the grandfather paradox?
I’m a big believer of whatever happened, happened so lets go by that theory for a minute.
Lets assume detonating the Jughead is the cause of the incident..
That means everything we’ve seen in the future is going to happen again – the losties will crash, they will travel back to the 70s, they will cause the incident, shoot back to normal time (2004 as they assumed) and it will happen all over again – this is also supporting the timeloop theory.
(even if they dont shoot through time, in 30 years they will be back on 815)
But lets say the detonation prevents the incident.. which i know many people believe..
There is no incident, they Swan site is used for research on electomagnetism as planned, Desmond doesnt come to the island and forget to press the button, the 815 crash doesnt happen, the losties dont travel back to 74/77, they dont prevent the incident.
If they prevent the incident, they cant go back in time to prevent it..
i know this seems a lot of head work but think about it, its the grandfather paradox – if you go back in time and kill your grandfather, you will never be born therefore not able to go back in time to kill your grandfather.
So back to the point – the incident has to happen for the losties to go back and try to prevent it.. but technically, they never can prevent it.
What are your thoughts?
