How They Got on The Island: Time Travel, Wormholes, Vile Vortices, and the Planetary Energy Grid

After watching the Orchid Station training video at I did some LOST research on the Casimir Effect, mentioned in the video by "Dr. Hollowax."Halowax." I looked this information up on and found:

Casimir Effect and Wormholes

The quantum mechanics of the Casimir effect can be used to produce a locally mass-negative region of space-time, and suggested that the negative effect could be used to stabilize a wormhole to allow "Faster Than Light Travel." "Exotic matter" with negative energy density is required to stabilize a wormhole.

An "apparent" or "effective" "Faster Than Light" is the hypothesis that unusually distorted regions of spacetime might permit matter to reach distant locations faster than light taking the "normal" route. An example of an apparent "Faster Than Light" is the traversable wormhole. A traversable wormholes would allow travel from one part of the universe to another part of that same universe very quickly or would allow travel from one universe (dimension) to another.

Spacetime is usually interpreted with space being three-dimensional and time playing the role of the fourth dimension.

Wormholes and Time Travel

A wormhole could allow time travel. This could be accomplished by accelerating one end of the wormhole to a high velocity relative to the other, and then sometime later bringing it back. "Relativistic time dilation" would result in the accelerated wormhole mouth aging less than the stationary one, as seen by an external observer.

However, time connects differently through the wormhole than outside it, so that synchronized clocks at each mouth will remain synchronized to someone traveling through the wormhole itself. No matter how the mouths move around. This means that anything which entered the accelerated wormhole mouth would exit the stationary one at a point in time prior to its entry.

For example, clocks at both mouths both showed the date as 2000 before one mouth was accelerated. The accelerated mouth was brought back to the same region as the stationary mouth with the accelerated mouth's clock reading 2005 while the stationary mouth's clock read 2010. Then a traveler who entered the accelerated mouth at this moment would exit the stationary mouth when its clock also read 2005, in the same region but now five years in the past.

(Einstein has his theory on this, too. It's worth a look.)

Energy Grid Theory and Vile Vortices

Planetary "energy grid theory" operates through geometrical patterns that follow a specific symmetry linked to sacred geometry. The grids meet at various intersecting points forming a grid or matrix. This is equivalent to the acupressure points on our bodies. These grid points can be found at some of the strongest power ( energy) places on the planet. These intersecting grid points are called "vile vortices," or area's of the Earth where mysterious disappearances, mechanical failures and time-space distortions were seen to occur.

These lines and points, the "matrix of cosmic energy," matches most of the earth's seismic fracture zones and ocean ridge lines. As well as outlined worldwide atmospheric highs and lows, paths of migratory animals, gravitational anomalies, and even the sites of ancient cities.

(The Bermuda Triangle is one of the "vile vortices," where the grid line's intersect… and there is one near Fiji. Another one of these places is in Australia where the character, Rose,Rose, was taken by her husband, Bernard,Bernard, to heal her cancer.)

Go here for the interactive Energy Grid Map:


On September 22, 2004 Desmond left the Swan Station unmanned. He failed to enter the number sequence in time. The magnetic energy being contained by the station began building.

Oceanic Flight 815 was 1000 miles off course from it's path from Sydney, Australia to Los Angeles, California. The plane is suspected to be somewhere near Fiji.

The Fijian "vile vortices" or "planetary energy grid point" was affected by the building magnetic energy from the Swan Station. The energy stabilized the vortices creating a wormhole. Flight 815 violently passed through the wormhole and was expelled on to The Island,Island, in a parallel dimension.

This parallel dimension has it's own set of rules. The Hanso Foundation sent a group of scientists, the Dharma Initiative,Initiative, to study these rules.

This Island is only accessible by those who "know" it's secrets... or by those who were in the "right" place at the "right" time. (Near Fiji on 9-22-04) The Hanso Foundation knows how to control the wormhole with the Swan Station. It knows how to bring people and animals to and from the Island.Island. (Courtesy of the government?)

Other thoughts
and questions:
The Dharma Initiative lost control of The Island. Ben took control. What happened to the Hanso Foundations involvement? Has Ben "locked" them out?

When the survivors leave the island,island, do they come home with the same amount time having passed in the "real world," than as on The Island?

**I will continue to update my theory.

The Orchid Station video also displays some other clues
: The man with the beard (also found in the Swan Orientation Video)Video) at 38-39 seconds. The City Hall of Narvik, Norway at 49 seconds (also found in the Swan Orientation Video). And "God loves you as he did Jacob"Jacob" at 1 minute 9 seconds.
