In 1881 (the same year the Black Rock disappeared), the Treaty of Bardo was signed, giving the French control of Tunisia. What makes this interesting is the other definition of bardo:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bardo"The Tibetan word Bardo means literally 'intermediate state' - also translated as 'transitional state' or 'in-between state' or 'liminal state'. In Sanskrit the concept has the name antarabhāva.Fremantle (2001) states that there are six traditional bardo states known as the Six Bardos: the Bardo of This Life (p.55); the Bardo of Meditation (p.58); the Bardo of Dream (p.62); the Bardo of Dying (p.64); the Bardo of Dharmata (p.65); and the Bardo of Existence (p.66)."Also note that the ship's wheel looks like the wheel of Dharma.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dharmacakra
One of the most popular terms for the Virgin Mary is Stella Maris (Star of the Sea). In this role, she is protector of those at sea.Note that there is a strong connection between the Egyptian goddess Isis and the Virgin Mary, and also note that the star in the Stella Maris icon is considered to be Sirius."Isis is depicted by the star Sept (Sirius) which is the star of the new year. The appearance of the star signified the advent of a new year and so Isis was considered the goddess of rebirth and re-incarnation and also as a protector of the dead. The Book of the Dead outlines a particular ritual that would protect the dead so that he can go any where in the under world. Most of the names Isis holds signify her as the goddess of protection of the dead."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isis
Can I ask, what's the point of people doing all this decompiling of the website and such? I mean, I'm 99% positive the game makers haven't hidden any clues in the game's code, so everything you're uncovering is stuff that's meant to be uncovered later. Why not just sit back and enjoy the game as it was meant to be played?
Will, probably because some people enjoy doing it.
The statue, submarine and clock (and newspaper?) are probably a part of the clue hunt. The sub could easily be a Season 3 clue, and the clock a Season 2 clue. The statue did first appear in Season 1, so it could be the Season 1 clue.
Interesting. So what have we ?What puzzles me is the drawing, the stopwatch and the number 108.Look at this picture :http://www.jpghosting.com/showpic.php?image=108_Drawing_c17ee99723849da7a9523bf888dd6721.jpgDoe is show a map of the island ? Where the sun like shape is supposed to be the ex/implosion of the hatch ?And what about the submarine ? It's clearly not the others sub that John blew up :http://fileserver6.jpghosting.com/images/NotTheOthersSub_94505cfe12ebb401ea5b4484047aaf66.jpg
I think the submarine represents the sub that Locke blew up, and that it will be the Season 3 clue in the next hunt. As for the drawing it's from the Hatch. (In season 2) I'm guessing that when you click on the stop watch that will be one of the images from the hatch in Season 2. :)
did anyone notice in the last picture, the one inside the boat, you can see the picture of sonya from sam's desk(on the open door of the cabin) and right above her seems to be some text??????
yeah.. there is a picture and some text above it... and also some other text on the far left of the picture...
there was something similar to this in the last clue hunt wasnt there?
The "108" is MOST LIKELY the 108 minute countdown inside the swan. Or at least a reference to it.
What is with the tally marks on the picture with the 108? Could that signify days? Just a thought.
