I develop Special Relativity with backward-light-cone simultaneity, which I call, for reasons made clear in the paper, 'Apparent Simultaneity'. In the first section I show some advantages of this approach. I then develop the kinematics in the second section. In the third section I apply the approach to the Twins Paradox: I show how it removes the paradox, and I explain why the paradox was a result of an artificial symmetry introduced into the description of the process by Einstein’s simultaneity definition. In the fourth section I discuss some aspects of dynamics. I conclude, in a fifth section, with a discussion of the nature of light, suggesting that transmission of light energy is a form of action at a distance.
