A place where moments take your breath away

LOST (The End)

This week has brought me a tinge of sadness. My two favorite television series have aired their final episode. It is a bitter-sweet end. 

Today, I want to share my thoughts about LOST 

There are many theories from unwavering fans of the Lost Phenomenon that have been posted on blog sites, Facebook, Twitter etc. Each and every one of us can interpret the six years invested in our favorite show anyway we would like. However, where we find common ground is in the way each character found their way into our hearts.  

My theory follows along the lines of many others and although it may ring in simplicity it is also spiritually profound.  

In simple terms, the Island was real, the people were real and the plane crash was real. The Island, like our world, housed good and evil. Both portrayed as brothers giving a likeness to the biblical brothers Cain and Able.  

When the plane crashed, those who survived went on to form relationships and friendships with their fellow survivors; playing a monumental role in each others lives.  

In the final season we watch our characters in their physical life; through their struggles to survive the crash of Oceanic Flight 815. Then we share in their metaphysical realm of the afterlife in their flash-sideways. We watch as each character, just outside the boundaries of time and physical existence, remembers the events during the most important time in their life while reconnecting with those important people so they can ‘move on’ together.  

In the end, Lost leaves the timeline interpretation to us. Did our characters die as a result of the crash or at another point during their journey?  

Although this is a simple interpretation of the LOST series, the story itself can pull you in deeper. Each scientific fact reflecting truth and some names modeled after prestigious people of the past; John Locke being the name of an English Philosopher in the 17th century.  

After six years of intensely watching the world surrounding LOST, I feel a sense of emptiness; an emptiness that any ending might bring. What makes me smile is knowing that at some point I plan to revisit LOST from beginning to end and experience the series from a knowing set of eyes.
