Lost Questions Finally Answered

A few of the biggest questions surrounding Lost have been answered. All summer long, The Lost Experience game has been going on which promised fans that if they stuck with it and made it all the way through the game some important questions would be answered about the show such as what the mysterious numbers mean, and what Dharma really is.

These answers have been revealed in the form of a video which was released in short clips. Those clips have been put together and can be seen in its entirety below.

A summary of the video reveals that the numbers are in fact the Valenzetti Equation, which we reported on our Valenzetti Equation Explanation Theory page. The equation is a formula which represents a type of countdown until a deadly event happens but you can read all of the details here.

Dharma is found to be an acronym for:

Department of
Research on


Dharma (the others) was originally sent to the island to “change the core value” of the Valenzetti Equation, or 30% of the worlds population would be wiped out, but they failed to do so. The hatches were built for them to conduct their research and all of their food and materials needed would be dropped off by helicopter.

How they were going to change the core value of the equation wasn’t revealed nor was it revealed why they are still there and why the Losties are on the island. Season 3 starts October 4th in the US and is sure to answer these questions and more.

ABC to Launch `Lost’ Interactive Game

NEW YORK  ABC will launch a global interactive game based on the hit TV show “Lost,” the network announced Monday.

Details, however, are about as mysterious and convoluted as the plot of the island castaway drama. The “Lost Experience” will be Internet-based and will feature a parallel story line that is not part of the TV show.

It will begin May 2 in the United Kingdom, May 3 in the U.S. and May 6 in Australia. There is no winning prize, but the experience will offer clues that could unlock some of the island’s many secrets.

“It’s like a giant, worldwide mysterious jigsaw puzzle that will come to life for all the world to solve,” Mike Benson, senior vice president of marketing for ABC Entertainment, said in a statement.

What is known about the challenge is that it includes the introduction of new characters and the mysterious Hanso Foundation. The first clue requires finding a toll-free number that will be released during the show or commercial breaks.

Clues will vary by continent, so participants will benefit from coordinating their information. ABC said the game is designed to appeal to both fans and people unfamiliar with “Lost.”
