But first my own observations…

The Sri-Lanka video was provided by Rachel Blake in 70 fragments from July 22nd to September 7th, 2006, which began at Comic-Con in San Diego, CA. Rachel wore a t-shirt with the URL printed on it and directed us to visit the site for more information. This was the beginning of the third phase of the LOST Experience and a massive worldwide hunt for glyphs and codes, which has now reached its conclusion.

The 70 video fragments when pieced together provide two distinct and separate videos. Part 1 is a 1975 Orientation Film narrated by Alvar Hanso, presumably from his office in Denmark and Part 2 is a speech by “Dr.” Thomas Werner Mittelwerk secretively being filmed by Rachel in Sri Lanka. The transcript of the video appears below in paragraph format for easier reading. Those wishing to examine the fragments, glyphs and codes more closely can find additional information at my Pictoglyph Fragment site.

The videos give us little in the form of new information.

Since the introduction of the Valenzetti Equation into the Experience many players have speculated that the numbers 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, and 42 were somehow connected to the Valenzetti Equation. This anti-climactic revelation by Alvar Hanso comes as no surprise. The definition of D.H.A.R.M.A. was revealed earlier in the Experience with the Simon-like game played on the computer monitor in Phase 1. And, I think most of us knew that there were secret underground facilities. What we would most like to know is, “What are they for? What is the research being done there? And why did they need survival training before being taken there?”

The Mittelwerk video gives us a trivial amount of new information. Mostly, that work on viruses has been adapted for his project and that the DHARMA Initiative failed. We have also learned that Rachel was caught in the act of filming the speech by Mittelwerk and then taken captive. Again, however, we are left with many more questions than answers.

For those who wish to speculate on the video I ask you to send your e-mails to:

Transcription of the Sri-Lanka Videos

PART 1 - Alvar Hanso 1975 Orientation Film:

I’m Alvar Hanso. If you are watching this film, you already know and have worked with Gerrold and Karen DeGroot, founders and masterminds of the DHARMA Initiative. By now, you also know there are many research goals for our joint venture. What you may not know is why we have assembled the Dharma Initiative, why we have assembled the brightest minds in the world and given them unlimited funds and access.

As with all you've already been told, you are bound by your honor and commitment to keep what you are about to hear a secret. In a few weeks, after your induction counseling and survival training, you and your collegues will be shipped to a top secret facility. The precise location of the facility is known only to myself, the DeGroots, the few high-ranking members of my organization. Why all the security, all the secrecy? The answer is simple. Your research is intended to do nothing less than save the world as we know it.

In 1962, only thirteen years ago, the world came to the brink of nuclear war. The United States and the Soviet Union almost fulfilled the promise of mutual assured destruction. A promise they continue to foster through a destructive Cold War. After the Cuban missile crisis, both nations decided to find a solution. The result was the Valenzetti Equation. Commissioned under the highest secrecy through the U.N. Security Council, the equation is the brainchild of the Italian mathematician, Enzo Valenzetti. It predicts the exact number of years and months before humanity extinguishes itself. Whether through nuclear fire, chemical and biological warfare, conventional warfare, pandemic, overpopulation…. Now, his results are chilling and attention must be paid.

Valenzetti gave numerical values to the core environmental and human factors of his equation, 4,8,15,16,23, and 42. Only by manipulating the environment by finding scientific solutions to all of our problems will we be able to change those core factors and give humanity a chance to survive. Although the equation has been buried by those who commissioned it. Don't panic. It's always been my belief that we ignore warnings at our own peril. And thus, the D.H.A.R.M.A. Initiative was born. "'D.H.A.R.M.A.' is an acronym for Department of Heuristics And Research on Material Applications." Screen display: DHARMA Department of Heuristics And Research on Materials Applications. It also stands for the one true way.” Screen display: DEPARTMENT OF HEURISTICS AND RESEARCH ON MATERIAL APPLICATIONS. Through your research, you will help...

We've constructed several stations on the island, underground laboratories with the facilities you'll need to do your research with the optimal expediency, and all of the support you will need, including regular medicine and food drops will be made in perpetuity. A radio transmitter has also been erected on the island. Broadcasting in a frequency and encryption known only to us. The transmitter will only broadcast the core numerical values of the Valenzetti Equation. When, through your research, you manage to change the numerical value of any one of these factors... When you have created through science the... [inaudible] You will know that the one true way has been found. That is the work to which you have committed yourselves. Change the core values of the Valenzetti Equation, and you will change the course of destiny. The fate of the human race is in your hands. Thank you and namaste.” Display: DHARMA (w/ logo) ©1975 THE HANSO

Part 2 - Thomas Mittelwerk speech:

We all know what happened. The DHARMA Initiative failed. And in spite of every effort of the Foundation, we are gripped in the tyranny of those six Numbers. We have tried to change those values by manipulating the environment in many, many ways. We have done our level best, and yet this inscrutable Equation keeps bringing us back to the Numbers. So now, we have to take radical action. And I just want to tell all of you that I trust you to do what is best. The villages of Philam(?) and Vitu Alami(?) have allowed us to test our vaccine on them. (Uncomfortable coughing from audience.) They think they're infected with a virus carried by local macaques and they believe we are bringing them the cure.

So when you go in, you have to keep up the story. You know it by heart. Don't waver. When the deaths begin, you must comfort everyone with compassion and empathy and the bodies of the dead must be brought to this station immediately for full genetic workup. We must make absoultely certain we are hitting precise genetic targets we have engineered into the virus. The optimum mortality rate is 30%. Our operatives at the VIK Institute have verified this figure… More or less people succumb, we have failed. We need not take any more lives than is absolutely necessary. Yes? Unidentified man, Tom, these are people, innocent human beings, and we're just going to... Mittlewerk interupts, If you knew with mathematical certainty that you could end all famine, war, and poverty, what would you do? Exactly! You'd find the best way to get it done… precisely … surgically, without allowing for any more suffering than is absolutely necessary. (Sigh) It is not fair that innocents have to die so that we can perfect this virus.
But I promise you, someone is going to help.

Interruption of light in Mittelwerk’s face.

Mittelwerk: Is there something... reflecting... in the back? Rachel: Oh, God! Mittelwerk: Somebody grab her! Unknown man: There she is!
Mittelwerk: We have an intruder! Unknown man: She's got a camera... Rachel: No, wait, get off me, get off me... wait... get off me... get off... it’s… Unknown man: Got her!
