Vorhin habe ich eine umfassende Lost-Theorie gelesen, die versucht alles zu erklären. Deswegen hier auch gleich mal der Link:

http://ericknowsitall.com/ultimate-lost-theory/

Nachfolgend noch ein paar meiner Meinung nach besonders gelungene Aussagen:

Zitat:
I submit to you that the light is…. time.
Now think of what Jacob’s mother told him about the light in the episode “Across the Sea” she tells Jacob and his brother in black they must never enter the cave. The Boy in Black says that it is beautiful, she agrees and tells them that a little bit of the same light that is in the cave is inside every man but that people always want more. Mother says… that while the other people can’t take the light, they might try and if the light goes out here it goes out everywhere.

Think about it, don’t we all wish we had more time? And if we could make time wouldn’t we make more, and more, and more?? We could never get enough. And she wasn’t being purely philosophical when she said that a little bit of that light is in every man because every living human has a little bit of time left (be it an hour, or be it 100 years) but we always lust for more. That’s why we have sayings like, “if I could just make some time”, “there is never enough time in the day”. But even more importantly, if we could manipulate goodness would we travel in time? Of course not. The light is time, NOT goodness.


Zitat:
THE SMOKE MONSTER IS THE PAST

Not just Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Hurley’s past, but the smoke monster is all of our pasts, filled with the dark, dirty, pain, hurt, and everything else we leave behind us in our lives. Think of the light in the cave like fresh clean gasoline that you pour into your car, but as your car uses the gas it spits out the tail pipe in a cloud of black smoke. The clean unused gas is the symbol of your future and the smoke is a symbol of your past and all the things you leave behind. Yet, if you backup your car you can run into your own exhaust i.e., your own smoke consumes you. And that’s what had happened on the island they had “backed up into their own exhaust” so to speak.

Therefore, the ancient Egyptians were the first to manipulate time, but in doing so they created the smoke monster which is really nothing more than a physical version of the past.

The light = time (the future, hope, etc.)
The smoke = the past (the exhaust of our lives)


Zitat:
This brings us to a very interesting point about the smoke monster. Think back to the very first episodes of the show LOST, where in flashbacks we find Kate running from her past figuratively (as a fugitive) and also literally as she ran from the smoke monster (the past) when she, Jack, and Charlie hiked out to the front piece of the plane to find the transceiver. Charlie, on the other hand, ran from the smoke monster (the past) but was slipping and sliding and getting stuck in the mud similar to what his actual past was like as we saw in flashbacks with his drug addiction. Yet, in that scene they never once show Jack running from the smoke monster, instead a few episodes later (White Rabbit) we see Jack chasing after his father, not just in a real life flashback, but also on the island… Jack is chasing his past while Kate is running from it. You can look at all the characters from LOST and see the same types of connections when we view the smoke monster as the past the story on the island makes even more sense.


Zitat:
Looking at the the show through this filter (the light being time, the smoke monster being the past), it makes the finale that much more epic. Jack has spent all six seasons of LOST chasing and battling his past and now he actually gets to fight the past physically on the cliff-side! Jack (with Kate’s help) confront and defeat the past, but not without paying a price, the past has mortally wounded Jack. At this point the only way Jack can move on is for him to let go of the past which he does in the sideways reality (metaphorically), and on the island with Desmond’s help in the cave of time errrr… golden light. In a way, you can think of the entire show of LOST as a symbolic battle between our past and our future. We are left asking ourselves… if we were somehow given a clean slate would we give in to our own smoke monsters and be consumed by our past making the same mistakes we had made already? Or, would we let go of our past, embrace our future, learn from our mistakes and move on?


Gerade diesen letzten Teil finde ich doch sehr interessant und auch plausibel. Es gibt Teile der Theorie, die mich nicht besonders überzeugen, wie z.B. dass man mit der Swan-Station eigentlich jedes Mal die Zeit zurückgestellt hat, aber im Großen und Ganzen finde ich es als große Erklärung ziemlich genial. Meinungen?

P.S. Ich weiß, wie verrückt es ist jetzt im ABC-Board noch einen Lost-Theorien-Thread zu erstellen.


The plane clears frame, finally free of the Island. Jack Shephard has done what he came to this place to do. He has found his purpose. He has found love, and been loved. He has finally found a way to love himself. The bamboo sways across the blue sky, and Jack Shephard's eye closes one final time. He is gone. The end.

Einiges hört sich tatsächlich sehr toll an. Aber als "Theorie" würde ich es nicht beschreiben. Es "erklärt" in dem Sinne ja nichts, löst keine Rätsel, die irgendwie noch bestanden hätten, geschweige denn würde so unverbesserliche Antwortensucher zufrieden stellen, die es nach dem Ende ja zahlreich gab.

Es ist vielmehr eine Interpretation der Serie. Ich tu mich ja immer schwer, Lindelof und Cuse zu unterstellen, dass sie es in etwa so gemeint haben könnten, weil mir vor allem die letzte Staffel mit immer mehr Distanz dazu einfach zu wirr und die Andeutungen in diese groß symbolische Richtung zu rar waren. Aber das zeichnet eine Interpretation ja gar nicht notwendigerweise aus. Es ist immer eine schmale Gratwanderung, die Lost in der Nachbetrachtung ausmacht: Sind wir zu philosophisch für die Serie und überziehen alles Sinnlose mit Sinn - oder war die Serie absichtlich so zum Nachdenken über das eigene Leben konzipiert? Man wird es nie erfahren, aber viele Versuche von Letzterem bringen mich zum Lächeln.

Ich mag es eben, dass ich inzwischen ein paar Gesamtdeutungen gelesen habe und alle in gewisser Weise stimmen könnten. So viele Ansätze und Möglichkeiten Lost auszulegen - was für mich Lost zu einem Meisterwerk macht. Eine "einfache" Auflösung hätte mir wohl den ganzen Spaß an der Serie verdorben und ich würde jetzt darüber urteilen, wie es die Kritiker und Masterplanzweifler eben nach der Serie getan haben.

Ich bin auch ein Masterplanzweifler, und zwar ein vehementer. Aber ich finde das Ende dennoch höchst episch und bewundere eben, dass Lost auf so viele lebensbejahende und intelligente Weisen interpretiert werden kann.
