Faster than light is ordinary stuff
« on: October 29, 2015, 09:57:21 PM »
If the particles are one billion light years apart, it should take one billion years for something you do to one to have an impact on the other. The idea that that could happen with no time lag at all was something Einsten dismissed as “spooky action at a distance”—and he wanted no part of it.

But now, an experiment at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands suggests that the great man’s objections notwithstanding, spooky action at a distance is real. And with that, the entire field of quantum physics gets a big boost.

In 1964, physicist John Bell of CERN (The European Organization for Nuclear Research), developed the equations that freed quantum physics from the strictures of local-realism, defining mathematically how particles can be entangled in such a way that they are both part of what is known as a single wave function—instead of each particle being defined by its own wave function.

Sounds like the informational layer of reality is immanence. Time and space are a lower order that the purest information, the kind that is more cause than effect, isn't constrained by.

Reminds me of Schopenhauer: two things with the same exactly result must be the same causal chain. If that result occurs at a lower level than physicality, events in two different places may in fact be the same event, informationally. That in turn indicates the existence of the lesser strata at a level below physicality in the domain of information alone.

Wasn't this already good and proven with photons at least since 2012? What you do to the photon immediately affects all other photons within its "filament." This was all being used as fuel for non-locality and probablism.

I would assume a shockwave of sorts.  Like a portion of a rope catching up to a slower moving segment.  I wonder what would happen to a Poynting Vector (P = EXB) if it started oscillating like a jump rope?
