thought about it and yep, it could be the case.Ever onward said:What do you think?
cognitive dissonance between Ben and Jacob could explain a lot as the two fight over determine what is reality.
also, with multiple personality disorders there is always what is called the inner self helper - one personality that helps all the others.
this could be why jacob says 'help me' to Locke. jacob isn't strong enough to destroy ben. he needs another one of the personalities to do it. while jack is the leader, its locke who is the inner self helper and has the dominance / characterstic to help him.
now, wouldn't it be a trip if desmond turning the key, and the resulting noise, bright light, shaking of the island and the purple sky were actually the result of electroshock therapy.
gotta admit, that makes sense. if they were to zap Jacob in real life (scramble his brains with electricity) that would shake the island and cause wierd things to happen like the sky turning purple etc.
hehe - i so want to toss this MP theory out, but just can't find a definitive angle that lets me.
