I don't know the Alvar Hanso thing.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hanso_Foundation#Alvar_Hanso

I'm shrinking this, just in case.


http://www.4815162342.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3377

Hans Oersted discovered electromagnetism in 1820.
In 1999 the 'Oersted' satellite was launched with the purpose of charting Earth's magnetic field. The findings led scientists to believe that there might be a polar reversal imminent, the effects of which could be cataclysmic: if Earth were to lose its magnetosphere, it would be vulnerable to massive radiation from the space/sun. The satellite also revealed an anomaly in the magnetic field under South Africa; it is pointing the opposite direction from the rest of the Earth's field and has been growing for hundreds of years. Please Google this info. A similar idea was also used in the film 'The Core'.

Hannes Alfven
His contribution to science - mainly in the field of electromagnetism - revolutionized how scientists view the universe, winning a Nobel Prize on the way. He spoke English, German, French, Russian, and some Spanish and Chinese; and studied oriental philosophy and religion. He spent time in the Fiji Islands. He was fascinated by the "green flash" - a phenomenon that sometimes occurs at sunset. By no coincidence (Green Lantern and Flash comic)

Alfvén plus Hans O. equals Alvar Hanso.

Scientists, fearing the cataclysmic events of a polar reversal, prepared an environment for the survival of the human race. They either directly or indirectly engineered the kind of people who would make up a community fit for survival and propagation of a new world. In the main, this means characters without father/mother figures; and/or characters with skills for survival: a doctor, an engineer, a survivalist, a mercenary; and characters of sufficiently varied genetic background: african, caucasian, asian, etc. to ensure a healthy gene pool for generations.

Then on an island which already had a massive natural source of electromagnetism, they constructed an artificial magnetosphere, alluded to in Walt's/Hurley's comic

The image with the "translation", IMO, isn't clear at all.

Yeah. What I meant is that there is no explanation there at all.  How did we arrive at 'caus. die'?  Are the glyphs translated as phonetics for English or phonetics for Egyptian?  If they are for Egyptian, what does it translate to in Egyptian and what are possible translations from that into English?

I haven't thought of that song in years.  I think.  Unless someone searches and finds that I posted the lyrics like 6 months ago, which hey, maybe I did.

Okay, here's an image of the big reveal last night, then another with translation (possible spoilers), and finally something neat someone discovered.  All linked, in case you haven't seen the episode yet.

It was a woman of Hispanic descent but I didn't recognize her as one of the cast members. Is she somehow related to one of the cast members?

I want to go on the record now, to say that I think the girl Hurley is crushing on was -in- the mental institution Hurley was in.  Not as a doctor, but as a patient...

Haha.  I still don't trust her.  At least her acting ability seems to have improved some.

Is it really all in Hurley's head?  Last week's episode was very good.  Dave was funny.

And I didn't notice that was Nadia either.  How interesting.

Nope.  Last night recapped.  Every episode between now and the season closer is new.  May 24th is the last new one I believe.

The Hanso Foundation site has been updated.

ABC has released the list of who the last four flashbacks belong to. The season finale flashbacker is a doozy.

If you would like to read a rather revealing look ahead at the show from the mouth of one of the creators, go peruse the aintitcool.com Lost thread for tonight's episode.  (Just don't read the article itself, unless you wanna know who the flashbackers are).

The big, shiny new Easter egg on the Hanso site, shrank down just as far as it can go.

Global Welfare Consortium - 19 September, 2005
Rue Grande 1623
1221 Geneva 27
Switzerland


To: Dr. Roderick Johnson, M.D., Ph.D., Clinical Director
center for Disease Control

From: GWC Executive Committee
RE: Violation of Ethical Guidelines/ The Hanso Life-
Extension Project

CC: Mr. Peter Thompson, Vice President, General Counsel,
The Hanso Foundation; Hugh McIntyre, Vice President and
Communications Director, The Hanso Foundation

Dr. Johnson:

We have received word of an unfortunate and most alarming
issue in the past days concerning research operations by
The Hanso Foundation in the sub-Saharan region of Africa
Sadly, we have exhausted our mandate as a watchdog
organization and must petition you for a formal
investigation.

It has come to our attention that a new strain of
meningococcal disease has been reported in the coastal
villages of the United Republic of Tanzania. This strain
is particularly alarming in that it has successfully
breached the simian/homo sapiens barrier.

As the enclosed documentation and correspondance
demostrate, we have repeatedly asked the Executive Board
of the Hanso Foundation for assistance in determining the
possible correlation between the outbreak of this
transgenic disease and the research being conducted on
primates in their Experimenatal Station in Zanzibar.
As our requests have been met with utter and complete
disregard, we feel we have no other choice than to demand
your immediate intervention.

As the Hanso Foundation is using primates to research gene
therapies intended for human use, the correlation should
be obvious.

Considering the alarming nature of this outbreak and
the mounting death toll it is imperative that the Hanso
Foundation immediately open the doors of their
Experimental Station for inspection and, should a link
be found between their work and this disease, cease and
desist their activities immediately.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
Lives are at stake.

I just would like everyone to know that I am only 4 episodes behind the current wave.  I started watching Christmas eve of this year.  I enjoy the power of DVD and downloading but soon I will be a week to week schlub like the rest of you. 

I have not read anything in ITT for fear of spoilers.
