What is really happening in the double-slit experiment, they say, and really wherever atomic particles are interacting with each other (that is to say, everywhere), is not that the two electrons are in two places at once. Instead, time is running both forward, from the electron leaving the wire, and backward, from its final location on the second screen. Where time meets, running backwards and forwards, determines which slit the electron chooses. The future is affecting the past, all the time, on the quantum leve
Similarly, modern quantum physics has demonstrated that light particles seem to know what lies ahead of them and will adjust their behavior accordingly, even though the future event hasn't occurred yet.
In one test, volunteers were shown a computer screen with the images of two curtains on it. Behind one curtain was a blank picture; behind the other was an erotically stimulating picture featuring sexual acts. The volunteers (who were warned not to take part if they found such material offensive) were told they had to try to predict which curtain hid the erotic image. In fact, both images were blank when the prediction was made. A second or two after the volunteer had selected a curtain, the computer assigned an erotic picture randomly to one or the other curtain, and the result was revealed.

we all know that rehearsing a set of words makes them easier to recall in the future, but what if the rehearsal occurs after the recall? In one of the studies, college students were given a list of words and after reading the list, were given a surprise recall test to see how many words they remembered. Next, a computer randomly selected some of the words on the list as practice words and the participants were asked to retype them several times. The results of the study showed that the students were better at recalling the words on the surprise recall test that they were later given, at random, to practice. According to Bem, practicing the words after the test somehow allowed the participants to "reach back in time to facilitate recall.

It's hard to wrap your head around it, because we are conditioned to think linearly, especially when time is concerned.

it makes no sense, maybe someone can try to convince me but it makes no sense.
maybe past events can predict future events?
edit to add
how can we predict something that already happened?edit on 13/1/2011 by RizeorDie because: (no reason given)
