The Event Window & Focault Pendulum
Ms. Hawking tells Ben he has 70 hours to get all of ‘the 06’ back to ‘the island’. Ben asks her the question, what if he can’t, or requires more time, to which Hawking replies, then ‘God help us all’. This indicates to me, that ‘time’ is of the essence, and it may be the only ‘window’ they have to accomplish this.
Ms. Hawking was using Focault Pendulum to determine a specific timeline when ‘the 06’ could return to ‘the island’. I believe the importance of ‘when’ they return, effects the ‘how’ they will return as well.
The map indicates more than one location, and includes the Atlantic Ocean on the East Coast of Florida, and in the North and South Pacific Ocean. The ’06’ may need to return from different locations. This could answer why they have to return ‘together’.
Perhaps it’s not from the same place that matters, but more importantly, they need to arrive on ‘the island’ together, at a precise moment in ‘time’. This makes more sense to me, if they are attempting to prevent the remaining ‘losties’ from danger, and/or certain death. They may also have to return under ‘secrecy’, and/or in cognito. No doubt, Ben has this covered!
Perhaps this is how Juliette and others travelled to ‘the island’. Through the use of the pendulum, predicting when and from where. I am still uncertain, of the travelling method that is employed, but I’m certain one of the requirements is a nice glass of orange juice, with a bit of a kick to it!
I’m not into physics, but have an appreciation for it, and an interest. If somebody would care to elaborate on the Focault pendulum, feel free.
