Ken Wharton SJSU says causes are best modeled by boundary condition. I like that.

http://arxiv.org/abs/1003.4273

if hidden variables HV the boundary condition is only a partial constraint

Bell's theorem does not apply in retrocausal RC theory

if no HV then over-constrained system with a final future boundary condition

RC with HV prevent free-will weak paradoxes

Doubling BC's past and future needs doubling parameters of the 1-particle state,

i.e. history and destiny state vectors of Aharonov & Co is one approach among several

found Phys v37 (2010) p. 313

Ken uses relativistic Klein-Gordon not Schrodinger non-relativistic eq.

future-past Lagrangian action principle is the most fundamental

has both efficient (retarded history) and final (teleological destiny) causes.

Feynman path integral is way to go.

Born rule & unitarity are not fundamental.

deterministic forward in time only Hamiltonian picture not fundamental in Ken's scheme.

No classical path of constructive interference in many cases?

Start with time symmetry ---> retrocausality with Block Universe - unknown territory

at retrocausal conference Ken Wharton giving first talk had good discussion with Russell Targ at breakfast on CIA operational work. Ed May also there.
