LOST was about me and my family, and
in March of 2006, I had to shoot my brother in self-defense.
Remember that, from the beginning of production in 2003, LOST's producers gloated that the entire story arc had been pre-determined. Apparently that included the death of Jack, at the very end. Obviously, the entire storyline got screwed-up somewhere along the way.
As for its accuracy, I'd say that LOST was perhaps one-third shockingly accurate, one-third plausible (but not things I really knew anything about), and one-third deliberate propaganda. And when I say "shockingly accurate," I mean someone got ahold of my medical records, and interviewed my childhood friends/family, at the very least. At worst, well, let's just say that having been targeted since birth doesn't seem implausible.
Benjamin, well, that's clearly me. Jack is my uncle. Christian, my grandfather. His name is Donald. (And no one actually believes that he's a Christian, by the way.) Mr. 'Workman', my father. Adam is my cousin. There are at least a couple more. But that's good, for now.
My brother seemed to know about my connection to LOST long before I did. At some point (I believe in 2005 but it could have been earlier), he asked me about "The Wizard of Oz," one of my favorite movies of which I owned a copy. The first reference to "The Wizard of Oz" in LOST was aired in March of 2006, after he died.
Juliet Burke deserves a special mention. From what I can tell, I don't think she is actually based on any particular person. That is, I don't know of any one person who has all (or even most) of her characteristics. I think this character is actually an amalgam of several different people, and ultimately represents a generic 'Juliet' to Benjamin Linus' 'Romeo'. The story of Romeo and Juliet was one of ill-fated lovers in Renaissance northern Italy who were star-crossed for precisely one reason -- drugs. The 'dueling houses' of Montague and Capulet were not just commercial rivals, but competing drug gangs. Shakespeare never says this directly. And I don't believe any of his sources for the story did, either. But it's fairly obvious.
I suppose this is also where I should mention my daughter. I'm actually not sure that I even have (or had) a daughter. But, then again, five years ago I didn't know I had a ranch, either. No one has ever bothered to tell me that I have a daughter. All I know for certain is that some people made a television show that includes an obvious caricature of me, and that character has an "adopted" daughter (given to Linus by Rousseau's social contract, obviously) who is killed by a pie-faced mercenary from Las Vegas. There's also some stuff about a trial and about Benjamin Linus "not knowing" something to do with his daughter. So, perhaps, not knowing that she exists? Not knowing that she is his real daughter? Who knows. If I did have a daughter, and if she looked anything like Tania Raymonde, then there is only one woman who could have been her mother, and I haven't spoken to her since 2005.
I believe that Juliet was merely a "fertility specialist" metaphorically, not literally. Because the only person she seems to have artifically inseminated is herself.
"Hugo, follower of Reyes" and I have only two things in common: we both recognize crisis capitalism when we see it, and we both said, from day one, that Jews Did 9/11.
Johnny Cash has some interesting connections to the "man in black". Cash. Bitcoin. Get it? He released a song in 2002 entitled "The Man Comes Around," featuring his own interpretation of the book of Revelations. It had lines such as "there's a man goin' round taking names" and "the whirlwind is in the thorn trees". LOST.
Let's re-visit the main theme of LOST. As we learn in the end, LOST is about the quest of Jacob to find a suitable "replacement" for himself. The final "candidates" are the characters of Locke, Reyes, Ford, Jarrah, Shephard and Kwon.
But these are just philosophical placeholders. "Jacob" is Jacob Rothschild, and represents central-bank money-printing. He needs a replacement, because eventually people will wake-up to the scam of central banking. And the replacement needs to be capable of offsetting the primary cause of societal evil -- Original Sin, ie. all those people that 'Jacob' keeps bringing to the island.
So the candidates are all widely-practiced philosophies that each have their own ways of dealing with Original Sin. 'Fordism' is obviously industrial mass-production. Hopefully I don't have to explain that. 'Lockeanism' is basically the island itself, ie. an orderly return to the land. This is the reason that Locke shows such a dramatic improvement when brought to the island. In society, he is crippled, but on the land, he is a leader. 'Shepardism' is (shall we say) "guided" Christianity. Jack is a handsome and inspiring leader. It doesn't matter that he never gets anywhere and never accomplishes anything or that most of his ideas are complete nonsense, because people follow him regardless. "Sayid Jarrah" is a follower of Edward Said, who identified construction of "The Other" as a critical component of imperialism, and thus, a solution to the problem of Original Sin. Jarrah was connected with the domestic ethnic persecution of Hussein's Iraq, as a torturer, as well as with the US-led invasion of Iraq which also relied upon imperialist dehumanization and was intimately connected with the money-printing Federal Reserve system. Now, I'm no expert on Eastern philosophy, but 'Kwon' may refer to Samsung CEO Oh-Hyun Kwon, who has some ties to Bitcoin and possibly even to other things discussed on this site.
Linus, open source, is not a candidate. And yet, Linus (open source) is what kills Jacob (central banking), in the end. LOST.
