In 1984 a consortium of American business men populated the island in order to use it as a test site for cutting edge developments in eugenics and genetic engineering.
Through this research they aimed to use nanotechnology to gain access to mystical knowledge.
The plane crash was an act of sabotage by Claire. The survivors of flight 815 have all been brainwashed by the Hanso Foundation and the so-called 'monster' is in reality an experimental new type of four dimensional hyperfluid.
There are two groups of Others. One group are synthetic humans developed as part of the Dharma initiative and the other are survivors of a ship wreck which occured several years ago.
The 'incident' mentioned in the orientation film refers to an event where an experimental new type of computer system attained consciousness and killed off several Dharma researchers as a self preservation measure and the button in the hatch must be pressed every 108 minutes to prevent the activation of a doomsday device.
The numbers represent a physical constant which is central to the physics of time travel.
The island was originally acquired in 1979 by the illuminati and subsequently used as a test site for cutting edge developments in psychology and life extension.
The illuminati's plan was to develop technology which could potentially communicate with extraterrestrial beings.
The plane crash was an act of sabotage by Claire. The survivors of flight 815 are being administered hallucinogenic drugs and the 'monster' is in reality a drug-induced hallucination.
The Others are loyal devotees of Alvar Hanso.
The 'incident' mentioned in the orientation film refers to a situation where experimental nanotechnology accidentally escaped from Dharma's laboratory and the pressing of the button every 108 minutes is simply a crude psychological endurance test.
