LOST Theories - DarkUFO

Meaning of the numbers revealed by anon

4 – Locke
5 – Reyes
15 – Ford
16 – Jarrah
23 – Shephard
42 – Kwon

I'm no Christian but I feel the show has had countless biblical references over the course of series.

These numbers could just be yet another reference

take for example Psalm 23 the opening line is The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.


take Psalm 15 LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary?
Who may live on your holy hill?

2 He whose walk is blameless
and who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from his heart

3 and has no slander on his tongue,
who does his neighbor no wrong
and casts no slur on his fellowman,

4 who despises a vile man
but honors those who fear the LORD,
who keeps his oath
even when it hurts,

5 who lends his money without usury
and does not accept a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things
will never be shaken.

Sawyer a con man is neither of these things.

I don't think all the corresponding Psalms mean anything but this is only to demonstrate possible relevance for the numbering.

that is to say the numbers are not a preference ordering of possible candidates - I don't think Jacob would prefer Sayid and Sawyer over say someone like Jack. so the numbers have some other relevance - most obvious is the Valenzetti equation but Jacob - would not use Valenzetti's numbers knowingly - nor is it the reason for why they are on the hatch door. Their common occurence is not coincedental per se but just because the frequently appear in the show it is natural to think that the writers have assigned them some significance and that this will all be revealed eventually - I don't think so this new use of the numbers in the list is just another one of these incidences of the same numbers showing up and the viewers think that in some part the importance of the numbers has been explained.

We welcome relevant, respectful comments.
