Weird thing I just noticed?

Post by l337Jacqui on Thu May 29, 2008 3:04 am

So, I dunno if I just didn't know about this, and everyone else does, but I was googling feng shui and look at what I found:




At first, I thought I just found a random picture where someone was making a weird Dharma logo for fun, but if you google feng shui yourself, and do an image search, you will see that there are many different pictures like this! Why are the lines exactly the same???

What do those lines mean? Why are they on all the Dharma logos?

The writers have drawn heavily upon Buddhism and other Eastern religions. The term Dharma is ancient.

Here are some links to check out. Some of the symbols should look familiar to Losties.

Noble Eightfold path: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noble_Eightfold_Path
Dharmachakra: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dharmacakra

That's cool. I love those connections. You should also read the book 'Be Here Now' for some other stuff like that. It-just-kicks.

Bagua, it is a symbol that has been pointed to and discussed several times.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bagua_(concept)

Be Here Now is written by Dr.Richard Alpert. I have a copy and it is for sure an influence on the show. Sorry to link to a LT post, but I tried posting here and it doesn't like all the pasting.

Yep, but around ancient Korean flag. That's something I noticed since The Swan Station appeared, and that's why I started suspecting Mr. Paik could be behind Dharma... or at least the "dark side" of Dharma.

Take a look at this:

I commented on this post on L-T. And I bought this book after reading it. I feel also that there is a lot in it that seems to have to have been an influence to Lost. It is a book I highly recommend.

My brain is very comparative to the Twilight Zone, so I think you are onto something there SomeArtzey!

Actually, I was referring to this place:


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imaginationland

Darker and twisteder (it's a word, don't bother looking it up) than The Twilight Zone.

I'm super serial, man-bear-pig IS out there, under the smoke.

No, seriously though, thanks to those of you that checked out my "Be Here Now" link. Eventually I'll put it in here, but it seems that this site doesn't like me to paste a lot, so I'm thinking of revamping it and adding on, as well as talk about more thing's I've noticed in there.

Keep your eyes peeled!
