    It's a number that is very significant to Alias and Rambaldi. Have you seen any episodes yet?

    Show creator J.J. Abrams also created the show, Lost.

    Also here you have the number 47.

    I also don't recall an explanation of the significance of the number 47. It's Rimbaldi's number, but why? For that matter, why would it be on that door? Were there 46 other rooms or were they just obsessed to the point of absurdity?

    Where in Lost is 47?

    Do you suppose that JJ is building to something? That if you take the important numbers from each of his shows (past, present, and future), that at the end (of some yet to be defined time) they will fit together somehow, ala Rimbaldi?
