Then again, some quantum physics experiments do show that at least some influences happen "backwards" in time.

The only logical conclusion would be that time _is_ symmetrical, influences going both ways. Cause-and-effect would be "reduced" to the weaker relationship of correlations, but then again, we haven't ever observed cause and effect, have we?
