I’ve just read Reality Steve’s Q&A discussion, and thought I would jump right in here too, but please forgive me if any of this has been mentioned… there is just too much to read and too little time!
Regarding his reference to the Wizard of Oz, RS states, this isn’t, but it is interesting that the character of the Scarecrow desperately wants “a brain”, and his goal was to appeal to the great Wizard in Oz to get him one…... The Wizard, of course, being the man standing “behind the curtain”, hiding his technical ability, and his power, to make people/things appear as they are not. Fleiss has been called many names, but a Wizard? Perhaps ABC?
Interesting too that in the Scarecrow’s song, If I Only Had A Brain, lyrics include,
I’d unravel any riddle
For any individ’le
In trouble or in pain
As for Reality Steve’s continued references to Lost, that show has very clear links between it and Donnie Darko, a huge cult classic psychological thriller ~ with their many parallel themes including fate and time.
Interesting also to note that the song playing over the opening sequence of Donnie Darko is “The Killing Moon”. However, on the “Director’s Cut” dvd, that song was replaced with “Never Tear Us Apart"(the song the director had always wanted, but unable to get the rights to in time for the movie’s release). Again, lyrics relating to fate and time.
With regards to Rebecca, in the bible she was the mother of twins, two boys: one a hunter and one a simple man….. Posters on Lost forums have made comparisons of them to the characters of Jack Shephard and John Locke.
Don’t know if any of this means anything, but I though I would throw it out there.
