4. The "Losties" are definitely traveling through time.
5. It took Charles Widmore 20 years to find the island.
6. Ben Linus is lying to someone (again).
7. And of course, time travel is most certainly involved in their plane crash, rescue and imminent return to the island.

That's quite a bit of officially confirmed info.
Apparently, many people also missed the connection between Faraday and Desmond. This happens in an episode entitled "The Constant". (If I may editorialize, it was one of the best LOST episodes to date.) Faraday's Constant becomes Desmond when Desmond visits him at Oxford.

That's why he isn't hypocritical when he tells Sawyer not to interact yet does as much two minutes later.

I didn't miss it. I thought that it was so clearly obvious that it didn't need mentioning. And I agree: That episode was amazing (and Fionnoula Flanagan was in this current episode as well as "The Constant").

But for those who may have missed it, thanks for the point!

At the end of last season didn't Desmond visit Faraday pre-island crash? Why didn't Desmond remember seeing Farraday when he was at the door?

That is simple. The Desmond at the door hadn't met Faraday yet. Thus, confusion ensued. However, notice that Desmond with Penny (in the present) immediately recognizes it for what it is: a memory rather than a dream. He remembers meeting Faraday. His past self doesn't because it hadn't happened. You can't change the past but you can change the future, which Faraday emphasized repeatedly.

don't forget there's also a quick line where Des asks, "Don't I know you, Brother?" Or something like that. Perhaps that is a clue that he does sort of recognize Faraday.

But the Desmond at the door did meet Faraday. Didn't Desmond go to Oxford before he landed on the island?

And Desmond did recognize him. He has a line about it. Something like, "Don't I know you, brother?"
I think he mentioned something about Desmond being the only one able to change the future/past.

I have no idea why, perhaps what happened to him in the hatch when he hit the reset button.

You have misunderstood the emphasis Faraday placed throughout the episode. You cannot change the past. Desmond at the door was in the past. He would not have remembered. However, the Desmond with Penny, or the present Desmond, would remember it. And as he says, it was not a dream but a memory.

Remember that it was the present Desmond that went to Oxford, not the one living in the hatch.

If I am incorrect, someone please jump in.

It is because of "The Constant" - an episode last season. Desmond is Faraday's Constant.

He says that the rules don't apply to Desmond because he's special. I have a feeling it has more to do with the fail-safe key and the hatch than it does with being anyone's constant. But who know? I'm sure the answers will come soon enough.

I believe the fail-safe key in the hatch merely keeps the island invisible to the outside world.

could be.

but that's sort of a different point. I'm just thinking that the reason Des is "special" and the "rules don't apply" to him is because of the amount of electromagnetism he was exposed to when he turned the key.

If Charlie or Jack or Hurley or Kelvin had turned the key instead of Des, then they would be the ones living outside the rules of time travel. That's all.

I don't think what makes Des special is his being Faraday's constant. I think as the show develops we'll see other people who are each other's constants (perhaps Ben and Charles are constants?) and they won't be living outside the "rules." Does that make sense?

Like I said, I could be waaaay off. I'm jus guessing here. Just the way I'm seeing things right now. Could change next episode with more/new information

Nope. This is entirely related to "The Constant."

Doubtful, but it is still a possibility. One that I don't think we'll ever know, though.

It was already speculated that Ben and Charles are Constants. This was somewhat confirmed when they didn't kill each other when they met. It's possible that what you posit is true. I just don't see it in what's been revealed thus far.
