Thanks Hoganbcmj. A lot of peole have been talking about the similarity of Abigail Spencer and Mrs Hawking. I didn't catch it originally, but think it would be a nice way to throw us off the trail. It's the old misdirection trick. We're so focused on the girl in the bed, we never consider the woman who answer the door as a possible important character. Very David Copperfield of them.

Time travel has been explained and illustrated a number of different ways throughout Sci-fi, but I'm leaning to believe time-traveling future Locke can see pre-Oceanic-6-leaves-the-island Locke, but the reverse is not true. (Because in pre-time travel Locke's mind, time traveling Locke doesn't even exist yet)

This may explain the faint whispers, or especially even backwards whispers. Future Locke (and future Sawyer, and futiure Juliet) are there witnessing oncoming danger, but they can''t be seen, and the best they can do is register a quick, faint whisper of warning. But in all probability they are probably screaming like crazy, and their emotion somehow breaks through. (Hey, I'm not an expert, but I did read a lot of comic books as a kid) 

Naturally it's all guesswork at this point, and I'd love to hear other theories. I just hope mine is the correct one, so I can brag about it later. (I need to get some other hobbies.)

The only problem with that theory is that we know from the last few episodes that people in the past CAN see time travelling people from the future:  Richard sees Locke, Desmond sees Daniel.  And if it was only that your past self couldn't see your future self, then wouldn't everyone else from the past see that future person?  So while I love that whispers-from-the-past theory, it doesn't seem to fit with what we have seen already in terms of the time travelling that the island dwellers have been doing so far this season.

I guess that should really read "whispers-from-the-FUTURE theory."

Ahhhh, excellent point Hogan. I guess it's always best to bounce LOST ideas off other people before thinking I'm going to be bragging about my "brilliance."  Damn, I was loving the whispers-from-the-future thinking too.

What?  No "Little Prince" recap?  :)
