OK, with Lula's permission, I'm going to jump right in here:
In the season finale, we learn The Orchid is not really a botanical research station. Instead, The Orchid was designed to investigate 'unique properties' of the Island, it is these properties create a kind of Casimir Effect. He points to a white triangular door, calling it the vault.
Halliwax explains that the vault was constructed adjacent to what they believe to be a pocket of negatively-charged exotic matter. Halliwax then warns the viewer never to place any metal objects inside the vault. Halliwax then places a white rabbit inside the vault, closing the doors and stating that they will send it 100 milliseconds into the future.
I'm curious. Exotic means foreign, not native, right? (I looked it up in the dictionary to be sure) So, Where did it come from? Outer space? There are hieroglyphics on the rocks and such down in that icy place where Ben goes to "move" the island.
How does it work? How do they move the island? Where does it go? How will the Oceanic Six find the island now?
I'm curious if you guys have any thoughts on this.
