I was thinking.. What if Richard Alpert was conceived and born on the Island. We all know he is extremly old leaving him with some sort of age factor. That part of the properties of the island would be being able to live for an extremely long time(among other things we may learn) well what if that would be a reasoning behind all the test done on pregnant women on the island. Maybe all the original inhabitants of the island died out...except for richard.
