Scientific debates have been under the influence of strange leaps
and fissures - from the quantum leap to the evolutionary leap, from
the leap in time to the cracks on the surface of the earth. This is a
tradition already found in Delphic oracles or the old tortoise shells
and coconut oracles. The E.R.P.-paradox as well as Bell's theorem
show that (if quantum mechanics has got it "right") any two particles
that had been in contact will continue to influence each other even
as they move farther and farther apart in the "intertime". The question
as to how this is possible beyond the limits of light speed leads into the
structured interspace of acausality, simultaneity and synchronicity.
It is for this reason that scientific "answers" often have an exotic air. The
search for truth in science seems to be drifting off into the realm of oracles
by a sort of invocation (founded on words) in its play with facts and words.
