It is universally accepted that communication faster than light-speed is not possible. However, to be described is a communication mechanism that does do it.
It has been shown that entangled particles, miles from each other, can correlate with each other much faster than the speed of light, as if only inches from each other. Even though they are correlated, transmitting messages using this correlation is not possible, according to orthodox theory. The reason is that all entanglement only seems possible while the particles are in random state. The mere attempt to constrict the particles to any non-random subset seems to destroy their entangled state.
A related action-at-a-distance phenomenon to entanglement is the ability of a single atomic particle to be dispersed over large distances. While this suffers from a similar inability to predict where any single particle will terminate, it is possible to modify statistically where the particles terminate. The arrangement described here does just that. By changing the interference pattern at an input node, it statistically varies the rate of particles termination at an output node instantaneously. Detection of the rate change is converted to zeros and ones.
