INSIGHTS ARE TIME-TRAVELLING THOUGHTS FROM OUR FUTURE MORE-INTEGRATED SELVES

If I’m Julius Caesar’s Dad and I am attracted to a girl, my attraction is the future Roman Dictator stirring to existence. If I’m Marcel Proust and I notice that the taste of a cookie brings my past rushing back into my consciousness, that mental event is my future book “In Search of Lost Time” groping towards existence. In both of these cases we have reverse causality — a future event is causing something in the present. It’s weird, but that’s the way it is.
