its an island, it doesnt need a purpose
I think that the whole deal was that the island stuff happened, but the alterverse was actually purgatory. My friend thinks that they died in the original plane crash and it was all purgatory. What really helped me form my opinion was Christian's speech to Jack near the end. He said something like "The time you guys spent together was the most important time in your lives. You made this place [the alterverse] so you could find each other." (Sorry. I know I am mauling that quote like an angry bear, but you get the point.) Also, Ben said to Hurley, "You were a great number one." and Hurley agreed that Ben was a great number two, which makes me think that purgatory/alterverse stuff was not happening at the same time, but way later in the future. Like they had all lived their lives, long or short, and ended up in purgatory together.You have to keep in mind that the writers wanted this to be a talked about ending. There is supposed to be a little controversy over what actually happened. You need to keep in mind that the above is only my opinion.Hope that helps a little!
