DHARMA計劃，全名為自發物質應用探索和研究部門，是一個在70年代初期至80年代末期之間所進行科學研究的組織。DHARMA計劃由密歇根大學的候選博士Gerald DeGroot和Karen DeGroot創辦，並由Hanso基金會提供一切的資金。組織的總部位於美國密歇根州的安娜堡，而主要進行研究的地點則在小島上。DHARMA計劃所進行的研究工作十分廣泛，當中包括生物學、化學、電磁學、氣象學、心理學、超心理學、動物學、動物行為學、真菌學、寶石學、社會工程學等，至於組織的目標則是為了要了解小島的特性，促進人類進步並使世界更加和平。DHARMA計劃在小島上興建了大量設備完善的設施，還有許多用來進行不同研究活動的研究站，組織亦聘請了大量科學家和員工到小島去工作，當中包括領袖Horace Goodspeed。DHARMA計劃以中國八卦符號作為其標誌，並印刷到不同的食品、物品，甚至運輸工具上，另外組織亦利用不同的八卦符號去區別各個研究站和部份地點。在小島上，DHARMA計劃的成員多次與當地的敵人發生衝突，雖然雙方早已達成停戰協議，但這仍然阻止不了衝突的發生。最終在1987年末發生了肅清事件，差不多所有在小島上的DHARMA成員都被敵人殺害，計劃因此而終告失敗，Hanso基金會亦開始暫停向組織提供資金，而創辦人DeGroot夫婦亦下落不明。
An as of yet unidentified man was able to find the location of the Island in the 1960s (well before 1974, when the DI was well-established), by way of the Lamp Post station in Los Angeles -- as explained by Eloise Hawking. Located underneath a church, the Lamp Post harnessed the unique pocket of energy in that area and used it to find other similar pockets around the globe. Though this man was only interested in one specific area: the Island. Since the Island was always moving, the Lamp Post was integral in finding the Island's location. Within a few years' time, the location was uncovered, and a tiny community was formed on the Island, called the DHARMA Initiative. Quite possibly the United States Navy, under the "Philadelphia project" located the island for nuclear testing, over the course of five years Richard Alpert was able to recruit a militia to minimize the islands exposure to the world.
Settling on the Island编辑
The Barracks became the center of operation for the DHARMA Initiative on the Island. Significant quantities of construction materials, electronic equipment and various vehicles and machinery were brought to the Island during the phase of settlement for the construction of the various DHARMA stations. Off the Island, the DHARMA Initiative's activities were coordinated from Ann Arbor in Michigan. (5x13)
Not long after settling on the Island, the DHARMA Initiative fought an armed conflict with a group they called the Hostiles prior to 1973. The reasons for the conflict are not known, though Horace Goodspeed stated that the Hostiles were natives to the Island, implying that a conflict could have arisen from DHARMA moving into their territory or intruding on the Island. On August 15, 1973, DHARMA and the Hostiles agreed to a Truce, and an uneasy peace existed for nearly two decades.
DHARMA appears not only to have violated the Truce but to have taken steps as the conflict escalated, including devoting one of their stations (The Arrow) to developing new strategies against the Hostiles, installation of security cameras and other monitoring systems, weapon stockpiles (unusual for a utopian community) and even having a professional interogator on their staff. The conflict between the two does not appear to have been helped by the appearance of the time shifting survivors in 1974-1977.
Regardless of the cause, the conflict ended in December 1992 with an event known as the Purge. The Hostiles launched a toxic gas attack on the Barracks (and possibly other locations) that killed nearly all DHARMA personnel on the Island. Staff at The Swan survived, as they were sealed inside their station, and other DHARMA members, including Benjamin Linus and Ethan Rom survived by joining the Hostiles. The bodies of those killed in the attack were piled into an open mass grave in the jungle. The Hostiles continue to survive today as the group Danielle Rousseau, the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 and the survivors of the freighter Kahana call "the Others".
In the March 20, 2007 Official Lost Podcast, Carlton Cuse said he did not believe that The Others knew about the Swan station, but acknowledged that they might have observed the Swan through the monitors at the Pearl. The last known working member of the Initiative on the Island was Kelvin Inman, who died September 22, 2004.
Hugh McIntyre of the Hanso Foundation said in an interview as part of The Lost Experience that the DHARMA Initiative's funding was cut in 1987. Thomas Mittelwerk also claimed in the Sri Lanka video, "we all know what happened—the DHARMA Initiative failed." In the Official Lost Podcasts, executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse also make frequent references to DHARMA's fall as a "collapse", explaining that the polar bears escaped from their cages during the collapse, for example.
However, the truth of when the Intiative collapsed or if indeed it did at all is uncertain due to the events of the Purge, which reportedly occurred five years after the date quoted by Hugh McIntyre. Furthermore, in the Sri Lanka Video, it is shown that even in 2006 similar work on the Valenzetti Equation is being conducted, suggesting the project's major aims are still being investigated in some new incarnation by Thomas Mittelwerk. It has also been shown that the Swan station received supplies with DHARMA Initiative-branded food and necessities up to at least December 2004, and that Kelvin Inman joined the DHARMA Initiative after the Gulf War in 1991, both indicating that the Initiative did not end its operations in 1987 as McIntyre stated.
In the Dharma Initiative Recruiting Project of 2008, unknown benefactors attempted to restart the Initiative but failed due to constrains by the Template:Link. The "Project" consisted of a series of tests that dealt with different areas of expertise. The tests measured various skills of recruits, and official Volunteer Assessment Dossiers were sent out to recruits on November 18th. The "Project" was unable to continue spending due to the financial crisis, and sold the Dharma Initiative to the T.V. show Lost. Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse started a new website called Dharmaspecialaccess.com that gave recruits exclusive information on upcoming Lost info.
According to various orientation films, the Initiative was founded in 1970 by Gerald and Karen DeGroot, two doctoral candidates at the University of Michigan. It was financially backed by Danish industrialist and munitions magnate Alvar Hanso and his Hanso Foundation. The alleged purpose of the Initiative, according to the Swan Orientation film, was to create "a large-scale communal research compound where scientists and free-thinkers from around the globe could pursue research in meteorology, psychology, parapsychology, zoology, electromagnetism, and Utopian social-[static]."
The Barracks video also said that the mission of the Initiative on the Island was to study its unique properties for the betterment of mankind and advancement of world peace.
The Sri Lanka Video of The Lost Experience appears to build on the last statement, explaining that the DHARMA Initiative was part of a project begun in response to the Valenzetti Equation commissioned by the UN in 1967, a mathematical formula that reportedly predicts the amount of time until the extinction of mankind. The purpose of the DHARMA Initiative on the Island was to use scientific research to manipulate the environment in order to change any one of the core factors of the Valenzetti Equation which, in turn, would change the Equation's result and thus change mankind's destiny. They were also interested in researching the unique properties on the Island found nowhere else in the world, again for the betterment of humanity.
《迷失》官方网络电台透露DHARMA这个名字是几个词的首字母。稍后就在虚拟现实游戏-The Lost Experience中出现，经过Rachel Blake（那时的知名黑客Persephone）的线索，玩家在Hanso基金会的网站 玩记忆游戏，渐渐的当玩家玩到第42关（数字中最大的一个）时这些首字母的全称就出现了：Department of Heuristics And Research on Material Applications（自发的物质应用探索和研究部门），稍后这简称就在斯里兰卡的录像中和中被确认了。
在防爆门地图上，The Flame的編號被标为4号，但在地图上它的位置却不正确（防爆门地图上的注：所谓的4号位置-The Flame）The Staff被标为6号（防爆门地图上的注：…但可能是 6 号）但这却和外泄的The Orchid指導片中DR.'Edgar Hallowax' （也叫Dr.Marvin Candle）明确的提到The Orchid是DHARMA Initiative的第六站相冲突。
DHARMA Initiative stations编辑
The DHARMA Initiative conducted research and other activities on the Island in a number of stations. They all have (or have had) power (from an unknown source) and a water supply as well as various kinds of equipment (e.g. machinery, living quarters, computers, medical equipment, etc). Each facility also has its own octagon-shaped logo, utilizing a different symbol to designate which station items or personnel correspond to.
It is known from the orientation films that there were at least six stations at the time they were filmed in 1980, with the Swan station shown as "3 of 6", for instance. However, a total of nine different stations have already been visited on the show, suggesting that either additional stations and films were made after 1980, and/or that an unknown number of stations did not include "Orientation" films (possibly ones kept secret from general DHARMA staff). Other stations to be identified with numbers include the Pearl as number 5, the Arrow as number 2 and the Orchid as number 6. The Flame was also referred to as number 4 on the blast door map, though this may not be accurate.

- A radio tower was built by the DHARMA Initiative ostensibly to relay the results of their experiments to their backers and external supporters off the Island. Multiple reports describe the tower as continuously broadcasting the Numbers.
- Where the DHARMA Initiative gets their power has always been a background question of the survivors since the discovery of The Swan. Sayid theorized at the time that the Swan had its own geothermal generator, although prevalance of electricity at DHARMA facilities across the Island (especially the large amounts of power needed by the radio tower for continuous transmission) suggests another source. The Others maintained a deception among their own people that The Tempest was a power station, but this proved to be untrue. In "" it was revealed that The Hydra contained a large and powerful generator, although in 2007 a member of Widmore's team indicated it hadn't been used in some twenty years indicating it is not the Island's source.
The blast door map at the Swan contained a number of cryptic references to other DHARMA stations or facilities.
- The blast door map references a station marked "C3" with a notation indicating it contains light industrial equipment and is a possible manufacturing facility. This is likely a reference to The Tempest.
- The map gives two references that an as-yet unseen weather or meteorological station may exist. The notes seem to suggest it may be located at higher elevation up in the mountains. The Swan Orientation Film also mentions meteorology as one of DHARMA's primary areas of research.
- The map also makes one cryptic reference to a location which may serve as a listening station and that cryptographic research and communications analysis are carried out here. Why DHARMA would be interested in cryptography is unknown.
Note that some of the stations have names related in some way to the stories of Apollo in Greek Mythology. Apollo was born on the island of Delos which at the time floated freely in the ocean and was difficult to reach because of swirling tides surrounding it.

The Door was presumed to be the Hatch to another station, but when opened by Sayid in 第2季 第23集 it was revealed to be a facade covering a rocky wall, however, this may be the aborted #7 station on the blast door map but there are no facts to prove it one way or the other.
These were documented on the blast door map but not yet discovered:
- Two stations labeled with "C3?" and "C4?".
- A seventh station that was crossed out. It may not have been built, or might have been destroyed, or might be the presumed station the Door. It may also have been crossed out because they were not sure it existed, explained by the "Unknown!" notation above it. Elsewhere on the map, the text "Alleged location of aborted #7. Large number of underground springs, heavy water table" appears. The text may refer to the seventh station.
- Numbers written in the corners, in the form C#/# appear only on the jigsaw puzzles and do not appear on the actual blast door within the show.
- There is a yet-to-be-seen station called The Orchid whose orientation video has been released to the audience. The purpose and abilities of this station are yet to be determined.
- The yet-unseen Temple is represented on Ben's map by a DHARMA logo. However this is insufficient to conclude that the Temple was build by DHARMA or was indeed a station.
Names of the stations编辑
One set of the stations has names related in some way to the stories of Apollo in Greek Mythology. Apollo was born on the island of Delos which at the time floated freely in the ocean and was difficult to reach because of swirling tides surrounding it.
- The Arrow
- Apollo's most common attribute was the bow and arrow. He was a god of archery.
- The Staff
- The Caduceus staff originally belonged to Apollo. Apollo was a god of healing (and of plagues). Apollo traded the staff of Caduceus to Hermes for a lyre.
- The Swan
- Zeus assumed the shape of a swan when he raped and impregnated Leta. When Leta gave birth to Apollo, the island on which he was born was encircled by a flock of swans. Swans were afterward sacred to Apollo.
- The Flame
- Apollo was a sun god.
- The Hydra
- Apollo sent a crow to fetch water. The bird stopped to eat figs and wasted lots of time. Knowing Apollo would be angry, the crow captured the Hydra and attempted to blame it for causing the delay. Apollo saw through the ruse.
The Apollo theme also might extend to the Apollo Candy Company and their product, the Apollo Candy Bar
Other stations, which also feature inverted DHARMA logos, seemed to be named according to a different scheme.
- The Pearl
- Much like a pearl inside of a shell, the name could possibly be alluding to the fact that it is in the center of the island and central to the DHARMA Initiative stations, both in its surveillance capabilities and geographic location. For Hindus, the pearl is one of the planetary gems, associated with the moon (N.B. in Greek mythology, Artemis, the twin sister of Apollo, was the moon goddess). The Pearl could also be a literary reference to John Steinbeck's novel, "The Pearl"
- The Looking Glass
- The most apparent reference seems to be towards Lewis Carrol's sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland titled Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There.
- The Tempest
- Most likely a reference to William Shakespeare's play The Tempest, which takes place on a mysterious desert island. The wave symbol could signify the ship that was wrecked on the island due to Prospero's magic.
DHARMA Initiative orientation films编辑
To instruct its members, the DHARMA Initiative has created several orientation films. Known films are:
- The Barracks video - An introductory video that new members of the Initiative were shown upon reaching the Island. Marvin Candle explained the purpose of the Initiative and security protocols for the Barracks.
- The Swan Orientation film - Instructing the Swan station's inhabitants about the protocol, supposedly as a consequence of an unspecified incident. The film includes a short history of the Initiative.
- The Pearl Orientation video - Instructing the Pearl station inhabitants on monitoring other stations.
- Outtakes of the Orchid Orientation film - Introduced as a teaser for Season 4 at San Diego Comic-Con 2007.
- The Psychology Test Orientation Video - Revealed in The Lost Experience.
- The video filmed in the Sri Lanka Video - Dated 1975, provides a broader history and overview of DHARMA.

DHARMA Initiative logos编辑
The DHARMA initiative is represented by a series of distinct 8-sided logos. These octagon-shaped logos used by the Initiative appear on many items and are seen in the various DHARMA Initiative stations on the Island; they also featured in the orientation films.
The logos are all based on an octagonal design incorporating eight trigrams surrounding a central symbol. The central symbol is unique for each station. The design of the logo was derived from a Chinese concept known as "Bagua"  although the trigrams are all inverted (inside-to-outside) from their normal "Later Heaven" order.
Status of the DHARMA Initiative编辑
The current status of the Initiative is unknown. Hugh McIntyre, head of marketing and promotion for the Hanso Foundation stated the DHARMA Initiative was canceled in 1987. He made these claims in an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, broadcast on 24 May 2006, and also claimed that the information shown on the TV show Lost is fictional. However in the Sri Lanka Video, filmed by Rachel Blake in July 2006, Thomas Mittelwerk is seen showing several people a DHARMA Initiative orientation video, suggesting that the project might still be active in some form. The Swan station on the Island also received supplies with DHARMA-branded food and necessities up to at least December 2004 and Kelvin Inman is known to have joined the DHARMA Initiative after the Gulf War in 1991, both indicating that the Initiative did not end its operations as McIntyre has implied.
In a hacked section of the Hanso Foundation website on June 19, the hacker Rachel Blake (Persephone) posted a message, questioning the status of the DHARMA Initiative and its members.
WHO WERE THEY?
In the Official Lost Podcasts, executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse make frequent references to DHARMA's fall as a "collapse", though they do not give specifics. In the 10/30/06 podcast, they confirm that the polar bears escaped from their cages during the collapse, comparing the situation to when lions escaped the Baghdad Zoo during U.S. bombing of the area.
Main article: The purge
The conflict ended with an event known as the Purge. The Hostiles/Others launched a toxic gas attack on the Barracks and possibly other locations which killed nearly all the staff of the Initiative on the Island. Some members of the Initiative, including Ben Linus, survived the attack by joining the Others. The team at the Swan survived by being sealed in the station. The bodies of the Initiative members were piled into an uncovered mass grave in the jungle. It is unclear when exactly the gassing occurred other than it happened on December 22 at 4pm.
Mikhail Bakunin claimed that the DHARMA Initiative was destroyed in a conflict with the Others. Bakunin said that the DHARMA Initiative had initiated the conflict and that every member of the initiative on the island had been killed.
The Swan station remained under the control of the DHARMA Initiative until 2004. Supplies were dropped on a regular basis to the station but replacements for the crew stopped arriving on the Island at some point before 2001.
The last known working member of the initiative on the Island was Kelvin Inman. He arrived on the Island at some point after 1992 and was sealed in the Swan station, he was left alone by the Others and seemed to be unaware of the Purge. Inman died in 2004.
Former members of the Initiative who joined the Others are still present on the Island.
