One of the greatest things about Lost is the ongoing mysteries about the island. And I'm sure I remember reading somewhere that everything that happens would be more or less explanable with real world solutions (i.e. they're not going to go far into the realm of fantasy/sci fi) but can anybody find that quote? I know I read it from one of the writers but I just can't find it anywhere? Thanks for any help

It's from an darkhorizon.com-interview with David Fury at scifi.com
While Lost is an amalgam of different genres, including SF, Fury explained that realism is the key in making it all work. "What we are trying to do is make sure everything has a very Scully explanation," Fury said, referring to the X-Files character. "This is not a show about the supernatural, despite the fact that we have a very huge creature that likes to eat people. Despite the surreal, bizarre aspects of the island, there will be an explanation for it. It may not come for a very long time, but certain information about the island will explain how things are possible. We'll try to root it in real science or real pseudo-science. There will be no mystical reason or an island of monsters. The island has been around for millennia, and many people have found themselves on it, and as far as we know, nobody has ever gotten off. There is also the possibility of others being on the island, they just haven't seen them yet. And we'll never know how big this island is. It could be enormous, but odd things will keep them from knowing the full length and breadth of it. It's an interesting little allegory. It will be very mysterious."
(I'm sure there's another with a different writer - but I can't find it at the moment =/)
Tehe... nevermind :)
I should read the error-messages *g*

Ummm, should there be spoiler tags on this given it is in Lost Talk? ;)

Don't think so since it's from an interview that's like... 3 (?) months old but there you go

I'm not sure since there are so many definitions of spoiler. But I think it would fall under unaired episode since it tries to clarify about the ongoing theme?
