If you've read all the stuff above about P2 probability waves, you might be thinking to yourself , "All right, this guy took the most simple and basic experiment in quantum physics, and claims that by breaking it up into separate pieces, somehow a FTL radio can fall out."

Well, not quite. And, not without a lot of hard work. The main point in deconstructing the single slit experiment was to show you how more information can be learned about a system after it has been separated into its many components.  This is basic to scientific methodology.  To learn about something, you really have only two choices: 1. you can look at the whole, and come to a conclusion, or 2, you can break the system into many smaller, simpler to understand pieces, and come to a conclusion. Historically, more success has been achieved by looking  at simple, rather than complex parts and then combining the parts back to the whole. This is The Scientific Method - and it is saying KISS. Keep it simple, err, you know what I mean.  The simpler a problem is, the easier it is to solve (sound better?) Well, it's true. It follows a chain of logic towards an inevitable conclusion. In this case, that there are two types of probability waves at work even in the most simple of examples.  P1 waves give the results we see when we do the single slit experiment the way it's been thought of for decades. So where do P2 waves fit in?

In a simple single slit experiment, though P2 waves are there, they don't belong to the experiment. As soon as they are created they become part of space itself. P1 waves are all that is necessary for the experiment to work, so in this sense, they belong to the experiment. They are real because they produce real results, results that can be measured. P2 waves, on the other hand, can't ever be detected within the experiment because they are imaginary, and we don't have equipment to detect imaginary waves. But, since they were at one point tied to the real part of a wave, were at one point complex, they were at one point controllable. If you modulated a complex wave, gave it useable information, even after the P1 wave is gone, the P2 Imaginary wave still retains the information you gave it - you have indirectly modulated an imaginary wave, and that is a very exciting thing to consider. To create a FTL information transfer system, you must first impart the information onto an imaginary wave - well, you have done it. You have created one half of your FTL radio - the transmitter. You now have modulated P2 waves running around the universe - and it wasn't hard to create them at all. Question is, how do you receive them? You have managed to make a wave that is, because it is imaginary, everywhere and nowhere at the same time. If you can create the receiver, it would not matter where in the universe you are - in the next room, on Mars, or in the Andromeda galaxy. You would detect them the instant they were created. Nifty, eh?

Of course, the single slit experiment is only a starting off point, meant only for illustration. Both the transmitter and the receiver of imaginary waves must be a physical circuit, a machine of some sort.... One part creates complex waves, and allows you to place meaningful information in them, and then strips off the real part - this is the P2 transmitter. The other part must somehow detect the P2 wave, re-integrate it into a complex wave that can be manipulated, so the information the P2 wave contains can become useful once more - this is the P2 receiver. But didn't I just say we have no way to detect imaginary waves a bit ago? It's true.  It turns out the receiver is an example of human ingenuity twisting the universe towards its own goals. It can be done, but by comparison, creating the P2 wave is simpler than detecting it... so lets talk about making practical P2 waves first, shall we?

 

Nothing. It really can travel faster than light....
