It was a random thought that popped in to my head. At any given intant, you have no proof that you actually experienced the previous instant. All you can say for sure is that your present state is such that you know what happened the previous instant.

So if you were psychic and amnesiatic, your only knowledge of the other state would be of the state you're *about* to be in. If time moved backwards on top of everything else, then it all makes sense in a warped kind of way.

Of course, working with a set of physics that starts with "Entropy Decreases" would be kind of freaky.
