New Book 'LOST Thought' Hits Shelves Today

Lost ThoughtIt's been a little over a year and a half since LOST went off the air, but the series has remained polarizing amongst fans (and former fans). The discussion regarding the series is still very much alive. That's the reason for the new essay anthology book LOST Thought, which hit shelves on February 29. 

Edited by (and featuring contributions from) Pearson Moore (LOST Humanity, LOST Identity), the book is a compilation of essays about the show, featuring entries from some of the biggest names from the LOST community. Jo Garfein (JOpinionated), Erika Olsen (Long Live Locke), Ryan Ozawa (The Transmission), Andy Page (DarkUFO), Sarah Clarke Stuart (Literary LOST), and Nikki Stafford (Finding LOST) are all figures of the LOST community contributing to the book. Various scholars have also contributed, including Jeffrey D. Frame; Cynthia Burkhead, Ph.D.; Paul Wright, Ph.D.; Delano R. Freeburg, Ph.D.; Amy Bauer, Ph.D.; Michelle Lang, Ph.D.; Antonio Saverelli, Ph.D.; Kevin McGinnis; Jamie Smith; Julia Guernsney-Pitchford, Ph.D.; Jennifer Galicinski; Godze Kilic; C. David Miles; and Erin Carlyle.

Lostpedia administrator, TVOvermind contributing editor, and TVRage contributing news editor Sam McPherson also contributed a rather thought-provoking piece about Egyptian themes in LOST, but he doesn't like to brag. 

Here's how Moore describes the compilation: "LOST Thought is a lively collaboration between 22 leading experts in the online LOST world and the academic community. Every contributor brings unrestrained passion to these 25 wide-ranging and vital discussions of the personal, cultural, social, and literary implications of the most fascinating, multi-faceted creation ever presented on television. LOST is approached as living, breathing text whose mythology, themes, and theses challenge our culture and our society at every level." You can check out the full press release over at DarkUFO

You can order Lost Thought on Amazon.

Now... about the explanation... I believe that the writers really were lost during the history. That's the reason why LOST does not have sense. But we that waste our times watching it, reading about it, talking about it, have to find one explanation for something that doesn't have one. Something meaningless. Like many religious do. We can be defending a great lie without knowing it and can be against the true. In this case of lost I believe that the turth is that the Lost have no sense.

I watched Lost once and now I am watching again with my girlfriend. I think it will have nonsense after all. Off course we have some questions that were answered. But the most importants just could not because who were lost were the writers. At least they earned a lot of money. And we all had our time LOST. Lots of lost things. But... if we think about the mistery, and that the good thing in a mystery is to try to solve it... well it earned something. All the joy of the path we earned. We possibly learned something new to make our theory.

well we at LOST. com were left out, and as we all spent so much time on the show, feel we should have been consulted
