This is how I felt at first as well. Then my roomate made the excellent point that any signal transmitted through space would still remain in space traveling outward.

If you've got a (latent) telepath fixated on the corruption of Earth tearing through space with her mind in a machine capable of intercepting those signals and decoding them... she is actually quite likely to cross space that is carrying that signal.

(Similar to how our first radio transmissions still exist in space.)

OR

the machine is just powerful enough to rip stored transmissions off of a shadow ship... but I like the first one better from a sciency perspective
