Uh Oh’Is it safe?’.The Bomb that is!
I’d like to give ‘props’ to AES for prompting me to research the Faraday Cage, which led me to look at the Kerr Effect and Hydrogen bombs and arrive at some of the following conclusions.
Daniel Faraday tells Ellie, the bomb is leaking and how it should be handled for safekeeping. Presumably, ‘the others’ took the advice of Faraday. They filled the leak with lead, and buried Jughead in concrete, somewhere on ‘the island’, nice and safe. Or is it?
If this occurred on any other island, this might not present so many dire consequences. However, ‘our island’ is different’..very different!
The US tested at least 23 bombs on and around Bikini Island in the 1950’s. The effects of which have rendered Bikini Island, still uninhabitable, by a little thing called radiation, caused by one bomb, in one small corner of the island.
In Jughead, we don’t learn if the US deliberately sought out ‘our island’, or if by chance shipwrecked there, bomb in tow.
Hydrogen bombs combined with electromagnetism, travels at the speed of light when they are detonated, and create nuclear effects similar to what occurred in Chernobyl.
What we have learned about ‘our island’ is it is ripe with electromagnetism. So much so, it is responsible for many of the unusual occurrences we’ve witnessed. This bomb has the potential of becoming something of mass proportions, because the effects are greatly magnified.
What if a volcano were to erupt, activating the bomb? Concrete encasing wouldn’t save it. Think of the effects. ‘Our island’ is no ordinary island. Combine this, with ‘the island’ moving through time, if only slightly. Team Darlton have told us to think of ‘the island’ as a ‘wormhole’. What if this bomb has the power to turn that wormhole into a ‘black hole’? It would be ‘the mother’ of all bombs, capable of destroying the world.
We know Dharma was drilling on ‘the island’ as we saw Dr. Halliwax visiting the underground site. One of the DI workers was on the floor and bleeding from the nose. Are radiation leaks from Jughead causing the nosebleeds, in this particular case?
Could Dharma or somebody else via their experimentations on ‘the island’ set off a future chain of events that threatens mankind whether intentional or otherwise. Is this the reason why Jacob hates technology? Is this why the race is on to get the ’06’ back to ‘the island’? ‘To save the world’.
The possibilities are endless here. I’ve only touched on a few things. If we put our collective minds together and share our thoughts, we might just solve a mystery or two!
