Re: Lost Fifth Season Finale: "The Incident"
I believe he wanted Ben to kill him too, but that doesn't make sense with the other theory that people seem to be putting out, which is that Jacob has gone through all this trouble of getting everyone to the island and changing the timeline so that he isn't killed. Why go through all of that if you can just stop Ben from killing you in the first place?
Time present and time past
are both perhaps present in time future.
And time future contained in time past.
