Time Travel Poll

Post by ravenontheleft on Sun Jul 06, 2008 3:01 am

I wanted to ask a question to see where everyone's mind is headed after the season finale. I personally think/know there is time travel.

I thought this was a no brainer also until I read a very recent theory post on here saying that Darlton said there was no time travel.

Pretty much a consensus it seems. I think a better poll would be - "was there any time travel involved before Ben turned that wheel and ended up in the Sahara?"

And whether we consider the doctor washing up on shore before he was killed or Daniel's payload experiment time travel - or just time bending.

I voted yes.Time travel is a favourite topic of mine. I love that its in Lost and
I'm hoping its more than a red herring to distract us from what the
island is.

I would think the doc turning up on the beach would have to be time
bending.Simply becuase he was not aware on the freighter that he was
already dead!If he had time travelled he would have known.....yeah?

Nooooo, I hate the idea of time travel. Sad Because theres always loops and plot holes in the show that involves it. I like mind travel because its a sort of journey, you can't change anything but you can witness it all again.

We've seen Ben travel forward in time, but i don't think anybody can actually go physically backwards. Desmond backwards mind traveled, which altered present and future occourances.
I do get the feeling that time travel is a quick fix, a band-aid, for the show. Based on previous statements, i don't tink time travel was ever in the game plan when Lost was first conceived.

I have to vote yes, but i must say that i think that time travel in this show is a cheap cop out. The writer dug themselves a hole and that is the fastest way out.

I agree with Lat, its a one way ticket. I don't think you can go to the future and then come back to stop something happening. And the same with the past. Ben didn't travel back to his orignial time after he landed in the sahara he stayed there.

The orchid video made it pretty clear that it is time travel. I mean that chamber that ben had to bust through was something serious. How long does this have to go on before everyone just accepts full time travel via the orchid. I personally love the idea. Especially since my major Lost theories have been time travel related.

I mean the smoke monster was on the very first episode. That should have been a big clue. If you want a show that is very real then watch CNN.

I have never been against time-travel in Lost - afterall it is done in a very unique and subtle way - its not like "Capt'n, there is a space time anomoly up ahead" and then bam, everyones wearing mini-skirts and beehives Very Happy

Time travel can be boring and predicitable, but I fond nothing about Lost either of those things, so I am happy to accept anything they choose to write in Cool

It is without a doubt, time travel. But not as we know it.

Hahaha. I've always said that if someone had written a synopsis of the constant before it aired and posted it on a theories web site everyone would have torn it apart and given the author hell. The writers make it palatable and enjoyable. I hate sci fi everything, but my favorite Lost episode was "The Constant."

I thought at first there was only mind travel re: Desmond in "The Constant."
But after seeing Ben end up in Tunesia and apparently on October 24, 2005.

That was confirmed from the Hotel desk clerk. I have to believe that it is time travel, or else the writers have got some serious explaining to do! scratch

LOCKE: Hey. Uh... was he talking about what I think he was talking about?

BEN: If you mean time-travelling bunnies, then yes.



That kinda does it for me, it does though mean we can not trust a word the producers say so many things have been debunked could actually be re-examined.

I have heard that comment about Carlton and Damon saying no time travel so many times and yet I have never seen anyone give a reference to where they said it.

I have listened to most of the podcasts, and it is in fact the opposite they allude to time travel quite a bit. Let us go back in time to their first official podcast, November 8th 2005!



Carlton Cuse: You're not going to tell them about the time travel, are you?

Damon Lindelof: No, no, I'm not going to. In fact, I'm going to go back in time and prevent you from having said that. [Laughs]

Carlton Cuse: Oh my God.

I think I know the quote that made everyone spread the rumor that there is no time travel. It is from a podcast.

Damon Lindelof: “Just a quick sort of side note in terms of the way that we deal with time travel on the show - we are very paradox averse; that is to say, when our characters are time traveling, nothing that they do can change the present or the future that you have seen. Which is different than you know, the conventional Back to the Future time travel story telling.”

You can verify the quote here: http://lostpedia.com/wiki/Official_Lost_Podcast/February_28%2C_2008

To me, if anything this confirmed time travel. I mean he even says "in terms of the way that we deal with time travel on the show." This to me meant that there MUST be time travel on the show. This is back in late February. Since then it has been very aparent to me that the Orchid was used for time travel.
