Is the ARG focusing on Jupiter?

All signs point up… towards Jupiter that is. As I learn more and more about the various tests participants can take, I am starting to get a focus in on the important of Jupiter. For starters, there were 8 separate tests that participants could take and I remember 6 of their names:

Amalthea, Callisto, Europa, Ganymede, Himalia and Io.

Now each of these is also based in Greek mythology.

Amalthea was a nurturing foster mother to Zeus and she is connected to the modern day cornucopia due to her horn which was shaped like a cornucopia.

Callisto was a lover of Zeus who was turned into a bear because of her secret love with Zeus.  Zeus seduced Callisto by transforming himself into Apollo.

Europa was a woman of high lineage who which Europe was named after. She represented a lunar cow.

Ganymede was a divine hero from Troad which is now modern day Turkey. He was the cup bearer to the gods.

Himalia was a nymph who bore Zeus three sons.

Io was a priestess of Hera in Argos (A city in Greece). Zeus seduced her as well and turned her into a cow to save her.

If you find any more details that relate to LOST let me know in the comments.

    Love it! What a wonderful connection to the planet Jupiter. Using all the names used for its moons. But I draw a blank when trying to come up with a theory for Dharma and Jupiter.

  • ManilaRaf

    Jupiter is the Roman version of the Greek God Zeus.

    Perhaps Dharma is looking for specialists to decode & understand the ancient (Greek) civilization that was on the island previously? The ones that built the four toed statue, the frozen donkey wheel, among other stuff?

    Wait, what if it really is Jupiter and not Zeus? I mean one of the people who took the exam, and was interviewed by The Transmission’s Ryan Ozawa, said that there were Latin words being said in between questions on the OGR/DI exam.

    Maybe it was Romans on the Island and not the Greeks.

    That may be the start of an explanation to ol’ Four-Toe.

    Hello all, how about a stab in the dark for fun?

    After all my research on the Lostian science mythos, I’ve had more than several dozen ideas in my head at various times. Here is one to chew on about Jupiter.

    4 of Jupiter’s moons (these are all listed) exhibit orbital resonance.
    otherwise know as Laplace resonance.

    Laplace as in Pierre Simon Laplace.

    As in the Laplace Demon. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laplace%27s_demon

    In the history of science, Laplace’s demon is a hypothetical “demon” envisioned in 1814 by Pierre-Simon Laplace such that if it knew the precise location and momentum of every atom in the universe then it could use Newton’s laws to reveal the entire course of cosmic events, past and future.

    Tied to the Valenzetti equation?

    Hell, it’s something to chew on at the least.
