You DO NOT see back in time. I think this type of language borders on PYSCHOBABBLE.
What you are doing is WITNESSING an EVENT that OCCURRED in the PAST.
IMAGINE a far-away planet, where a race of people live in TOTAL DARKNESS because they ran out of GASOLINE. This has caused SEVERE PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS with many of the ORGANISMS in the POPULATION, so YOUR SERVICES ARE URGENTLY NEEDED.
Thanks to the wonders of APPLES's iPHONE 14 (!!!), it has become possible to INSTANTLY TRANSPORT a VIDEO CAMERA connected to a GIANT LED screen to them with a SWIPE LEFT gesture.
After instantly getting the video camera, the organisms take a LIVE MOVIE of themselves and display it on the GIANT LED display. This occurs in REAL-TIME, immediately after you swiped to the left.
Here is where you have to do some MATH. After they display the picture on their new GIANT LED screen, the iPHOTONS emitted by the GIANT LED travel towards EARTH at 186,282 MILES every SECOND.
Lucky, the planet is only 16,094,764,800 miles away, so it takes exactly 24 hours to reach Earth. You have to WAIT. After a nice meal and some rest, exactly 24 hours later, the iPHOTONS emitted by the GIANT LED when you swiped left have finally reaches your RETINA.
This causes a CHEMICAL REACTION in your EYE in REAL-TIME that your BRAIN interprets as a TINY MOVIE. After about 5 minutes, the organisms being to play LIVE FOOTBALL. In the 37th minute, a TOUCHDOWN is scored.
You witness the touchdown in real-time; HOWEVER, the movie is a TIME-DELAY of the touchdown that occurred 24 hours ago, in REAL-TIME on their planet. You had to wait for the photons to get to your brain.
Now you have a 24 TIME-DELAYED MOVIE of another race. The lights are on so NO FURTHER ACTION IS REQUIRED, the SEVERE PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS are already GOING AWAY thanks to APPLE INCORPORATED! Another touchdown!!!
There is also a SIMILAR RACE that lives 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 miles away but you'll NEVER KNOW if they started playing FOOTBALL too. GOD HELP US if they decide to play SOCCER instead!
SAMSUNG OF KOREA is working on a FLUX CAPACITOR that will send a FANCIER GIANT LED to them MILLIONS OF YEARS AGO. I doubt it's possible, but it's KOREA, who knows?
Disruptions of the electromagnetic field permeating the vacuum of space? Simply SWIPE LEFT!!!
