Originally this sticky was set up when I backed up my LJ over here (April 2017.)

Hopefully more Tumblr users will find their way over here, after that site's massive fail.

From the DW staff:

With the new update to Tumblr's community guidelines announcing that they will no longer permit adult content on their site, we'd like to take a moment to reassure all y'all that we have your backs. With a very few exceptions (such as spam and the like), if it's legal under US law, it's okay to post here. We're 100% user-supported, with no advertisers and no venture capitalists to please, and that means we're here for you, not for shady conglomerates that buy up your data and use it in nefarious ways.

If you're here from Tumblr, feel free to say hello.

Series: Tales from the Bardo

stefanie_bean: (Default)
Sometimes LOST fans ask, "Why a church in 'The End?'" In my view, by the time viewers reached the series finale, ideally they had come to recognize sacred spaces and their role in the story. The Island was important - but more as a classroom where viewers honed their recognition of the sacred, rather than as a final sacred destination in and of itself.

On-Island sacred spaces include:
    the cabin
    the foot-statue rooms
    the Temple
    the Heart of the Island
    possibly the beach (because it's safe from Smokey)
    the golf course

Off-Island sacred spaces include:
    Christian's memorial service church
    Eloise's church
    The Reyes's home ("The Lie," where Hurley tells his story literally under the eye of Mary)
    The church where Kate gets married
    The funeral home
    St. Sebastian hospital
    Santa Rosa hospital
    the hospital where Locke recovers

Other off-Island places are the settings of powerful iconic moments, like the record store where Starla prophesizes about Hugo ("If you quit your job ... the whole damn thing will fall apart,") and the psychic's studio ("War is coming.")

Every one of these sacred spaces is like a passageway leading to another, and all of them together point to the church in "The End." All the sacred spaces we experience throughout the show build us up for the final one.

The church in "The End" is full of references to Divinity: not just Christian. Divinity is the terminus to which the entire story points. "Everything That Rises Must Converge" is the title of the book Jacob is reading because its writer, Flannery O'Connor, was giving a hat-tip to Fr. Teilhard de Chardin, who used the phrase to describe what he called "the omega point" - the convergence of humanity with the divine.

This "omega point" is what the Losties come to in the church of "The End."
