As LOST first flashed on the large Easter Island like statue and spent time down in a Egyptian hieroglyph covered temple, I started trying to remember this book. After last night's finale of LOST I am more convinced than ever that the "pseudo-science" of Chariots of the Gods has played a big part in LOST. In fact I am convinced that Jacob and his fellow islander and sworn enemy (who may or may not have a corporal form, and who may or may not be smokey or maybe a HAL like computer) are aliens. Watchers ,"it always end the same way" waiting in classic fashion until the human race has a breakthrough so they are worthy of contact. On what do I base this astounding theory you ask? J.J. Abrams is about my age and from NY too so I would bet that we both read the book and watched the movie on channel 9 sometime in our childhoods, perhaps many times, since they repeated things often. I'm not saying things are as simple as that but I think there is a connection. Thoughts?
