Several years ago, New Scientist featured an article on a new theory by Stephen Hawking that involved the future having some effect or "backreaction" on the present.
As it would be very tedious and time consuming to root through several years of back issues to find it again, I was hoping someone might be able to provide a reference, or just put me on the right track.
I tried a search myself, but could find nothing on the ArXiv. I thought for a moment it might be http://arxiv.org/abs/astro-ph/0305562 ("Cosmology from the Top Down"); but although that is interesting, it doesn't match what I recall of the article.
Please note, I'm not interested in starting a discussion of the merits or otherwise of this theory, merely seeking a reference.
