Ann Arbor Michigan

In the last few episodes we are starting to hear more chatter about Ann Arbor Michigan. I thought it may be necessary to have a little review. The Dharma initiative was started by Gerald and Karen DeGroot. They were two phd students at the U of M in Ann Arbor. Basically Ann Arbor is the birth place and home of the non island part of the dharma initiative. All of the initiative's direction flows from Ann Arbor. Below is the original Swan station orientation film from season 2. Something to note, this was the first mention of "the incident". Whatever the incident was, the result was that the occupants of the swan station were instructed to start entering the numbers on the computer every 108 minutes. It seems that this season is leading toward revealing what the incident was. My guess is that it has something to do with adult Miles encountering baby Miles. This is a total guess but I've attached part of the orchid orientation video that was released the summer after season 4. We can clearly see how freaked out Dr. Chang is about the the two (same?) time traveling bunnies coming in contact with each other.

  1. at exactly 49 seconds into the second youtube clip you have posted..there appears to be a building for a millisecond that appears to be in a city. I live and am a student at UM and this looks very similar to university towers on south u. in ann arbor.
