Lost Theories II

This past week's episode of Lost: The Little Prince, got me thinking about a few things. This season is really opening up and explaining the mystery of previous seasons. I've seen hints and clues of what's to come. Here are more of my predictions about the show. We'll see what ends up coming true and what is just me overthinking the story.


  1. Evidence has been given that Charlotte & Miles have both been on the island previously. They both started getting the nose bleeds. It appears that the longer you are on the island, the quicker the effect of time travel has on your health. So Charlotte has spent more time on the island than anyone else. Miles is next to have been on the island longes and then Juliet, since they all had the symptons come in that order. Which leads me to my next conclusion...
  2. Charlotte was born on the island. Not only that, but her mother, unlike other pregnant women, didn't die while giving birth on the island. A true mystery. I believe her mother is the woman who led Faraday out to disable the bomb, which is the same woman who we saw sickly and in bed that Desmond had visited. We found out that Widmore was helping to take care of her, and hints were given that she had the time travelling consciousness sickness that Desmond went through last season. So the final conclusion is that Charlotte is Charles Widmore's daughter as that woman and Widmore had a relationship on the island.
  3. Miles previous time on the island isn't given in detail but is hinted at. I believe he too has a variation of the time travelling sickness. The difference is he has slight control over it. Do you wonder how he seems to know when and where people have died? It's because he can control his time travelling conciousness and as a result he knows what has happened and how.
  4. Finally, and this one may be out there, I believe Jacob is really Jack from the future. The island keeps trying to bring Jack back. It's interesting when you note that Jack was bringing his dead father back in a coffin when the plane crashed. And now, Jack is going to go back to the island with a dead John Locke in a coffin. I believe this means that Christian Shepherd was on the island previously, just like Locke, and had to go off the island to "die", just like Locke and get Jack to bring him back. This is why Christian is alive now. Once back on the island, those dead off of the island are "resurrected" on their as a result of time having no relevance, so things can be "rewound" so to speak. This explains why Locke, who used to be crippled, can now walk and why Rose, who had cancer, had it disappear. All because they ended up on the island.

Next week, I'll go into why I believe that Jacob and Jack are the same person. And any other new theories I have after next week's episode "This Place Is Death".

Designing a Book Cover - The Third Layer

In my last post, I spoke about "The Second Layer" of designing a book cover, which is making sure you title stands out well.  Now we head to "The Third Layer". This one probably will seem obvious and it complements "The Second Layer" . It is your author name. It's important that your author name be positioned and sized correctly. There are a few approaches to this. For well known authors—for instance Stephen King or James Patterson—having the author name prominent and big on the cover is good. The reason is, their names are so popular that the author name sells the book more so than the book title sells it. As a self-published author you could use this thought process for your cover to give the impression that you are a popular author. Of course, your mileage will vary with this approach. The other option is to not allow the author name to dominate the content. So you would want it to be smaller than the title. You could even make it barely noticeable
