I worked on this problem a few years ago and
remembered an important detail of how I applied
relalivity to explain the quantum world.
You take a powerful stationary laser light source
that diverges slightly and fire it at a stationary
observer 30,000,000 kilometers away. Then you have
a moving an observer travelling 80% of c that is
somewhere between the laser light source and the
stationary observer,when the laser is fired,travelling in a straight line
towards the stationary observer.The moving
observer is positioned so he arives next
the stationary observer when the laser light
source strikes the moving observer from
the moving observer's eyes.From the stationary
observer's eyes at the same instance the light
has yet to strike him.The key here is that the
moving observer will see the light strike the
the stationary observer at this instance even
though in the stationary observers eyes it has
yet to strike him.Now say the stationary observer
moves out of the path of light after the
moving observer passes him by, the light will
miss the stationary observer in his eyes, yet in
eyes of the moving obsever the light struck
the stationary observer.Which led me to draw this
conclusion if the stationary obsever remained
stationary then the moving obsever would have
seen his future,if the stationary observer moved
out of the path of light,then the moving observer
would have seen a future possibility that did not happen.

Your conclusion is fallacious, for a start you've ignored the failure of simultaneity at distance, an instant is meanigless it's only useful to talk about events that happen at certain locations in space-time.
