LOST Thought : Miles Ain’t Foolin’ (when it comes to time & space)

“Only fools are enslaved by time and space”. This was being said throughout the soundtrack of Karl’s Room 23 “experience” in Season Three’s Juliescent episode “Not in Portland”. Time and space got me thinking about Miles. He appears to be speaking to the dead in the present. But what if he is actually not a “ghostbuster” but a “timebuster'”? What if Miles is actually talking to the person in the past alive? Maybe this is why he needs to be in the exact location of the person(s)’ death i.e. the last position of where they were in linear time? And how he is a bit harsh about the person being “meat” like Naomi when she died. ( and probably because he’s…Miles) Maybe that when they die, he becomes aware of it immediately? And when Naomi was dead near Kate in the woods (finally) that was when the phone rang with Miles on it this time and he HAD to talk to Naomi right then. (Beginning of the End, Season 4) ? And when he landed on the Island, it was the first thing he wanted to do, even before trying to find Ben.

Now, in light of the new Dharma Initiative video from ComicCon 2008, Pierre Chang (Cheng…getting different info about this) alias Marvin Candle, alias Mark Wickmund, alias Edgar Halliwax, was asking someone out of the room to take a crying baby away. There has been speculation, since it was taken 30 years in the past, that this could be Miles. And if it is, was he knowledgeable about Charlotte being on the Island before because they lived on the Island in their childhood years and were saved from the upcoming purge and/or he was taken away soon after this to “the real world” and had access to his father’s research and records. And perhaps this is how he also knows who Ben is and why he would have 3.2 million dollars.

So, Miles Straume….yeah, probably not his real name. Good made up science oriented name, though. Right in line with something Pierre would do. Glad he didn’t go with his rumored first choice : Glowy McParaffin.

    Good Theory! I always thought it was a little too metaphysical to have a ghostbuster/psychic on the show. Your theory give a perfectly scientific and logical explanation.
    I’m going to link to this theory next week in my weekly Foreign Theories post. (if you don’t mind). I would do it this week but I’m trying to solve the mystery of who Jacob is. (Spoiler: I think I solved it, come by my blog on Thursday).

    Hey Izi,
    Thanks ! It was just rolling this around in my head and thought it might be an interesting take. I appreciate the link on your blog and mention in your F.T. post….don’t mind at all 🙂 .

    I’ll be on the lookout for your Jacob hypothesis . Sounds intriguing.
