Main Article Theories about
Daniel's journal
Main Discussion
 Theories may be removed if ... 
  1. Stated as questions or possibilities (avoid question marks, "Maybe", "I think", etc).
  2. More appropriate for another article.
  3. Illogical or previously disproven.
  4. Proven by canon source, and moved to main article.
  5. Speculative and lacking any evidence to support arguments.
  6. Responding to another theory (use discussion page instead).
  • This does not include responses that can stand alone as its own theory.
  • Usage of an indented bullet does not imply the statement is a response.

See the Lostpedia theory policy for more details.

  • Daniel received the journal from a future and more experienced version of himself.
  • Daniel and the rest of those that stayed on the island stopped skipping through time when Jack and crew returned to the island via flight 316. Daniel got himself recruited as a workman (as seen in the opening scene of Season 5). According to how Lost treats causality, sometime after he sees the Orchid station, Daniel would have hidden the journal right where he found it in the 'future' (past to him), then he would have to begin writing the journal anew so that it could be written in the first place.
  • Daniel's journal will eventually become known as the Black Rock Ledger
