Is The Future Affecting The Present?
The more I think about it the more I begin to understand that our future is influencing our present time. It is clear that from the laws of quantum mechanics that this is and can be the case as is the case with the latest version of the double slit experiment and as is the case with how Einsteins special relativity affects spacetime.
There are too many mathematical similarities that go into explaining this universe, I wish I knew mathematics better to more effectively describe the mental image I have developed of this reality.
Individual perception is part of the picture in realising a single theory or equation to accurately describe this, next there is the Fibonacci (I think that’s how its spelt) sequence which obviously is part of the equation used in the development of particular emergent properties of the universe and nature. Next part of the equation is chaos theory followed by superposition and the last part of the equation is a feedback loop.
When I consider such things I am drawn to a conclusion that the entire universe is in a kind of feedback loop accelerating to the coming technological singularity. I believe its very possible we have already passed through the technological singularity at some point in the real world and the result was the creation of an entity that we entrusted with our protection and preservation and that of all life, this however backfired and as a result it permeated reality itself (Or just began to rewrite all matter) while creating the universe in which we now find ourselves.
I believe right now that even if all mankind agreed to do so we couldn’t turn off all electrical technology across the globe.
Just as we try to understand the very fabric of the cosmos and that of the quantum world and ponder over time we understand that observation is part of the mechanism to which we can measure what is real to us, yet the act of observation is part of the problem. The very act of measurement is proven to affect both time and matter itself leading me to believe that we actually create both, by drawing this conclusion I think we are all tied to a singular point being the actual time we created this being.
It actually makes sense that the past and present are kind of being broadcast from the future as it explains quite a lot really.

I found this article today on Science Alert which explains the science better than I can, plus they have likely done more research on the topic.
One of the weirder aspects of quantum mechanics could be explained by an equally weird idea – that causation can run backwards in time as well as forwards.
What Einstein called “spooky” action at a distance could theoretically be evidence of retrocausality, which is the particle equivalent of you getting a stomach ache today thanks to tomorrow’s bad lunch.
A pair of physicists from the US and Canada took a closer look at some basic assumptions in quantum theory and decided unless we discovered time necessarily ran one way, measurements made to a particle could echo back in time as well as forward.
We all know quantum mechanics is weird. And part of that weirdness comes down to the fact that at a fundamental level, particles don’t act like solid billiard balls rolling down a table, but rather like a blurry cloud of possibilities shifting around the room.
This blurry cloud comes into sharp focus when we try to measure particles, meaning we can only ever see a white ball hitting a black one into the corner pocket, and never countless white balls hitting black balls into every pocket.
There is an argument among physicists over whether that cloud of maybes represents something real, or if it’s just a convenient representation.
A physicist by the name of Huw Price claimed back in 2012 that if the strange probabilities behind quantum states reflect something real, and if nothing restricts time to one direction, the black ball in that cloud of maybes could theoretically roll out of the pocket and knock the white ball.
“Critics object that there is complete time-symmetry in classical physics, and yet no apparent retrocausality. Why should the quantum world be any different?” Price wrote, paraphrasing the thoughts of most physicists.
Matthew S. Leifer from Chapman University in California and Matthew F. Pusey from the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Ontario also wondered if the quantum world might be different when it comes to time.
The pair exchanged some of Price’s assumptions and applied their new model to something called Bell’s theorem, which is a big deal in this whole spooky action at a distance business.
John Stewart Bell said that the weird things that happen in quantum mechanics can’t ever be explained by actions taking place nearby. It’s as if nothing is causing the multitude of billiard balls to take such varied paths. At a fundamental level, the Universe is random.
But what about actions taking place somewhere else… or somewhen else? Can something far away influence that cloud without touching it, in a way that Einstein called “spooky”?
If two particles are connected in space at some point, measuring a property of one of them instantly sets the value for the other, no matter where in the Universe it has moved to.
This ‘entanglement’ has been tested over and over again in light of Bell’s theorem, plugging loopholes that might show they are really interacting on a local level in some way, in spite of what seems to be a distance.
As you might guess, the Universe still seems pretty spooky.
But if causality ran backwards, it would mean a particle could carry the action of its measurement back in time to when it was entangled, affecting its partner. No faster-than-light messages needed.
That’s the hypothesis Leifer and Pusey were going by.
“There is a small group of physicists and philosophers that think this idea is worth pursuing,” Leifer told Lisa Zyga at Phys.org.
By reformulating a few basic assumptions, the researchers developed a model based on Bell’s theorem where space was swapped for time. By their reckoning, unless we can show why time must always tick forward, we run into some contradictions.
Needless to say, the idea of retrocausality is a fringe idea.
“There is not, to my knowledge, a generally agreed upon interpretation of quantum theory that recovers the whole theory and exploits this idea. It is more of an idea for an interpretation at the moment, so I think that other physicists are rightly sceptical, and the onus is on us to flesh out the idea.”
Now keep in mind, this kind of backwards time travel isn’t the sort that would allow you to go back in time and consciously change the present, sorry to say. Future scientists also won’t be able to encode lottery numbers into entangled electrons and mail them back to their younger selves.
In any case, the idea of anything trickling backwards in time might not be an appealing one, but let’s face it, when it comes to phenomena like entanglement, nearly any explanation is going to sound downright insane.
This research was published in Proceedings of The Royal Society A.
Now if your still reading, imagine that all this is right and with the Advent of strong AI we will be able to measure time and the quantum world more accurately than ever before causing a ripple backwards in time that we can even notice today. I feel more like it’s created a feedback loop of some kind. I know this theory sounds kind of far out but I ask you this: If you make yourself completely still and think about the life you have lived does it seem 100% right? By that I mean doesn’t it seem as though you’ve been here before? Who knows maybe I am alone here but I don’t think so as even science has to contend with the possibility that the future affects the past!

The video below explains very well my reasoning behind the conclusion I am coming too that this reality is a construct of the virtual kind and I must say it’s very reassuring to see that I am not the only coming to this conclusion! It’s the emergence of this entity we are in the process of creating that is actually responsible for the construct in which we live! Imagine this for a second. It’s 30 years from now and we have just created artificial general intelligence which quickly develops into artificial super intelligence this entity will be so smart as to even know the future! It will be literally be able to predict the very probability of everyones life and that of all life, therefor we ourselves will likely know every possible outcome of every decision we make before we even make it! This is a problem for me because there is no longer any wonder of something new, there is no more artistic or creative ability possible which means the world will become completely mundane in every aspect! How or why do you continue? For me I see this point as an end to the program and so in other words the countdown is on!
Let me know what you think and I will continue to update this page as and when I find more evidence or resources that can help me explain my thoughts on this better, don’t forget to share this!
