The Little Prince.

Let's talk about LOST! The Little Prince.

It's night on the Searcher.

Jack looks out onto the water while Kate holds Aaron wrapped in a blue blanket.
Jack whispers “Hey” to Kate, but he doesn’t have to whisper because Kate informs him that when Aaron is out, he’s out.
Jack remarks that at least one of the can sleep. It’s going to take more than two nights for Kate to get used to sleeping in a normal  bed. They have a conversation about what to do about Aaron. Jack did not know Claire was flying to L.A. to give him up for adoption.
Kate comes up with the lie/story about Aaron; she will say Aaron is hers. Kate will say to everyone she was six months pregnant when she was arrested and she gave birth on the island, “No one would ever know.” {Ass!}
Jack tells her there are other ways to do this. Kate feels that after everyone they’ve lost she can’t lose him too.
Jack tells her Sawyer isn’t dead. She concurs, “But he’s gone.”
She says goodnight to Jack.
Jack-“If we’re gonna be safe, if we’re gonna protect the people we left behind, tomorrow morning I’m gonna have to convince everyone to lie. If it’s just me, they’re never gonna go for it. So I’m gonna turn to you first. Are you with me?”
Kate looks into his eyes and replies, “I have always been with you.”


Kate looks in the mirror and adjusts the black outfit she borrowed from Sun.
Sun-“How does it fit?”
Of course, it’s perfect. Sun asks Kate, if she's sure she wants to do this. Kate reminds Sun it was her idea.Aaron wants “mommy” to put ketchup on his eggs. Kate explains to him that she is going to do an errand, then, they can go home. Sun tells Kate not to worry about them, there’s candy in the mini bar, 100 channels on the TV, “We’re going to be just fine here.”
Kate thanks Sun, she doesn’t know what she would have done if she wasn’t there. Sun feels that’s what any friend would do. Kate heads out, “I will be back soon.”
Honey/Aaron will be good for Sun. Sun wishes Kate “Good Luck.”

Derek delivers a large white envelope to Sun.
Sun opens the envelope {Century Grand Hotel. S. Kwon. #3136} it contains surveillance notes {Surveillance Data Investigations, Inc.} and black and white photos of Ben and bearded Jack at the funeral parlor. {White hearse and van} A golden yellow box of candy chocolates conceals a big ass gun under the tray.

Miles fills up a flask with water at the creek and he runs it back to a passed out bloody Charlotte. Juliet checks Charlotte’s
eyes and tries to wake up her up. Sawyer wants to know what the hell’s wrong with her, “She’s been out for 10 minutes.”
Juliet feels if Dan has something to tell her, now is a good time.  Dan doesn’t know what she means. He cleans up Charlotte’s face.
Sawyer interjects, “She wants to know why your girlfriend had a seizure.”
Juliet tells Sawyer to give them some space.
Sawyer feels she’s like that because the sky keeps lighting up and that Dan knew this would happen and he didn’t say squat about it.
Juliet calmly tells James to go away.
Juliet quietly asks Dan if he knew this would happen.
Dan thought it might, “I think it’s neurological. Our brains have an internal clock, a sense of time. The flashesthrow the clock off. It’s like really bad jet lag.” {WTF?! Really?!}
Juliet informs him that really bad jet lag doesn’t make you hemorrhage. She wants him to tell her why this isn’t happening to the rest of them.
Dan doesn’t know, “But thank god it’s not.”

Looking out an office window down at a city street is Kate.   She is there to offer a “deal” to Mr. Norton. She offers to relinquish the blood samples but first she wants to talk to his client. He reveals that he is seeing his client later today so he will pass along her offer, but his client won’t go for any “deals” with her. Kate’s in no position to be making any deals as he has a signed court order compelling her to let them confirm that she’s the child’s mother; he can have the sheriff make her do it.  But his client wants to handle the exchange of custody quietly.   Upset Kate just wants to know who is doing this to her.
Norton- “You did this to yourself.  Now it is time you prepare yourself, Ms. Austen. You are going to lose the boy.”

Juliet is still checking Charlotte’s eyes.
Locke quietly tells Sawyer {he has a gun and knife} that they have to go back to the Orchid. He feels that where all this started, maybe that’s where it will all stop. Sawyer looks at Dan and Juliet; still caring for passed out Charlotte and tells Locke, “That greenhouse is a long ways away.”
Locke suggests they take the zodiac raft and cut around the horn of the Island and get to the Orchid in half the time. Locke doesn’t know exactly at all what to do when they get there but he does know that Ben used it to leave the Island. {Did he?}
Locke believes if he can do the same thing, “I believe I can save us.”
Sawyer asks how is he gonna do that.
Locke, speaking softly, “This is all happening because they left. I think it’ll stop if I can bring them back.”
Sawyer-“Bring who back?”
Locke-“Jack, Sun, Sayid, Hugo, Kate.”
Sawyer tells Locke the boat blew up and that chopper was probably on it.
Locke-“They’re not dead, James.”
Says who?! That doesn’t matter.
Locke- “All that matters is they gotta come backI have to make them come back.  Even if it kills me. {He kind grins when he says that line.} Don’t you want them to come back, James? Don’t you want her to come back?”
Sawyer, being pig headed tells Locke it doesn’t matter what he wants.
Miles announces to them that Charlotte is waking up.
Charlotte wakes up a bit frightened. She doesn’t recognize Dan, “Who are you?
Dan is sad, “It’s me. It’s Daniel.”
Then the bulb in her brain goes on, she remembers him, “My head. What happened?"
Dan tells her there was another flash and she passed out. Charlotte feels a bit dizzy but then tells him, “I’m fine.”
Miles sarcastically says, “Hooray, everything’s back to normal. Now what?”
Sawyer tells them they’re going to the Orchid. Miles watches a bit baffled, as Sawyer takes the lead.

Jack flashes the tiny flashlight into Sayid’s eyesDilation is almost back to normal. {Background voice mentions an oncologist on call in the I.C. U... HA! I see you too!}
Sayid wants the I.V. out of his arm and they can go.
Jack informs him he was unconscious for over 42 hours; he had the equivalent of 3 doses of horse tranquilizers in his system. Sayid is concerned if he sent that man to Hurley’s house, “We have to leave now.”
Jack tells him to relax. “Ben is not going to hurt Hurley. Ben is on our side.”
Come on!... The only side he’s on is his own!
Dr Ariza, the director of clinical services enters to have a word with Jack. {Note poster behind her “ A New Generation”}
Jack tells Sayid he’ll be right back.
Dr. Arzia asks Jack, “What do you think you are doing here?”
Jack explains he was treating a patient; it was an emergency. He apologizes.
She reminds him he was suspended on charges of substance abuse. Emergency or not, he has no business being there. Jack understands and takes full responsibility for his actions.
Dr Arzia tells him the hospital takes full responsibility for his actions and that makes them liable for them.
Jack’s phone rings; it’s Hurley calling him from jail.

Hurley's dressed in an orange jumpsuit, surrounded by other inmates.
Jack smiles knowing its Hurley. Hurley wanted to make sure Sayid got to him; that his dad dropped him off.
Jack lets him know Sayid is with him and he's fine. Hurley is totally cool, “I’m in L.A. County Lockup. And tell Sayid I did exactly what he said. I’m totally safe. Ben’s never gonna get me now.”
Jack asks him what he’s talking about. The call is disconnected.
Ben shows up right at the doorway Jack is standing at.
Ben-“Good! You’re here. How’s Sayid?”

A male nurse enters Sayid’s emergency treatment room, “I got your meds for ya.”
Cautious Sayid tells him he thinks he has the wrong room.
The nurse- “Nope! Room 133. Right?”
He’s got the orders right there. He also tells Sayid not to worry; he won’t need to give him an injection, he’ll just put it in his I.V. line. The nurse turns around, sporting a dart gun ready to fire at Sayid. But Sayid is not in the bed!    The nurse shoots two purple darts. Sayid attacks him and they fight!
Sayid tries to strangle the nurse while asking him “Who are you? Who are you working for?”
Sayid chokes him harder yet wants him to “talk.” The nurse manages to inform Sayid about the address in his pocket.
Sayid breaks from the nurse, grabs the dart gun and shoots two purple darts into him.Sayid searches the nurse’s pockets, tosses the keys, and in his wallet finds the paper with the address on it.
Ben and Jack barge in! Oh Shit! Friendly Ben says hello to Sayid. Jack asks what happened.
Sayid- “Do we know anyone who lives at 42 Panorama Crest?”
Jack reveals that’s Kate’s address.

Worried Jack exits the elevator; dialing up Kate on his cell. Kate answers. {“Flashing lights” on ambulance}
Jack asks if she’s OK; is she at home. He will explain everything, “once you’re out, you gotta get Aaron…”
Kate reveals she’s not at home and Aaron’s at a hotel with Sun.
Kate is sitting in her car.{Staking out Mr. Norton.}
Jack-“Sun? Sun’s in L.A.” {Listen to that!}
Kate shares that Sun’s there on business. “Jack, this really isn’t a good time. I’m so sorry that I even picked up the phone. I’m not…”
Jack warns her not to hang up on him.   He wants to know where she is, he needs to see her.

Ben and Sayid walk up behind Jack.
Kate informs Jack, “I’m downtown. Wilshire and Olive.”
Jack's on his way.
Jack tells Ben he’s going to Kate now while Ben will go deal with Hugo.  They are very hurried.
Sayid- “Sorry Ben. I’m not letting you get anywhere near him.”
Ben tells him he has friends in trouble, “Let's get them to safety and save the dirty linen for later.”
Sayid takes the keys from Ben, “I’ll drive.”
Ben instructs Jack after he gets Kate to meet them at the Long Beach Marina’s, slip 23, “And Jack, Hurry. We’re running out of time.”
Jack gallops off on, uh, I mean in his Bronco.

Night in the jungle:
Sawyer asks Locke what’s he gonna say to Kate to make her come back.
Thunder rolls overhead.
Locke hasn’t figured that out yet.
Sawyer shares with Locke that Kate was pretty excited to hop on that chopper and get the hell out of there. Locke looks as if that doesn’t make sense.
They see a light beam shining up toward the sky.
{Like from the hatch}
Miles asks, “What the hell is that?”
Locke- “Whatever it is, we better stay clear of it.
He starts to walk away but Sawyer shows him in the proper direction to the beach, “Now you wanna take the scenic route?”
Dan asks Locke if he knows “when” they are. John’s only response is, “We need to keep moving.”
John looks at the light.

Dan asks Charlotte about her headache.
Charlotte says it’s better, “Nothing like sore feet to take your mind off your head, eh?”
Dan tells her not to worry cause when they get back to the beach they’re gonna take the zodiac around the Island and she can rest. Charlotte feels that sweet, but he doesn’t need to baby her. She’s fine.
Miles gets a nosebleed. Juliet asks if he’s okay. Miles is peachy.
Screams ring out through the jungle.
Miles- “Now what?”
Nobody move! Sawyer’s gonna check it out.
John seems to want to stop him but James “Got this.”
James observes Claire delivering Aaron in the jungle; Kate is her midwife. You can hear Kate’s dialog “You can’t stop this from happening…and Claire’s, it knows I don’t want it. I was gonna give it away. Babies know that stuff… and Kate’s whole “this baby is all of ours/us” speech.
Kate needs her to push. {What? the button? Lol}
Breathe and push…. You can see Sawyer just long for her. {It’s so damn sweet!}
The light starts to glare, humming…Flash! It’s daylight.
Sawyer looks over to the area he saw Kate and Claire, and of course they are not there.
Whispering John asks what happened, “Did you see something out here, James?”
He replies, “It don’t matter. It’s gone now.”

Kate stills sits in her car waiting to follow Norton.
Clean-shaven {Just needed a change}Jack arrives to talk to her. They are both happy to see each other. Kate says to Jack, she doesn’t know why he called; she can’t be dealing with this right now. He asks her what’s going on, she says it's nothing, of course.
Kate wants him to “just go.”
Jack- “Please. Just tell me.”
She reveals that somebody wants Aaron, “There’s a lawyer in there his clients they know we’re lying. They know I’m not his mom. And they’re gonna take him away.”
Jack-“Who’s gonna take him away?” {the Others. lol}
Then she spots her target. Kate’s gotta go so she tells Jack to “Get in or don’t.”
Jack gets in.

Locke asks Sawyer if he’s ready to tell him who he saw back there. {How does he know it’s a “who”?}
Locke-“You and I both know “when” we were before the flash, James. So who was it you saw? Charlie? Shannon? Yourself?
Sawyer wants to know how Johnny Boy knew “when we were”.
He asks, “That light in the sky was from the hatch, wasn’t it?”
Locke tells Sawyer, “The night that Boone died {Locke looks back} I went out there and started pounding on it as hard as I could. I was confused. Scared. Babbling like an idiot. Asking, why was all this happening to me?”
Sawyer- “Did you get an answer?”
Locke- ”Light came on and shot up into the sky. At the time I thought it meant something. ” But it didn’t mean anything, it was just a light.
Sawyer- “Why did you turn us around then. Don’t you wanna go back there?”
Locke- “Why would I wanna do that?”
Sawyer- “So you can tell yourself to do things different. Save yourself a world of pain.”
Locke says no, he needed that pain, ”to get to where I am now.”

Dan walks, looking up. Miles tells Dan about his nosebleed.
Upset Dan asks when. Miles doesn’t want to “freak out the Others.” {LOL!}
Miles wants Dan to tell him why this happened to him and Charlotte. Dan doesn’t know. He thinks it might have something to do with the duration of exposure, with the amount of time you’ve been on the island. Miles says that doesn’t make any sense, “Those Yahoo’s have been here for months. I’ve been here before two weeks ago.”
Dan- "Are you sure about that?”
Miles looks confused.
Sawyer yells “Hello.” The camp’s back. Finally!
Sawyer asks if anyone wants a Dharma beer. He calls out for Rose and Bernard but nobody’s home. The camp is disheveled and old; cans are empty and rusted.
Locke wonders how long ago this happened. He finds what he considers “Vincent’s” rope leash but no Vincent.
Sawyer wonders, “Where’s the rest of the dog? Where’s the rest of our people?”
Dan announces the zodiac’s gone too.
Charlotte-“Maybe your people took the boat.” {Raft?} Why would they do that?
Miles-“To get away from whoever came in those.”, pointing at an outrigger/canoe.
Dan notes they’re pretty old.
Miles- “Not that old.” {So, are they old or not?} He finds an Ajira water bottle in the canoe. The fucking knows it all, Juliet informs them its an airline based out of India. They fly everywhere. {Friggin Juliet!!!}
Sawyer- “Great. Maybe they got a flight out of here to Vegas….Who came in these? Other Others?” {LMFAO!!!!}
Juliet- “Don’t look at me.” {Huh?!}
Dan’s question is, when are they coming back?
Locke suggests they not wait to find out. They take the boat and row away.
Rowing along, not motoring along, Miles asks, “How far is this place?”
John points, “It’s around that point. Not more than a couple of hours.”
Juliet asks a sad looking Sawyer if he’s all right. He shares that he saw Kate last night in the jungle, before the last Flash; she was delivering Claire’s baby.
Juliet comments, “That was two months ago.”
Sawyer- “Time travel’s a bitch.”
Shots are fired at them. “Get Down!”
Miles thinks they want their boat back! He asks Juliet if these are her people. They are not so she asks if they’re his. Sawyer tells them to shut up and keep paddling. Sawyer’s paddle gets a bullet hole, ”Little help! Little help! {Is that an Indian name? lol!} He gets another paddle.
Juliet fires back at the other boat. The other boat is getting closer.
The hummm starts, the light changes…Sawyer yells, “Thank you lord!”  
Flash! It's pouring rain in the dark!
Sawyer-“I take that back!”
Locke tells them to paddle back to the shore.

Dark rain clouds are moving in.
Kate and Jack followed Norton to a hotel. Jack tries to reason with her about Norton meeting his client doesn’t mean they’re here in L.A., he could have told her that to throw her off.
Kate says emphatically, ”Well, they’re in that hotel right now.”
Jack asks if that person who wants Aaron is sitting in that hotel, then what. He wants her to go with him, go get Aaron and put their heads together and figure something out.
Kate sees a woman open the door to let Norton in. {Red folder} they see its Claire’s mother.
Norton heads back to his car in the pouring rain, while Jack and Kate watch and wait. They are visibly upset and concerned. Jack stops Kate from putting the car in gear.
Kate cries because, “She knows all about Aaron and that’s all that matters.”
Jack will go in and talk to her; maybe he can explain to her why they did it, get her to understand why.
Jack feels “She’ll listen to me. I can fix this, Kate. I can fix it…Aaron is my family too.”
Jack heads out into the rain.

Claire's mom looks deeply at a red framed photo of Claire in a red dress.  There's a knock at her door.
Ms Littleton is surprised to see Dr. Shepherd. She hasn’t seen the drenched Doctor since his father’s funeral.  Jack reveals he knew she was there because he followed her lawyer. He did this because he understands the need for her to do this, but he needs her to know that everything they Kate and I have done was for Aaron.
Ms Littleton-“Who's Aaron?” She’s not following him; she has no idea what he’s talking about. Jack inquires about what she’s doing in L.A..

Jack runs back to Kate’s car and tells her to drive and call Sun, tell her to bring Aaron to the Long Beach Marina; they have to go now!
He tells her that Littleton isn’t there for Aaron, she doesn’t know Aaron exists. She still thinks Claire is dead. She sued Oceanic and is in town to pick up her settlement. Kate questions the coincidence that her lawyer is the same one who is trying to take her son. So who is trying to take Aaron?

Sayid and Ben drive the CANTON-RAINIER carpet van.
Ben asks Sayid why he took it upon himself to rescue Hugo.
Sayid had to make sure Hurley was safe. Ben directs him to pull into a parking garage. They are met by Mr. Norton, who presents Ben with a folder of info. He tells Ben “they don’t have any solid case against Reyes.  The M.E. said that the man found outside Santa Rosa was killed before Reyes escaped.” That’s good news to Ben. There will be a pre-lim hearing in the morning. The judge will never let it past that, and Reyes will be a free man.
Sayid asks “Who was that?”
Ben- “That’s my lawyer.”

The “time traveling Islanders” pull their boat up on to the beach. It is dark.

Miles- “Remind me never to do that again.”
Dan asks where they are. Locke feels it’s hard to say until it gets light. There are flashes of lightning and thunder cracks.
Juliet wants a chance to finish her conversation with Sawyer.
He asks, “What conversation was that?”
The one before they started shooting at us, “Where you were about to tell me how it felt to see Kate again.”
He was about to tell her anything.
Juliet- “Why don’t you tell me now?” {As if she really cares. HA!}
Sawyer explains he was close enough to touch her. If her wanted, he could’ve walked right up to her and talked to her. {Why didn’t he?}
Sawyer-“What’s done is done.” He tells Juliet her nose is bleeding.

Charlotte calls everyone over to take a look. “Wreckage. It‘s like it just happened.”
Locke turns over a little locker with the French word stenciled on it. “Besixdouze
Locke asks if anybody speaks French. {We know Charlotte does!}
An octagon shaped raft floats in the dark rain. {passengers are men and 1 woman? They speak French, but we don’t get subtitles. Interesting huh?!}

Robert-”Mais j'te l'ai dit, on aurait jamais dû suivre ces maudits chiffres !” ( But j'tehave said - We never should have followed those damn numbers!)
Montand- ”Mais c'est pas ma faute, Robert. C'est Brennan qui devait tenir le sonar! (But it's not my fault, Robert.  It was Brennan who hold sonar!)
Brennen-“Mais je le faisais, Montand! Je vous l'ai déja dit, les instruments ont mal fonctionné!” (But  I did, Montand!  I've already said, the instruments have malfunctioned!)
Rousseau-“Un homme à la mer!” (Man overboard!) {I thought that meant sea?}
Other Man- “Quoi?” (What?)
 “Mais je pensais qu'on était tous là!” (But I thought we were all there!)
“On est tous là ! Il n'est pas des nôtres. Alors qui est-ce?“ (We're all here! It is not ours.  So who is it?)

They need to paddle fast as they’re drifting with the current. They see a man floating, only him, no boat…Nothing “Les vagues vont nous amener jusque sur la côte.” (The waves will lead us to the coast.)
“Le vent va passer par ici.” (The wind will pass through here.)
“Au nom de dieu, Brennan ! Ta gueule !” (In the name of god, Brennan! Shut up!)
“Allez, tirez-le dans le radeau.” (Come on, pull the raft.)
“Aide moi.” (Help me.)
"Il est lourd!" (He's heavy!)
“Tiens, il respire encore.” (He's still breathing.)
It’s Jin!!

Jack and Kate arrive at the dock; they’re the first ones there.   Kate asks him why he called her today. Jack said because he was worried.
Kate wonders why he was worried, “Why today?”
He shows her the handwritten note with her address on it.   He explains this note came out of Sayid’s attacker's pocket.
Kate asks what Sayid is doing there, but of course Jack’s answer is, it’s not important. What is important is that she and Aaron get to “some place safe.” But safe from who?
Jack doesn’t answer.

Ben and Sayid show up Ben says hello to Kate. Kate is stunned. Ben smiles.
Jack tells her it’s okay. He’s with me.”
Jack knows it’s gonna be hard for her to understand, “He’s here to help us. To help everyone that we left behind. We all need to be together again.”
Kate-“It’s him.”
Kate feels it’s him {Ben} trying to take Aaron away.”
Jack says no.
Ben-”No Jack. She’s right. It was me.”
Now Jack’s stunned.
Kate asks Ben who the hell he thinks he is. Why doesn’t he just stay away, “Leave me and my son alone.”
Ben-“Because he’s not your son. Kate.”

Sun watches them from her car. Aaron is sleeping in the back seat. She takes her gun and...
Jin unconscious, dries on the beach.   He wakes.  He sees one of the French men has a violin case. They have guns, walkie/radio. You hear…4... 8...

Montand- “Robert... Regarde, le signal vient de l'île” (Look, the signal's coming from the island.)
Robert- “Tu peux déterminer la source?“ (Can you find the source?)
electronic voice on radio: 15... 16...
Montand-“Bien sûr que oui. Regarde.” (Yes, of course. Look.)
Robert- “Tu crois que l'île est habitée?” ( You think the island is inhabited?)
Montand-“J'sais pas.” (I don't know.)
Rousseau- “Ça va? Comment tu te sens? “  (Ok, how do you feel?)
Jin-“No understand.
Rousseau-“You speak English?”
Rousseau-“Are you okay?”
Rousseau-“How did you get here?”
Robert-“Qui est-ce? “ (Who is it)
Montand-“On s'en fout qui c'est. Qu'est ce qu'il fait ici? “ (We do not care who it is. What is he doing here?)
Rousseau-“Il dit qu'il est venu en bateau.” (He said he came by boat.)
Robert to Jin- “What boat?”
Jin-“It's gone. Sink.”
Rousseau-“It must've been caught in the same storm as ours.”
Montand-“Who are you? How long you in the water?”
Jin-I don't know.”
Montand-“How do you not know how you wound up in the middle of the ocean, huh?”
Rousseau-“Montand! Laisse-le, il est en état de choc. On a de l’eau à lui donner?” (Montand! Leave him alone, he's in a state of shock. We have water to give him?)
Robert-“Ouais.” (Yeah.)
Robert comes back with water.
Robert-“Tiens.” (Here.)
Rousseau-“Merci, Robert.” (Thank you, Robert.)
Jin drinks. She asks him his name. “Kwon Jin-su. Jin.
Rousseau-“Hello, Jin. I'm Danielle. Danielle Rousseau.”

The little prince is a GREAT episode! So much was going on. The calm before the storm!
I was thrilled to see a few clues addressed, especially the whole dead not dead, just being gone from there. So if that's the case with examples here, i.e. Claire, Jin, Sawyer, Christian, will we indeed see Boone and Shannon and many more "goners".
Even Sawyer was under the possible impression that Kate and the rest of the O6 were "blown up".

Vocabulary and Research…
*  {Chief} Little Prince or Tustenuggee was an 18th century chieftain and longtime representative of the lower Creeks from the 1780s until his death in 1832. During the early 1800s, he and Big Warrior shared the leadership of the Creek National Council. Little Prince is first recorded in 1780 living as a chieftain at  Broken Arrow
* The Little Prince ( French:Le Petit Prince), published in 1943, is French aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s most famous novella, he wrote while renting a house in N.Y. on Long Island. The novella includes a number of drawings by Saint-Exupéry himself, which are reproduced in most versions.
-Astronomy- An asteroid, a small asteroid moo, Petit-Prince was named from the book.
* Reincarnation- Literally "to be made flesh again", is a doctrine or metaphysical belief that some essential part of a living being survives death to be reborn in a new body. This essential part is often referred to as the spirit or soul, the "higher" or "true" self, "divine spark", or "I". According to such beliefs, a new personality is developed during each life in the physical world, but some part of the self remains constant throughout the successive lives. Belief in reincarnation has ancient roots.
* A canton is a type of administrative division of a country.
- The name Rainer comes from the Germanic name Reginar, composed of the two elements ragin ("advice") and heri ("army").
- A circadian rhythm is an approximate daily periodicity, a roughly-24-hour cycle in the biochemical, and physiological or behavioral processes of living beings, including plants, animals, fungi, and cyan bacteria. Circadian rhythms are endogenously generated, and can be entrained by external cues, called Zeitgebers. The primary one is daylight.

The rhythm is linked to the light-dark cycle. Disruption to rhythms usually has a negative effect. Many travelers have experienced the condition known as jet leg, with its associated symptoms of fatigue, disorientation and insomnia.

I explored the wonderful world of Virtual Reality in past compositions. But a couple of thing came up in this episode that made me have a flashback to a few of those things.

- Computed tomography (CT) a medical imaging method employing tomography. Digital geometry processing is used to generate a 3 dimensional image of the inside of an object from a large series of 2-dimensional x-Ray images taken around a single axis of rotation. The word "tomography" is derived from the Greek tomos (slice) and graphein (to write). CT produces a volume of data, which can be manipulated, through a process known as windowing.
- Tomography is used in medicine, archeology, biology, geophysics, oceanography, material science, astrophysics and other sciences. In most cases it is based on the mathematical procedure called Tomographic Reconstruction.
- Virtual- the term has been defined in philosophy as "that which is not real" but may display the full qualities of the real.
- Virtual reality (VR) is a technology, which allows a user to interact with a computer, simulated environment, be it a real or imagined one. It’s immersible, highly visual, 3D environments. In the book The Metaphysics of Virtual Reality, identifies 7 different concepts of Virtual Reality: simulation, interaction, artificiality, immersion, telepresence, full-body immersion, and network communication.
- Therapeutic use for VR: Is it’s various application to various forms of exposure therapy, ranging from phobia treatments, to newer approaches to treating PTSD {post traumatic Stress Disorder}. Also notable examples would be various zoophobias and acrophobia, as a step between basic exposure therapy such as the use of simulacra and true exposure. A much more recent application is being piloted by the U.S. Navy to use a much more complex simulation to immerse veterans (specifically of Iraq) suffering from PTSD in simulations of urban combat settings. While this sounds counterintuitive, talk therapy has limited benefits for people with PTSD, which is now thought by many to be a result of changes either to the limbic system in particular, or a systemic change in stress response.
- Cave Automatic Virtual Environment (better known by the recursive acronym CAVE) is an impressive virtual reality environment where projectors are directed to three, four, five or six of the walls of a room-sized cube. The name is also a reference to the allegory of the Cave in Plato’s Republic where a philosopher contemplates perception, reality and illusion.
- Mixed reality (MR) (encompassing both augmented reality and augmented virtuality) refers to the merging of real and virtual worlds to produce new environments and visualizations where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real time.

Okay, you’re going to be pissed off at me because I have to play fair and show you a possible alternative to what we could be seeing.  Yes, I’ve hinted to this in the past, many times actually.  Then the “Powers That Be” introduced “Time Travel” into the mix.  We were told “time travel”, but only the conscious mind travels, yada, yada, yada.  I’ve been logically keeping an open mind to all of this, all the while being a detective that always keeps my clues very middle of the road and showing you two sides whenever possible.  With all that said, I must say that the clues I seem to be perceiving are still there.   So how were all those logical clues going to fit into the illogical world of time travel?  Holy Shit, Losties, I’m gonna lose my friggin' mind over all this!
That brings me to…
Time skipping due to “traveling through time”.  Is it possible that the hints we have to head, C.T. Scans/MRI, Radiology {which are equipped with a giant magnet} and hints to books such as The invention of Morel, and all the mind fucks that I've mentioned in past posts, hypnosis, lucid dreaming, brainwashing, drug hallucination, illusion, Santa Rosa,  altered state of consciousness, merged/altered reality, etc..
Are some of the things we see intertwined with a form of three dimensional recreations?  I’m not saying all of what we see is due to that, but too many of the clues still point us in the way of things going on in their heads/minds.
In this episode we do touch on the concept of living your life over, and doing things differently, could possibly save you a lot of regret and pain.   But in reality we can’t do that.  Here John Locke says he wouldn’t go back because he needed all that pain to get him where he is now.  We all have moments in our lives we wish we could “do over” but we can't.  But lessons are learned from those “past events." We can flashback and reflect on them, but hopefully not make the same mistakes again. And the adage "Everything happens for a reason" is sometimes not understood at the time, but at some point in the future, when an event or experience presents itself, and we "Get it."

Back to the matter at hand... Who is the Little Prince? Aaron? Charlie Hume? Jin? Hurley? or Jack? Or is it a player to be named later?

Either way, a big storms a brewin'!

Love to all who are "LOST"™

Here's a couple of pictures to Note:
Note A and  B

Disclaimer: I never claim to know everything about the show and my thoughts by no means make me right! The things I share here are my views and/or opinions. I don't claim to catch every single detail either! You all know I hate spoilers! And I stand clear of reading certain sites as to not take me off my own course of research. The one thing I don't need to do here is rehash all of the obvious clues from an episode, we all know what they are. Understood? Let the fun begin! I'll only note things that I know come up as clues later, but need to be noted when they first show up and things I find that will be of importance.
