Why Others aren't jumping as well

  • Before Ben turned the wheel the Others were headed to the Temple. Ben used the mirror to communicate with Richard and say something along the lines of "moving the Island. You know what to do." Then the Others do "something" (have no idea! drink some temple juice or something?) that makes them safe from any time issues that might happen when Ben turns the wheel. Everyone else (Sawyer and Juliet, the rest of the survivors, Daniel, Miles, Charlotte, and Locke etc.) did not do this so they are susceptible to the time jumps. This is why they (especially Juliet even though she is an Other) move through time and the Others don't.
  • They could have been in the temple throughout the duration of the time flashes, perhaps the temple has magic properties, I mean, this is Lost. Why not? And most likely after the first time jump, people in the period before the time jump, who were still on the Island AFTER it occured (aka the others in the Temple) didn't suffer anymore jumps.
