LOST Theories So you think you know some secrets of the island? Maybe you can explain everything. If it's original and you can back it up, we'd love to hear it.

+ Numbers Vaccine Prevents Temporal Displacement/Time Skipping

This is not my theory, it is one I heard from a listener on the "Donald is Lost! Podcast." Sorry, I don't remember the listener's name.

The listener postulated that the reason that only the Losties, the Science Team, and Juliet are skipping, and not the Others, is because the "Numbers Vaccine," first scene in The Swan being used by Desmond, prevents a person from suffering any kind of temporal displacement from the island's effects. The Others still have access to this vaccine, and still use it, and thus they do not skip.

Desmond tells us that he was directed to inject himself with the vaccine every 9 days. Juliet skips with the rest of the Losties because she has been with the Losties considerably longer than that, and she was with them precisely 9 days from the time the Freighties invaded the island, up until the time Ben turned the wheel and the skipping began. It is unlikely she would have had any access to the vaccine during that time.

I was impressed by this theory, to me it quite elegantly explains why only certain people seem to be skipping. What they all have in common, is no access to the "Numbers Vaccine."

Re: Numbers Vaccine Prevents Temporal Displacement/Time Skipping

This must not have been the first time the island has skipped aroiund, if that is the case. Why vaccinate every 9 days for something that has only happened once?

Maybe the vaccine works more as a FlashBack suppressant?

Re: Numbers Vaccine Prevents Temporal Displacement/Time Skipping

Ok, like iodine with anti-radiation treatment.
The shots could block the effects of "the vast amounts of energy that can disrupt the time-space continuum" that compellingly causes NO physical effect on the environment or the people around associated with discharges of large quantities of ionizing ratiation...

The trees, rocks and other stuff doesn't seem to be affected by the time-skipping either. Were they sprayed with the vaccine too?

Sawyer when he got back in time was there with Kate and Claire.
Only Claire had taken the vaccine at the time. Why did Kate not disappear with Sawyer? Was Sawyer not really there?

The phenomenon affected Sawyer and not Kate independently of whether they had taken the vaccine or not.

IMO the vaccine is just some kind of tranquilizer intented to keep Dharma underlings chemically under control in order to maintain social "stability" in the collective and prevent any subversive thoughts or actions from manifesting.

Low dose aspirin would work, too.
