Why press a button???
as the DI seemed quite technically advanced, couldnt they have set up a system that automatically dissapates the E-mag build-up every 108 minutes?
i know the button pressing was apparantly a scientific test but it still seems a bit overkill if you ask me. apart from the Swan station imploding, nothing else (that we are aware of) actually happened – the island didnt blow up etc. if the swan wasn’t really that important why didnt the DI just destroy the pocket of energy (like Desmond did) in the first place instead of going through the hastle of building a hatch.
was the hatch more important than we were led to believe?
