    They answered most of the questions and now your upset because the biggest one (whats the island) wasn't. the unanswered mystery is the one that will stay with us the longest. The flash purgatory wasn't that great but the idea of it was. Trying to find a fulfillment.

    Ok, I believe the "Jacob's Ladder" Scenario ending because, It showed the Airplane wreckage debris all over the beach.. Except it was rusted.. So it shows me that everybody died and they didn't move the plane at all.. Jack going back where he first "wake up" showed what really happened.. The wound on he's side is where Kate Sew him up and Vincent waking him up.. Then looking up imagining his plane going to crash.. If we look back when jack got out of the light Cave, Ben, Hurley and Desmond already left and everything is green.. So it tells me that some time passed by.. So the plane that left w/Kate n Sawyer already was gone.. So by this evidence it was all imagined just like "Jacob's Ladder" movie. When they were in Purgatory/side verse, why couldn't they remember they were on the island?

    @ anyone who thought the series was good...If everyone ends up in heaven anyway, why bother doing anything in life/ with the island? what a waste of 6 years of my life. writers had no idea what they were doing. we were played.

    I watched the original airing of the first episode and the finale last night. I have no regrets.

    Now as for any further information on the Island...how can you expect Lost to pinpoint exactly what the Source was without becoming sickeningly heavy-handed and self-righteous? The Source is meant to be what we cannot understand - in fact we can only begin to grasp it and its significance in our own personal afterlife trials we create for ourselves. Before we move on. That's where Sideways/Purgatory factored in...it was not any more important than the mortal world they lived on. It was all part of the whole, and really the two could not be separated seeing how much character investment is called upon for this series to even work in the first place.

    Come on, guys...this is why we made up that little word called "interpretation."

    Guys, really? They answered the ultimate mystery of the Island as best as they could. They devoted multiple focus points throughout the whole series in piecing together what the Island was, and this is especially where we see Across the Sea come into place.

    The Island moved around because of the exotic matter on it - the matter that our scientists cannot even begin to comprehend, which allows it to do things completely contrary to our understanding of nature. It has made phenomena happen on the Island that cannot be explained, but what matters most of it in relation to our Losties is that during their whole experience of the Island, it was under Jacob's rule.

    The Island in and of itself is the ultimate of ultimates, and depending on the person protecting it, it can be made to do many different things. This is clearly implied when Ben tells Hurley he can let Desmond leave, he can "change the rules."

    ForestGump70- I think it would be impossibe to answer what is the Island. It's like trying to answer What is God? or What caused the Big Bang. It just would lead to more Questions.

    The answered what the island was while simultaneously resolving everything for the characters. The was the source for the passage to the afterlife. Think about it, it was this source of light that they where protecting and at the end it was a bright light that took them all away. Sure, they didn't tell us what the entire history of the island was, but that because it was obviously a place that had been around for millenniums maybe even all of time. In order to tell its whole history they basically would have had to devise their whole own imaginary religion.

    I agree with Kevin, nothing was explained about the island. Thats what kept so many of us watching...WTF is the island and how is all this crazy stuff happening? The show was about the people too, but i think most fans were watched for the islands mysteries.
