“Every now and then you get a paper which gets everybody thinking and discussing, and this is one of those cases,” said Matthew Leifer, a quantum physicist at Chapman University in Orange, California. “[This] is a thought experiment which is going to be added to the canon of weird things we think about in quantum foundations.”

In accordance with the linguistic uncertainty principle?
Indeed, because, when you think about it, we are communicating with a forerunner of a future language, so we speak, in fact, a protolanguage.
Given that that is the case, we can look deeply into it from the perspective of future language users, and actually reconstruct the protolanguage that we currently speak.
This, of course, is a big thing, because it means that, as long as we understand the protolanguage as it will be reconstructed in the future, we've got a reasonable chance of understanding what others are saying to us today (as long as they're not using a different protolanguage) -- and, indeed, of understanding the thoughts that are going through our own heads in the protolanguage.
... and that, dear Chaps, is how quantum Physics really works.
Edited because I typed "our our" in place of "our own" -- but, who knows? Maybe that's how it's said, in the future (which is now to people and things in the future, so our thinking that the now that we are instantly aware of is the real now must be incorrect)

We have DevOps, SysOps, SecOps. Even NoOps (that's me at 8pm staring a the bottom of an empty glass). I was joking that I bet a few of you are actually SalesOps: IT Professionals who have to get on sales calls to help the sales team explain to customers what the product is, what it does, why it's useful and why they, Mr or Mrs Attractive and Intelligent Customer, really, really need it in their lives.
You probably then go and have a half hour shower and scrub hard.
Except SalesOps is really a thing and now my day is just a bit sadder.
So what Ops are you? Bonus points for the most obscure and/or embarrassing.
