Lost is a dramatization of battle between the Egyptian god (Ra/Sobek) and his fight with the netherworld god ( Apep/Annubis) in todays world with many players from the Egyptian legends being part of the charachters of the show. Ra/Sobek is Jacob (both having healing qulities and more indirect roles to play...) and Apep/Anubis is the smoke moster and the roles of them can be campared that of the Egyptian gods where Apep is described as a monster that is continually figting Ra/Sobek in the Egyption Duat "netherworld". THe charecterstics of the Apep/Anubis is to judge the dead based on theie actions in life which can be seen in some of the episodes of the smoke monster showcasing peoples life before killing them. Other characters in the show like Robert could be Osiris who the Egyptions endown as a permanently youthful God. The island itself can be considered the meeting place of the known world and the netherworld of the Egyptian description thus allowing for bending of most of the normal rules that apply. The Dharma initiative is a symbolism of the Dharmic practices (correct practices) the allow for judgments between right and wrong. 5  out of 6 found this valuable. Do you?

I think you hit the nail on the head, and this was posted before the series had ended. Nice work :) Do you find this valuable?
