My bet is on an experimental error. That is the safe bet. I hope I
loose because this being real faster than light neutrinos would be a
lot of fun.
If true my off the cuff guess is that this proves the existence of
dimensions higher than four. These are tiny and some closed shape.
most mater takes some long path through these and all the particles
that do interact, neutrinos don't take the long path and thereby
"miss" most mater and don't interact with it. Either they don't move
in that dimension or they take a bee-line
Under special relatively the speed of all particles is a constant, C
(This is why nothing can exceed C because everything in the universe
moves at constant speed (not constant velocity) of C. If the
Neutrinos really are "fast" then my guess is that the constant C holds
in more than four dimension. So this result would not disprove
Einstein, it would generalize the theory to n>4 dimensions.
The neutrinos, like every other particle pin the universe are moving
at exactly C through 10-space. (OK I guessed at the number 10 but
n-space where n>4)
I think this has to be the simplest possible explanation. "Short path
through dimensions > 4 explains both the apparent faster than light
speed (that is not faster than C in n-space) and why neutrinos don't
interact with matter very much. I'm sure I'm not the first to think
of this. It fall out obviously if you let N be > 4
