Does anyone remember when Jack and everyone got to the first cave, there were ancient bodies there? Anyway, did anyone see that he removed a pouch containing a white and black stone? What is it used for?

Maybe the Black Rock Crew are the Others...

I don't understand why this is here. This has never been unanswered - they heard the numbers because they were being broadcast by the transmitter on the island. If the question means "why" on a more philosophical level, then surely you could say that about anyway in the show.
