  1. Stated as questions or possibilities (avoid question marks, "Maybe", "I think", etc).
  2. More appropriate for another article.
  3. Illogical or previously disproven.
  4. Proven by canon source, and moved to main article.
  5. Speculative and lacking any evidence to support arguments.
  6. Responding to another theory (use discussion page instead).
  • This does not include responses that can stand alone as its own theory.
  • Usage of an indented bullet does not imply the statement is a response.

See the Lostpedia theory policy for more details.

  • The map is a map to the Other's Village - The switchback road would only be used for steep or impassable terrain.
    • When comparing the road map to Sayid's map, the maps appear to show the same area. The road map for elevation and the proposed road, and Sayid's map for showing electrical wiring.
  • The map show plans for building a road between the Swan hatch and some other higher elevation location, but was never completed (perhaps due to the Incident).
    • Even if it was completed, 20+ years of natural erosion and overgrowth would have wiped it out.
  • It might be connected to the subterranean conduit, or even be the subterranean conduit itself.
  • If there was a car found on the overgrown road, it could be possible that it leads to the Pala Ferry. This would be a reasonable explanation for the VW bus tipped over with the deceased DHARMA workman "Roger".
  • Either the road was never completed, or it was completely overgrown before Radzinsky began making the blast door map, which doesn't show any roads.
  • It looks like the "road" ends where there was a concrete wall in the Swan. Maybe it is a tunnel, not a road.
    • But if it was a tunnel, it wouldn't need the switchbacks.
