Anyone want to hazard a guess as to why I'm reposting this particular photo now?

FUCK. That alone is like a spoiler...a very vague spoiler. I mean I already knew it was Tawaret from the bit they'd shown a few episodes ago, but still. And I have at least two or three hours till it's done downloading. DON'T TELL ME A DAMN THING.

Oh btw Mr. Magrathea, speaking of Rosicrucians, I've been wondering...what if any occultish types of things do you practice and what would you say your level of adeptness is at said things?

I'm glad there's a Lost thread on a board I read a lot, unless this is being posted for a non-Lost reason, in which case I'm confused.

Having a sudden, insuppressable urge to eat little white marbles?

I was going to guess either A) someone is pregnant, or B) you caught a crocodile having sex with a hippopotamus again.

Okay, I watched it.

So, Locke is Sammael? That's interesting. Hm.

Both of his girlfriends are sterilized, so he *better not* be pregnant! ;}

I still think the LOST statue looks more like Sobek, who as the repairer of evils and healer of ills (but not an active force for good) reminds me not only of the seeming properties of the island, but Jacob himself (who appeared to outright resurrect Locke after he fell).

I've seen arguments for both gods, but the more pictures I look at, the more I think it's Sobek- the snout on the statue seemed very thin, more like a crocodile than a hippo, to me.

(Though it's probably to be noted that apparently Sobek was at least at times the consort of Tawaret, and was sometimes seen on her back in certain statues. I have to admit, though, that I hadn't really looked into Egyptian deities at all until last night, after that great episode.)\

I like either interpretation for good reasons. Sobek, as I said, can relate to the healing properties of the island/Jacob but the destruction of a statue to Tawaret seems to go pretty well with all the fertility problems of the island. Hm...

Glad to see I'm not the only person whose first reaction was like "okay, who's pregnant?"
