vanesch said:Yes, I understand that. What I wanted to say is that certain events in the sample will be almost perfectly synchronized, making the speed arbitrary high.
Arbitrarily high speed does not contradict the superluminal hypothesis, unless it is also coupled with arbitrariness of direction. The suggestion has been made that all EPR-type signals are instantaneous relative to a single, preferred frame of reference (see quant-ph/0110160). If the laboratory is at rest relative to the preferred frame, or nearly so, measured speeds would be arbitrarily high.
I have difficulties with that idea [disappearance of EPR-like effects for some spacelike intervals], in that brick walls, rivers, tunnels etc... don't seem to do anything.
I don't understand the connection with macroscopic objects. What do you mean?
My personal theory is that beyond a spacelike separation of 70802 lightyears, the effect suddenly disappears :tongue2: But I can't get funding for an experimental verification...
Hey, if you are patient enough to wait 70802 years for the results to reach you, you deserve funding!
