The recent episode "Follow the Leader" brought up an interesting paradox that I can't explain and was wondering what everyone else thought about it.

When Ben turned the wheel, the Island started moving through time. Remember, the Oceanic Six saw the Island disappear in front of their very eyes. The Others however, did not move through time. In "Follow the Leader" we saw their camp and Richard indicated that it had been three years (for them at least) since Ben turned the wheel and John Locke disappeared.

So how is it possible that the island could disappear from the Oceanic Six and start moving through time, and yet the Others' experience the Island is that it never moved? In other words, when the Island disappeared in 2004, how is it possible that the Others experienced a normal time line during the next three years?
