Time passage for the Islanders
« on: February 13, 2009, 06:38:09 PM »
Estimate of relative time passage for the I6

Ben turns the wheel and sends our I6 jumping through time. It is hard to determine the amount of time that is passing for them.
Flash 1: 2001? This is when Yemi's drug plane crashes on the island. Time passage: 30-60 min.
Flash 2: Future 2005-2008 This is when Richard fixes Johns leg. Time passage: 5 min.
Flash 3: 2001-2004 Here we see the hatch intact and Dan talks to Des. Time passage 20-30min.
Flash 4: 1954 Dan returns after 2 hours and Miles brings back a boar 3 hours later, they are attacked and take 2 others hostage John give Richard his compass. Time passage:  5 hours until attack then 6 hours until daybreak total 11 hours?
Flash 5: day 41. Arrive during the day walk until night to see the light and Kate Time passage: 4-6 hours.
Flash 6: Future 2008? They walk to the beach to find future camp and take boat. Time passage: 1-2 hours.
Flash 7: Nov 18, 1988 Arrive in rain talk to Rousoe Smokey rips off arm. Time passage: 7 hours?
Flash 8: Nov 25, 1988? Jin finds arm, walks to beach, gets shot at and runs away Time passage: 1 hour.
Flashes 9-12: ?? Jin meets up with the gang and start to walk to orchid. Orchid is post Dharma. Time passage: 2-3 hours.
Flash 10: Pre-Dharma Locke goes down a well. Time passage: 5 min.
Flash 11: Pre-well Sawyer is holding a rope in the ground, Locke talks to Christian and fixes the wheel. Time passage: 10 min.
Flash 12: Dharma construction?  Locke fixed the wheel to get off the island and gave us 1 last time jump.

Total time about 30+ hours

I am laughing out loud, because I was thinking this same thing - no grub or shut eye.  That alone would kill me.  :D

Thanks for the summary WS.  That was helpful.

I think Flash 4 was longer than that...At daybreak, Daniel, Miles, and Charlotte are at the stream and are escorted back to the Others' camp, which takes a bit. Locke shows up at least 10 minutes after that, since he said he'd give Sawyer a head start. I think it was closer to mid-morning when they jumped. Just a few more hours... 15 hours? 11am-ish when they jumped?

You forgot the 5 second one after "Flashes 9-12: ?? Jin meets up with the gang and start to walk to orchid. Orchid is post Dharma. Time passage: 2-3 hours"

Also it must be a b*tch time travelling food will rot or vanish in your stomach the light will wake you, shame though that the flashes will stop, it taught us alot

I dont think food will rot or vanish in your stomach... i think as long as your touching something it will stay in tact. no matter how far the gap in time... for example... the zodiac, sawyers rope, all their clothes.. etc.

Yes, if you watch the flash where Sawyer is holding the rope leading into the dirt you see his his gun was leaning on his leg and is came with him.

They jump from day to night, from year to year, why is Miles wearing that watch?

I'm pretty sure Charlotte has (had) one too, but I don't think they're anything more than just wardrobe.

I wasn't serious. I found it funny to see that he has a watch, while time is messed up.
Will put a  ;) next time.

We should just ask miles how much time has passed for them.

That's funny because I went looking for screen captures of his watch and didn't see anything special about...  wild goose chase... Anyway, at least with his watch he can track how long they've been jumping and let Writers_Strike know the total time :)
