Greetings fellow lostaholics. Another day and here is another product of over analyzed lost storyline: vile vortices theory..
Let’s first see what they are.. Vile Vortices are 12 locations on the globe that have similar qualities to that of the Bermuda Triangle.. In fact, Bermuda Triangle is formed by these vortices..

Later on, further fortifying the theory, Soviets postulated that these 12 plates of natural anomaly make up 62 junctions between themselves, and each and every one of these junctions displayed anomalies. Furthermore, some of those junctions are the sites to prehistoric advanced civilizations.
The importance of this for Lost is, if you open up the map and observe the vortex locations, quoting from this thread,
“Some have mentioned that the vile vortices may be at work, and the
polar bear in Tunisia supports it. The idea is that people and things
can move into each of the different vortices and end up in the same
place. In terms of Lost, that means the island.
If you look at the map, you can see a vortex near Tunisia where a polar
bear may have gone through from the island. Plus, there is a vortex at
the north pole, so that may be why polar bears on on the island in the
Other vortices support this…the one east of Australia is probably
where the plane went down, and the one south of Florida is where
Juliette and Locke’s dad could have been taken to the island by
submarine. Plus, there is another in mid-Africa, where Yemi’s drug
plane may have gone through” and;
“The Black Rock headed west from Africa, if I’m not mistaken, and there’s a vortex there”
