Information is Faster Than Light

How can information possibly be exchanged faster than the speed of light? After a bit of research on the background of the Bell Inequality it appears that the direction of theory is leaning towards QM (quantum mechanics). There’s no entanglement that allows for information to bypass the special relativity restriction on lights dominance as the “number one gun” of speed.

This particular far out theory of mine has to do with quantum entangled particles that are co-located but reside in orthogonal spaces. “There Mark goes, jumping the shark again” you may be saying to yourself, and who am I to argue with such an accurate description?

Here’s the thought experiment’s setup. Each particle in our universe is quantum entangled with another universe, but not all particles map to the same universe, so we’re “connected” to a large number of possible existences. These existences may have separate timelines but follow the same set of natural laws (whatever clever rules they may be). If we could identify which particles mapped to which universes, hypothetically we could identify a relationship between nearly identical worlds, but with a small delta time. This would allow knowledge before events, which could decouple our timelines and require searching for new adjacent universes. But even one such event transfer would allow for a large Mulligan of sorts. As an abysmal golfer (I can hit far, not straight), I for one see the great value in an occassional edit undo. The thought crossed my mind this morning after rolling my chair and stepping in some of the most terrible smelling dog droppings I’ve ever witnessed (definite correlation between these droppings and the residual dust of evil from the conclusion of Time Bandits).

    My apologies to folks that are offended by such nonsense :)

    Good stuff Mark!

    But I think you may be arguing the possible compression of space, rather than the speeding up of information!!!

    Ha, I think you may well have seen through to another “far out” idea of mine.

    I was thinking about a quantized version of space-time but it squishes down vacuum cells around large gravity wells not too long ago (something about photons exciting vacuum cells as energy waves).

    It's been a weird day. Had a great philosophical romp around moral relativism vs. absolutism, tied into chaos theory/free will versus determinism (Tad started the unhinging off by talking about Illuminatus Trilogy as an opposing force to Ayn Rand's stuff, here's the link).

    Not sure you win. There's almost certainly a higher order of infinity more universes that *aren't* “nearly identical” to ours in the sense of having an outcome different from that in our universe. I think your probability of finding on that is borders on zero.

    Watch the Sci-Fi show Sliders. I personally do not buy the multi-universe theories.

    Way to rain on the parade with reasonable search statistics :D. You got past the multiverse, quantum entangled sharing hurdles but wouldn't by the matching filter?

    Take for example you discover 100 almost identical (some particle state sharing that would be highly unlikely in widely different universes). Out of 100 of your randomly sampled connections 99 had a an Earthquake, wouldn't you want to be extra cautious about that day/time/locale?

    The cool feature of alnternate realities is that we should be able to discover or measure their existence or strengthen the view that they don't exist (or are relevant).

    I do my best to provide Mulligans to fellow dog owners who may or may not fancy multiverse theories.

    Almost forgot, sliders rocked. Admittedly Doctor Who is much better :D
