This is also likely why the Numbers appeared to be cursed. The purpose of the DHARMA Initiative was to alter these values in order to stave off the destruction of mankind. The values were broadcast from the radio tower, with the intent of using the broadcast to determine when DHARMA had succeeded in changed them. ("The Lost Experience")

  • What is the Source?
    • The Source is the electromagnetic core of the island. The electromagnetism found deep within the island originates here and radiates out to other parts of the island, so therefore it exists here in its most powerful form. ("The End")
  • Why must it be protected?
    • The Source must be protected because if the energy is released, it could cause a global catastrophe. Similar to the Swan Incident, the electromagnetic expulsion caused the island to shake, but much more severely. Cliffs began to split in half and there were landslides and rockfalls. If it had escalated, the implications could have been disastrous. ("The End")
