Season 6 of “Lost” has just begun, and fans everywhere are trying to get a handle on this year’s new story-telling device, referred to the producers as the “Flash Sideways.” How will the Flash Sideways world intersect with the timeline we’ve come to know? Well, I think I’ve made a discovery that holds the key to this season…

Like a lot of fans, I enjoy reading the recaps posted by such “Lost” experts as Jeff “Doc” Jensen at, Jo Garfein at Jopionated and fishbiscuit of fishbiscuitland and In his latest column,  Doc Jensen mentioned a supporting character from Season One, a psychic named Richard Malkin, who lived in Australia. That reminded me that many fans have always thought that Australia was the key to “Lost.” And it well may be, because look what I found when I looked up the definition of “Dreamtime,” an important component of Australian Aboriginal mythology, on Wikipedia:

“Aboriginals believe in two forms of time; two parallel streams of activity. One is the daily objective activity, the other is an infinite spiritual cycle called the ‘dreamtime’, more real than reality itself. Whatever happens in the dreamtime establishes the values, symbols, and laws of Aboriginal society. It was believed that some people of unusual spiritual powers had contact with the dreamtime.”‘

If that doesn’t describe the relationship of the two worlds, I don’t know what does…

    Wow! You may be onto something… Now just explain the Egyptian and Mayan references and – the Others. And why the “smoke monster can’t penetrate ash and a sonic gate (remember the sonic gate?)

    We Shall Watch – and We Shall See.

    Thanks for the post – keep the theories coming!!

    Very interesting, but with so many parallels and allusions to so many cultures and religions, I just don’t think it’ll be that simple and clear cut. I’m beginning to wonder if they can possbly deliver an ending that will really tie up all the loose ends or if it’ll just be a big let down.
