I thought it felt significant when he said, "You broke the rose." It did make me think of her and it wasn't until I read this that I realized she would be kind of f****d if she didn't make it to the island.

I just discovered Lost at the end of season 4, so I never knew about the ARGs. Where would the "game" part come in?

If X is a variable, maybe x stands for b, which would make it LA B => LAB => Vincent?

Has anyone an idea about these pictures?

Has anyone an idea who is shown on these pictures? The second one, the statue could be Homer, but the first????

The picture in the middle reminds me of the Greek Sun symbol.
In every form, the Sun of Vergina symbolized Virginity: Goddess Athena was a Virgin, so this Sun was associated with her. We can also find this symbol associated with Apollo. -All the versions (16,12 and 8-pointed Sun) are associated with another famous Greek symbol, the "Delphian Epsilon", symbol of Apollo:

which reminds me again of the branding of Juliet:

BTW, I don't think that the WAKY thingy is really related to the Paul Sheer kind of game. I guess some guys just had vivacious imaginations! :lol:

LA X

Postby sawyer840 on Mon Aug 10, 2009 9:59 pm

X is a variable and stands for we will not know when they will arrive in LA again and if they ever will arrive LA again!
So it says nothing!

If you change the X to a B it probably would stand for laboratory!

maybe there is a resets for everyone except the losties who were touched by jacob?

i still see a scene with jug head containing the EM and everyone running around trying to fix the matter, building the swan, pouring concrete over the hole, creating the button, and hurley being forced to record the numbers so that no on forgets what they are and that the button needs to be pushed. i digress.

Someone over at LostArgs.com says that the Rose thing is a reference to the Dark Tower books.

Can't believe it's taken me until season 6 to follow an Arg, but better late than never :)

This is really cool stuff and it's getting me super excited for season 6! Since I'm new to this ARG thing I think I will just sit back and let the "old pros" decipher what's going on :blush:

Love the theories and idea's so far.... Keep them coming!

It occurs to me that there are 16 main cast fuselage section survivors (Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Hurley, Locke, Sayid, Charlie, Jin, Sun, Claire, Michael, Walt, Shannon, Boone, Nikki, Paulo)...

If we're to believe from the 6x01 title that there's some kind of a reset planned... and that the plane lands at LAX as planned, could 15 memories be lost, and one not? (Sun perhaps? After all, she somehow failed to vanish from the Ajira flight... although Walt, Claire and Locke have also shown a degree of mysticness...)


From all them, it should be Desmond. I know it doesn’t add up, but he is not tied to space and time anymore.

I was thinking… what if we see all this reset and at the end of the episode the plane lands and we see Desmond waiting for it? LOST.

Also, listening to the recent podcast it seems these things are indeed the real deal. They talked about how carefully they planned the Oceanic commercial (30 years of safety) and remember — last year we got info about the new season a few months before.


Gosh, yeah! And what consequences would a reset have for those left on the Island? Would anyone have survived from 1977? Widmore maybe died, and so never had Penny. That would leave Des waking up to find himself alone with no Penny or baby Charlie :cry:


That would push Desmond to somehow merge the two timelines. I don’t know if anyone survived, but the Swan was obviously never built, if the Comic-Con videos are true.

Another possibility is, as some suggested, LA 2010. We see the survivors in LA in 2010 and they think the reset worked only to find themselves in need to go back to the island again. But that would be another re-used storyline, and I like the one with Desmond better. Would make for a good cliffhanger, IMHO.

Disclaimer: Of course it wouldn’t happen, otherwise we wouldn’t be discussing this. I’m sure it will be something completely unexpected.

In his video, as Paul is looking up at the ABC building, he passes a billboard on his left that has something-.COM on it. I can't seem to stop on a frame that shows what it says. Anybody have an idea?

The fact that he had a Mr Clucks cup, could always just be a little easter egg thrown in there to shake things up...

Or it could be an indication of how big of a fan he is, owning an actual mr cluck cup as memoribilia

Or if you're gonna be enthusiastic about it.... ;)

The fact that he had the cup, could mean that since Hurley's comic-con video proved that his business is now booming and Mr Clucks is more popular than ever due to him owning it and the crash never happening, it has made an impact in the reality that Paul is in (be that ours or in fact 'Alternate').

Of course this is labelled as an ARG - 'Alternate Reality Game', however by the approach he is taking towards everything, you would assume that he is in the same position as and exists in the same 'reality' ie lost is a television show etc etc. But of course with the Ronie anagram (Widmore) assuming that it was intended, the show and our reality is indeed meant to interlink.

------------------------------------------------

The rose in the dumpster HAS to have some significance, and i would bet money on it being a reference to Rose Nadler, unfortunately he broke it, so that has to have some implications aswell.

I think it's a reference to her, because Paul was actually making any reference to the show as he could (Ethan, Sayid etc ) and he wouldn't miss an opportunity to make a reference as obvious as that.

------------------------------------------------

As for the title, I see where people are coming from with all theories, but i've got to go with the idea that the title has been scrapped and it is indeed a red herring to throw us of course YET AGAIN.

Darlton don't like spoilers too much, so I can't see why they'd release them THIS early.

Feel free to argue with me, this is an open book of course, and everything i'm saying could be COMPLETELY WRONG!
But that's the beauty of it :D

That's a billboard advertising Vons.com. Just a normal billboard.
