Can we please revive this thread with better references: My source for the Through The Wormhole Episodes is Wikipedia: Season 6 No. 2 : Can Time Go Backwards. There is a Youtube link: I was asking: "In Through the Wormhole Episode no.2 of the 6th series named Can Time Go Backwards (it starts in the 6th minute what I am referring to), it is claimed by a university professor that it may be possible (especially by alien beings) to perceive and experience the passing of time not right now but minutes or hours afterwards, or even before now as we speak. And he illustrates this notion in a hockey game. Is this true, because I find tremendous logical difficulties in believing this?" My best guess to what he means is : as we can watch through a telescope events which happened a long time ago to take place right now before our eyes because of the limited speed of light by a similar reasoning (what?) maybe we can perceive future events as well because the whole space-time fabric is predetermined. Thank you.
