Long time reader, first time poster and I'm not sure if this has been discussed before. We know from Hawking that the island is always moving. So, there are only a couple of possible scenarios that would allow the losties to move through time while staying in the exact same spot on the island. 1. While the island is always moving, each of the time flashes send the losties to a historical period in which the island has occupied the same exact geographical position. 2. The time flashes create a worm hole to transport the losties to the exact same spot on the island in a different geographical location. 3. It was a simple oversight and we should enjoy the time travel without thinking of the geographical travel.
