  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 Island is subject to some kind of time paradox.
  • WXR may simply be a modern day US Army station that just happened to be broadcasting nostalgic music.
  • The broadcast could be part of a DHARMA Initiative experiment.
  • WXR is broadcast from the Island's radio tower. It is the radio station that is listened to by the others.
  • The transmission is actually from the 1940's. At the current point in Season 4 (Eggtown), Daniel has begun to show that time doesn't flow the same on the Island. The signal has gone the way of Dan's rocket; while it was broadcast 60 years ago, it is just now finding its way to the island.
