Theory: The island exists within or around a SpaceTime Singularity.
Many physicists have theorized the existence of numerous micro-singularities on Earth, too small to detect. What has been qualitatively studied remains what can bend visible light - collapsed stars, etc. However, Einstein (even before the first visible singularity) theorized with complex mathematics the possibility for various types of these phenomenon. Within the confines of the spacial location do normal physics and the understanding of time breakdown. I am narrowing this down to that of a SpaceTime Singularity.
Theories of singularities are so vast and complex, and our actual knowledge of them is so limited, the writers could easily base a foundation of this in the show; …Read more >
