The opening scene of the Lost premier: hoe-lee kay-rap
I had an odd dream last night where I either stumbled across or was invited to an island that was sort of a cross between Lost and Eureka (and probably a bit of the movie/book Timeline, too.) It was populated by a handful of very smart people who were specialists in their particular field. The island existed either in the future or just not within time as we know it. These specialists would then go back in time to various periods and “blend in with the natives” in order to better study them. They had cleverly disguised communications devices that would transform to look like an artifact from a given time period. These would be used to regularly report back findings and to learn of upcoming meetings or parties back at the island.
