okay so Jacob is a christ-like figure. he sacrifices himself so mankind can have free will, blah blah blah. what's interesting is that also by definition makes him an Osiris
-like figure, since osiris's resurrection after being killed by Set
is the direct antecedant of christ's resurrection.
if jacob comes back to life, it will be in a very osiris-like manner. maybe he left part of his sahu
with each of the losties. these parts of him can be reunited with his ka
and he will...
