One interesting thing mentioned in the radio interview was that at some lab in Germany in the 1960s, a completely sealed ampule filled with toxic biochemical agents fell into a pitcher of water and was left there for a few days. When they went to use the water, they found the ampule, took it out and tested the pitcher to make sure there was no leak of the toxic chemicals. The water tested fine but when they gave it to the lab rats, they all died.
The problem with superluminal information is that it is hard to verify. How do you know it has reached destination instantly if you don't have a way to "see" it? The notion of "instantly" must include the notion of simultaneity in the universe and I thought we agreed that it didn't exist; everything is relative to the observer's frame.
The instantaneous aspect isn't that hard to measure. They see the bacteria in the water react, measure the time. Time solar flares, subtract 9.5 minutes and compare the times - voila! If they happen at the same time, they happened at the same time. I think you're talking about a different kind of simultaneity, one in which two moments can't occur at the same time - I don't see why you can't compare two measurements. They've also done experiments where you separate a person's skin cells from well, them, and take them any distance anyway. If you stimulate the skin of the person, the skin cells away from the body react at the same time. Einstein himself admitted that his theories fall apart at the quantum level, but I think they are certainly still relative (hah) in the third dimension. If we consider that the 3rd dimension is enfolded within the 4th, then something that communicates in a dimension above ours would not have to follow any 3D rules about superluminal communication. If elements, animals and humans have an underlying 4th dimensional connection then this makes perfect sense. We now have numerous examples of all three of these different levels of consciousness seeming to have some sort of superconscious aspect.
Even a DVD which is simply plastic stores a wealth of information that can only be read with the proper laser and output device. Is it so radical to believe that perhaps water/hydrogen stores information in a similar manner, and we just don't have the proper equivalent of the laser to make that information available?
Reminds me of the precogs in Minority Report that are underwater...
