During the Global Blackout, most people experienced a "flash forward", a vision of their whereabouts for two minutes and seventeen seconds on April 29, 2010. Even the most skeptical people on the planet believe that these visions contain a true picture of the future. ("Black Swan") Their cause is being investigated by the Mosaic Investigation. The FBI Field Office in Los Angeles launched a website known as the Mosaic Collective in order to aid in their investigation and create a bigger picture of the events on April 29, 2010. ("No More Good Days")

Most reported visions have taken place in real-time, however there are some people such as Agent Mark Benford who experienced only fleeting, impressionistic images. ("Gimme Some Truth") There are also people who blacked out, but had no flash whatsoever, such as Agent Demetri Noh and Sheriff Keegan. As far as the Mosaic Investigation knows, this is because the individual has died prior to April 29th. ("White to Play") Four individuals (Simon Campos, D. Gibbons, Flosso and Victor) are known not to have had any blackouts at all. ("Revelation Zero, Part 2")

Since the blackout, people have started using these flashes to dictate how they live their lives instead of using logic and reason to figure things out. The primary method of investigation used by the FBI Field Office in LA has been using the Mosaic Investigation wall from the flash of Agent Benford. At Angeles Hospital, Dr. Bryce Varley used Edward Ned's flash to deduce that Ned had an undiagnosed case of Addison's Disease. ("Black Swan")

Mark Benford

Mark Benford

1x01 TheWall
Mark was in his FBI office, in a state of evident anxiety and frustration. He was pacing in front of a large bulletin board spanning one wall of the office, covered with notes and objects relating to his investigation of the blackout. Taking a long drink from a flask of some alcoholic beverage, he wrote a note reading "Who else knows?", underlined, on a page from a daily calendar, which displayed a date of April 29, 2010. He was wearing a handmade friendship bracelet.
He then saw two dark figures carrying weapons with laser sights, approaching the office. He readied his own weapon as they drew closer. They were wearing plastic Halloween masks that covered their entire heads. One had a tattoo with three stars on his left forearm, a tattoo which was diagrammed among the notes on the bulletin board. The flashforward ended before any violence got started. ("No More Good Days")

Mark's flash was experienced in impressionistic images most likely due to his intoxication. ("Gimme Some Truth") He was on the phone with Lloyd Simcoe, rudely refusing Lloyd's request for more time. He then mentions that they don't have time because there is going to be another blackout. ("Revelation Zero, Part 1")

Staring into the fireplace, Lloyd looked up towards Olivia, though the flash ended before he could see her face.

("Scary Monsters and Super Creeps") Lloyd tells Simon that he received a text message containing some formula from him during his flash.
