The IslandThis is a featured page

Athasius Kirchner map of Atlantis late 1600sTaken from Yahoo!.au Lost TV Series Secret Clues, written with information up to and including "... And Found":

"The hatch that the survivors discovered has the codename Swan and that it is the third of six. The hide-out the Tailies have found featured a logo nearly identical to that of the Swan. While still bearing all the Dharma Initiative markings, instead of a swan, the logo is skewered by an arrow.

"The theories of what might actually be taking place on the island just went mythical – mythically Greek, to be exact.

Firstly, Apollo
[as in the candy bars seen in The Hatch] was the name used by the ancient Greeks to describe a cluster of stars seen in the northern hemisphere, made up of six constellations.

Cygnus – The Swan
Sagita – The Arrow
Orion – The Hunter
Crater – The Goblet
Corvus – The Crow
Ophiuchus – The Serpent Handler

The naming of the chocolate could be seen as just a sneaky way to inform viewers where the hatches got their codenames. But a bit of study into the Greek god Apollo’s story and the virtues he represented reveals a lot of themes running parallel with those of Lost!"

For more information, check out the rest of this article in its original posting at Yahoo!.au's Lost TV Series Secret Clues.

While two of these correspond to names of hatches on the island, The Pearl, The Hydra, and The Staff are not part of the Apollo constellation. All do, however, have other connections with Greek mythology.

How The Island Is Situated

To get your bearings as to where everyone is on the Island, I submit:

In the episode "The Glass Ballerina" Sayid examines a map of the Island:

Notice where the Others stay in relation to the Survivors. The Others home is due North from the Suvivors. This puts them on the West side of the Island.
In the photo below you can see the Survivors crash site is due South from the Others homes.
Others' Home
It appears that they are in a crater.

Linking Those Pesky Numbers to The Island

In Windows alt codes.... alt + 4 8 15 16 23 42 = µ (also known as "Mu")
Mu (uppercase Μ, lowercase μ) is the 12th letter of the Greek alphabet, and the symbol is representative of magnetic permeability (a possible connection to the magnetic properties of the hatch and the Island in general). Also, anything followed by 15 16 23 42 equals Mu (µ) in Windows alt codes....

History of the Lost Civilization of Mu (Lemuria)

Mu (aka Lemuria), is also the name of a lost island civilization that existed 78,000 years ago in the South Pacific, located somewhere in the Pacific Ring of Fire. The ancient civilization lasted many thousands of years, populated by 64 million people, and was eventually sunk by large earthquakes and tsunamis (the catastrophic December 26, 2004 tsunami happened in the same place where Mu/Lemuria is thought to have existed). It is theorized that the Mu civilization was well-advanced beyond our current civilization and may well have been populated by aliens, as dicussed at length by James Churchward in his series of five books written in the 1920's and 30's. Is this the Island of our Lostaways? Learn more about Mu/Lemuria here and here.

Many claim that proof of this ancient civilization exists in the enormous statues that were discovered underwater in the Ring of Fire area...
