Desmond-centric thoughts: Can he save the day?

("Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast."-'Ace' Rimmer, from BBC's "Red Dwarf"),..Desmond Hume has become a pivotal player in the upcoming "Lost" finale. Is his ability to withstand long periods of intense EM, as shown when he was exposed to the "Tesla " coil? When he turned the fail-safe key , exploding the hatch, did he obtain powers like Magneto, from X-men? To defeat MIB, does he somehow go back in time to assist the universe in it's unfortunate way of correcting it's course? --("I'll see you in another life, Brutha...")--Does he go back in time and stop Jacob from going into his fit of rage, making his fateful mistake? ("Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?"=="Of course it is happening inside your head Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?"--Harry Potter and Dumbldore) ("He felt that his whole life was some kind of dream and he sometimes wondered whose it was and whether they were enjoying it")--Douglas Adams--Desmond, either insane, or is also a key factor in the FST. He appears to be taking as many as he can to either the "Lamp post" or to Dr. Chang's Museum.--(Now this place I've got to see, where Island artifacts may still exist from the sunken island.) If Desmond were able to visit Jacob in the past, under other Mother's nose, would it help him contain his rage? Would he stop MIB from killing her also? When she told MIB "Thank you...--...was she grateful to die or knew it would lead to Jacob's rage? Can MIB be destroyed? He seems invulnerable. ("I take a dim view of watching my own destruction.")-Jack from the 1956 "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"--Or can he only be contained? ("There was a bomb! He — he ate it!") - Lois Lane...("I'm this time-bomb of responsibility waiting to go off." - Claire, season one,...Jack steps up to the plate...("I'm not a leader!", "And yet they all treat you like one." - Jack and Locke) He sailed into a hurricane and ran aground on the island. The night he turned the light on in the hatch, he probably saved Locke's sanity. ("In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit."--Tolkien) Now, with his sacrifice, he could save the island, and the world. Contradicting Eloise Hawking's words to Desmond... "pushing the button is the most important thing you'll ever do", or maybe it was then....("There are names among us that are worth more than a thousand mail-clad knights apiece." - Gandalf) Later, in the hospital, to Penny, she said,..."for the first time in a long time,I dont know whats about to happen"..When she chooses a ring, before telling Desmond not to buy it, Eloise says..."I have just the thing. This won't blind any queens, to be sure, but still has the sparkle of life." later, when he refuses to give the ring back, she says, cryptically, "...And if you don't do those things, Desmond David Hume, every single one of us is dead. So give me that sodding ring." Perhaps, our time traveled "Hobbit" is carrying the "ring" of destiny, into a dark past to regain a light in "losties" future? ("So we saved the world together for a while, and that was lovely."-Desmond)-
