While Bolt was blowing away the 100 meter mark , another speed record fell, with far more portentious consequences . An entangled pair of photons ran an information relay at better that ten thousnd times the speed of light , and those who managed the race may end up with another sort of gold medal , for passing a milestone on the road to multiple worlds.

Whatever was affecting the photons seems to have happened so nearly instantaneously that t the phenomenon influencing the particles had to be traveling at least 10,000 times faster than light. Since that can't happen in four dimensions of space and time, the experiments show that entanglement might be controlled by something existing beyond it.
