    word @bright light. You’ve been a great contributor here as well, both on the details and ideas side and in terms of having the right kind of spirit or outlook

  2. lycanthropist Says:

    Yeh I have to agree with Mr. C here
    Desmond was only shown the other world, not necessarily its true nature.

    And I don’t think Island Desmond had full awareness of everything that went down in the Sideways world

  3. lycanthropist Says:

    And I too would like to echo bright light for a moment.

    I want to express much gratitude to Miner for opening this thread for the BB Lost fans. Just a further extension of the excellent community that you have created here.

    Not only is phishthoughts an excellent place to discuss my favorite band with positive, yet critical minds; it has become the most positive place I have found to discuss LOST too.

    There were many fine contributors to the LOST threads, and theories unique to this site, which is hard to find in the uber fandom that is LOST.

    It has been a real pleasure to contribute here for myself on a subject that I am very fond of.

    I will miss the next day/week LOST discussions here, but I vote that we continue posting here (or perhaps open a completely new LOST: The Series thread, as we rewatch, have epiphanies, and remember.

    If anything, LOST has taught us that community matters.

  4. Mr. Completely Says:

    what if LOST, the act of watching the show, acts like being on the Island does?

    see you all in another life, brothas

  5. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Mr. C- i would agree with your assessment. He knew that there was a place where he could be w/ Penny and hence, be happy.

    Let’s see that Lost: The Series thread!

    I’m starting to rewatch from season 1 and would love a place to swap theories!

    kind of blew my mind a little bit with that one, Mr C.

  8. gatsbygatsbygreatdog Says:

    Mr. Miner,
    does lostpedia or wiki or anything out there give explanations for why the others have so much money and influence off the island?

  9. Mr.Miner Says:

    I believe The Others are funded by Widmore Corporation (Charles Widmore’s conglomerate) which has alleged ties to Hanso Foundation (which funded Dharna)

  10. Tsac77 Says:

    Well well well…


  11. Tsac77 Says:

    And here’s a vid of Emmerson spilling the beans…


  12. Lycanthropist Says:

    thanks Tsac

    very exciting…
    i was gonna buy the blu-ray boxset anyway now i have something else to look forawrd to 🙂

  13. Mr. Completely Says:

    I’ve seen this news a couple other places too. I think it’s simply true. According to the other sources it will be available on the Season 6 DVD set so you won’t have to redundantly buy the ginormous box if you already have earlier seasons on DVD, or just watch it on YouTube.

    You could easily frame a whole second series around this idea – since Hurley sees dead people, and they can clearly go off island (Jacob did as #1, and so did Ben and Richard in their roles) they could plausibly interact with anyone.

    Is this a good idea? Probably not, unless at least one of the Lindelof/Cuse duo was involved. But it’s far from impossible. I bet it at least gets pitched.

  14. Lycanthropist Says:

    ok so i was bored and wanted to draw some Phish parallels

    Im sure I have missed some, but this was fun

  15. Lycanthropist Says:

    ^ thanks to NTM for the idea

  16. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    that’s a good list right there, lycan. not that you are looking for it, but I approve!

  17. sanchothehutt Says:

    Hey all, been too busy lately to post, but am catching up.

    I’ve been reading the debate b/w Andy and seemingly everyone else on here, and have to say I agree with “everyone.”

    “that was the point of Jack’s WHOLE story arc, was to realize that fixing things is meaningless if you don’t open up to real relationships that have meaning.

    in a sense they were saving the world, and what makes the world worth saving is the personal relationships of love and friendship.”

    Way to nail it, Lycan. You put into two sentences exactly what I believe they spent 6 seasons telling us. Kudos, brother.

  18. sanchothehutt Says:

    ^not to bring you all back into that debate, I just needed to chime in since it went on for so many pages 🙂

  19. sanchothehutt Says:

    “Not only is phishthoughts an excellent place to discuss my favorite band with positive, yet critical minds; it has become the most positive place I have found to discuss LOST too.”

    Amen, Lycan. I love how in the convo I referenced above, that as divergent as the opinions are, people here are above name calling (aside from that one dude) and virtual shouting matches. In the end, we all share the same passion for Phish, Lost, etc, even when our interpretations of both can vary to the degree they do. I’m very thankful for this space, and for Phish coming back so I could discover it last year.

    I was watching G4, attack of the show when Michael emerson said that about the DVD!! soooo f’n cool… Michael looked a little scared after he said it and Kevin, the host, asked how much trouble he would end up in for leaking it, classic. I was sooo tired when I watched at 4am east coast time that I thought I had misheard….so glad I didn’t!

  21. gatsbygatsbygreatdog Says:

    Walt’s story will be resolved in that section too supposedly

  22. sanchothehutt Says:

    Did any of you ever find/come up with an explanation of David that makes any sense? or Island sense, i guess.

  23. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    watched the finale again last night and practically bawled my eyes out. something about this episode just nails me. very affecting. couldn’t even sleep afterward just thinking about the conceptual aspects of the story that all came together. truly sublime stuff.

  24. Lycanthropist Says:

    David doesnt need to be explained

    he is just part of the in-between existence that their collective conscious made.

    David served as a tool for Jack to let go of his father issues.

  25. Mr.Miner Says:

    ^yup, once again Lycan nails it.
