Please confirm my theory (thanks!)
Dear Carlton, dear Damon,
last night - before falling asleep - I thought about what could be the central message of your so-called "tv show" LOST. There is this "magic box" idea, an Island which cannot be seen from the outside world, some mysterious co-incidences and numbers.
To make a long story short: you writers and producers were initiated by aliens into the mysteries of the Universe. These E.T.s thought, it was time to share their secrets to the human race. But it had to be done in a very careful way, telling the whole thing slowly, maybe bit by bit in a weekly rhythm.
So they chose you - who else in 21st century could tell the alien's message better to millions and millions of earthlings than people like you?
Live long and prosper!

P.S.: That would explain the long summer hiatuses. I am pretty sure you'll visit "them" to learn about the newest developments.
