LOST. It's killing me. AHHHHH!!!

I have wasted my whole day on this. What is "this?" Well, I'll tell you.

4 8 15 16 23 42

That's what. Take away 42 (the bonus number, fans of Hitchhiker's Guide know that it's the "answer to life." So, take that number away and you have a series of nonprime number of 1s in binary expansion. Which means.... nothing.

Or, (I swear to god, I am not making this up) you can use the WOLFRAM SEQUENCE and obtain those numbers. But... all that means is David Fury (who wrote last night's LOST ep) is having fun. They aren't Fibonacci, they aren't Apocolyptic Numbers (there is such a thing: derivatives of 666, unless you break the sequence apart, and that's cheating), or Odius Numbers... I have one theory left: Leviathan Number. My brain hurts and my ass hurts, but here's the formula: (10666)! where ! = factorial. Anyone?

Also, if you plug in the numbers here in the following sequence: Latitude: 4 8 15, tab over to Longitude and enter: 16 23 42, you can see the satellite image is over a chain of islands near Australia. But it CAN'T be that simple? I need to stand up and walk around now... Brain... Hurting....

Those numbers are Buffy's cell. I'm fairly certain.

Did anyone catch the combination to the briefcase? I have so much in my head regarding the numbers/curse thing.

Hurley is fine, but those around him are cursed. He owns the box company Locke worked for. he was on the TV when Jin was beating/not beating the factory guy, which Hurley has interest in (I think?), and got his money from the same bank that was held up, his GF died, had a pacemaker put in, which is what Jack's dad was - heart surgeon...

CONNECTIONS CONNECTIONS, and the crazy guy was playing CONNECT 4. NOT a coincidence. or WAS IT!!?? Also, the number combo is possibly checkers moves? I don't know backgammon - maybe related?

The numbers themselves aren't evil: it's using them to WIN or get GAIN that makes them evil/cursed. Which is why I think they may be coordinates: Danielle's ship heard the numbers, possibly checked into the coordinates, and ran aground.

Also, I have a distinct "Tommyknockers" feeling about that flippin' thing in the ground, and if Jimmy SMits shows up, I'm gone. PLEASE! Don't screw with me! My brain hurts!

This is all much too computational for me.

Julia, who blew out math circuits yesterday trying to explain Knot Theory and why no, it's not part of String Theory.
Mar. 3rd, 2005 03:11 pm (UTC)
Knot theory... 3 D objects? String Theory: related to radiation/black holes? It's been a looooong time.

My head hurts for the both of us. Maybe. My friend who runs a horse farm up in Wisconsin (she helps birth the foals) sends you positive thoughts and cyber shoulder pats.

*has not seen this show for it does not start airing here till Sunday*

*ADORES your icon anyway*

*has been corrupted by Joss with Dru/Spike and Simon/River*

*is a pervert*

*does not care*
Mar. 3rd, 2005 03:55 pm (UTC)
I'll just say that the character's name is Boone, he's VERY pretty, but quasi-interesting on the show. But he looks GOOD in eyeliner.

And the icon caption makes me laugh.

hah! See the first thing on my list of interests! ;D

p.s. I suck at math.
Mar. 3rd, 2005 03:54 pm (UTC)
BWAH!!! You rule, Marlo. I need Data. He'd figure it out right smart.

I kinda suck at math, too, I just have good books left over. (Well, I did well at math I just don't LOVE it.)

The only thing that I can think of is Hebrew letters corresponding to numbers. But that's because I just saw Pi.

That guy went crazy, too.

Mar. 3rd, 2005 03:49 pm (UTC)
No... no more possibilities... Haven't seen Pi, but it's about the Kabbalah in numerical form? Am I off base? I tried running the numbers through the Bible Code (hee!) and nothing. Read a theory about the numbers corresponding to chapters of Genesis, but that's a bit much. Cain/Abel? Don't see a correlation on the show.

Must... drink... Don't stack the beer bottles into patterns or sequences...

Those numbers will drive us crazy from now until the show gets cancelled. That's my theory. Gotta love David Fury. I sure do. We'll throw Hurly in there too. I can't believe it! Thanks for all tying up those loose ends.
Mar. 3rd, 2005 03:50 pm (UTC)
Gah. Those loose ends are flappin' in the breeze. I seriously am entertained by this show. And when is Sawyer gettin' naked and crying?
Mar. 3rd, 2005 03:36 pm (UTC)
I can't get the map thingo to work, but maybe that's where 'Lost' is filmed? The ads for the show keep bleating it's "based out of Australia".
Mar. 3rd, 2005 03:51 pm (UTC)
It takes place in an uncharted (maybe?) island 100 miles away from Australia, where the doomed flight originated from. It was headed to LAX, but went waaaaay off course. The digital satellite image shows a chain of islands near Micronesia/Java.

I believe the show is filmed in Hawaii. Tough life for those actors, huh? ;-)

Ha ha ha!!! When I go crazy, and Hillary Swank plays me (getting beat up - she does in every movie) and wins an OSCAR, you'll be sorry you called me names!!

*cries, draws ellipses in the dirt, rocks slowly*
Mar. 3rd, 2005 03:55 pm (UTC)
If I throw a box of matches on the floor can you tell me how many there are? I'm so taking you to the Casino when I come over.
Mar. 3rd, 2005 03:58 pm (UTC)
Definitely Iris. Shiny. I gotta date with Iris. 97X BAM! The future of rock and roll.
Mar. 3rd, 2005 05:44 pm (UTC)
You nerd!

Math bad. And Lost has... lost me. Well, it never really had me but I tried soooo hard to get into it. I meander in periodically while my Pop watches it; he's hooked.

*figure out math equation that enables Stoney to more effectively KICK YOUR ASS*
Mar. 3rd, 2005 06:16 pm (UTC)
I heard that if you take the Fibonaci sequence and divide by the number of triangles in the Great Pyramid, subtract the secret number of the Sphynx, square the whole, then raise it all to the power of the sacred bones of the Holy Grail, you get 4 8 15 16 23 42 divided by Pi.

Or maybe it's the number to David Fury's Swiss bank account. Now if we can just find that damn key...
Mar. 3rd, 2005 06:23 pm (UTC)

And, hello! If you read the whole post you'd see I tried all the Fibonacci sequences (arcs, rays, etc.) and they DON'T WORK. *cries*


DOn't make me come up there and Donkey Punch you.

It has a basis in the Apocalyptic number, if you play around:
4+2=6, 3 6s, but that is STRETCHING it a bit.

My question (if it is some obscure equation) is what is the purpose? A code for unlocking something? TO keeping something at bay? Coordinates? Chemical code? Alpha-numeric code?

Please, don't let the show get cancelled... You'll find me in a padded room drawing numbers and Connect 4 games on the walls... Hee!

NERD ALERT - hey, at least I'm not writing child abuse/incest fic, right?
I read that, too, but the problem I have with that is that you have to disregard half of the numbers in the sequence, and then what the hell is the point of the numbers? You know? (Meaning, you drop 4, 16, and 42. I can understand dropping 42 from the chain, since it was a bonus number, but the others?) So, while it was fun in college to get drunk and think about the significance of 23, I can't see how it plays any significance in this.

Of course, I'm tking this waaaaay too seriously, according to above.

If you take out 42 (and give it the Hitchhicker's Guide's meaning = meaning of it all) the other numbers are an extrapolation of a binary string of 1s. Which could mean a computer intelligence, or higher-order type thing.

Am I the only one who read the Vinge books: Summer Queen and Snow Queen? Where there was a super computer that affected an entire universe and it's creation? (It's where - I suspect - Lucas got the whole "mitichondrian" element of Star Wars.)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
