I was just thinking about a small part in Lost when Locke, Ben and Sun were going through the jungle heading for the temple. Locke was leading the bunch and the following conversation takes place:
Ben: May I ask you a question John?
Ben: How is it that you know where you’re going?
Locke: I just know.
Ben: I mean how does that work exactly?
Locke: How does what work?
Ben: The knowing. I mean did it come upon you gradually or did you wake up one morning and suddenly understand the mysteries of the universe?
Well guess what a similar situation took place in the Chaos Pool. Judge for yourself.
Excerpt from the Chaos Pool:
Pargrave tells Astra and Lydall that the Chaos Pool is very close, but the elderly scientist is suffering from exhaustion and is on the verge of collapse. Astra thinks it’s odd that Pargrave seems to know the route, even though they’ve never been here before. Lydall gets an electric shock from the satchel and burns his hand badly. At first Astra tells him to leave it behind, but then she and Pargrave hear a woman’s voice inside their heads telling them to bring the satchel to her. Lydall tries to open it first and discovers the satchel is falling apart…
It appears to me that they are using the smallest of details and incorporating them into the Lost story also. I mean not everything is exact as Locke is the MIB but Pargrave isn’t a Guardian. However Lydall is the White Guardian. I just feel that they have taken key parts and placed them in a bag and they get used however they see fit in their story of Lost.
