  • Could be a remnant of the old civilization responsible for The Statue and or The Temple..
  • Jacob built it.
  • Was built by DHARMA in order to reach a certain station quicker.
  • Charlie could be correct in his assumption that Rousseau and her team built it.
  • The reason it fell apart when Charlie crossed it and not when Hurley did was due to Hurley's curse of bringing harm onto others instead of himself, which was a heavy theme during the episode.
    • Maybe also because Charlie is 'destined' to die. This could also tie in with how Charlie was hung by a rope from a tree by Ethan.
      • Charlie was destined to die because he technically died for some time until Jack resuscitated him, when Ethan hung him from a tree.
        • Charlie has had close brushes with death before then, such as nearly being hit by plane debris in the pilot episode. It seems he was destined to die from the beginning.
