Why the Island’s Special

This is my first theory, and I know this is highly unlikely, but several of the Island’s mysterious properties seem to be consistent with what you may find near a magnetospheric eternally collapsing object (MECO). A MECO could greatly warp time and space, creating some of the Island’s odd properties. In addition, a MECO generates a huge electromagnetic field, which as we know the Island has, and the Swan was made to study it. So maybe, just maybe, the Island could be sitting on top of a MECO. The MECO could also exhibit peculiar behavior such as moving the Island through space, and mutating something via its EM field to create a healing virus. IDK, just an idea from a physics nerd.

Hey, I'm Mixen Dixon. I'm a somewhat nerdy teenager, being very enthusiastic about theoretical physics and computers (check me out on LOST is one of my favorite shows. I love to figure out scientific explanations of things that occur in LOST, which is why Daniel Faraday was my fav. character until he died. Too bad.

  1. Dan also had the Kerr Metric equation on his board whilst experimenting with his rat, Eloise. Aren’t these conflicting theories … i.e. black hole and MECO?

  2. I like this theory, it’s definitely plausible at least as something Dharma might believe in if not the actual reason for the island. I definitely like this better than the Egyptian sun god theory.
