LOST
Just watched the final episode of Lost -- Holy occult symbolism!

The whole series was filled with it and by all means I'm a layman when it comes to the occult. The final episode was rife with them.

I'll give y'all a chance to watch it first and I don't want to post spoilers (just yet) but the show or at least the series finale needs to be picked apart. I figured ConCen would be a good place to delve into this and surely there is a 'Lostee' or 2 among us. Piece it together make our case and spam all the lost boards with a nice summary once we're through.

I'll chime in soon - give me ~48 hours to put together some screenies and text for my initial release.
Here's a little something to get the ball rolling:

Oceanic Flight 815 was the plane that crashed

Since time is different pending your whereabouts in the world and certain events flow into eachother or a deal is signed the day before and then put into motion within the next 24 hours so I looked into August 16th as well -- quite a day..

RE: LOST
Actually, in the show, there were planes in both places... it was just that one wasn't the plane they claimed it was... the symbolism actually gives more weight to the concept that the planes that hit the towers were not the planes everyone thought they were... not that there were no planes at all!

I think any of it is stretching, and I think its kind of absurd that you'd think they were giving reference to you in their script at all... but then again, you're a no-planer, and that's to be expected Icon_biggrin
btw, I watched it, but I was drunk, so I'll have to get back to you about the occult symbolism. I have to say though, I was disappointed... It was a pretty corny ending.

I think nik was referring to the 911 planes, or some of them being flown into the Atlantic while remotely controlled airliners (since they had the plans and the capabilities since the 50s or 60s) or remote plane looking bombs did the dirty deed.

They liked to put books in the show, including that title which showed up in S2E03.

   

Haroun and the Sea of Stories

We see Desmond reading this book.

Haroun and the Sea of Stories is a 1990 children's book by Salman Rushdie. It was Rushdie's first novel after The Satanic Verses. It is a phantasmagorical story set in a city so old and ruinous that it has forgotten its name.

Haroun and the Sea of Stories is an allegory for several problems existing in society today, especially in India and the Indian subcontinent. It looks at these problems from the viewpoint of the young protagonist Haroun. It is also interesting to note that Rushdie dedicated this book to his son, Zafar Rushdie, from whom he was separated for some time.

Fear and Trembling
Found in a backpack in the cave outside the Temple. ("LA X, Parts 1 & 2")

Fear and Trembling (original Danish title: Frygt og Bæven) is an influential philosophical work by Søren Kierkegaard, published in 1843 under the pseudonym Johannes de silentio (John the Silent). The title is a reference to a line from Philippians 2:12, "...continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling."

Fear and Trembling presents a highly original and provocative interpretation of the Binding of Isaac story as told in Genesis Chapter 22, and uses the story as an occasion to discuss fundamental issues in moral philosophy and the philosophy of religion, such as the nature of God and faith, faith's relationship with ethics and morality, and the difficulty of being authentically religious

Everything That Rises Must Converge
Everything That Rises Must Converge is a collection of short stories written by Flannery O'Connor during her final illness. The title of the collection and of the short story is taken from a passage from the work of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.The collection was published posthumously in 1965. It includes an introduction by Robert Fitzgerald, and nine stories

A Separate Reality
A Separate Reality is an allegedly non-fictional book written by anthropologist/author Carlos Castaneda in 1971 concerning the events that took place during an apprenticeship he claimed to have served with a self-proclaimed Yaqui Indian Sorcerer, Don Juan Matus, between 1968 and 1971. The authenticity of the book, along with the rest of Castaneda's series, has been a topic of debate since they were published.

In the book Castaneda continues his description of his apprenticeship under the tutelage of Don Juan, from which he had withdrawn in 1965. As in his previous book, The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge, Castaneda describes the experiences he has with Don Juan while under the influence of the psychotropic plants that Don Juan offered him, peyote (Lophophora williamsii) and a smokable mixture of what Castaneda believed to be, among other plants, dried mushroom of the genus Psilocybe. The main focus of the book centered around Don Juan's attempts at getting Carlos to See, a practice best described as, in Castaneda's own words, "perceiving energy directly as it flows through the universe".

Manservant and Maidservant
Reference: In the season 4 finale (There's No Place Like Home: pt.2/3), when Kate has a dream that someone is in Aaron's room (it turns out to be Claire), she grabs her gun that is laying on top of a book in her drawer.

At once the strangest and most marvelous of Ivy Compton-Burnett's fictions, Manservant and Maidservant has for its subject the domestic life of Horace Lamb, sadist, skinflint, and tyrant. But it is when Horace undergoes an altogether unforeseeable change of heart that the real difficulties begin. Is the repentant master a victim along with the former slave? And how can anyone endure the memory of the wrongs that have been done?" Says Edward Sackville-West about the book, 'Apart from physical violence and starvation, there is no feature of the totalitarian regime which has not its counterpart in the atrocious families depicted in these novels.

The Survivors of the Chancellor
Reference: Regina was reading this outside the room where Sayid and Desmond were.
The Survivors of the Chancellor: Diary of J. R. Kazallon, Passenger (French: Le Chancellor: Journal du passager J.-R. Kazallon) is an 1875 novel written by Jules Verne about the final voyage of a British sailing vessel, the Chancellor, told from the perspective of one of its passengers (in the form of a diary).

They also make a number of Star Wars references, particularity by Hurley. Sawyer mentions Lord of the Flies a couple of times too.

Source: http://lostbooks.blogspot.com/

They also cited influences by naming characters after people they admired. Using names such as Faraday (Daniel), Hume (Desmond), Locke (John) etc..

There is also links between the names and character they personified

Charlie Pace - Charlie is slang for Heroin

James "Sawyer" Ford - James Ford was a US outlaw dubbed as Satan's Ferryman

Sayid Jarrah - Ziad Samir Jarrah was named by the FBI as being the pilot-hijacker of the Flight 93 which crashed in Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001.

John Locke - John Locke is also a literary/historical reference, an English philosopher who influenced the ideas of the Declaration of Independence. He believed that "all knowledge is derived from sensory experience."

Ana-Lucia Cortez - Cortez is another historical reference: Spanish conqueror of Mexico-killed many of the indiginous peoples (Mayans & Aztecs).

Rousseau - Jean-Jacques Rousseau was an important philosopher who believed that "man is essentially good, a 'noble savage' when in the 'state of nature'

RE: LOST
The last episode was full of the occult symbolism. Watch it to see what you can pick out. Like I said I didn't want to chime in on it until people had a chance to take it in.

Though I found the series enjoyable for the most part minus the emotional > trauma based messaging the final episode disgusted me in the way they were pushing messages via the occult that was laid down all throughout the series. It wasn't even fun to watch really.

Here are the geeks at the helm.

   
There are 3 credited writers for the entire series though that include J.J. Abrams (Cloverfield, Fringe, Alias, Mission Impossible 4 and an Untitled Star Trek Sequel coming in 2012), Damon Lindelof (Ollie Klublershturf vs the Nazis, Cowboys & Aliens and the Star Trek Sequel) and Jeffrey Lieber (Not depicted above, Only 8 episodes of Miami Medical but was the original creator of lost - he was muscled out by the others).

Here they all are in more civil times http://www.exposay.com/celebrity-photos/jeffrey-lieber-jimmy-fallon-and-damon-1lWRgz.jpg


If you want some occult injected back into this thread though, I'll throw you a bone.

Quote:The Numbers

The numbers 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, and 42 appear throughout the series, both in sequence and individually. The numbers add up to 108, another common number in the series. For example it is said that the oceanic six left the island after 108 days. Also, the button in the hatch had to be pushed every 108 minutes.

According to the DHARMA Orientation video in the Lost Experience, the Numbers represent the factors of the Valenzetti Equation, which claims to accurately predict when humanity will be extinguished. A part of the plot is based on certain characters using the numbers to constitute a code that must be entered in a terminal. The writers originally introduced the numbers solely to engineer a meeting between two characters, Hurley and Rousseau, not because they had a plan for them, but due to viewer feedback, they were implemented into a greater part of the story.[7]

The numbers are introduced early in season 1. They were broadcast from the Island's radio transmitter as this message that drew Rousseau's expedition there. Although Rousseau changed the message after the deaths of the rest of her team, the transmission is heard by others off the Island, eventually making their way to Hurley. Hurley uses the numbers to win a lottery before the crash, which brings those around him nothing but misfortune. Another character experienced similar misfortune to others, and eventually killed himself. Because of this, Hurley believes the numbers are cursed. In the alternate timeline created in the sixth season, Hurley has still won the lottery, but instead considers himself the luckiest man alive.

In the season five episode "Some Like It Hoth", members of the Dharma Initiative are shown as they are building the hatch which the survivors would later live in. As they are preparing to place the door on the hatch, a worker asks for the serial number to put on the door. Another worker responds by telling him the numbers, which are inscribed on the hatch door. These numbers are later seen by some of the survivors.

The numbers are seen in various occasions in different places during the series. In season 6 a part of the plot associates each number with a different character, each a candidate, according to the Man in Black, destined to become the new 'protector of the Island' in Jacob's place.

When Jacob guides Hurley and Jack to the lighthouse, each of the numbers is shown to correspond to a degree on the positioning dial. When set to a specific name, the mirrors reflect an image associated with that person. Jack, frustrated by the implications of this, destroys the mirrors, which Jacob had anticipated.

The first reference to the numbers could be seen from the name of the flight that crashed to the Island; Oceanic 815. It has two of the numbers, 8 and 15, in the same order they are listed in the numbers and when they are added together equal 23.

The numbers 23 and 42 also play important roles in other sci-fi works, which could be part of the reason for their inclusion. 23 is the number of the Illuminati in works by Robert Anton Wilson and Robert Shea. 42 is the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series.

RE: LOST
Stefan Molyneux's philosophical take on LOST.

Quote:The Truth Behind 'Lost' - A Philosophical Review



stefbot — 25 May 2010 — Stefan Molyneux, host of Freedomain Radio, peels back the philosophical layers behind one of the most successful television shows of all time...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVG2qkXO4xU
Great analysis on the overlying themes. Occult numerology and symbolism along with cultural references were peppered throughout but Stephan got past that to the underlying themes rather than get focus on them. The invisible hand that seeks to control the herd is that of faith -- whether it be in organized religion, politics and group-think cultural pressures and influence. The show advocated and gave credence to these unseen forces and suggested we blindly follow and accept them as reality. He accurately deemed this as what it truly is, group psychosis, which parallels a lot of thinking going on today as a result of ideology taking precedence over philosophy.

RE: LOST
Actually lost aired on ABC not CBS.

I've been into numerology for a while and I couldn't help but notice the number 23 everywhere in the show. Watch the series and look for it. 23 was the degree on the compass that pointed to Jack. They board the plane through gate 23. Jack's seat on the plane is 23. There is a room on the island where the darma people carry out MK ultra type mind control experiments on people. It is called room 23. In the last episode they're sitting at a table with a number 23 on it. At one point most of the characters are back in the real world working for Charles Widmore. He hands one of them a cell phone and tells him if he needs to get a hold of him to just dial 23. WTF is up with that? I wasn't aware that was a phone number.

If I wanted to sit and think about it for a while there's a lot more 23's.

Well colour me ignorant Blush

I don't have cable so we'll let that oversight pass.

@John Doe 1984
You read my mind. My next bump post on a #23 elaboration. Glad you pointed out all those examples -- and few more instances I didn't notice.

In the final episode they end up at a multi-denominational church (one world religion?) where everyone is reunited. Wait, not everyone. There is a noticeable lack of representation of the black folk. No Echo, No Michael no little Walt. That constitutes all of the black males on the show. The church represented heaven. So does that mean all black men can't get with the white light and go to the dark underworld, purgatory or the land of fire and brimstone? Maybe the skinny white Jewish writers just don't like black guys. h8rz.
