How come Richard Alpert is not aging? And how come Widmore and Linus does not have this ability?


After the 1st three answers I need to note that Widmore and Alpert are not original inhabitants of the island. They were soldiers at American base in fifties. Somehow it turned out that Alpert gained the ability to keep his age fixed at, say, thirtyfive. It must hane something to do with his relationship with Jacob. The bottom line is, alpert and widmore were equal in fifties.

    Richard Alpert has been on the island for a reaaaaaally long time. Oh and JJ Abrams has promised to answer all of our questions by the time Lost finishes. So it seems like we are really in the dark now, but answers to all of our questions will be answered before the show ends.

    Because Richard Alpert is one of the original inhabitants of the island, and knows a lot more about it and what it can do than anyone else. Widmore and Linus came to the island a lot later with the Dharma Initiative and don't know as much about the island.

    I am not much of a lost afficiendo, but I believe that Widmore was not

    part of the Dharma initiative, but he has always been with the "Others".

    He was one of the soldiers from the 50's that had Sawyer at gunpoint.
