Discordian Wiki

Lost is an American serial drama television series. It follows the lives of plane crash survivors on a mysterious tropical island, after a commercial passenger jet flying between Sydney, Australia and Los Angeles, United States crashes somewhere in the South Pacific. Each episode typically features a primary storyline on the island as well as a secondary storyline from another point in a character's life, though other time-related plot devices change this formula in later episodes. It was originally broadcast on the American ABC network from September 22, 2004 to May 23, 2010. It also aired on regional networks in many other countries.

Discordianism In Lost[]

Tree Mark[]

Tree mark

The Tree Mark

The symbol is similar to a mark found in Discordianism, and is a symbol of Eris goddess of strife, discord, contention and political rivalry. Marking it also a good symbol for someone who has committed a crime like Juliet's.

Illuminatus! Influence[]

The Illuminatus! Trilogy is a novel by Robert Anton Wilson and Robert Shea, confirmed by Damon Lindelof as an influence on LOST. It is a Discordian conspiracy theory novel, with several themes in common with the show; the number 23 is also heavily involved in the trilogy.

Similarities and Shared Themes[]
  1. One of the many intertwined plots of The Illuminatus! Trilogy is about a synthesized virus, Anthrax Leprosy Mu, which is one option in an Illuminati plan to kill off large amounts of humanity. This draws parallels to Mittelwerk's plot as revealed by the Sri Lanka Video.
  2. The "lost continents" of Atlantis and Mu are heavily involved in the trilogy, mysterious islands with an ancient mythology element.
  3. One of the heroes is named Joe Malik.
  4. In the season five episode "Jughead," Juliet refers to Latin as being for "the enlightened" This may be a synonym for the Illuminati.


Malick is the name or possibly pseudonym of a mysterious man who helped Rachel Blake escape from France and get to Sri Lanka. He was an IT security worker for Hanso Foundation, but betrayed them by helping Rachel escape during an assassination attempt on her life. He then pointed Rachel in the right direction, consequently leading her to record the Sri Lanka Video. Furthermore, his associate de Zylva aided Rachel in her escape to India.

Malick's current whereabouts and full name are unknown. Judging by his accent, Malick might be of British nationality. However, on the first DJ Dan live broadcast, his accent sounds more Australian (it's possible that it could be a different voice actor).

His first appearance was on June 23rd.

Occurance of 23[]

23 is the fifth of the Numbers. The Numbers 4 8 15 16 23 42 are one of Lost's most prominent recurring themes.

They were first featured prominently in the Season 1 episode "Numbers" as the winning lottery numbers that made Hurley a multi-millionaire. He first heard them from Leonard in the mental hospital, who originally heard them with Sam Toomey when they were in the Navy together in the Pacific. Because of the run of bad luck Hurley experienced after winning the lottery, he believes the numbers are cursed. After seeing the Numbers in Danielle's notes, he seeks her out; she explains that a transmission of them drew her people to the Island, and she believes him about the curse.
