Thread: The Lost Experience Summary

  1. #1

    Default The Lost Experience Summary

    Hey. I'm new to the Lost experience and i know it sucks getting into an ARG way after it started, but could anyone link to me to a thorough summary that explains each clue in chronological order, and how they linked to each other and what it means? I mean something that really explains it, I've seen some that just say "May 3 06: Found clue on hanso site" I want how they found it, what it means, and what it leads to. Thanks.

    The Lost Experience has finished now, but if you still want a detailed summary of it all, probably the best, most detailed account you'll get will be the lostpedia section on the lost experience clues, go to www.lostpedia.com/wiki/the_lost_experience_clues

    Below is a personal summary that I did for another site, for those who want to catch up without playing, and just want a basic idea of how it could connect to the TV show:


    I know it can be frustrating for people who don’t want to play The Lost Experience to see these posts all summer, but hopefully we can wrap up the central storyline without too many extraneous details.


    Rachel Blake, TLE heroine

    The focus of the story is on a young woman by the name of Rachel Blake. She was raised by a single mother, and decides to trace her educational funds one day, and finds that they originate from The Hanso Foundation (THF), a so-called philanthropic organization that supposedly uses science for the betterment of humankind.

    However, as she digs deeper, she uncovers many dark secrets about the organization. She decides to start hacking their website under the pseudonym “Persephone”, on a mission to expose the executives and projects of THF. They all involve illegal or unethical activities, including illegal organ harvesting, use of mathematical forecasting to start wars, questionable experiments with genetic engineering and life extension, and the intentional spread of viruses to limit population growth.


    Thomas Werner Mittlewerk

    She discovers that the founder of the organization, Alvar Hanso himself, is missing, and that the president and heir apparent, Thomas Werner Mittelwerk, is running the Foundation. He is something of a mad scientist with a Messiah complex, who will stop at nothing to further his own agenda. She follows him and the clues throughout numerous European cities, Sri Lanka, and even stops at Comic Con to accuse the Lost panel writers of being liars and helping THF. Along the way, she meets a number of ‘accessory’ characters that become friends and try to help her, some of whom even give up their lives for the cause.

    The most important things she finds that are relevant to the Lost story are about the DHARMA Initiative’s connection to the Valenzetti Equation (first seen on blast door map). Enzo Valenzetti was an Italian mathematician who was contracted by the U.N. Security Counsel after the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 to formulate an equation to predict how and when humanity would destroy itself. Each of The Numbers: 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42, are “core factors” in this equation, standing for a different method of self-destruction, such as nuclear war or pandemic. The hieroglyphics, as seen on the countdown clock in Lost, mean “Underworld”, but are representative symbols for The Numbers in the Valenzetti Equation.


    The memory game that revealed the DHARMA acronym

    DHARMA turns out to be an acronym that stands for Department of Heuristics and Research into Material Applications. They were a group funded by THF to look into changing these environmental and human factors (The Numbers), thereby saving humanity. They were sent to a remote island location to attempt this, and the stations, food and medicine drops were all for these scientists. The radio tower (Danielle mentioned to Hurley) was set up by DHARMA to broadcast the Numbers until one of the values could be changed. There is the suggestion that the Sickness may have been purposely introduced as a transgenic virus that was part of their experimentation with a ‘vaccine’ aimed at manipulating one of these values.

    In the end, Mittelwerk says DHARMA failed, but he still seems determined to continue the work at all costs, even that of many human lives. He imprisoned mathematicians and autistic savants in the Vik Institute (supposedly a mental health hospital) and forced them to run the Valenzetti Equation over and over, until they verified that a mortality rate of 30% was “optimal” for his research purposes. It appears that there are specific ‘genetic targets’ that are being sought for experimentation, who may have different degrees of susceptibility to this disease.

    He was about to send another group of scientist recruits to some remote villages to spread the virus again, when he was partially thwarted by Rachel Blake. She blew the whistle on THF’s unsavory activities. THF headquarters were raided by law enforcement, but it was a trap, and Mittelwerk got away. His last words were a vow that we hadn’t heard the last from him, and that he still had the virus and planned to use it.


    Alvar Hanso from the Sri Lanka video

    In the end, Rachel tracks down Alvar Hanso in Norway. He claims that he was unable to stop Mittelwerk, because he was a relative prisoner in his home, due to experimental medical treatments (not elaborated, but appear to involve life extension). The big revelation given at the end is that Alvar Hanso is Rachel’s real father.

    Other revelations given along the way that are connected to Lost:
    • The Black Rock was a slave ship from the 1800s that was owned by Magnus Hanso, Alvar’s grandfather, a Danish trader. It was supposedly shipwrecked and never heard from again.
    • The Apollo Candy Company is owned by The Hanso Foundation. Some of the experimental ingredients in their products include psychotropic and viral-spreading substances.
    • Gary Troup wrote not only Bad Twin, but also a non-fiction book on the Valenzetti Equation; however, all the copies were bought up by THF to keep the equation secret. Troup was flying with his financee, Cindy Chandler, the flight attendent on Flight 815 (and Lost tail section survivor) when the plane crashed. He is presumed dead.
    • The Hanso Foundation has close ties to Widmore Corporation (in the U.K.) and Paik Heavy Industries (in Korea). The latter was contracted to build THF a huge quarantined hospital ship called the Helgus Antonius.
    • There are two new DHARMA films that are shown. One is called “Psychology Testing Issues 1980″, and is simply a rapid fire sequence of 115 images, some of which are repetitive themes from Lost (boars, medication vials, etc.). View that one HERE. The other was the hugely revealing film we are calling the “Sri Lanka video”, which Rachel shot, and which is led to many of the revelations discussed above. You can view that one HERE. Both this and the other film have new DHARMA logos.

    No problem, Jen. It was confusing enough for those of us who followed it daily, that I think this helps the people who just want to know the bottom line.

    Thumbs up Thank you for this!

    I started to play the game and then my mother died suddenly. I just couldn't get back into it. Now, I am starting to enjoy things more and got very excited by the return of the show. It suddenly dawned on me that I had forgotten about the Lost Experience and I wondered what ever happened to it/if it was still going on. This was SUCH a help to find. I really appreciate you posting it. Thank you!

    Default rachel blake is juliet's sisteri wish you knew what i was talki

    juliet's sister's name is rachel and rachel blake is angry with the hansofoundation and alvar hanso. we know now that ben won't let juliet leave the island. thus why rachel blake (juliet's sister) is so angry, she wants her sister back. the "sickness" the sister had is probably the same infection that the dharma initiative and stuff was using (maybe, that oculd be a stretch) and we know mittelwerk (sp?) is angry with alvar hanso and what not and thats probably why ben isn't allowed to let juliet leave...if this is already posted somewhere, sorry, but id love peoples thoughts
