Can the island resurect the dead in some form?

Post by MyStarbuckHatesLost on Sun May 25, 2008 11:00 am

Here is a quicky (for me at least)
I've been wondering after being reminded of it in a post about Anthony Cooper thinking he was dead and dead Christian Shephard and (possibly dead) Claire...

How far does the power of the island/jacob go?

Does it have the power, in some form, to not only transport people in space in time but to also resurect those who are dead.

We can be pretty sure, even if it hasn't been explicitly shown yet, that the Orchid Station is some type of transport device. Since it is in a Dharma station, we can also assume that it uses independant technology or at least technology which harnesses some inherant power of the island to function as such a transporter.

But does the island, or perhaps technology related to the Orchid Station, have the power to bring back people from death? Even if it is not "fully" allive but just (for lack of a better analogy) giving form to human conciousness so that it could interact with the living beings on the island. This might explain the "undead" comments in the past by the show's producers.

But if it is more than that, if the island can actually bring people back who have died, it would explain a great many things. Such as Cooper swearing he had died in the car accident, Christian Shephard making more appearences than Elvis though we saw C.S.'s body on a slab in Australia.

To go even further out on a limb, it could even explain how Jack (for example) survived being thrown from a disintigrating aircraft at high speed and altitude! There are people who trip on their own shoe laces or slip in the tub and die...but being tossed out of the flaming wreckage of a 777 in mid-air and walking away from it with only a cut on your back? That's a hard one to swallow.

Yeah MSHL your beginning to sound like a certain Commet with you pointing out these sort of continuity errors.

I like the way you explaied the dead on here. But what about the different images of Christian, I believe that the first time we see him. Its a hallutination or a smokey image. But all the times after that he's an 'undead' person.

The living dead is a big part of the LOST mythos, no doubt.
I'm thinking that the Island's composite of black volcanic rock and electromagnetic phenomena act as a crude recording device if you will, preserving the psychic "footprint" of the individual.

I completely agree with you MSHL! What good thinking! I bet you're correct, and I completely forgot that Cooper said that.

some good points in there like how did Christian come back to life but if it can resurect people from the dead how does it do it or who made it resurect Christian and most importantly who made it.

If the island turns out to have time travel, could it bring forth a past living version of the dead? It might need the deceased body as a reference or base point.

Yes, Theotherguy, the how is always a big question...and the why is usually even bigger!

I think that this might tie in with Charlies message to Jack that was given to Hurley.

Charlie's message was "You are not supposed to raise him"

Jack jumps to the conclusion that the him in question is Aaron. What if that is not what Charlie's message meant at all.

What if he is referring to raising Jock Locke, maybe the island can resurrect the dead. Maybe that is the person that Jack is not supposed to raise!

Once again Stitch, very good though, maybe Hurley was talking about raising Locke, but I don't think so. I think they ARE supposed to raise Locke from the dead.

The thought of Purgatory has been tossed around since season 1, so there is a lot of stuff out there that relates to this issue. The fact remains, Christian Sheppard came to the island in a coffin, the body was never found, but people see him all over the place.

I'm not sure we'll ever get a conclusive answer with regards to this one. We'll get something ambiguous that allows us to reach our own understanding likely.

There's also the fact that Christian wears different cloths depending on who is seeing him. This one could just go any way.
