The Dharma Food Drop
Forgive me if this idea has been posted before; I am new to writing my own LOST theories.
What has always bugged me about Season 2 is the fact that the plane survivors found a batch of food dropped from the sky. This mystery has yet to be answered, although there is speculation that the food drop was intended so that the button-pusher down in the Swan would remain nourished and survive. However, this suggestion fails to explain the ominous “Quarantine” signÂ on the hatch door, which, in my opinion would discourage anyone from wandering on the island and finding the food.
The implications of the Incident may shed light on the food drop mystery. Perhaps when the Losties blew up the hydrogen bomb, they were transported back to the future in an alternate universe. Suppose, for the sake of simplicity, that they land in Los Angeles, safe and sound. However, let’s say they land in 2004, since that is when Oceanic 815Â crashed.
Assuming the Losties have recollection of the events thatÂ occurred on the island (in the alternate universe), they would be aware of their need for food and supplies. Since the island is not specifically in a location on earth, and is rather accessed by windows and time-travel, the Losties may have been the culprits dropping the food supplies over the island, so that they could survive!Â
Again, this theory may have already been posted. It is simply an idea I have been contemplating.
