WHAT I THINK IS GOING ON(…LONG)
OK, Alot happened in these 2 hours, and i just want do share what I think may be going on. First we got to see Chang in a real episode situation, and ya know what, the doctors kind of a stressed out jerk…well, maybe a little understandable. He is dealing with possibly the most powerful energy in the universe. He goes on to explain, much to my delight and many others sorrows that the islands energy has the ability to cause time travel. To everyone who said they wouldnt go too sci-fi…well im modest so i wont gloat. :] I published a theory on the old LT site in summer titled something along the lines of how to use a black hole. i will now try to cram 3-4pages worth of info into a paragraph for this theory so if you need more info, i will elaborate at a later time.
Basically the jist of my theory is explaining what a BH is, what happens upon entering and how one would exit if possible, and what the effects would be in this situation. WHAT: BH made of of many different parts, for this theory, using the “important” ones for quick explanation. The SINGULARITY: the hole part of the black hole, the center. THE EVENT HORIZON: The point of no return, imaginary line, think of sunset horizon, which once crossed one cannot leave a “black hole”. THE CAUCHY HORIZON: again imaginary line, same concept, but this would be more of the line that represents the very edge of the BH. it is before the EVENT HORIZON with an area in between. This area is called the ERGOSPHERE. The ERGOSPHERE: is between the event and cauchy horizons and in a hypothetical theory, would be if presented in the right situation, the area where one could exist inside of the range of the hole between where the cauchy horizon and the event lie.
I originally gathered this info after the finale last year, then it was further pressed by the Chang Comic Con vid when he used the word “wormhole”. This year in the premiere, Faraday says right after the island moves, something like “good, we were inside of the radius”. This radius he refers to I believe is the edge of our cauchy horizon. The Event horizon would be the area where the drilling was happening when a drill melted and a worker had Desmond/Constant like symdroms with the nosebleed and probably a little consience time travel if Im correct. And the singularity would be the actual hole/area where the wheel is located. Oh and Faraday being there cements peoples theories on him being the camera man for the Comic Con Vid. I know, they showed the camera man and it wasnt him, well, that wasnt the same video as ComicCon either.
There are 2 ways to leave the island, and two ways to leave our hypothetical Black Hole. One is through the singularity, (ben turning the wheel). By doing this, you are actually travelling through the singularity and could come out at anywhere if you didnt know…but didnt it seem like Ben knew not only where he was, but when he was…someones been timetraveling already. The other way is the bearing, or in BH terms, the poles of the black hole. (Sidenote= to understand better, grab a piece of paper and pen, in the center of paper, draw a dot, this is our singulrity, or where wheel is on island. Next, draw as perfect as you can a circle going about 3inches away from the dot all the way around, this is our event horizon, or area where they are drilling in the premiere. Now draw an oval around the circle, makin about 3 inches again from the left and right, but making sure the “oval” touches the top and bottom of the circle. this is our Cauchy horizon, area where the bearing gateway is to enter and leave the island, and the are where Faraday is talking about when he refers to the radius. The area in between the circle and the oval is the ergosphere, where the actual island and a little water is, where our Losties live basically.
Also Chang refered to the islands Electromagnetic properties, (which i believe are the healing factors on island) causes a casimir effect, which along with another, to my belief unexplained yet, property, (possibly the islands “volcano” weve heard of) allows the energys effect to not kill everything inside.
Back to your drawing. you should have a dot, with a perfect circle around it. With an oval, which touches the top and bottom of the circle and protrudes evenly to the left and right. Now to explain the poles I refer to, draw a line straight down the middle where the oval touches the circle on the top and bottom. It should almost resemble a rounded off eye. (even more creepy, with the pole drawn in, actually resembles Lockes eye :])
This is turning longer than I planned so Ill try to wrap it up. What Im saying is the islands center is like a Black Hole. It may not be a black hole, but it exhibits the same qualities, giving it the same capabilities. The incident, probably caused the reason the swan had to be erected, and why Des was there to push the button. A purge of its own after the incident to let out some of the buidup of energy to not destroy the island and earth.
Moealli, spoke of creation in his pandoras box theory…hes dead on. This energy is capable of moving faster then the speed of light ala timetravel. There has been comparison of Lost to the LHC at Cern, and for good reason. They are supposedly trying to recreate the Big Bang. This is the original source for all life in the universe. The Big Bangs Occurance produced enegy that travelled faster than the speed of light and produced energy that in the long run caused our life on earth…after a few billion years, but impressive non the less. HeHe, I actually almost posted a theory of how the Big Bang was actually a black hole opening up due to something that happened in Lost in a parallell dimension and we are the result, but this is too much already.
This energy, I believe is “natural”…think like a waterspring or an oilfield. Hopefully, I have given a strong presentation of my Black Hole theory and you can understand what I think is up with the island. On to what is happening with the people.
Everyone keeps saying to look at the way the timelines as being presented in almost an Einstein way, by using a flat piece of graph paper with different timelines and splits, well phooey to that. That makes understanding for a normal person with no concept of the situation almost unable to understand. Instead us simply a timeline graph with many things that occur in ones life…except take away the TIMES and DATES. In theory, time is nothing but a way for us to track what is happening, but on Lost, time is irrelavant for the most part. Think about Locke, Faraday, and Desmond. They all have shown us things that happened in their past, but not until the future. Father Time/ the Universe is no fool, he knows people have travelled to the past and course corrections have already been made by the universe and technically…this has already happened. Think how Ethan saw Locke in the past. This is Ethans present, he doesnt know Locke Yet, but Locke knows him. For Locke, his timeline has gone from paralysis pre island, to walking again, post island. When John sees Ethan, and Ethan sees John, this could be the reason why Alpert needs to find Lock. At some point in time we havent seen yet, John does something to save the island. Die, maybe, but they knew they needed John. Johns timeline has no actual sense of time as we know it because he has already been affected by the BH/Timetravel. I think we will see this season Alpert go back to the “past” to find Locke and “test” him. Because this is Lockes true path, he just cannot achieve it without help. Des already showed in the constant that he was off the path of true time as we know it, and I believe we will see Faraday go through the same type of thing. I come to this conclusion because of the scene when he watched the news of 815. When asked what was wrong when he burst into tears and replied “I dont know..boohoo”.
These people who travel like this, they must live life with a different perspective. When Daniel tell Des about his mother in Oxford (has to be Mrs.Hawking) Des wakes in the middle of the night and has a memory that comes to him like a dream because Des lives outside the metaphorical box. This is why Daniel says he is special, he has the ability to fix things, our DR Manhattan if you will of Lost. There is no cosmological order in Desmonds life (or Locke/Faraday in my opinion). There event timeline is simply an eventline because as they live, their past time fluctuates.
If anyone can actually comprehend what I said…I’ll be more impressed than you are, not because of technical mumbo jumbo, but my random thoughts that fly in while Im already writing something else. Sometimes I have to put it out of order oddly enough because there is soooooo much info forgotten about, it just has to be there to make sense, so thank you for your brain and patients. I hope you understand what Im getting at and enjoyed a very long confusing post. I felt necessary to put it out there before anymore happens. And if you do remember my old Black Hole theory on LT, you will know its a lot more organized and sensible, and I would have probably edited and reposted if I still had it.
BTW…I also think that the flashbacks wil play more of a role in terms of actually having a use to clue us to what is going on. Maybe along the lines of the Losties actually experiencing these as consience travel or something…I dont know. My brain is fried. Be brutal please, it is the only way Ill learn. :]
