Physicists provide support for retrocausal quantum theory, in which the future influences the past
“Recently some physicists have been looking into this idea, called ‘retrocausality,’ because it can potentially resolve some long-standing puzzles in quantum physics.“

The Quantum Mechanics of Fate
“Physicists as renowned as John Wheeler, Richard Feynman, Dennis Sciama, and Yakir Aharonov have speculated that causality is a two-headed arrow and the future might influence the past.”

Scientists Finally Prove Strange Quantum Physics Idea Einstein Hated
“That concept is also known as entanglement, and it’s what allows particles that have once interacted to share a connection regardless of the separation between them.”
