LOST Finale Reaction & Where To Go From Here


Shortly after LOST concluded on May 23, 2010, Brian Jensen took his Flip video camera around the NYC LOST Meetup finale party at Down the Hatch to get some reactions. In the midst of all the hubbub, Marc Oromaner, author of "The Myth of Lost" gave his parting words about the show, the experience surrounding it, and how fans can use its wisdom now that it's over.

The Philosophy of LOST Presentation Highlights

What hidden wisdom can be uncovered from the TV show LOST? On May 21, 2010, two days before the series finale, “The Myth of Lost” author Marc Oromaner delved into this very question at 49 Grove in NYC. Other topics discussed included: Is LOST alive? What has it been teaching us? What secret messages are hidden within the show? Are LOST fans like candidates, chosen for some purpose? If so, what? How has the show depicted spiritual principles like "the law of attraction" and taking a "leap of faith"? Marc shared his insight on these topics and more, and then encouraged everyone else to offer their thoughts during three rounds of group discussion and debate. This video shows ten minutes of highlights from Marc’s presentations given throughout the four-hour event.

What LOST is Telling Us About The World Today...And Tomorrow Presentation Highlights



Presenting to a packed house at East West Books in NYC, Marc uncovered the messages of LOST and other mythological movies and TV shows! He began by updating novices with the basics, then spoke a bit about how LOST is "alive" and how it entered his life. He next spoke about the mythology of LOST, first on a superficial level, then a more spiritual one. This was followed by examples of mythological messages in several episodes. Next, the real-life meaning of LOST's time traveling was discussed. Giving a break to those who don't watch the show, Marc then discussed the meaning behind several other TV shows and movies including Heroes, The Matrix, and a ton of superpower films. He then concluded by reading a chapter from his book The Myth of Lost and giving some clues to the theory it offers!

Marc’s presentation about LOST is truly enlightening. Some have said that it helped them decide which direction to pursue in life. How can a TV show do that? Ten minutes of video highlights are posted above to help give you an idea! Even those who don’t follow the show have no trouble following the presentation. The basics of the show are explained, and other movies & TV shows are explored as well!

THE MYTH OF LOST Book Release Party Video!

Trish Balbert was kind enough to take video for the first half of the party. What follows is five minutes of highlights from her footage presented in BAR-MITZVAH-VISION!!!!

Posted by Marc Oromaner on Saturday, October 25, 2008



The weather was perfect. The view amazing. And fun was had by all at Water Taxi Beach to celebrate the release of my new book, THE MYTH OF LOST. What better place to hold a LOST party than at a beach that overlooks the NYC skyline? Talk about surreal! The party featured some Lost drinks including the very popular Smoke Monster Margarita, DHARMA Daiquiri, and LOST Island Iced tea. There were five LOST trivia winners including Tom, who was first to get all the answers correct and get a free LOST drink! All those who bought a book received a Hurley Goodie Bag and a signing from the very grateful author. 

Speaking of which, I just wanna say thanks to all 62 people who came out to help me celebrate the release of the book! For those who bought a copy, double thank you and I hope you enjoy it!
