Comment So.. for a non-physicist (Score 1, Interesting) 152

- For everything above quantum, the maximum speed is the speed of light.
- This dictates cause and effect, and therefore time.
- If we send out a steady stream of entangled particles, and sometimes change and sometimes don't (at the one end), and measure at the other (this is how I imagine how a bitstream would work using quantum entanglement, correct me if I'm wrong), we can send information quicker than the speed of light.
- Therefore the information goes back in time.

Or something?
