I don't want to spoil anything for you west coasters so beware:
the "new" orientation video isn't the same person. The first "film" was narrated by Dr. Candle this one was Mark Rickman. The first one was missing an arm. Mark Rickman had both of his.

Also, the "miracle girl"... was that the girl in the dark doorway from the sumblymonal link to the Hanso site? I think so....

So Mark Rickman may be Marvin Candle's "bad twin" or atleast a clone?

Hi everyone. This is my first post, but I don't believe anyone else has mentioned what I'm about to: if you go to the "About The Life Extension Project" page, in the upper right hand corner is a picture of a young woman checking the heart rate of an older woman. Is it just me or do those two women look incredibly similar? Maybe it's just me, but I'd be curious to know if others see what I'm seeing.

In the beginning of the Gary Troup book, the editors say "nobody could have survived a tragedy like that plane crash, blah blah" How could the "real world" know that the plane crashed if they are off the map. Obviously nobody has found the wreckage yet, they havent seen any aircrafts looking for them yet. And the Pearl station is disappointing. And my DVR also cut out at too soon. Im starting to think there is definately human cloning involved here, but I haven't checked out hobanagarok's "incredibly similar" women (posted above) but this would explain some of the Hanso mystery, old age, etc. potentially. Any thoughts?

I agree Todd, i think cloning is a possibility. The fact that Hanso went back a whole Year during his travels could indicate there are two Hanso's who have been seen in different places. And all this talk about a bad twin? One good clone, one bad clone perhaps? Light and dark? Ying yang as seen in the Hanso logo?
Maybe the islanders we know are the bad clones, and the others are good clones? Is this insane talk? Maybe not....

Thats definatly not Charlotte the 'miracle girl' in the dark doorway. Her hair's not long enough for a start.

Interesting fact, the 'miracle' girl was played by Brooke Anderson who used to be in an old Australian kids tv show called ocean oddessy (or ocean girl as it was called in some countries).

Ive been waiting for some random old australian actors and actresses to show up and at last they have :P

JoshGutt - I just saw your entry about the guy from the orientation video. It is the same guy. In the first video his name was Candle, in this one it is Waxman (get it? candle, wax? hardy har har.) In the Swan film he did have a prosthetic arm and in the Pearl film he didn't, but the fake arm may have been a ply to help the people in the Swan beleive there really was an "incident."

Blogger tapdawg said...

christy, the other possiblity is that that film was made before the incident. and before the swan video was made. i still think that since there is a camera looking at the occupants of pearl... that it is also being watched by someone else too.

5/11/2006 09:48:00 AM  
Blogger jessandgabesmom said...

Actually the guy's name in the second video was "Wickman", still a play on "candle". Some people are saying it was "Widmore" etc. but I just watched it two more times and it is definitely "Wickman".

5/11/2006 10:00:00 AM  
Blogger Joe D said...

Here's a crazy theory, let me know what you guys think...

First, I'm guessing these orientation videos had to be made on the island, especially after the seeing Pearl. That means Candlewickman must be/have been on the island. According to these videos (unless the guys in them are twins...seemingly another Lost possibility), Candlewickman lost his arm sometime in 1980. Do we know another character who lost an arm? Yep. Rousseau told us Montand lost his arm 16 years ago (correct me if I'm wrong on that).

I remember one of the producers mentioning a while back that people have just been assuming the plane crashed in 2004, but that it's never been actually stated. (Which could very well be some Lost smoke+mirrors)

BUT..What if..
What if Candlewickman is really Montand (a possibility now that we know Candle was probably not his real name), and sometime in 1980, he lost his arm. Could it be possible that the plane has somehow crashed in 1996?

5/11/2006 10:19:00 AM  
Blogger ATL-Scott said...

The date on the "Pearl" video was 1980. It seemed to be more recent (color & on videotape) than the "Swan" video (b/w & on film) ... so I think "Swan" came before "Pearl." Anyone know the date from the "Swan" film?

"Could it be possible that the plane has somehow crashed in 1996?"

What's the significance of 1996?
.
I'd have to say it's not likely. Supposedly all this is happening in real time (Gary Troup's book just published, Alvar Hanso's travels, etc.)

5/11/2006 10:22:00 AM  
Blogger Joe D said...

1996 is 16 years after the incident in which Montand lost his arm. I was hypothesizing that the producers cryptic comment about the date of the plane crash, coupled with the fact someone (maybe Candlewickman) lost his arm in 1980 could lead to some possible time travel crazyness.

It's a pretty whacko theory...just trying to piece together some of the stuff we know with some of the new information.

5/11/2006 10:34:00 AM  
Blogger Ryan said...

Completely random, but I thought it was interesting that all that active projects have an introduction by Alvar Hanso EXCEPT for the genomic institute, which means it's probably Mittelwork's project, and therefore sinister!

Just a random thought that popped into my head: you know how "Persephone" accuses THF of "setting land speed records for subverting authority"? Kind of an odd way of saying it, right? Didn't Desmond tell Jack (in the stadium or on the island, can't recall) that HE was attempting to set a land speed record?

Blogger ChrisTF said...

If I remember correctly someone had hacked thedharmainitiative.org and found nothing right? Well if you click the dharma logo, a quicktime video opens, with the swan orientation, not sure why. And something I noticed in the Pearl orientation video, you saw like from a camp, people doing jumping jacks, and a girl and a guy is walking, the girl looks like the girl who turns around when you click her in clue #29. Am I wrong?

5/11/2006 12:34:00 PM  
Blogger ChrisTF said...

And in response to when the swan video was made, it says in the end copyright The Hanso foundation 1980. All rights reserved. So it seems they are made at the same time.

5/11/2006 12:39:00 PM  
Blogger Lino said...

Maybe 1980 would be when the Hanso Foundation was founded. Then the videos could be from anytime.

5/11/2006 12:53:00 PM  
Blogger Dedjezter said...

Possible spoilers




1. First let me say that Candle and wickman are the same guy... Often when you re edit something the copyright date is still left the same.

2. The 1980 is the date of the copyright for the films... not the date OF the films... swans could have been edited after the incident or just after all the films were made the first time.
There are NO tv's in swan station just a projector and a screen so they keep useing film there while they use other media in other stations... maybe one has a dvd player... we don't know yet.

3. Good job to everyone who has been working faster than the producers... seeing as we got the OBEY clue before they gave it away last night.

4. Libby may be dead but that does not mean that she IS or ISN'T Liddy ... Some people are not using their real names sort of... Like SAWYER or HURLEY those are not their real names... Hurly gave his real name, some have not.

5. The MIRACLE chick from the EP. ? could be persaphone... has anyone heard of a haircut... maybe she was put in the same hospital as Hurly, Libby, and others as well.

6. Widmore Laboratories is not a part of the game...Widmore.org maybe, but The labs is not... IMMACULATE CONCEPTION PREGNANCY TEST... I mean come on.. it's just a joke

dedjezter:

Again with the liddy/libby thing, why? Theres no connection between the two besides there name being similar. It may be true, but at this stage its no more plausable than say liddy being a man and being hurley's twin.

And about the 'miracle' girl being the girl in the hospital, again its possible, but for all we know she may never appear in lost ever again.

These theories are all well and good, but most of them dont have a leg to stand on.

Blogger TT said...

I've been investigating the Alvar Hanso (Is it a woman? Clone?) mystery. So far, I have concluded that these are my two favorite possibilities. If (s)he is a woman, maybe its an anagram ... SHARON ALVA? I found some info on her from what looks like old, fan-made lost sites, but most interesting, I found a random PDF from a non-profit humanitarian group in ZAMBIA! Sharon Alva is listed as Director of Support Services (http://www.youthkzn.co.za/components/myfiles/download.php?File=users/Admin/yfcpdf/ar2003.pdf) that is the link if you want to check it out. I have to say, I think its random coincidence, if ABC created a fake charitable African AIDS/education organization that would be somewhat vile. Anyways, I think they are cloning some people for sure, including Asian scientists, Eastern European theorists, and perhaps the entire Oceanic Flight 815. From the very beginning of the show, it just has not seemed plausible to me that they are in A) the real, tangible world B) Another planet/dimension C) Communal dream state. The only options viable, to me, are either they are clones, moving up some sort of experimental (socializing?) ladder, or they have travelled through time (not space/dimensions) due to electromagnetic disturbances (flipping of global poles?) or finally, they are in purgatory. This was my very first orientation, but apparently the producers discredited the idea. Still, I am partial to this notion, due to the "Gary Troup" (anagram) book and also the whole Dharma, theological/spiritual undertones as well as the moral dilemmas. The "saved" ones seem to pass on to a better life, maybe the bad ones stay on the island, become evil others, and torment new arrivals for the rest of eternity (Hades, Persephone, Cerberus mythology) I have nothing to do today, so keep the ideas coming, I love this stuff.

I dont think Alvar is a woman, or Libby = Liddy = Persephone... Cmon guys, there is not much ground for theese theories. The anagrams are not clues, since if they are intencional, they can be methafors.

Hi everyone. I have two things I was hoping to get feedback on. The first I mentioned earlier, but no one has commented on it:
if you go to the "About The Life Extension Project" page, in the upper right hand corner is a picture of a young woman checking the heart rate of an older woman. Is it just me or do those two women look incredibly similar? Maybe it's just me, but I'd be curious to know if others see what I'm seeing.
The other thing I was hoping to discuss is what someone else said about the year that flight 815 crashed. If you go to oceanic-air.com they mentions the month and day of the flight but not the year. I wonder if the plane really did crash at a time other than present day (obviously it couldn't have been too long ago/ too far ahead because of the technology, but the real question isn't when but why does it matter?). Just some things I've been working on.

Okay okay - for people like me that are playing the game without doing things like hacking into flash code, screen capturing images, etc. - a quick flash made it look like Sun...and it still looks like it could be a young Sun, although I know its not.

Still, now my eyes are focused in your screen captures at what the magnifying glass is highlighting on the hat...a face of some sort.

Spoiler:



Lostforever: I think he pretty much admitted it. If you didn't catch that connection, you'd have had to be blind. The more intersting about that is that has said he was a fake! did Christian manuever Claire over there to get her on the plane? I think she's his daughter and her mother won't let him near her.

On Pearl Orientation:
1: Video tape as opposed to film.
2: Candle gave a different name. Mark Wickham.
3: He's dressed casually, instead of clinically
4: Has his left hand.
5: Looked younger even though the Pearl is 5 of 6 and the Swan is 3 of 6. Date at end of both is 1980
7: Swan is B&W and Pearl is color.

I didn't realize the psychic had a family. I didn't even remember him but as soon as he came on screen my sister who's the LOST fanatic around here was like "O my gosh! It's Claire's psychic!"

I love how everyones lives and pasts seem to be all linked.

Alot of them with Jack's dad... I have a feeling he'll play a big roll in Hanso.

Hey all. Dr. Candle's name on the Pearl video is Waxman, not Wickman. The actor who plays his is credited as such: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0154236/

And I am still holding by my theory that the woman in the hospital gown is Karen DeGroot. (Don't know why, it's just my gut.) And that the clue clip is on the island - it just doesn't look like a hospital to me. (Low ceilings, sketchy lighting, etc.)

There it a typo showing on thehansofoundation.org website that I didn't notice before - can someone confirm if it is new or not?

Under the Worldwide Wellness Program project, in the second paragraph to the section left of the teacher picture, 4th sentence down reads "means by which to live full and safer lives. The" then it cuts off...and the next line starts "The Worldwide..."

Hi there! Just started today and can't believe how far behind I am already! I tried starting last week, but could not get through on the 877 number. I'm completely out of the loop on the Sprite-related things, but I'm thinking references to things like Sprite & Monster.com are creative product placement ads in a time when fast forwarding through commercials via our DVR's is a real drag for advertisers. We certainly are a captive audience in an ARG! It's still plenty fun as long as the pharmaceutical companies don't join in. Their propaganda is widespread enough as it is. Anyway, thanks for the great site! It's awesome how much detail people are picking up on! It’s been a blast catching up even with my late start!

Hi guys, love the info on your site, it's the best thing going for the game.

Here's one thing I saw on the Hanso site and thought I would pass it on...Near the copyright, about 30 pixels left and down, there is an invisible button (use tab key to find buttons in flash). When you click this, it shifts the colors of the background. I clicked it like 100 times expecting something else to happen but only the background changed. Maybe it's a toggle or a modifier for something else on the site, but someone with more spare time should look into it and let the community know if it leads anywhere

i see what you are referring to, i havent noticed that before though but it looks like a typo....but who knows!

Anyone else here think that the Wellness program is the re-named "accelerated remote viewing project" as referred to when you call the hanso number? i cant remember whose voicemail had a message about it, but it said something about giving something a more public face....

So is the site driveshaftband.com a possible game site? I saw the section of the registration information for websites on the main page, but couldn't figure out if the owner/register of driveshaftband.com is an ingame type of owner or not?

The reason I ask is this one paragraph on the site in a press release about Charlie and his brother:

THE UNFORESEEN: Rumors of a DriveSHAFT reunion remained strong until silenced on September 22, 2004. Charlie, 27 at the time, was on board Oceanic Flight 815 when it went missing over the Pacific Ocean. Liam, however, holds firm to the belief that his brother is not another statistic of rock tragedy. "We've all just got to keep the faith. It's what Charlie would do."

Just getting into things, not sure if that's been around forever or not but...is it a possible game site?

Good thought, Sarah, about the "put a public face on it". You may well be right.

I'm still holding tight to the theory I posted day before yesterday about Karen DeGroot=Persephone. Especially after getting such a good look at her again last night. I think someone asked who the bearded guy was who is with her. That's her husband, Gerald.
I also still like my other theory: Libby=Liddy and I don't care what anyone says. I may be wrong, yes, but I'm going to be stubborn about it for now. My momma aways told me to stick to my guns and so I shall!!

I sent this to the blog moderator as well, but I thought I'd post it here too to see what you guys think of it. By all means let me know if this has already come out, but it seems to be a potentially pertinent clue to the game:

On the old Hanso Foundation website at "http://emri.perception.net/", on the Alvar Hanso page "http://emri.perception.net/hanso/alvarhanso.html", when you click the image of him an animation of the computer prompt appears, reading:

HELLO?
:> HELLO?
WHO IS THIS?
:> MOLE.

Then a confidential letter from the Global Health Organization to the Hanso Foundation appears. It turns out this letter is written by the same person as the first letter revealed by Persephone, Jacques Maillot, and it is dated October 4, 2005, about 10 days after the previous exchange. This time Maillot is writing from the Global Health Organization instead of the Global Welfare Consortium, but both are based in Geneva. Overall, it seems to indicate that this man was paid off by the Foundation in the form of a generous donation to his fund, presumably to keep quiet about it.

I don't feel like this necessarily leads anywhere, but it is clearly related to the clues that Persephone has offered, which makes me think it's somehow important to the story.

Am I really the first person to notice this, or it already old news?

I don't dimiss thing just because they are "obvious" The sublymonal solution was pretty darn obvious. When the clock said OBEY you clicked it. Then there were six screens. One for each number. Not exactly a stretch there. =o/ I'm sure some puzzles will be easier and more obvious than others, THANK GOD. Those of us who may lack time, technology, brain-power and, in my case patience when it came to the morse code, will be quite happy to have some simpler puzzles.

I do have a question if the "Givus The Boy" thing in the flight tracker section is new, never noticed that before either...http://www.oceanic-air.com/trackresults.htm

dharmajen,

I looked at that flight tracker thing just yesterday because I had never explored that Oceanic site too well, and I swear that Giveus THE Boy thing was NOT there. I had noticed that all the other flights had landed except 815. I think that would have jumped out at me if I had seen that. Not positive, but I think that's new! Maybe someone is toying with us? :-)

The Giveus THE BOY thing is old--been around for at least a week if not longer. and clicking on the flight chart and getting different pop ups for different characters ipre-dates the 2nd season--click on Ana Lucia's seat in very back row and it will take you to a mini-movie that will end w/a notice when the 2nd season starts.

Hey guys! This is my first post. I've got two things for you. First of all, I went to the oceanic-air.com site and saw the overlayed text. I couldn't read it all on my computer so I copy-pasted it into word. When I did, there were 2 drawn pictures that came with the text. I have no idea what they are supposed to mean. They are kinda crazy.

Second, has anyone seen the part in the Mental Health Appeal on the Hanso site where it says "Inquire today"? I wonder if there's a password that goes there.

I really didn't want lost to be all about multiple universes and string/quantum thoeretical concepts, but I think this may be a factor for our Survivors after all. I know this has been around forever, but I just noticed that the official Lost ABC page with the forums, etc. uses a multi-planar (ie multi-dimensional) spinning grid graphic as a loading gif. This may be a subtle hint as to one of the "meanings" of the Island. I am still going with cloning as a strong factor of the whole Island mystery. I am starting to feel as if JJ Abrams started multiple explanations for the island (spiritual - purgatory, sci-fi - other dimension/time, genetics - cloning/genome moding) so that they have the freedom to end the show however he feels appropriate. This lack of new evidence is making me pessimistic, dammit. Do not disappoint us, we are the backbone of this marketing strategy, ABC!

Hey I also have noticed all day that there are words like whited out in the news release for the math division of Hanso on the hanso website. Is this something old or what??

Also I just went through all the clues and just finished and everything still works. if you are on a pc clear all flash .swf files to see things again...

On behalf of the Degroots, Alvar Hanso, and all of us at the Dharma Initiatve
Namaste and good luck.

Has anyone noticed when you go in to send joop a message that after you go through all the clues there that at the bottom while you are waiting on the guys face to show up is a little oval with RSS in it and then there is a login box? Does anyone have an idea on what to enter there?

1. go to the newsletter page at thehandsofoundation.org

2. zoom in on the picture of the earth on the left of "find out more here"

3. tilt your head (or rotate the picture) 90 degrees to the right. Squint your eyes.

4. that is, without a doubt, A FACE. Could that be Alvar Hanso?

Ok quick question... oceanicflight815.com.... does anyone know the code to enter at the bottom of the screen under the barcode???


If you click on the light, it now links you to the hanso website. But it looks like it's an old cached version because none of the new links, weird squiggles, etc, show up.

I don't remember that link being there before.

"theislandiswaiting" is what goes in that password box. It just gives a script page with what could be spoilers for the show.

Its been known since way before the games started so its nothing to do with it, albeit very interesting.

Blogger nashgirl said...

My theory - go to this link http://www.fastboot.com/hanso/swf/ and watch the "updated" dates. If it hasn't been updated since the last clue was released, there are no more clues to follow yet. Also, the "speaker" on abc's site (http://blogs.abc.com/inside_the_experience/) leaks clues the day they are put on the Hanso site. This may save you some time from obsessing on the game when you should be at work (like me!)

Karl, which password box are you talking about for the "theislandiswaiting" code?

Also, omnibusdog, there IS definitely a face there. Nice spot!

Its the password box mentioned in the post before mine.

And Ive look again, there is nothing that even resembles a face in that map, sorry.

5/12/2006 10:30:00 AM

Ahhh, I was looking at the map rather than the other picture. I can see the face, but its not enough like a face to be any sort of clue. Just a coincidence me thinks.

Hey! Has anyone seen this video clip of Gary Troup on Amazon? I was looking up the book Bad Twin and there's a little note on the product page-- Amazon.com Exclusive. There's a link there to an interview with Troup.

I only just started the game yesterday so I don't know if I'm seeing new stuff or just catching on late.

catching on late im afraid :P

There are 3 clips in total, one on barnes and noble's site and the other was in some newsletter apparently. Theres copies of all three on youtube.

Posted in another thread, but thought some here might be interested:

Looks like the admin. is working on a message board. Yay! This is the best ARG site around. For now, anyone interested in my BAd Twin thoughts can go to my lj. houses_vicodin. It is a work in progress, and just my opinons, but I'd like to hear what you think.

ALSO... Twin theory: Candle and Weckman appear to be twins. Could the whited out "hanso" on alvar's page be magnus? Could they be twins? Remember on the pics from the wall that dropped in the hatch? There was that notation of the known final resting place of Magnus Hanso/ Black Rock... Twins must figure in here somewhere....

I am up to date on all things experience. But when I click on any of those gary troup vid's nothing happens is this because I am on a mac or are they gone... this happends when I go to amazon, barnes, and the youtube. Any ideas how I can view them?

If they flew four hours of a 14.5 hour flight (SYD AUS to LAX)
Then they turned and flew (I Think) 1 hour toward the phillipines <--sp. that would put them near the marshall islands in the south pacific or (i forget the name) a small island above guam...and as a note... the marshall islands were once used to test nukes...
Also note that turning toward the phillipines would be the wrong thing to do as they would have been closer to hawaii than to where they decided to go.
anyone else have a theory as to where they are??

**************SPOILER: Season 2, ep 21 - "?"******************











I've just watched this episode and I've realized something... Didn't the game clue "Miracle" we had refer to the miracle girl? Am I crazy or the game told us something that we would see later? So it's true that we must connect the game to the show... did anyone think of the continue for the Miracle clue? Maybe based on ep 21?

Don't know if it was stated already - but some people have been suggested that the two doctors on the orientation tapes could possibly be clones. No, they are the same person. In the first Swan tape he has a prostetic arm - two possibilities here...either it was fake to make it look like there really was an incident, or it was real and good ol Alvar has found a way to regrow limbs or surgery to put it back on somehow. He is a genius, it is possible. HA i love this.

Spoiler alert************************





Fear-me
Yes I think the game told us of this before hand, but it was not a real clue to the game or at least it has not been yet. I think it was meant only for the people in the US who found it. If it eventually leads somewhere I will be happy.

The producers said the Show wouldnt lead into the game... but the game can leak back into the show... does this make sence to any one else???

Also does anyone think the Game has already jumped the Dharma brand shark already... no new clues ...the last one was given twice then nothing... I am frustrated.

5/12/2006 12:46:00 PM  
Blogger Karl said...

Id say they are almost certainly the same person. If you compare pictures from the swan film and the pearl tape he looks a lot mored 'aged' in the swan film. Its looks pretty obvious to me that despite the same year on the copyright, they were filmed some years apart during which time he lost his arm.

I doubt very much they are twins, as that wouldnt explain the different surnames. Why would you hide that you had a twin despite being in two films made by the same compant. Doesnt make sense.

Clones? Maybe, but Id want to see some actual evidence for that.

Also note both of his pseudonames are related Candle and Wickman. Candle and wick could be related to flame which is the name of one of the other hatches on the island....or not.

Either way I think he has little, or nothing to do with the game at this point.

Interesting note(I dont know if anyone has posted this):
After looking at the bigspaceship1.org's source, there is a comment note: nl.quicknet = reference lindholm review stats at http://www.interchange.ubc.ca/web-stats/2004/Mar/Mar10.html

When you go to the site you find: 0.06 0.06 481516 30 | nl.quicknet

First off, has anyone else noticed that the "S" in the Hanso logo is bolder than the rest of the letters? Along with this are the other active project "logos"--each with bolded letters. (i.e. LEP--the EP is in bold font.) Just a thought, but maybe they are an anagram for something?
