LOST in Translation: Island Bound


Notice the missing corner piece.

Curiouser and curiouser…

The bottom tier of the tapestry, once you’ve added the missing piece, shows Egyptian ships coming to the Island and its towering Tawaret statue.

Reading from the bottom up, it paints a clear picture.

The translation reads:

In Greek, it says
“May heaven grant you in all things your heart’s desire”
which is a quote from Homer’s Odyssey

While the Heiroglyphs translate roughly as
“May the gods grant you happiness.”

Okay, Jacob… what are you really up to?

    But I am looking at the Lost statue .. How can it me Taweret – this is male – look at the physique and more importantly the short skirt . Female deities didn’t wear short tunics or boots like that ?

  2. Kay P Hankinson Says:

    It could be Sobek the crocodile god or Hapi innundation god of the Nile and who has pendulous breasts. Hapi is associated with Aquarius ( the age of water )

  3. Kay P Hankinson Says:

    Other Lost sites are saying it is Annubis – but no the ears aren’t right and from the side profile that is no jack al god
    four toes of Christian

    the Lost ballerina
    the loss of purity and innocence as typified by the ballerina
    LOL well that episode was made for me hahaha !

    • I agree. I fought the statue’s identity as being Tawaret too. I was firmly in the Sobek camp. Trouble is, Damon and Carlton (LOST’s showrunners) have stated categorically that it is Tawaret. Wish the art department would have done a little better in the research department so we wouldn’t have these kind of foul-ups and confusions.

    Well other than Ancient Egypt being the basis of the Dharma ( Intiative ) then I have no idea what they are up and not sure that I want to spend any more time with the series because as you say if they cannot get their facts straight then they should concentrate on Mickey Mouse !
    The theory ( and which I think that you share Bob ) is that there was some kind of Alien influence on the Dharma . I tend to think that we are going back so far into a LOST history and record of time that this theory may well be the foundation of the whole search and very much a lost reality in our own ‘time’ .Sometimes yes I do distinctly get the feeling that there is nothing here – all demolished way back in time and that we relive it though a virtual reality machine. But then I think that I watched the Matrix one time to many haha.. the search for the lost civilization – who had it all – and that wasn’t Kellogs bran either – continues.

  5. Kay P Hankinson Says:

    The ballerina has to be Shiva the lord of the dance – hehe the sexes are becoming confused but then there is no sex of being ultimately – these are polarities we aquire as to what we think we need to be. the desolation symbol and the anhilation of the world if not the universe is one of enlightened mind in the Dharma tradition.. therefore thoughts are much like a virtual reality machine which doesn’t function very well in most of us !! ?

  6. One is left to wonder if this blurring of the sexes is intentional.

  7. Kay P Hankinson Says:

    I would think so to point to the fact that being has no aspects including humaness or sexuality

  8. Kay P Hankinson Says:

    hehe maybe someone is going to be an hermaphrodite or totally genderless ! Maybe they are going to go naked soon …..

  9. Kay P Hankinson Says:

    Boots > Bootes

  10. Kay P Hankinson Says:

    I think we may have a play on the word Bootes who was know as BAU
    and the coming branch according to Philologos


    Bau of course word plays to Bough – branch
    O.E. bog “shoulder, arm,” extended O.E. to “twig, branch” (cf. limb), from P.Gmc. *bogaz (cf. O.N. bogr “shoulder,” O.H.G. buog), from PIE *bhagus “elbow, forearm” (cf. Skt. bahus “arm,” Armenian bazuk, Gk. pakhys “forearm”). The “limb of a tree” sense is peculiar to Eng.
    bow (n2.)
    “front of a ship,” 1342, from O.N. bogr or M.Du. boech “bow of a ship,” lit. “shoulder (of an animal),” the connecting notion being “the shoulders of the ship.” See bough.
    O.E. wiðig “willow, willow twig,” from P.Gmc. *withjon- “willow” (cf. O.N. viðir, Dan. vidje, O.H.G. wida, Ger. Weide “willow”), from PIE *wei-ti-, suffixed form of base *wei- “to bend, twist” (cf. Avestan vaeiti- “osier,” Gk. itea “willow,” L. vitis “vine,” Lith. vytis “willow twig,” Pol. witwa, Welsh gwden “willow,” Rus. vitvina “branch, bough”).

    SHIP the coming one … the boat of Mahayana perhaps bringing them to shore BOAT

    O.E. bat, from P.Gmc. *bait- (cf. O.N. beit), possibly from PIE base *bheid- “to split” (see fissure), with the sense of making a boat by hollowing out a tree trunk; or it may be an extension of the name for a part of a ship.

    note the hollowing out of the tree trunk – OSIRIS
    LOL must do some other things for a while :)

  11. Kay P Hankinson Says:

    Connect the coming one ( Bau also = the BA ) to the coming one
    and the 4 toes of Christ ian

  12. Kay P Hankinson Says:

    BAU and Golden Bough B + AU !
    The Coming One – Arcturus with two hounds…
    We have on the statue the hand holding the ANKH
    I obviously wrote the series didn’t I ?

  13. Kay P Hankinson Says:

    BOAZ the pillar of the temple that contains Osiris ?
    935 bow’ bo a primitive root; to go or come (in a wide variety of applications):–abide, apply, attain, X be, befall, + besiege, bring (forth, in, into, to pass), call, carry, X certainly, (cause, let, thing for) to come (against, in, out, upon, to pass), depart, X doubtless again, + eat, + employ, (cause to) enter (in, into, -tering, -trance, -try), be fallen, fetch, + follow, get, give, go (down, in, to war), grant, + have, X indeed, (in-)vade, lead, lift (up), mention, pull in, put, resort, run (down), send, set, X (well) stricken (in age), X surely, take (in), way.

    cannot really alight on one of those meanings

    Two enormous bronze pillars were set up by Solomon at the entrance to the Temple: one on the right hand, called Jachin, and one on the left hand, called Boaz (1 Kings 7:12.). What then do these pillars signify? The English J often stands for the Oriental Y. In fact the name Jachin is pronounced Yakhin, which is an intensified form of Yak or One, thus signifying first the principle of Unity as the Foundation of all things, and then the Mathematical element throughout the Universe, since all numbers are evolved from the One and always will resolve themselves back again into it. But the Mathematical element is also the element of Measurement, Proportion, and Relation. It is not the Living, Be-coming Deity, but only the recognition of the proportional adjustments that Life gives rise to. It is the Law.

  14. Kay P Hankinson Says:

    I presume that Jachin Yakhin is JACK

  15. Kay P Hankinson Says:

    We have a very backwards me hehe it is also the sacred bovine of Tibet, the Yak .
    Yak ( Tiben Dri ) forms the basis of Drikung lineage of Dzogchen and a special place that may lead into quite another reality.. Langdraney

  16. Kay P Hankinson Says:

    may be helpful
    GO in strength..

  17. Kay P Hankinson Says:

    I have to wonder if that unimportant glass ballerina is at the bottom of the mystery.. as Shiva and the dancer who Ultimatley destroys the
    universe ( was broken and shattered – positrons ? ) and who is one part of the Trimurti. Relatively on a smaller scale it is one who breaks things down and destroys old concepts ready for new ones to take their place
    The symbol for the destruction of everything that is worn out and in need of renewal. The destruction of personal self .. etc

  18. Kay P Hankinson Says:

    There is a missing corner piece in that hopi myth of yours over there… ?
    I think that the Kabba stone has something to do with this.. said to be black and yet the unseen part is as white as snow apparently
    ka’ aba seems more like the kabala than anything else ?

    connnecting the Ka’aba to Shiva.. the dancer – the dancer ( 21 tarot ) is in the center of the Qabala cube – which is an opened up latin cross

  19. Kay P Hankinson Says:

    I believe that the Hopi version of the prophecy is that a Kachina ( dancing doll ) in the plaza takes off the mask – harlequin squares – possibly black and white. it may be the story of the ballet Coppelia ( Kolopelli ? ) as the story is related to the sound that corn makes when shaken ( also found in the new testament when Christ rubs the corn .. possibly connected to corn / crop circles and shibboleth.. darn it it takes so much time to connect the pieces :)

  20. Kay P Hankinson Says:

    Oh yes :
    KA” ABA
    sh- ark

  21. Kay P Hankinson Says:

    there is talk of the stone of the Ka’ aba not being from heaven ( sky ) and meteorite but an agate.. that coming from the paradise.
    Hawaii = paradise
    agate a gate Agharti Agharta
    accounts for all those pieces of stones that some traditions have in their keeping.

    I am very sorry to announce the passing of Kay Hankinson at 4.30pm South African time on Monday 27th June 2011.

    She was my ex-wife but lived in a beautiful cottage on my property and was my sparring partner in all things for 33 years. I miss her terribly.

      Michael, I am stunned. Kay was such a wonderful soul and I enjoyed chatting with her so very much. My condolences, sir, to you and your family. Know that I miss her terribly already and my thoughts and prayers are with you all.
