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.

+ PURPOSE OF EXECUTION BUTTON

In the first scene of the season premiere we saw Desmond hit the execution button. He then went on do numerous chores and things around his place over a long period of time. It wasnt until a while later that he heard the explosion from the hatch door being opened which immediatley grabbed his attention. So around the time that Desmond hit the execution button was when Arzt (not sure of the spelling of his name) died. The execution button is what causes someone to die on the island. This is why Walt says not to push the button and why Locke told Jack not to push it.

That can't be right. Because the morning routine couldn't have been more than an hour, and it would be several hours from when Arzt died (remember it was light outside) and the hatch was blown (completely dark).

New, but brings the pain.

had the same thought, but as the post above says, not sure of time frame issues..did find it kind of odd that the button says execute and not enter, and why was Locke so quick to say "I wouldnt do that" when Jack was going to push the button? there were no commands on screen to actually execute...the cursor would just drop down to the next line with nothing to 'execute'

Andrew I do support this theory though your timeline is incorrect. Arntz was killed daytime previous day.

The explosion Desmond experienced was the hatch being blown.

This theory is great, Anytime someone uses the number mad bad mojo happens. I think if you match things up you find that Desmond hitting the "Execution" button matches more so when the Boat was attacked / blown / people possibly killed.

I thought the execute button activated the "security system" or the generator that fuels his living pod.

Can we determine which came first.

Did Desmond just happen to be entering the numbers as maybe part of his normal morning routine

OR

Did the computer signal Desmond via sound that it was needed for him to enter numbers?

Hi, I'm new here...

Just wondering if anyone else thought that the cursor on the computer screen looked a little odd...

Looked a little sinister... almost like a monster.

If the timeframe is off for blowing up Arzt, maybe he hit the "execute" button right before the mosnter attacked Locke, Kate, and Jack carrying back the dynamite.

Maybe the computer controls the "security system"?

I think it's a test to insure he doesn't have the "sickness." Perhaps if he fails, the facility goes into somekind of lockdown.

i think the execute button is tied in to the island security system somehow as well.
