Title: The Cow & another Station not found...
Post by: Lost-N-Detroit on February 11, 2008, 12:35:52 PM
I have seen some threads already about people questioning why the cow? Here's why the cow was shown to us in this past ep.
When the pilot reaches the top of the ridge I was expecting him to have a gun shoved in his face and it possibly being Locke. But to my surprise it was the old cow from the FLAME station. This leads me to a theory that many have speculated about for some time about another station on the island but at a higher altitude and used for meteorological testing. Now from the past two rescues there has been an issue with the helicopters being hit by some sort of electrical lighting. Could this lighting be produced from this station and shot at incoming mechanical objects knocking their electrical equipment out for a short period of time?
I am assuming that the station would be up higher on the volcanoe.

could the electrical interference be coming from the Smokey fence thing?

It's def. not from the fence. Each time something has flown near the island a electrical charge has been sent. This is not the same charge that brought down OC815. There would be enough of a charge similar to lighting that would knock say a helicopter out for a few seconds not doing enough damge but eough to cripple it for a short period.

Was that the cow from the flame?  I forgot about that.  I thought it was going to be from the pilot's past like Kate's horse.  He seemed to be saying "I saw a cow" as if asking for someone to confirm that it was real.

There were cows at the Flame:

Hard to tell if it is the same bull, can you get a close up of his balls?  :o   ;D

LMAO Wishbone.
This would explain why they were so eager for the 'rescuers' to jump out of the helicopter. Although it showed that the pilot bought the helicopter down. But they did ask him whether he crashed the helicopter as if it was almost inevitable.

Smokey or a real cow. Hard to tell on this island.
I vote cow from the flame. It has wandered off after Locke blew it up.

With respect to electrical interference, we know the Island has electromagnetic anomalies all its own. It's one of the reasons Dharma came here. I don't think we need to postulate anything more than that these anomalies cause instruments to go haywire.

the cow was in time travel...the cow was originally in the fridge that Kate looked in at the Flame...

i wonder how easy it was to get that cow in hawaii..

The blast door map clearly had an area marked as mountainous terrain with electromagnetic properties that was probably used for meteorological experiments. Anyone have a scrren cap of that map that can be posted here?

I'm sure there is something in the Investigations section...

YES!! That's what I was referring to; in the upper right hand corner there are two notes that indicate there may be another station or research facility dedicated to weather experiments.

That unknown station would have to be on the volcanoe which would place it near the FLAME station.

having been to hawaii on several occasions, i can 100% confirm that they do in fact have cows there

For the record, cows have milk.  Bulls have horns.

Cows don't like being called "him".

Have we ever seen another cow somewhere OFF the island? 

I'm thinking about Kate's horse -- it was seen both off and on the island.

Now after Charlotte's episode, we have a polar bear on the island, and polar bear bones (wearing a Dharma collar) off the island.

In Ep. 4, we have Ben working in some sort of facility with a lot of dogs in it.

What's the deal with the animals?  If there's some sort of "bend in the time-space continuum" like TPTB have said (in their "EW" interview), then are the animals travelling back and forth?  Did Kate's horse end up on the highway right in front of the marshall's car and cause that accident because it was "drawn" to her for some reason as it was pulled off-course during some time-travel experiment they were doing on the island?

OK, this is really random and out-there, but I just made the animal connection while reading a past episode summary about the horse...

TPTB said the cow is the same from Patchy's place. Means nothing, just showing that it is ok.

Post by: Madam P on February 28, 2008, 01:48:19 PM
Thanks, Jugdish.  The earlier picture that was posted on this thread didn't look like the same cow -- it looked to me like the one at Patchy's place had horns.  But I'll take TPTB's word for it! 

Now we just have to be on the look-out for this cow in a future flash-forward...  :D

Thank you. This is either a cow (girl) or a bull who desperately wants some surgery. No self-respecting red-blooded Islander bull would be caught dead wearing that prissy horn. His buddies would never let him hear the end of it.
