Bermuda Triangle ?
This is my first theory so I will try my best.
Ok as we all know the island has an electromagnetism power source of some kind, and that when this power was released (Locke not pressing the button) the sky turned purple and that the metal around it changed shape very fast.
The Hutchinson Effect has been linked to the Bermuda triangle. Many survivors of the triangle say that they saw a cloud of ‘fog’ surrounding them and that all their machinery went down, they lost all communication with the outside world for hours, they also state that they saw a bright light. John Hutchinson has done many experiments using electromagnetic forces he has had many outcomes.
These include levitation of objects they hovered and moved about, swirl around and ascend, or shoot off at fantastic speeds. Metal warped and bent and even, lights appeared in the air, along with numerous other corona manifestations; and water spontaneously swirled in containers. Also in other test things appeared surrounded by ‘fog’.
Now to get to my ‘theory’ now I’m not saying that the island is the Bermuda triangle not at all but what if it is something like that. John found that bright lights appeared in the atmosphere and the metal seems to bend with extreme ease. Now when the energy was released the sky changed colour the light of the magnet no doubt and the effects of the metal give me evidence to suggest that the island has the same effect as the triangle. Once you’re in the ‘fog or triangle (island?)’ you cant contact the outside world and your machinery is also effected. This would explain why the ‘others’ use old boats with less technology onboard because they know that they would get lost or that it would fail. Also why 8:15 lost all contact and that they were miles of course, they were of course because the machinery was effected and damaged by the electromagnet. This also explains Desmonds boat being caught in bad weather and washing up on the island (these ‘fogs’ cause storms)
This also explains the green light coming form the wheel, corona manifestations have a green light, we see the light here because it is of high concentration and when turned allows them to jump because they effectively go into the ‘fog’ and come out at another concentration point.
No one knows what happens in the Bermuda triangle at when they come out or where. But many scientists have linked it to ‘wormholes’. They have also so found many other magnetic anomalies especially in the right side of the continents, the route 815 would have been on the right side of the USA and Brazil, this leads me to think that they may have gone through a ‘fog’ and arrived on the island.
What do you think? Is the island and triangle or am I totally of the mark here. It just something that has been nagging at me for ages so I thought I’d put it out there.
I really hope this makes sense, I tried my best to get all the facts in and link them as best I could.
