Okay, I came up with this great idea to intuitively understand retrocausality which is implicated in the delayed choice quantum eraser experiment.
Alice and Bob have decided to do an experiment.
If Alice wins at rock paper scissors, she will get the switch on, just like the first picture so idler photons will enter detectors A or B. This will affect signal photons in the past so they make a single pile pattern in the past.
If Bob wins at rock paper scissors, he will get the switch off, just like the second picture so idler photons will enter detectors C or D. This will affect signal photons in the past so they make an interference pattern in the past.
(The game of rock paper scissors only happens after the pattern is made)
I know that you cannot "know" whether the signal photons made a single pile pattern or an interference pattern and you can know only after the idler photons are detected.
So, whether Alice wins or Bob wins is encoded in the patterns made by the signal photons in the past, which obviously seems like retrocausality in action and the future is "already there", though you can't recover any meaningful data until idlers are detected.
How should I interpret this?
