Doomsday isn’t what we assume it to be

Written 6th May

*sorry if this has been stated before, the submarine sinking and MIB knowing that all the candidates were still alive has given me reason to believe this theory to be true. I apologize if this has been stated before*

Is doomsday really Flocke leaving the island and wreaking havoc on the world?

Before This can be answered, you have to assume a few facts are true. The numbers are the Vanzetti Equation, which predict doomsday. Each candidate represents one number. Flock wants nothing more than to go home. What if home isn’t actually him going anywhere, but instead is him dying. He can only die if all of the variables which could potentially change are unable to change. The candidates dying would solidify that numeral in the equation and in turn create no possible way to avoid doomsday. The fact that some candidates are still alive subsequently is keeping MIB alive. Therefore, I believe he knows that they are alive because he hasn’t died.

Don’t think of the show pointing to an instance where MIB actually hits mainland USA persay, but instead, jacob was constantly trying to change the variables of the equation to prolong when doomsday will occur, while MIB wants to kill all the candidates and Die so that he can ensure mankind will destroy themselves on a certain predetermined date.

  1. He knows that some candidates are alive because he can’t leave yet. Its that simple.

    And as far as the Valenzetti equation goes, I think the numbers that Dharma came up with are from someone stumbling onto the cave with all the names. How else could they have possibly come up with the exact numbers of the people that were left?

  2. sorry greatforsaken, but as for the numbers, many of the names on the cave would not have been crossed out at the time Dharma first used the numbers(1977).
    I think arc420316 is correct, MIB knows they are not all dead because he can’t leave yet.

  3. I totally agree. Flocke stood on that dock thinking “Why am I still here?”. If all the candidates are dead, he can leave. It’s not like Flocke was going to have them killed then get on the plane to fly off the island and see if it works. Theoretically, once all the candidates are dead, the smoke would dissipate into thin air and MIB would be set free from the prison of the island.

  4. I agree, he knew they were alive because he didn’t go anywhere (to the Alt/real world). I compared to this to Quantum Leap (the TV show), he could only jump when his mission was complete and knew he didn’t complete his mission because he was still there).

    This made me think: Are the Losties dying in order of the numbers, in sequence? What is the sequence again and what is everyone’s number?

  5. Where did you get this from ? because i posted a theory the other day asking how locke new they wernt all dead and someone replied with that exact theory word for word
