John S. Bell is Daniel Faraday on "Lost"

Note to Scientific American on Lost: John S. Bell is Daniel Faraday

I appreciated the article on entanglement, not least because of the picture of John S. Bell which came up in the magazine. He is clearly the prototype for Daniel Faraday, the renegade theoretical physicist who did his work in a broom closet at Oxford in the imaginative TV show Lost. The Lost island keeps shifting in time and place and some of the islanders do as well because Faraday left some of his notes with his mother. Now I understand it. Sort of.
