    you guys said that hurley still might have gotten the number in the alternate reality where the island is underwater...
    he wouldnt have...because the reason why the numbers was used in the first place was the code for the swan hatch..so thats why the recording was made in the first place..with out the island being what it is..there is no need for the swan hatch..because they never hit the magnetic pocket..just letting you guys know, die hard lostie here so any other people want to have convos..hit me up lmao

    The numbers have been significant in more than just the hatch.

    yeah but hes saying that the only reason the numbers were significant, was because of the hatch. but im thinking its that they are supposed to be some ancient set of numbers and that was just a random coincidence of them being the serial code of the hatch. like if the island has some 1 million year old WMD created by some alien race that was on earth a long time ago, those numbers would be the password or something. but whatever that my thought and i think it would be a big change up in the plot if thats what happens, but it probably won't and iv'e just been up way to long.

    Check out the article on Lostpedia, the numbers are supposed to go along with the Valenzetti Equation which is supposed to predict the end of humanity, I think. The numbers were heard by the crazy guy at the mental institution with Hurley. He heard the numbers in the Navy while picking up the signal out at sea. Also, Rousseau found that the numbers were being transmitted at the radio tower on the island, which she then changed to transmit the distress signal. That signal then led the survivors to Rousseau and the mystery of the hatch and so on and so forth.

    The numbers originated from the Valenzetti Equation. He was brought on to the Dharma Initiative as it was beginning to try and prevent the end of humanity, which the numbers predicted. They existed outside of the island, and course correction could have easily resulted in Hurley hearing them through another source.
    Still, there is a possibility he won with different numbers. We just won't know until he has a centric episode.

    Another possibility is that Hurley was lying about being lucky. Who knows how the non-crash reality has gone for them.

    Apparently, Sam Toomey (the one who heard the numbers) heard them when he was stationed in the Pacific in 1988. The same year, Danielle Rousseau and her team followed the transmission of the Numbers and washed up on the Island. Apparently, The DHARMA Initiative constructed the Radio Tower in the early 70's and began using it to transmit the numbers (The answer of the Valenzetti equation).

    Now, if the Island was indeed destroyed in 1977 by Juliet setting off 'Jughead', it is possible that someone else heard the numbers between when the station was built and when it was destroyed and eventually Hurley knew about them, just in a more roundabout way than the main Timeline.

    Of course, it still remains to be seen if the bomb did cause the Island to sink, so there may be some possibility that no one has considered yet.
