Force Directed Layout by Occupation AND Time with all connections with Ghosting and Dual sliders.
This one works the same as the next with ghosting, but all vertices and edges that exist at the time of the top slider appear outlined in red. All that exist at the time of the bottom slider appear outlined in blue. All that exist in both times are purple. Edges between an alive node in blue and an alive node in red that don't overlap in time are shown in green.
