Though I don't think anyone seriously believes matter can travelfaster than light its a known fact that information travels faster than that, and I'm not talking gossip. Its been found that you can arrange 2 electrons so they have opposite spins. There total spin in this case = 0. Now if you measure the spin of one of the electrons in a particular way then the electron will always measure, say, -1. When the other electron spin is measured, and it doesn't matter how, it will indicate 1. And it works opposite also. You can use the other method to measure the first electron and it will then measure 1. And no matter how you then measure the second electron it will measure -1. And the moment a person measures the first electron "instantly" the second measures the opposite Now it turns out you can then separate the two electrons any distance - it could be across the galaxy - and this effect will still occur. Instantly. A pretty neat trick to try and get your head around but its all been proven. My own theory of how this happens is this: Empty space is not empty at all. Every bit of it is filled with quantum energy just as the earliest quantum scientists postulated but could never quite believe. The reason we don't experience it is because we don't live at the quantum level. Everything we do and see equates to what we would call "drift" in a conductor. (This is just an analogy) In a conductor even though the signal sent though the front of the wire appears to come out the other end at near the speed of light it doesn't mean the electron is going very fast. Just the information is going that fast like the effect of falling dominoes. Individual dominoes, or electrons, are probably only moving centimeters per second. This is the "drift" speed. I think in our universe all matter is restricted to to a top drift speed which happens to be the speed of light. But at the quantum level, if you are able to actually isolate just 1 quantum of energy, then if you push on it, that quantum will propogate across the universe instantly rather than be restricted to the speed of light. In other words there is a chain of dominoe like quantums of energy between the two electrons under discussion that each get moved when the first electron's spin is measured. And that information travels instantly, not at the speed of light. Does anyone else see this phenomenon this way? In a way it seems like someone else must have thought of this before.
