LOST Theories - DarkUFO

Here is a link to important quotes from Philip Dick. A writer of a fiction book that was actually featured in the show. His theories were in various journals and some important ones were compiled. There are Christian in nature and the writers probably didn't use that part of his interpretations, but the gist of his theory is gnostic (a belief of mystical enlightment as a Higher Power). This concept is further enforced when Jacob is reading All That Rises Must Converge which is based on a gnostic concept from Phenomenon of Man by Telhaird de Chardin.


His theories explain the nature of the struggle between Jacob and MIB, how the Losties fit in, and how it may end. The island is a wormhole between the universes where there is no real space/time and is stabilized by exotic matter (real quantum science) created by the high electromagnetic forces). It is the "teaching machine" when Universe 1 is split.

"The psyche of hyperuniverse I sent a micro-form of itself into hyperuniverse II to attempt to heal it. However, hyperuniverse II, being deranged, at once tormented, humiliated, rejected and finally killed the micro-form of the healing psyche of her healthy twin. After that, hyperuniverse II continued to decay into blind, mechanical, purposeless causal processes. It then became the task of to either rescue the life forms in the total universe, or abolish all influences on it emanating from II. Approaching its task with caution, it prepared to kill the deranged twin, since she cannot be healed; i.e. she will not allow herself to be healed because she does not not understand that she is sick. This illness and madness pervades us and makes us idiots living in private, unreal worlds. The original plan of the One can only be realized now by the division of hyperuniverse I into two healthy hyperuniverses, which will transform the hologramatic universe into the successfull teachi! ng machine it was designed to be.

Within time, hyperuniverse II remains alive: But in eternity, where the hyperuniverses exist, she has been killed -- of necessity -- by the healthy twin of hyperuniverse I. The One grieves for this death, since the One loved both twins; therefore the information of the Mind consists of a tragic tale of the death of a woman, the undertones of which generate anguish into all the creatures of the hologrammatic universe without their knowing why. This grief will depart when the healthy twin undergoes mitosis and the 'Kingdom of God' arrives. The machinery for this transformation -- the procession within time from the Age of Iron to the Age of Gold -- is at work now; in eternity it is already accomplished."

He also states that those that try to fight against the "evil side" become part of it- a paradox (because they are performing the same evil"-sound like smokey? and the only way to win is through enlightenment.

"Two realms there are, upper and lower. The upper, derived from hyperuniverse I or Yang, Form I of Parmenides, is sentient and volitional. The lower realm, or Yin, Form II of Parmenides, is mechanical, driven by blind, efficient cause, deterministic and without intelligence, since it emanates from a dead source. In ancient times it was termed 'astral determinism.' Until astral determinism is broken, we are not even aware of it."

The original timeline is Universe II and astral determinism since the Yin is already dead (he is trying to find the loophole to get back but his world is deterministic). The One split Universe 1 and made a "testing ground", the island. Until the Losties are "enlightened" (probably with the help of Desmond). At that point, their consciousness will be enlightened and they will converge with Universe 1. Dharma was somehow aware of the end of Universe II (the only universe as far as they knew) and studied how to try to change if (but since its deterministic and dead already in space-time they cannot). The OTHERS somehow had some enlightenment from being on the island but I'm not sure how the writers interpreted all this theory. I just believe that everything seems eerily similar to the lost theme and story lines.

It should also be noted that the remaining "candidates" numbers (except one) are all numbers in the "magic cube. If you look it up, it is a cube with 3 numbers at each side, and no matter the direction, cross, vertical, diagonal, add up to 42 (a "magic number" often used in history, math, theology, etc. It is the number for KWON. However, I don't think it belongs to SUN or JIN but to the daughter. Remember, no one was able to give birth on the island, and Jin was also sterile, yet, despite the odds, Sun has a girl in Universe II. This will somehow play out at the end. Jack's number is 23. Psalm 23 is called "the Shepard Psalm-the LORD is my SHEPARD". He is meant to be the leader from the beginning of the show to the end. In the beginnning of the show, Jack's father told him he doesn't have what it takes because he cannot fail and live with it. Ultimately he will have to fail by having them not fight (and be consumed by the darkness) and die (in OT of coarse), so that they ca! n live in Universe 1 (with better understanding)

Locke's number 4 often relates to the fourth cause of Aristotle also called the final cause which is teology or "aim or purpose" which is typically a fatalistic view which he has always had. DOn't know how this plays out.

I know this is all hard to comprehend, but I think it was a creative jumpoint for the writers. Many of these themes are covered in various scientific, religious, and philosophical texts, and this show is so clever, in covering so many issues and theories in such an entertaining way. I doubt the show will go to this extent of detail as Philip Dick did, but the general notions will be covered and it makes everything we've seen fall into place.
