My first thought originally was that he was a clone. But if that were the case then there wouldn't have been a need to create a memory of him recovering on a beach (which we all know didn't happen). They could have cloned him and he would never have been the wiser.
Also..he keeps saying it was a "magical place" which I feel plays real significance to what really happened to him. I'm still saying real magic came into play.
