Unstuck in Time

My thoughts on time travel in Lost here
It's interesting that the characters on the island - the Losties, at least - move back and forth through time but the Others don't. Richard Alpert and Ethan appeared in various times but were their current selves for that time period. Ethan, of course, being dead in the present and who knows what or when Alpert is. It almost seems like the island is staying put but the Losties are the ones moving around (what with the topography and clutter constantly rearranging themselves). What makes the Others different from the Losties? And does this apply to the crash survivors who now live with the Others (Cindy, the kids)?
