 2007. Jacob knew in 1865 that he would be outlived by the smoke, and the smoke knew it too. That is why Jacob knew that he needed a replacement…

Now, since time works fowards and backwards up until 2007 in Jacobs memory, that gives Jacob plenty of time to figure out a way to manipulate the information he has archived enough to make the Black Rock appear on the beach by the next morning. It won’t be until 1977 that he can change the natural course of events, but once he figures it out (through Dharma) All he has to do is move around time a little bit, and pull some strings. As secretly as possible of course, since MIB can see everything in the archive as well, not to mention the memories that he has stolen from the light.

So, how do you keep a secret out of the archive?
You shut off the light.

What is crucial here is that the smoke always believed that he would kill Jack, afterall, he guts Jack in the kill spot, deep and fast…there is blood and everything… but Jack was still not supposed to die yet. (remember all of those guns that wouldn’t go off?) The smoke cannot remember what happens after he stabs Jack.

Remember that the smoke WANTED to turn off the light. He thinks that by turning off the light the island was left to sink and that the light stayed off forever, and that he would escape off the grid. The island would never be able to find him, and would essentially sink into the ocean.

But really the smoke was defeated. Off the grid. The real reason smoke doesn’t remember that the light goes back on, is because he is already dead.

So then, the light goes back on, life goes on, and when it doesn’t anymore, the losties go into the light, thus completing the circle. THE END.

Well they answered (close enough I’ll take what I can get) some questions and even make it seem like they’re gonna keep this thing going a bit. I do appreciate that effort.

[quote comment="376034"]I am really curious as to what your experience was like reading this blog w/o watching the show? How much sense did what was being said on here make? Some of the comments (i.e. smoke monster) must have sounded just crazy. Without being passionately vested in these characters…did you really care about what was being said about them? I just can’t imagine reading this blog (which I love) and not watching the show. I agree w/most of what you said, except that you could have not watched it week to week, for 6 years. Don’t forget, there was also season to season. Try to imagine waiting all those months for it to pick up again! I have watched the series all the way through each summer, up to the point of the current years season and really found it more rewarding watching it week to week. You got to really think through each episode and read the blogs each week to see what others were thinking and theorizing. It made for an interesting experience for 6 years and I would not have missed it for anything![/quote]

Well, I actually read this blog WHILE watching the show. It took us just about all summer, about three months, and I never wanted to be spoiled, so I started reading each episode feedback after watching the episodes. Even though the comments were written years before, I still felt part of a community, trying to figure out everything even though everyone’s idea were out-dated :)

It was a great bonding experience to be able to see other people’s ideas and look back in retrospect to see all those people who were correct! As for waiting six years and those LONG summers…I honestly couldn’t have done it. I could barely stand the time it took for us to switch Netflix discs between seasons, haha. I bow to your patience and strength!

Ultimately, I do understand both sides of the argument that the show ended perfectly and horribly – I will admit that I agree with former. Yes, there are unanswered questions, most of which I find to be dumb and not necessary anyway, but I feel it doesn’t matter. It’s interesting that people feel gipped that Dharma, Walt, and the Others were essentially unimportant in the grand scheme of things, but I must admit that Season 2, full of nothing but pushing that button in the hatch is my favorite. The themes of faith vs. reason, destiny vs. free will, and salvation through redemption were really what drove the show – everyone ended up who they were MEANT to be with.

I love all the theories (…well, most of them) on here and it’s great to hear that people are still talking about this show. There were definitely faults about the show (the entire first half of Season 3 was just awful) and it’s clear that they set things up that never pulled through (Walt, Aaron?), but at the end of the day, you can use the themes of the show to answer the fact that – yeah, Walt was special, but he was not the only one that was special. The island let him go because it had other people working for it. Aaron had to be raised by Claire because that’s what the island wanted. When he wasn’t raised by her, ie. when Kate took him off the island, that wasn’t what was supposed to happen. Those people were never meant to get off the island – they were meant to be there and fight for the goodness of the light on the island and always meet each other.

I only hope the bitter people who claim that the finale ruined their entire television experience (overdramatic, but several on here have said that…), just think: did it really? Regardless if the show ended the way you wanted it or not, you have to admit that you were at least moved by SOMETHING or SOMEONE on the show. In the end, it wasn’t for nothing. You got something out of it along those six years, whether you know it or not.
