well you can assume any interaction between particles. But
interactions itself are particles too in QuantumElectroDynamics=QED.

So >everything< that can transfer information (even interactions) are
particles currently. And particles cant go faster than lightspeed. Isnt
life wonderful? :) Thats what those guys at CERN are doing: screwing
around with particles <==> screwing around with everything :))
