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.

Computer Re: + PURPOSE OF EXECUTION BUTTON

Did anyone lese work out that the numbers (4,8,15,16,23,42) all add to equal 108 which is the time limit on the hatch clock. Therefore, since we have seen that when they reset the hatch timer, other numbers are present, and since the dharma initiative is just one massive social experiment (i believe), then surely if they typed in larger numbers, they would be able to leave the computer for longer periods.

Must say I am disappointed they havent cleared this up so far (only of season 5 episode2 on netflix) but them blowing the hatch up kind of eliminates any chance of them clearing this up and I am intrigued as to what would happen if different numbers were 'executed'.

Likewise, we know that the keyboard is completely functional as Michael uses it to communicate with Walt so why didnt people like Locke test this out. Moreover, how is Walt so omniscient and omnipresent?...

Actually, we now know that every time the button was pressed, a kitten was sent to Purgatory.
