LOST Theories - DarkUFO

Prime Factors of Lost numbers... by Kerim Kazgan

God used prime numbers to create the universe….
I have a feeling that Lost creators used this theory to establish a numerological mystery into the series (or they were not aware of it :))

Firstly let me introduce myself; I am a Finance Executive somewhat obsessed with numbers and an amateur numerologist.

We all know that Lost Numbers add up to 108…..

4 8 15 16 23 42

Let’s factor these numbers to their primes….

2*2 2*2*2 3*5 2*2*2*2 23 2*3*7

Let’s now factor 108 to its primes:


In short:

2^2 *3^3

23 is the only prime number of the 6 LOST numbers. In addition 2 and 3 are the building blocks of 108 as well.

Let’s do something else:

We will now add all the individual digits of LOST numbers:


Let’s factor 36 into its primes now:


It is all about 2’s and 3’s in the LOST Numbers……

Let’s look at what 2 and 3 represent as letters in Alphabet…..
B and C….

May be yes, may be something happened in 23 BC…….
Or May(the 5th month; 2+3!!) 23rd is when all will come to an end…. :)

2 and 3 are only in another Lost number’s factors which is 42.

From Wikipedia:
There are 42 principles of Ma'at, the Ancient Egyptian (LOST connection :)) personification of physical and moral law, order, and truth. In the judgement scene described in the Egyptian and the Book of the Coming/Going Forth by Day (the Book of the Dead (which evolved from the Coffin Texts and the Pyramid Texts)), there are 42 gods and goddesses of Egypt, personifying the principles of Ma'at, who ask questions of the departed, while Thoth records the answers, and the deceased's heart is weighed against the feather of Truth (Ma'at). These 42 correspond to the 42 Nomes (Governmental Units) of Egypt. If the departed successfully answers all 42, s/he becomes an Osiris.

Here is the more interesting truth about 42:

There are 42 possibilities of two dices in a fair throw…..
Let’s try to guess in which game we use the dices???
Backgammon of course……….

I hope I added some flavor to to Lostalgia……
