What Einstein called “spooky” action at a distance could theoretically be evidence of retrocausality, which is the particle equivalent of you getting a stomach ache...

New research has demonstrated the feasibility of a rather creative solution to the challenge of sending large amounts of data over interstellar distances; we could use the Sun’s gravity. The same lensing effect that has allowed astronomers to see galaxies at the edge of the Universe would also focus streams of information...
