Faster than Light Neutrinos Flaw Found

Two Indian physicists have found serious a problem with the experimental observations that neutrinos went faster than Light. That problem is has to do with the fact that if the neutrinos has traveled faster than Light relativity shows that their energy would have actually been much lower than what was actually observed. This throws an interesting wrench in problem.

Interestingly there is a way of reconciling these results that is consistent with established physics, specifically Quantum Mechanics. That solution is that the CERN neutrinos did travel at sublight speeds but only through the space they actually went through and that the instantly skipped the rest of it making their average speed faster than light. Quantum Mechanics has several phenomenon like quantum tunneling that allow this to happen

This also supports my information universe since the location of a particle is just information it can skip over segments of space and effectively travel faster than light with out actually doing so through the space it actually goes through. In fact the model the speed of light is the fastest that it possible to go with out skipping over segments of  space because light travels exactly 1 planck length / planck time so if the if space is pixilated then to go faster than that would require skipping over segments of space.
