"Hawking's Computer Calculations"

Here is a screenshot from DarkUFO of the image on Mrs.H's computer screen compared to the most popular graphic of the theoretical global Vile Vortices locations on the web. Her screen shows determined locations that we don't know much about yet, but that we speculate will be either places where the island can "move" to, or locations where windows could "open up" to allow travel back to the island. There are a lot more points on her graphic than in the true vortices map, so as with everything else we'll just have to wait on more info to narrow it down. I've marked where the close matches are. I guess the one big question is, which of these points is the singular event window mentioned on the screen that is their final chance to make it back and to put the universe back in order?

UPDATE: Below the vortices map is a compiled estimate of where Guam fits into the vortex idea. Although the difference in the maps makes it difficult to pinpoint exactly (Mrs.H's computer map has an odd curvature distortion, and the vortex map is a flattened globe), on the computer Guam is either in or very near the Australian Triangle and Flight 316 would just have to fly a bit off course to hit the coordinates of the vortex there; but on the Vortex map, Guam seems to fall near Sayidsgirl's Asian Devil's Triangle and the plane would veer in that direction. By the way, the official Guam website is titled "Official Portal for the Island of Guam". :-D http://www.guam.gov/

*Thanks to Brianne at TLC for helping with a correction! :-)

Capcom, thanks for this! I think you are definitely on to something. I can't imagine any other explanation...
well done!
xxoo

That's pretty cool capcom. You know I'd never heard of vile vortexes until you mentioned it at the TLC blog. But I had heard of the Devil's Triangle. I like that many of the event windows are near the vile vortexes and near the Devil's Triangle also. I'd love it if they actually went through the Devil's Triangle to get back to the island. If they go back.

Thanks ladies!

I think that I first saw the Vortices mentioned on one of the science-y blogs that I have listed on the main page, probably Bigmouth's EyeMSick blog. I had no idea that there were so many of these types of areas before that. It fits in pretty well now, and I was really happy to see that your favorite one was on the screen Sayidsgirl! I tried to also match some of the Antipodal points (see an earlier blog) with Mrs.H's locations last night because TPTB have mentioned that, but gave up and went to bed. I still am going to try to see if Guam sits on any of these points. But they may just be flying in that general direction and then veering off towards the nearest Triangle.

:-D

Interesting connections here. Mrs. Hawkings' computer screen has those "asterisks" there for a reason and the fact that they coincide with the V.V. is not mere coincidence! The Guam aspect with the Ajira ARG still makes me think that that is near the portal that will get them back to the island in the right time line.

Capcom said...

Right! I thought that we might get a little sneak peak at Ajira Wednesday, but I guess we;ll have to wait a bit longer.

Nice theory! I borrowed your screencaps to show to a co-worker whose more into the scientific side of Lost than I am. . .hope you don't mind.

Capcom said...

Tx!

Hey, I nicked these pix from somwhere else too since I don't have the tech to do that on my own, so fair is fair! :-D

I might have another science post for this ep because emailing with Wayne gave me an idea. But I have to finally catch up with Fringe first.

There was a book that mentioned the Vile Vortices that came out in the 70s, during the Bermuda Triangle craze, I'm thinking the book was LIMBO OF THE LOST. That was the first of the Devil's Triangle. As for the plane veering away from Guam, 815 did veer away from its flight path, as well.

Capcom said...

I'll have to look that book up. :-)
