What island inhabitants had the most insight into the mystical nature of the island?

It seems to me that the ancients of the island had the most insight. (Maybe not the best moral stance though) I mean, it seems like they built the wheel, smokie's chamber where Alex appears to ben... the statue (unless that was Jacob, him n Rich were alive long enough right?), etc. Smokie's chamber is intriguing because it suggests there were people who worshipped/obeyed it, despite the knowledge of its struggle w/ (good? represented by Taweret in the painting showing them face to face?) It gets me wondering whether Jacob is older than the ancient builders or has merely learned/harnessed the powers behind the mysticism. You never know who is in the know in this show anymore; after all, Hurley knew Jacob was dead before any of the idiot Others at the Temple like Dogen and Lennon. JFresh222 16:04, May 3, 2010 (UTC)
