The numbers themselves have been referred to numerous times as a curse, or at least as being cursed (Hurley’s curse). DHARMA has realized that the equation was set into motion at the time of Adam and Eve’s failure, which set death into motion, and CURSED all of mankind to come. God cursed Adam with toil, Eve in CHILDBIRTH (birthing problems) the serpent, and creation itself. All of it was cursed…doomed to death…doomed to one day come to destroy itself. That curse began the equation as revealed by Valenzetti.
Not only that, but there are exactly 108 words in that theory.
(109 if you add "stupid")
