The Smoke Monster Theory...

Let's take a look at the smoke monster. I believe as relayed on the blast door map in reference to 'Cerberus Vents', that the Smoke monster is in fact some form of the same as the entity 'Cerberus'. Cerberus 'is a multi-headed dog which guards the gates of Hades'. Often the dog is depicted having three heads. We saw the smoke monster divide into three separate sections when it hit the sonic fence in left behind.

I therefore believe that the smoke monster is then the overall island entity which has the three heads of 'Jacob', 'The Nemesis', and some yet unnamed personae that acts separately from Jacob or his nemesis. This would explain a great deal of the 'ambiguity' of the monster's actions. We've seen the smoke monster as a judge, as a violent destroyer, and as a help to our LOSTIES. Jacob - the help. The nemesis - the violent destroyer. Yet unidentified - the judge.

The entity is sometimes controlled by one of the 'heads' at a time. This allows the entities to control the actions of the monster, despite the wishes of the other two heads. I also believe the power of manifestation comes from the overall entity shares among the three. Jacob can manifest memories of the living (not the manifestations themselves but from the source memory) - ie Hurley's Dave, Ben's mother, Kate's Horse etc. Jacob's nemesis can manifest the dead - ie Christian, Ana Lucia, Yemi, etc.

The third entity may be able to do both or none, That much is unclear. The third entity is however 'the judge' and based on the judgement either Jacob or his nemesis carry out the judgement.

During Locke's judgment he was deemed to be allowed to live and Jacob carried out the judgement helping Locke with the boar. During Eko's judgement, as Eko was not penitent, the nemesis destroyed Eko. During Ben's judgement, he was deemed guilty but nemesis didn't carry out the sentence, and instead carried through with his plan to kill Jacob, telling Ben he must follow John Locke (himself manifesting Locke).
