Clue #110 - Fragment Code "ESJ4X6EBNC"

Fragment Code "ESJ4X6EBNC" was found by tapdawg (and others - see below) outside of the Entertainment Weeky building in Los Angeles, California on the side of a car. Lost Ninja gives mad props to tapdawg on his blog! Way to go!!! The video fragment is of Mr. Beardy's voice saying, "...all of the support you will need, including regular medicine and food drops will be made in perpetuity."

In case you were wondering how tapdawg knew to be at the EW building, check the first comment on the previous post on this blog. Also, check out Matt the Pale's summary of all the found fragment codes at...Matt the Pale's HansoExposed Video Fragment Code List

Thanks to Lavenda and DazzedElf for emailing us the latest info on this clue! Also, shout out to "unseenpresence" who was in L.A. mainly as a representative for the numbers forum and "Sam G" who was in L.A. as a representative for the Fuselage. Great team effort guys!

[reposting this as I accidentally stuck it in the last Lag Alleviation post's comments...]

Hm, "perpetuity", eh? So who is still doing the food drops? :) Seems that maybe THF didn't outright cancel DHARMA and the nature of the current phase of the experiment is such that it's in their best interests to keep the Others/hostiles alive.

Then again, "medicine" is mentioned, yet Ethan insisted that their vaccine is in short supply. Does this mean that there wasn't going to be a drop for a while, or that the Others don't know about the drop made in the jungle (where Charlie found more of the supposed vaccine and the injection device)?

And the helicopter landing in water? I'd say it's another pointer to the fabled underwater hatch. We know that supplies are dropped to the island proper via parachute, and clearly they're not loading supplies on the helicopter from the water, so...yeah. Very cool fragment overall.

n.i.k.: my thinking on the drops is that alvar set them up (contracted them out to paik or widmore?) to go on indefinitely. this explains why they keep occurring even though dharma was supposedly shut down. this also keeps alive the possibility that thf beleive no one is on the island (at least in 2006 and probably as of 2004). i think this little tidbit is finally giving us more answers (or at least hinting at them.) very interesting stuff. as for the food and vaccine "shortage", the drops are for the number of peoople dharma had. it's very possible the number of people on the island now is greater than when it was just dharma scientists. do you think that tower supposed to be the transmitting station rousseau talks about?

Hey, folks.

Here's how this one went down. :)

tapdawg was on chat with LostNinja and calling David here at TLEC.

I was updating to the numbers forum.

Sam G was updating to the Fuselage.

I got there around 4:45 AM.
Tapdawg got there a little while later.
Sam G got there a little later still.

All three of us watched, looked, checked around the building, etc. updating as we went with the various people.

we were all in front of the building when tapdawg cried out, "I See It!" We all then converged on the car as it parked.

tapdawg got his photos updated directly as he had his laptop there. So if people want to credit him--they can, as he's got the photos up. I didn't have my laptop there and just got back from the site.

As far as I'm concerned, this was a -truly- joint effort from all three individuals, fascinatingly enough (as far as I'm concerned) basically representing three different major forums.

oxillini:

Interesting thoughts, I could see the drops being contracted out to Widmore or Paik, but I've got the feeling that TWM would stand a fair chance of knowing about the contract if this were so. Perhaps it's possible that TWM *is* aware of folks (at least the ex-DHARMA scientists/Others) being on the island but isn't letting the rest of THF know about it? Maybe the ruse TWM's insisting the folks he's presenting is insisted upon to help hide the truth from those about to carry out said ruse? It would be the almost requisite twisty-turn we've come to expect... Could the goal of this mission be to ultimately eliminate the "hostiles" and clear the island for the experimentation to begin anew?

As for the radio tower, it's a good possibility. There's only one we know of from the show, and so it's not far fetched, but not necessarily accurate, as we have not yet seen all of the island. I wonder what the encryption protocol was in place for...were the numbers being broadcast originally, or was there some other signal else before that?

n.i.k.: my thinking on twm knowing about the drops is that he has to know. after all, he's seen this orientation film before. however, i'm not convinced he knows people are there. he assumes there will just be crates full of food piled up from drops that no one is using.

your ideas on conning the people on the helgus into eliminating the people on the island is interesting. it certainly fits the twists of the "lost" world, but my thinking is that he has the money and the power to just buy a paramilitary force whom he wouldn't have to con into offing the island residents. why risk your scientists, etc by making them fight islanders?

like i said, i'm just glad to have some theory stuff to diuscuss instead of just waiting for another glyph to be released.

TMW may also not be aware that there maybe a question as to the "time space" (for lack of a better term) that the island occupies. For all that we know, the scientists that he is leading to the island may actually be the islanders that are there. sort of a time loop.
Remember at the end of last season, there was an EMP burst of some sort. This maybe the opening of the gateway to the island's "past"
I have had many questions as to the actual time / space that the island occupies. the facilities seem too aged to have only been less than 30 years old. Add to that the Statue Foot that was seen in the last episode leads me to beleive that the island is something that does not occupy the same time line as we (or the ARG) occupy

8/21/2006 11:15:00 AM  
Blogger n.i.k. said...

I was waiting for you to bring that up. There's more than one way to eliminate a bunch of people than gunning them down in cold blood. I think the virus could play into this rather heavily, and in one of two ways:

1) The virus is the ruse. In the continuum of the "DHARMA scientists rebelled" theory, the quarantine signs probably kept the first replacement teams in the hatches, at least for a while. The Others seem to believe that there is indeed a virus on the island. If you can fill the island with a slew of people made to seem infected, you can drive the Others into hiding. They can no longer get supplies from the drops because the concentration of the infected is so heavy that it's better not to risk infection. As such, they run out of supplies and starve to death.

2) The virus is real and the Others have somehow been made more succeptible (perhaps through the "vaccine"?) to a new strain of it developed by THF and other partners; they are the "precise genetic targets" to be targeted by THF crew preparing to go in to the island.

It's getting more speculative, so we'll have to wait and see what the forthcoming clips have to offer us. I want more Mittlewerk clips, as these will give us a much better idea of what the plan consists.

n.i.k.: good points. i guess i assumed you meant twm intended to just gun down those on the island. i'll be very interested to find out what the deal is with the quarantined areas of the helgus. they don't necessarily mean twm has a virus with him, the people watching the video could be genetically modified in such a way that they have no immune system and thus must be protected. this is, of course, all speculative, but that's my favorite part of lost and this game!

Okay... here is Jeff "Doc" Jensen's response to the negative criticism (attacks?) people have been giving him...


Hey, Lost fans,

I just wanted to clarify my position on "playing the game," and my unfortunate and unintended appearance on the leader board.

1. My appearance on the leader board was unintentional. Trust me. I'm probably not at liberty to divulge the behind the scenes of all this, but let me just say that for various reasons, I needed to make sure the glyph/code was active before I exposed it to the public. That the process of corroboration has put me on the leader board is purely incidental. There are other means at my disposal to confirm the activation of the clue, but due to time constraints and other limitations last week, entering the clue was the quickest, most efficient way to check. I really wanted to get the clue out there ASAP, and in fact, was really hoping it could have been discovered prior to Monday morning.

2. Today, I plan on asking the administrators of The Lost Experience to remove my name from the leader board. I'm with all of you: I don't think it's appropriate for the "Doc J" entity to be both playing the game when in several ways he has been PART of the game.

I feel badly that my clumsy way of having fun and playing with y'all has rubbed some of you the wrong way.

(Can we be friends now, Ninja?)

All of you should listen to me. I told people all weekend that JEff was working to get the code out by himself... no big displays, just one guy.

Heh, I even thought he might have it on his car (posted in the window perhaps), since Ninja's clue was about it "traveling". Of course, tracking it to his nearby house might have been too much.

why do people feel the need to spam these already-gigantic comment boards down with numbering what post you are and saying absolutely nothing in the process?

Really, is it that much to ask that you only post if you have something to actually say so people don't need to go wading through the first 20 comments on each entry just to figure out what's important? Pretty pretty please? I promise, people can count, and there is a much higher value on actual content then spam. ;)

Sorry for the rant.

I upped the resolution on the ad thanks to a suggestion by someone who's name I cannot find at the moment,then someone else (TheRealGodfather) figured out that it was to an ad agency- tbwa\

an ad agency that merged with the ad agency that is in the Chait/ day building, the building in Venice that uniquin suggested yesterday, and that I begged for someone to go to.


Late last night is when I found the TBWA\ on the samsonite ad and thought it was the code itself, but it didn't work. I thought perhaps there was a misprint and was trying to get someone to confirm what I found, but we didn't get anywhere until this morning.

the higher res scan is here:

The DSL is on the C-A-S-E post.

the title had me looking for a suitcase or briefcase Manny said the clue was in a throwaway line in that post, I believe. one of them was:

'Fiberoptician
12:22pm Why? The thing's been up and it's over. The earth is still spinning around the sun and you still don't have a girlfriend. All is normal in this here universe."

The suitcase ad is for the X'ion Spinner. I found the code up and over on the left in the ad.

smokey,
I highly doubt there is any connection between the Samsonite ad/ad agency and TLE. There's no reason to think up till now that Samsonite would be involved in the game. I'm sure it's just a "stamp" the agency put on the ad because they're the ones that are doing Samsonite's marketing. We have no indication that the glyph was there before its sighting this morning; in fact we have no idea where it was before it was spotted where were told it would be this morning. I think you're stretching things quite a bit and making big assumptions that we have no evidence for...

Good job, glyph hunters. Sometimes "the light of day" just means "the light of day," huh? At least it didn't cause any traffic accidents. If I been driving and noticed him with that on the side of his car, I'm sure I would have rear ended somebody. :-) Whew!

Blogger Shakey said...

nitesea & dfizz:

At this stage in the game, anything that isn't spoonfed to us is a stretch. We all wanted this stage of the game to be taxing and involve some fun, yet now we have the opportunity to actually hunt there are now too many naysayers poo-pooing work that others have done.

OK, Samsonite haven't been in-game so far but who's to say that they're going to stay out of it? And wasn't this Samsonite advert opposite the Verizon ad? Can't quite remember that or not, but if it was then it's been commonplace in other ARGs to look at opposite or back faces of pages with an in-game company/advertiser to find clues.

This could have been a one-off deal with Samsonite, this could be just a tag for the marketing company after all.

Yes it is a stretch but RoT have been highly obscure since they came into the game. But to use such harsh terms as "highly doubt" and "big assumptions" seems out of place.

Isn't this game fueled by big assumptions? Hell we're assuming that Mittelwerk and THF are evil simply because some hacker bint is banging on that they are! That assumption has got us to this point.

Sorry for the rant, and maybe it's just our collective frustrations at the way this glyph hunt has been run, but you really didn't see such knocking of suggestions and outright dismissal of people's suggestions, theories and investigation in Act I, so please don't start now.

Shakey - Right there with you. There is still a lot of speculation and theory right now. We have a great deal of facts that we can rely on but we also have a ton of unanswered questions. I don't think anything is out of the question at this point.

Has the Research Blog had anything new lately?

8/21/2006 12:59:00 PM

thrasher: I'd like to get a workup on nanotechnology on the Research blog but have been too busy. I also don't think I'm qualified since I've only read the occassional science article about it. Anyone out there have more expertise?

8/21/2006 01:02:00 PM  
Blogger n.i.k. said...

Agreed, Shakey. While there's no strong reason to believe Samsonite is involved, there isn't any strong evidence that they're not, apart from relying on precedent. Any doubters are free not to pay attention to said advertisements...there are enough people involved that we can be sure that someone will catch anything that winds up being important. This is one of the key points of the game: lots of eyes watching many places, lots of information being exchanged, and lots of speculation. If the game is well-planned, this would be required, and precedent alone should not be enough to go on; the game should be unpredictable. It has been predictable for a while now and will hopefully start to get a bit crazier soon.

We don't have to agree on everything. Time will sort out all of the debates. This is not a contest between who is right and wrong, or who finds the glyphs the fastest (though those who do certainly deserve credit for their efforts), or anything like that. This game is a collaborative effort between all of us.

Or some really ass-backwards marketing scheme. We'll know for sure when it's over. ;)

Oh hang on that's what my boss says before I prove myself right on everything...

Ty peeps ya given me a grin :D

And as far as the nanotechnology goes all I have to offer is it's unlikely LOST will be using nanobots because programmed, decision-making machines that small are still beyond our technology, but there's no reason why nanomachines can't be used - pre-programmed tools with a set task in a big swarm.

I know it's semantics but the LOST writing team did flatly state the monster was not nanobots, but nanomachines are a different entity altogether.

And lets be honest here - if the show isn't a metaphysical/supernatural drama (i.e. the Losties are not in Purgatory and the island isn't in Hades or a Hollow Earth thing) then how else do you you explain a big, environmentally-reactive black cloud tearing up trees yet not tearing Locke and Ecko a new one?

Isn't this show supposed to based on and explained with acceptable (if not real) science?

To TPTB:

If you are going to release a clue, MAKE SURE THE CODE WORKS ON HE.COM! One of the first things I tried when I saw the Jeep ad, as I'm sure others did too, was enter 'theflashlight' at HE.com and of course it did not work. I proceeded to spend some time trying to figure out what else they meant by it, found anagrams for it including "the last flight" which made me search oceanicflight815.com and such. but of course that time was wasted because TPTB dropped the ball again and let a clue come out before making it work on he.com

It's supposed to be, yes. I don't see any other pseudo-science explanation for the monster than the nanomachine one. One could argue that somehow the smoke is actually some sort of metal-rich gas and somehow the island's magnetic field can be manipulated to move it around both above ground and through the vent system we've heard about, but that doesn't explain all the weirdness with images appearing in it, or how it manages to drag people.

Then again, we do have Walt and his strange abilities, super-fake-looking CGI birds calling Hurley's name, and other stuff like that there, so maybe we shouldn't trust the producers' claims as to "real science" explanations for all the weird stuff. But I'm going to be way-pissed if the monster turns out to be like, say, the id monster in Forbidden Planet. ;)

Cool! I'm such a wanna be. But science isn't my field, just something I like to read and speculate about.

The article could start with general definitions of nanotechnology including fictional uses from other science fiction genres. I found a great defintion in the Encyclopeadia Galatica online.

Then I was thinking it would be nice to take each of the areas Hanso is working in (from their old site) and describe how nanotechnology could be playing a role. Only I don't know enough to do that for all the areas. Nor do I know if such speculation would be helpful on a *research* blog.

So those are my current ideas? Any feedback?
