The spooky action at distance that does not travel ...

I was reading Metro this morning, and that have a wee article about a new study published in Nature.

They kind of present the study as if it did measure the speed of an "instant", which it did not. If you read the abstract you'll see that the expirement was a Bell test, which is a way to prove that reality as understood in the classic sense is broken.

And while doing this experiment they did measure that if this phenomenum was due to communication the information would have to travel more than 10,000 times the speed of light.

But there is no information transmitted in these experiment, if you look at the Multiverse explanation - I don't know how the Copenhagen interpretation.

You don't affect the other particle by observing the first one, it's the oposite. Your observation makes you entangle to the system, and your universe would only be able too have one outcome.

Another unintended consequence of the benchmarks ?

Trains into London now slower than in 1987 - or is just a ruse?

Rail passengers face slower train journeys into London than 21 years ago.

Popular services to the capital are slower than in 1987 despite rail network and rolling stock improvements.

Critics say rail firms are "padding out" timetables by adding a few minutes to journeys between key stations to ensure trains arrive on time.

Physical move

The physical me is transmoving himself to Belfast, NI next month. I guess the transport got the better of him. And the fact that place that will accommodate him is a gorgeous 2 B flat in the city center is not for nothing.

Obviously in London he will come back every so often, especially in November for the Mighty Boosh play!

Because he wants to be an achiver.
