Do you care about who built the statue?
Damon Lindelof says (2/3 into article):
“Our rule of thumb is if the characters who crashed on Oceanic 815 care about it, or if the answer is relevant to them, we’re going to answer it,” he said. “But if it’s a mystery that the fans care about that has no bearing on the lives of our character, we’re not going to answer it.
“This is a character-based show. We care more about emotions, motivations and ultimate destinies of the people. We don’t care about who built the statue.”
