I fully support this theory. It simplifies a lot of particle interactions to realize that a positron is an electron coming backward in time. It explains why we see fragments suddenly appear out of nowhere and then converge to form a positron. Now, we realize it is a positron coming back through time that collides with something and breaks up. We are seeing the fragmentation sequence in reverse.

It also explains some weird interactions where two particles appear out of nothing and then disappear, existing just long enough to make some interaction work. Now we realize that the particle going forward in time collided with something, got bounced back in time for a few seconds, and then bounced forward through time again. For the overlap period, we see "extra" particles where the same particle exists in different locations at the same time.

forward through time------>

partical ---------------------------------->(bounce)

One partical in. Three particles bounce around. One partical out.
