Okay fellow LOST affectionados, here comes the good stuff…

Danger Will Robinson…spoilers will not be specifically announced. If you don’t wanna know, stop now!
Many of these are older, but I need to set up some background. Many people have speculated from the beginning a couple of theories:
- They’re all dead and in Purgatory…pfffftttt…
- Or that there is only ONE survivor, who has split into several personalities in an effort to keep from going crazy—as each character does seem to represent one personality trait over all others.
First, a couple of links for minor stuff…then I’m going to get to a major theory that just blew me away when I first read it. You might want to wait til I get it all posted before commenting…then PLEASE feel free to add on anything else you’ve found or thought up on your own. Literary and psychological references abound. These writers are GENIUSES.

One of the earliest well-thought-out theories was the ‘mirror theory’…it seemed to hold up for awhile, but I don’t think things have been falling into place for that since near the end of the first season, and this season. Ooops…I’ve lost the link I had where someone explained it so well, but like I said, it has pretty much fallen by the wayside. If I find it later, I’ll post it.
In the meantime, here are a couple of timelines to just refresh your memories (not totally brought up to date yet at the end, but they both start wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy in the beginning):
