Jacob shows Richard a bottle of wine, and explains that the island is the cork that stops the evil(in this case, the wine in the bottle) from escaping. That's what he meant.

Cork was only mentioned once in the whooooole series. So if im in a rush, and can't explain to dave what the island is. I should be able to quickly reply "cork" without my boss seeing. And Dabis should understand. You know why....crok is such an abstract word, and could only mean 1 thing when your using it in refrence to lost.
I think if you really wanna get the show just watch it, Its gone way beyond where it started. I've just watched previews for it over time and I'm just trying to figure out "Ok, they were on the island, they were lost. They got off the island, and there still lost? They go back to the island...ok, WTF?". So I'm not gonna do the dam research.
What, I think that confused people more, can you explain more about this "light" ?
Its the source of everything.
And there are 'bad' people who want to get to the light, but the protectors job is to protect it. Obviously.
If the bad people get to the light they could put it out, which would destroy the whole universe.
Hence the protector.
