maior é o atraso com que o vemos
Explanation:
Observe que "the" é essencial na expressão original, a qual é a segunda parte de um par idiomático: "the further XXX, the further back YYY". Em português, "quanto mais XXX, mais recuado/para trás [é] YYY"

mais para trás no tempo o vemos


Explanation:


Sugiro uma tradução mais literal. Uma tradução interpretativa tira a poesia da expressão e nos distancia um pouco da ideia real do fenômeno. O texto original (inglês) poderia ter sido escrito de outra forma, mas o autor tinha uma intenção e optou por escrever de forma descritiva.
