One of the running themes of the show Lost was embodied in the struggle between Jack and Locke... the whole "Man of Science, Man of Faith" struggle. Locke was a believer in the unexplained and that by following signs of faith, good things would come. Jack on the other hand was a skeptic and always demanded for a reason or an explanation behind everything, ...

In the end, Christian says 2 things: Everyone dies. Some before you. Some long time after you. The other is: There is no now... here. So it can be concluded that the alternate LA is not present in any moment in the timeline. It is just the place where people go when they die, irrelevantly of when that happens.

In the episode where Eko dies, "The Cost of Living" in Season 3, Locke finds out that Eko has seen the Monster. Locke tells him that he's seen it too: "It was a very bright light. It was beautiful." And similarly he tells check in the Season 1 episode "White Rabbit", "I've looked into the eye of this island and what I saw was beautiful." So that suggests ...

I think it may have been because his name was crossed off of the list. In the Lostpedia (Weaknesses > Candidacy): The Man in Black also killed Eko, whose name appeared on the lighthouse candidate list, after the man refused to atone for past actions. This suggests a further loophole. The Candidates page shows the name "EKO" as being crossed off. It ...

Are you absolutely sure it's not on the soundtrack? Track six of the soundtrack, "Hollywood and Vines," has that melody, on cello, and seems to be a good fit. Here is a link to YouTube with the track in question. The part you ask about starts about 50 seconds in. Incidentally, it's in Pilot - Part 2, were they leave the beach as you remember. This is when ...

It's a solid fact in Lost that The Man in Black has morphing ability. I think the narrative of what happened leading up to Mr. Eko's death leaves little doubt that the Man in Black had either removed, disposed, or taken control of Yemi in order to manipulate Eko (from Lostpedia): However, Eko found that his brother's body was no longer in the plane. ...

As I understand it, there was not a "rule" that said that someone had to be dead for MiB to impersonate them. The Lostpedia has a good explanation of it. According to the site, during a podcast with the Lost producers, they said: The apparitions [of Walt] "may or may not" be Walt and were "monster-related". That being said, MiB was a manipulator ...

You're right regarding the Man In Black: In this form he could manifest as deceased individuals, most frequently as his former body. That means that these were visions. Their origin wasn't explained. I think the most logical theory is: since we know that Walt had paranormal abilities, it can be assumed that he was telepathically connecting with ...

As I wrote in the comments my understanding always was that it was Jacob, who brought DHARMA to the island and this is how they fit the universe. In the end they were not different from the 'Oceanic 816' survivors or the Spanish ship crew. They were people that Jacob wanted on The Island. Whether it was him behind DHARMA creation or he just used an existing ...
