FlashForward: I Think I Know Why The Black Out Happened!

Posted in Television Shows by MG on October 2, 2009



After watching the second episode of the new television show “FlashForward”, a theory started forming in my mind as to the reasons for this mysterious black out. I know, I know, it’s too early to try and predict anything without making a complete fool out of yourself, but I thought I’d give it a try.

I thought that perhaps this isn’t the only time the “blackouts” take place. As we follow along, they will occur more often, with each one progressively deeper. There seems to be a group of people who are either coordinating, causing, or simply observing this phenomenon. If we assume a group of people is somehow responsible for the blackouts, it begs the question of, “what’s their purpose?”. I think, assuming a group of people is responsible for this, that their purpose is to correct the human course to self-destruction. Their ultimate goal is to “FlashForward” our minds two, perhaps three hundred years into the future, to show us that a cataclysm is inevitable unless we change our future.

I may be way off base with this one, but at least I tried, right? Please let me know what you think? Or if you have some different theory.

    I think the theory is not bad, even if it’s really early to think about it. What graduations do you have, you seem to know a lot of physics and stuff…

    You just a reader man =P And I hope when can talk about the series as it goes along, I’m enjoying it a lot, and seems that you too 😄

    Now, I think that trying to save the world may not really be the little group main’s purpose. Maybe it can be, but looks a bit too altruistic for the “villains” of the series… Unless! We consider the Red Panda’s logo: Better Tomorrow, since we don’t exactly know what are they up to and if they do or not havea link with that Blue Hand thing.

    We have lots of questions, hope the answers start to pop out soon ^-^

      Thank you Leonardo, I also hope we can discuss the show as it progresses and becomes more interesting. I certainly think that we will only have more questions as the show goes on, if we are able to answer everything right now, it wouldn’t make for much of a series.

      I agree, saving the world seems a bit altruistic for the villains, it’s one of many theories. You are welcome to contribute your own thoughts, trying to crack the mystery is certainly a group effort in which we all should participate and to which we all should contribute.

      Thanks again for your comments.

  2. […] guess it seems like my earlier prediction might still hold water. I just cannot associate  Simon (Charlie) with a terrorist, or a villain […]

    Is anyone finding the hidden “easter eggs” in each episode like LOST? If so, what are you discovering?

    Great Theory!!!!

    Im going to copy and paste what I wrote on another site……… My Questionable theory does correlate with others that I have seen so I must have some sort of correct analysis’s…..

    To speak of the significance of 2:17 also being from that particular verse in the bible and what is actually said: God Said, ‘that I will pour out my Spirit on all people, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy, and your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams. And I can agree with the relation with the results of the blackout towards specific characters in the show.
    Also we see that 2min 37 seconds as 137 seconds and the significance of the number 137 in the Kabbalah code, which is equal to the combined value of the words chochmah, “wisdom,” (73) and nevuah, “prophecy,” (64).
    If you were to research on the significance of 137 in relation to this code then it explains how physicists can use this dimensionless structure in number to make accurate predictions, and Kabballah seeks to channel divine light through the to the denser areas of thought.
    I was quite intrigued when I found this out and I can easily relate to divine thought. My research only helped me clarify what I was thinking – to know the names and processes to what I already knew in fractions.
    Now, let me try and explain my possibly objective theory of how this blackout was caused and why 2:17 seconds (137) has is significance.
    Firstly, a lot of biblical scriptures, as well as other religions are personifications of the world’s natural characteristics and physical law (anyone watched any of the zeitgeist movies?’. A lot of these numbers and calculations were hidden in stories, parables and riddles for the most enlightened to decode, overcome and see it in its original form – it’s source of influence and seeing beyond the distraction.
    Numbers have been used to help to measure these characteristics and atomic structures and over the years, scientists have developed understandings and have tried to re-create or harness these natural characteristics. They have worked out that the earth is like one giant, continuous equation of atomic movements and development, and will continue to function this way with or without human intervention. Scientists have developed ways to manipulate or ‘mimic’ a natural atomic formation but not to the perfection of nature itself. They cannot create an atom or anything like it as firstly they are in need of ‘existing’ material to perform such thing. Why so you think a scientific experiment can easily go wrong in comparison to natural formation and equation? Yes scientists and physicists have found that the numbers are the closest thing to help measure these natural laws, but as nature’s actions being so infinitive, it is hard to keep up and get something to be as accurate as possible to match up to nature’s perfections. Cloning is another example of this, taking years of trial and error to get to the closest possible to what is naturally achieved. Trying to recreate a big bang by making atoms travel at a near to light speed and collide –obviously it’s a scary issue, and can our resources we have today harness such event if they were to re-create it fully, at the EXACT same speed of light? The people performing these experiments do live in fear as they cannot match up to the infinitive behaviour of natural law.
    The code of kabbalah was used in this film due the non-dimensional 137 and this would possibly be the portal used as part of the experiment to make predictions through thought.
    I believe that the experiment was along the lines of Einstein’s theory of the bending of light. And to dwell on my divine thought, I can understand the relation to how light it magnified through binoculars and we can physically ‘foresee’ things before the naked eye will visualise.
    I believe that the experiment had amplified the speed of light and I cannot believe that it was physical time travel as our bodies being exposed to such speeds of travel will kill us as our structures are clearly not designed to survive such activity. However, us humans have the ability to see without our eyes being physically open, our thoughts and visions happen a lot faster than the time we are physically travelling in. Our thought processes travel at amazing speeds. These things are part answers to why our dreams seem to cover hours or events, over a few minutes, predominantly during the R.E.M stage of sleep.
    The experiment in flash-forward went wrong, causing chaos in the physical world as the 137 structure had cancelled out human physical activity as the enormous power of the amplified light through the mind had prevented the brain activity from its subconscious everyday abilities – like being hypnotized or put into a trance-like state.
    Humans were exposed to this frequency and each second of 137 was used to generate this dimensionless structure and multiply this light amplification to see into light distance six months ahead, which helped to promote the most accurate predictions with the motive of people having the ability to co-ordinate their future if their vision had resulted in a bad product in relation to their current factors.

    I can’t explain why certain people were still walking around unaffected by the blackout, but I believe it has something to do with the rings I saw in one of the episodes being returned to some guy and the fact that the guy seen in the stadium was wearing one of them.
    I watched the episode on Monday 30th November to see that Simon was being questioned by the FBI about an instrument used as part of the experiment and there were 5 of them placed in pentagonal formation. He questioned how they got hold of that picture, assuming that it was an advanced decode of image through numbers, but the FBI revealed that it was an actual picture taken in 1999.
    So there has been a chain of flash forwards before for someone to discover Simon’s invention? Well if that was the case then the invention must have already existed to do so. The experimental machine may have generated light to travel in both directions to emit reverse time travel for someone to have the vision of Simon producing this invention, therefore being produced at an earlier time and was kept hidden so when he designed such thing, he could easily be held responsible and then believe it will not happen again, when there is an exact duplicate of the instrument. This concludes now to whether it was planned or an experimental ‘cock-up’. Unless I can be convinced that people were actually physically travelling through time, which would be too much of an easy answer to the mystery based on the complexity of the show…… But who knows, it could be a lot more simple than we think and the audience may have been stripped of their objective way of thinking due to the promotion of empathising with the characters in the story…..

    THANKYOU!!!! I have been trying to think of a reason, any reason for having a blackout, this theory is great, why it could possible be anyone’s aim to make the world see the future has been playing on my mind for like 3 years now!! THANKYOU!!!
