Answer: it can give some qualitative intuition on what is larger/smaller happens before/after based only on arguably more intuitive geometric considerations, without requiring you to do any calculations, see e.g. Figure 48. "Spacetime diagram illustrating how faster-than-light travel implies time travel.".
