I guess it could mean that, but as you say, it doesn't seem to mean 
anything useful. Maybe, somewhere, there is some situation where such a 
thing might make sense, but something that specific would probably 
deserve much more than just one ambiguous line. Maybe you've got a time 
machine that can send happiness to people in the past. By pressing this 
button, /I make him have been happy./
