11/13/06: Once I dreamed I was a butterfly, and now I no longer know whether I am Chuang Tzu, who dreamed I was a butterfly, or whether I am a butterfly dreaming that I am Chuang Tzu. (Courtesy of Chuang Tzu)

12/18/06: So tonight, whenever I felt myself getting down, I just meditated -- not as a way of blocking out my pain, but as a way of focusing on it...of letting myself know that the emotions I felt were important and that I'd rather acknowledge them instead of burying them until they explode.

12/25/06: No more lives torn apart / That wars would never start / And time would heal all hearts / And everyone would have a friend / And right would always win / And love would never end / This is my grown-up Christmas list. (Courtesy of David Foster and Linda Thompson)

1/1/07: The butterfly counts not years but moments and has time enough. (Courtesy of Rabindranath Tagore)

1/8/07: A good end cannot sanctify evil means; nor must we ever do evil, that good may come of it. (Courtesy of William Penn)

1/15/07: The time is always right to do what is right. (Courtesy of Martin Luther King, Jr.)

1/22/07: When someone does something well, applaud! You will make two people happy. (Courtesy of Samuel Goldwyn)

1/29/07: Imagine a world in which generations of human beings come to believe that certain films were made by G-d or that specific software was coded by Him. Imagine a future in which millions of our descendants murder each other over rival interpretations of Star Wars or Windows 98. Could anything -- anything -- be more ridiculous? And yet, this would be no more ridiculous than the world we are living in. (Sam Harris)

2/5/07: No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be. (Courtesy of Isaac Asimov)

2/12/07: There is wisdom in turning as often as possible from the familiar to the unfamiliar: it keeps the mind nimble, it kills prejudice, and it fosters humor. (Courtesy of George Santayana)

2/19/07: If a bird who could fly, only wished for flight as it sat on a limb, before long it would be unable to fly. (Courtesy of Mike Dooley ©

2/26/07: The things a man has to have are hope and confidence in himself against odds, and sometimes he needs somebody, his pal or his mother or his wife, to give him that confidence. He's got to have some inner standards worth fighting for or there won't be any way to bring him into conflict. And he must be ready to choose death before dishonor without making too much of a song and dance about it. That's all there is to it. (Courtesy of Clark Gable)

3/5/07: Always do right. This will gratify some people, and astonish the rest. (Courtesy of Mark Twain)

3/26/07: I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts. (Courtesy of John Locke)

4/2/07: Open minds are ever changing. (Courtesy of Dustin Lawrence)

4/9/07: True creativity is sister to the spirit, and both are born of simplicity. Neither can be learned, like some school subject, nor can they be feigned. They are not a product of the intellect, but flower only when the analytical mind is quieted and the intuitive thought process takes over. (Courtesy of Hideharu Onuma)

4/16/07: We are what we are. Black, white, brown, yellow. Point is don't be ashamed of who you are, man. You wanna call it stereotyping. Hey, this is me, Órale vato, this is who I am. Take me or leave me. You don't like me? Turn around and look the other way. It's that simple. (Courtesy of Eddie Guerrero)

4/23/07: Once you have started seeing the beauty of life, ugliness starts disappearing. If you start looking at life with joy, sadness starts disappearing. You cannot have heaven and hell together, you can have only one. It is your choice. (Courtesy of Osho)

4/30/07: Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy. That is not our business and, in fact, it is nobody's business. What we are asked to do is to love, and this love itself will render both ourselves and our neighbors worthy if anything can. (Courtesy of Thomas Merton)

5/7/07: So how do you love yourself? First of all and most importantly: Cease all criticism of yourself and others. Accept yourself as you are. Praise yourself as much as you can. Criticism breaks down the inner spirit, praise builds it up. Look into a mirror often and simply say: I LOVE YOU, I REALLY LOVE YOU. It may be difficult at first, but keep practicing and soon you will mean and feel what you say. Love yourself as much as you can and all of life will mirror this love back to you.

Theories about Amberjet11

  • She is Danielle Rousseau. Unbeknownst to anyone else, Rousseau has a functional (and modern) computer set up in her lair. It connects to the cable, which in turn connects to the Hydra (which, as Juliet pointed out, has access to the outside world).
  • She was once conned by Sawyer.
    • Yeah, right, like I have the money to catch his interest!
  • She will parachute onto the Island in season 4, then follow Sawyer around, serving him tropical drinks and fanning him with palm fronds.
    • Naomi stole the parachuting idea from her.
  • She is HER.
