Well hopefully we won't need to worry about the speed of light anymore
Just recently I heard about the experiments with "quantum nonlocality"
no one seem to understand how it happens but for me it's enough it works
Basically when 2 photons or electrons are emitted form the same source -they are somehow bound/entangled together
-that means if we change the spin on one photon to "up" the other photon will have it's spin changed to "down"
-and it doesn't matter whether the photons are next to each other or light years away -this happens instantly (no
energy is transferred yet the information is passed)
-this was already tested between two cities
Imagine that instead of sfp connectors and dark fiber between San Fran and NY node we'd install a connectors with
let's say 1500k entangled photons
-and if we set the spin in a way to send a 1500kbit packet to NY the NY node would see it instantly -no cables needed
-also there some attempts to actually send the information 50 micro sec back in time
Of course there are still these issues with probabilities at quantum level
I *strongy* recommend that anyone pursuing this subject read Dr. Asimov's
essays on resublimated thiotimoline.
