I say go with it, suzeeQ, and hats off to you for finding a credible explanation! I wonder if SM reads any of these posts and plans to address some of the issues brought up here in future books. Something tells me no, but one can always hope. I'm not sure she would arrive at such plausible explanations, considering her struggle with scientific credibility.
