LOST! An ABC Studios Tele-vision Production

The DHARMA ( Department of Heuristics And Research on Material Applications ) Initiative was a scientific research project that had a large presence on a remote South Pacific island from the 1970s and until the early 1990s. The project logo comprises variations of an octagonal design derived from the Taoist Ba Gua.

The Initiative's general goal was to manipulate scientific laws in order to change any of the six factors of the Valenzetti Equation, a sequence that was believed to have some connection to the date marking the end of humanity.

According to various orientation films, the Initiative was founded in 1970 by Gerald and Karen
DeGroot, two doctoral candidates at the University of Michigan. It was financially backed by Danish industrialist and munitions magnate Alvar Hanso and his Hanso Foundation. The alleged purpose of the Initiative, according to the Swan Orientation film, was to create "a large-scale communal research compound where scientists and free-thinkers from around the globe could pursue research in meteorology, psychology, parapsychology, zoology, electromagnetism, and utopian social-[inaudible]."

However, since The Lamp Post Station was built in the 1960s, the date of 1970 given by Pierre Chang AKA Marvin Candle in the orientation films may be incorrect.

The Hanso Foundation ended further funding to the Initiative in 1987. The DHARMA Initiative largely ended after the Purge, an event that saw the death of almost all of its members on the Island at the hands of the Hostiles, in either 1988 or 1992.

I understand that a temporal causality loop is basically harmless, insofar as it doesn't disrupt the space/time continuum.
