I’ll third that. My first thought actually was to check wikipedia, but to me that article is only slightly more comprehensible than line noise.
About all I can get out of it is that the Casmir Effect is an attractive force between two objects that isn’t related to the other basic forces and that it is somehow tied into vacuum energy. Is that about all I can get at the “Quantum Mechanics for Dummies” level or is there something else to it?
Also, Candle/Wickman/Haliwax says something about the Casmir effect being stronger than normal on the Island. What kind of effect would that have?
vivalostwages - The spoilage I’ve seen (I’m not bothering to spoiler-box since I clearly put “spoilers” in the thread title and OP) says that Locke is going to be separated from most of the Losties group for most of the season. He is going to be at “the temple” for a while with the remaining Others then he is going to go off on his own for a while.
And Masters of Science Fiction is just a four-episode anthology show, so he won’t be in more than the one episode there. Of more concern is the guy who plays Richard Alpert; he’s a regular on the new CBS (I think) series Cane and so may not be available for Lost.
silenus - Yeah, I know what you mean. TPTB made some comments about how the Island provides a chance for redemption and by returning Michael will get that chance. I think it’s going to be pretty hard to do that, but we’ll see.
Possibly related to that is an implication that has also been made by TPTB that says that Libby was involved with DHARMA and/or the people on the freighter, who they have said are going to be far worse than the Others ever were. So maybe they’re going to try to convince us that he did the right thing by shooting her. I dunno; we’ll see.
