The Lost Book Club: Survivors of the Chancellor

Finally some Jules Verne! This is one of his finest and most creative (as far as narrative structure) literary pieces.  And I thought it was fairly odd that Regina was holding it…until she committed suicide of course.  If you’ve read the book, you know it’s all about the final voyage of a ship called “Chancellor.”  Along the  … Read more

Lost Thoery –  Lost In “The Tempest”

From “The Professor”  comes this awesome bit of comparatives: Another episode, another literary reference, but this time one that Lost fans have long-suspected was connected to the show.  The Tempest has many analogous images with Lost, none more prominent than a vessel (ship, or plane) crash-landing on a mysterious, magical island.  But some insight into the  … Read more

roomforhuman’s madcap theory of the week: The Tempest

What happened to Annie?  I have a theory on that, but it’s a little bit out there.  Then again, what theory have I brought to the table that hasn’t been just a little bit out there?   Ben‘s twisted obsession: Let’s start with Ben‘s fascination with Juliet.  We now know that Juliet resembles a lady  … Read more

Koobie’s Physics Theory – There Might be Side Effects (Part One)

Episode 4.05 “The Constant” really through us for a loop, literally. Desmond’s mind was thrown into a loop that allowed him to jump between two distinct points in the past and present, and the only way that he could stay still is if he held onto a constant. Before we look at what might have caused this, let’s take a look at who else may be affected.

Lost Theory – The Black Rock Journal Auction

Over in the forums, Gusteaux created a thread about the auction and the journal.  Here is his post: The Constant was amazing. There was so much information to digest, disect and discuss that I almost wish the month-long break could fall here. I’d like to focus here on one small scene: the Black Rock Journal  … Read more

roomforhuman’s madcap theory of the week: Jacob’s constant

With all of this consciousness time travel and never dying love going around, I’ve been thinking of the not-so-corporeal Jacob.  And, I am now convinced, or semi-convinced, that Jacob‘s constant is the island.   Let’s say Jacob was affected by the overbearing electromagnetic properties of the island at one point in time.  He would then  … Read more

Lost The Constant – More Physics, or Fodder?

“The Constant” was the most physics saturated episode yet, and not just for the ideas it will stimulate.  Scattered across the various pages of Daniel’s journal, not to mention his chalk boards at Oxford, were dozens of references to actual concepts.  The question is, are there any answers there or is the equivalent of clever  … Read more

Lost Theory Revisited – Pregnancies on the Island

I just rewatched ‘One of Us’ from Season 3.  One of the big island mysteries we were introduced to last season was that no woman that conceives on the island can bring the pregnancy to term.  Sun has been given what amounts to a death sentence by learning that she conceived on the island.  What  … Read more

Lost Theory – Time and the Island (Spoiler Removed!)

 You all know about the Rocket and the 31 minute time difference, so I won’t waste your time recounting the scene here. Instead I’ll just start my ruminations on what that scene implied. The rocket was fired from the Freighter by Regina and it flew to the Island, only to arrive later than expected. It is  … Read more

Koobie’s Physics Theory – 31 Minutes of Lost Time

I think we are finally going to get some definitive answers to how the island actually works with Daniel Faraday on the Island (unless he gets killed, then all bets are off). This week Dr. Faraday did a simple time dilation test, time as it is perceived by two different observers (the rocket and himself).   … Read more
