Higher dimensionality of photon structure would mean that photon structure exists outside of our 3-D space, yet that structure can touch our 3-D space anywhere, everywhere at the same time, which would mean an exchange of information would be possible without regard to time or distance.

Would it though? A higher dimensionality would mean that your particle would have a more complicated existence - but it would still have a tangible measurable existence (or more than one) in the three dimensions we know and love. As we can never (?) examine or experiment directly upon the other dimension we don't know about information transfer within it; but surely we must assume barring other evidence that it is the same as in our three dimensions and is limited by the speed of light. Information transfer speed from one part of an object to another part could be limited whether that object is higher dimensional or not. I think what I am getting at is that speculating that higher dimensions are involved does not solve the problem; one also needs to posit new ideas for the higher dimensions.
It's a nice concept, but confusing in the same time. To me it all comes back to free will, and why not what we call 'super-positions' which in a way is an expression of the state all 'free will' or 'choices' must come from. Like this, think of space as a surface, then 'wrangle it up'. Depending on how you wrangle it you get different properties from it, some of them introduce mass. Mass introduce the concept of times arrow and with that distances. All sweet and good But then we come to 'free will' and 'choices' making it able for me to 'willfully' change my position in this 3D + time. What would make that possible? If now space could do those things I described? It's so much easier to imagine it possible in a 'deterministic system' where all moves are steered by 'dead weight', nothing changing the predefined 'dead course' of those 'objects'. When you introduce that concept you still will have to explain that 'free will' it seems to me As for the explanation, I looked for your idea of polygons without really coming to grip with it. The closest I came was as a way to 'pan for information' making into a 'information concept'? So it's not a way of 'bending space' geometrically as I first assumed then?==To put my description in sync with your, photons are what we call the 'information carriers' between, and 'inside', particles, although 'virtual' being outside Planck Time. Which makes them a prerequisite for all mass to exist, I think? Or at least being a symbiosis with that mass. Awh, don't know if you see what I mean there, like this, without those photons no life would exist.
