LOST Theory...

Since I now have several of you LOST fans on my glorious f-list, I have a thought! Spoilers clearly included.

Alright, so teh flatmate and I have been clearing space off of our DVR by recording this season's LOST eps onto tape. In watching some fo the very first episodes again, when they meet Desmond for the first time and Jack mentions that they've been on the island for 44 days, Desmond reiterates the 44 days and looks like the number means something to him. I am thinkin' he might have "slept in" once... 44 days ago, and been late to pushing the button.

When Locke almost missed it, it sounded like it was gearing up... and we know from the whole key moving and Desmond talking about his fillings hurting that the station is powerfully magnetic. I wonder if Desmond didn't screw up and that's what pulled the plane apart.

Discuss.

Hmm interesting. But I don't think the station is the ultimate weapon of destruction. It is probably stored somewhere else. Maybe in the mountains. Who knows if there is a magnetic weapon at all?

I don't think it's a weapon, necessarily, but the egyptian symbols when translated mean "die." At least that's what popular theory holds. I've heard either die or Sayid... but it's definitely shady.

And Desmond seems to think the world will implode if the button isn't pushed.

Also black and red... never good. Neither are mechanized things that count down to an end result... i.e. bombs, or microwaves I suppose. Ha!

And we know it's magnetic, and that there are large amounts of concrete between the mega-magnet and the humans... but it's still strong enough to cause Desmond's fillings to hurt, and it pulls Jack's key toward the wall. Sayid said the last time had heard of that much cement being used to encase something... Chernobyl. Not good, yo.

That's what I said! I blurted it out and my flatmate turned to me with wide eyes, pointed at me and said... and I'm quoting:

"Ooooo!"

God I know... but I mean, what else could pull a plane apart? Just a large sudden magnetic pull on a large metal bird?

It makes sense!

dear cousin,

might i get my dirty little hands on a copy of said tape for the purpose of catching up over spring break?

dear cousin,

Of course you may. When is your spring break anyhow?

*ponders* O_O

That's... a really damn good theory!

Oooh, nice theory. I'd just taken his '44 days' reiteration as a sort of 'You've been stomping around up there for 44 days and i hadn't noticed?', but your idea is much more interesting.

Although i'm wondering what gearing up a giant magnet would do, really. Bring down a sattelite from space? And can you even gear up a magnet?

I'm pretty sure you can electrify a magnet and then it intensifies. That's how they splice atoms and things, they have a ginormous magnet... pump a crapload of electricity and it speeds up the atoms and they get all craaazy.

So yes, you can gear up a magnet. I don't know what else it could do, besides nuclear fusion. The whole, Chernobyl reference seems that much meaninful in lieu of this?

Aaah, okay. My knowledge of magnets pretty much amounts to 'opposite signs attract and similar signs repel', so, yes. Much more meaningful now.

And there's that theory again that the console/button pressing controls a satellite that orbits the earth every 108 minutes in search of (or containing, I can't recall) nuclear warheads.

For some reason, I never even thought about that. Satellites... crazy.
