Unfortunately, the vortex did not stop! It continued to expand from its center of origin in the Indian Ocean, where Dharmaville once existed! It was theorized that this vortex would eventually swallow the entire world!
In order to determine how much time the world had left, leading scientists ran the timeline, based on the measured expansion of the vortex, through their own supercomputers. The same numbers kept coming up! The world had 4 months, 8 days, 15 hours, 16 minutes, 23 seconds, and 42 hundredths of a second, before it ceased to exist! These “doomsday” numbers, of course, caused panic throughout the population! However, as time passed, an uneasy calm eventually permeated throughout the world.
Back in his TTA office, Aaron Littleton was amused by the irony. The Dharma Iniative and Bentley Linus had achieved what they had always professed was their goal all along. It may have taken the impending threat of an apocalyptic destruction, but the world was finally at peace! The End.
