Locke's Meaning

i am intrigued with locke's character. he feels useless and meaningless...
his life has amounted to nothing and he has little to offer.

even after eko explains how important his life is...he's stuck in this self pity pond.

he saved the life of his undeserving father.
he's touched other people's lives.
he's defended claire.
he helped charlie overcome his addiction to heroin.
he helped eko realize his "purpose".
he even saved desmond's life.

yet he keeps focusing on "his destiny"...and how he hasn't fullfilled it.

and he fails to see that life and purpose and meaning and hope are all tied up in the every-day-ness of life.

forest for the trees indeed.

somebody on that writing staff must be a believer.

I was talking with my friend last night about how they have Locke (faith) and Jack (science) going head to head.
