Lost Update – Book Of The Month Club

Lost Update Season IV 03/27/2008
With the writers strike still showing ill effects to ABC Lost season IV, new episodes won’t air until April 24th. But fear not loyal Lost fans. The Grassy Knoll Institute has several issues to debate beginning with “The Book of The Month Club” episode. You remember the one where a group of the “Others” are gathered at Juliet’s home to discuss a new novel. This is where the Time Travel, Time Portal, Time Stands Still, Time In A Bottle, and Time Enough At Last theories come into play.
Here’s the Grassy Knoll Institutes theory on the Book Of The Month episode.
Take a good look at the picture above of the book of the month club meeting. See the woman facing Juliet with her back to us? The one in the blue dress with auburn red hair! Her name is Amelia. As in Earhart. Amelia Earhart. The female pilot lost at sea in July of 1937. Earhart was attempting to be the first woman to fly around the world and was a mere 7000 miles from her mission when her radio went silent in the Pacific ocean close to Howland Island.
Yes Lost fans, here is yet another coincidence or perhaps the real truth of what is really happening on Lost. Amelia Earhart crashed landed on the Lost island way back in 1937 and joined the ranks of the “Others” that had found themselves lost as well.
A little back story to prove the theory. At 12:30 p.m. on July 2, 1937, Earhart and her navigator Noonan took off from Lae island with a heading toward Howland island. Despite a favorable weather report, they flew into overcast skies and intermittent rain showers. This confused navigator Noonan’s method of tracking making it very difficult to pinpoint their position. As morning approached, Earhart radioed Leo G. Bellarts of the Itasca and asked for the correct coordinates. Earhart failed to report in at the next scheduled time, and for the rest of her check ins her radio transmissions were irregular at best.
When she did make contact, the calls were faint or interrupted with static. At 7:42 A.M. the Itasca, (The United states Coast Guard ship assigned to assist Earhart in the Pacific) picked up the following message, “We must be on you, but we cannot see you. Fuel is running low. Been unable to reach you by radio. We are flying at 1,000 feet.” The Itasca immediately replied but received only silence and static. At 8:45 Earhart reported, “We are running north and south.” Nothing further was heard from Earhart. And the legend of Amelia Earhart was born.
Lets look at the last several transmissions of Earhart’s ill fated flight. She and her navigator were confused, lost, thinking they were upon the island but could not see land. They also did not get any response from the island or the ship sent to assist her.
This sounds an awful like what the freighter was experiencing in trying to find the Lost island. Farady’s experiment on time lapses from the freighter to the island also play a part here. With such a time lapse, Earhart couldn’t hear what the Itasca was transmitting receiving only static and silence.
The largest search and rescue operation of it’s time was implemented but no wreckage or bodies were ever found. Even to this day, after countless private ventures in finding the famed plane Earhart’s disappearance remains a mystery.
What do you they of this theory so far? Good! Now have a look at the official photo below of Amelia Earhart. Please take note of the same style of dress both women wear in the Lost photo and the Earhart photo. Almost identical garb. Coincidence? I think not.
If the Lost island can somehow distort time making it invisible, then perhaps it can also slow or eliminate aging once on the island. I use Richard as a base for this theory. It appears that Richard hasn’t aged a day in some three decades on the island. When Earhart crashed landed, perhaps her aging slowed down as well and has been living on the island since 1937. After all, the Black Rock ship was from the 1800′s and crashed ashore. Perhaps those castaways are also still alive and well on the island and we haven’t met them just yet.
But wait a minute, what about Ben? He has clearly aged. He came to the island with his father as a little boy and is now at least in his 40′s. For everyone else, it is hard to determine if anyone else has aged. Even Danielle, the French woman, and Alex’s mother, doesn’t seem to have aged after spending 16 years alone on the island.
Maybe they only age when they leave the island. Maybe that’s why they stay. Immortality. But what about Ben? Well, when he came to the island, he was a boy, and perhaps the aging process doesn’t begin until the children reach adulthood. Perhaps that is why all the children on Flight 815 were taken.
Could it be that after 10 years, a young Ben, now an adult left the island, began aging, and returned again years later and older to to once again possess the fountain of youth. Perhaps that is when Richard made Ben the leader, after returning to the island.
The rest we all know. Now it’s your turn to agree or disagree.
PS: I should have startling evidence of a new Lost theory concerning the “Foot Statue” early next week. My apologies for not getting it posted sooner. Business travel has slowed down my investigation to a crawl but I am now pouring over the evidence and photo’s and will update as soon as I can.
Until next week, GET LOST!
