Thanks to The Wife Lady for the following thoughts and speculation.
I was doing some research, like everyone else, into the meanings behind some of the clues that we have recieved from the website.
I haven't noticed if anyone else has posted this question to the group, but I thought that if I asked you, you could either propose it to the group, or tell me that its already been done.
I was curious about the fact that there was 2 passwords given after the Pack Sams Bag activity. So I looked the words up, there is a Matthew Is in French Polynesia, which is cool. Its ties in, the french woman, french polynesia, password clue to the Oceanic Hotline.
Then there is Abaddon, I have Encarta on my computer,and in the english dictionary this is a copy of it:
A·bad·don [ə bádd'n]
devil: in Christianity, the devil of the bottomless pit
depths of Hell: in Christianity, the bottomless pit of Hell
[15th century. abaddon "the place of destruction"]
The Thanksgiving Hymns—a copy was also found in the Dead Sea Scrolls—tells of "the Sheol of Abaddon" and of the "torrents of Belial [that] burst into Abaddon". The Biblical Antiquities of Philo mentions Abaddon as a place (sheol, hell), not as a spirit or demon or angel. In Paradise Regained, Milton also uses Abaddon as a place—the pit. It appears to have been St. John who first personified the term to stand for an angel. In the 3rd centuryActs of Thomas, Abaddon is the name of a demon, or the Devil himself. Abaddon has also been identified as the angel of death and destruction, demon of the abyss, and chief of demons of the underworld hierarchy, where he is equated with Samael or Satan. In magic and alchemy, Abaddon is the Destroying Angel of the Apocalypse. In Barrett'sThe Magus, Abaddon is pictured, in colour, as one of the evil demons. In Medieval legend, Abaddon was considered as a synonym for Hell and/or the ruler thereof, and in Revelations 9:7-11, he was the Christian angel of Hell. The Hebrew word abadon, from which the name is derived, means "destruction" (Job 26:6 and Psalms 88:11).
Not long after Judeo-Christian teachings taught the name of this demon, Abaddon referred to the pit or cave that was used in mystery religions and schools as a rite of passage into the greater mysteries. Often the experience would entail the use of ritual substances that put the aspirant into an altered state in which he or she could receive divine revelation. Because the experience was sometimes unpleasant, this rite came to be viewed as being "hellish." However, it was considered absolutely necessary so that the seeker may become pure enough to encounter the "mind of God", as an angel is described as the "Angel of the bottomless pit who binds Satan for a thousand years".
In occultism and esoterism, Abaddon is related to blood red, brown and green colours, winter, the month of January, Saturday, intuition, sacrifice and challenge, the ruby and the sword. His Tarot symbol is the one of judgement.
This is going along the same way as saying that they are all dead, they just don't realize it yet. Strange, I was watching the Lost season 2 dvd last night watching the extras, and I unlocked an easter egg of Evagline Lily talking about the Losties being the best kinda test subjects since they had no one left on the outside to miss them, with the mysteries of the numbers added into the knowledge of the fist avg, this theory seems good.
I just wanted to see what the other people on the site thought about this information
