With Lost season 3 four weeks away I've stumbled across an orientation file from Alvar Hanso on YouTube that only got added a couple of days ago. It explains a little bit more about the numbers and there significance in the whole project. It also ends with someone spying (think Blair Witch) in on what seems to be the scientists initiations to the project. I don't want to put a spoiler here but one of the scientist sitting down raises an interesting question!!
YouTube has got quite a big section on Hanso if you've got some free time.
