Yeah - this seems to me to be based on one of those statements that has grown mythically over time. I do remember the interview that he is talking about, way back in season one, and it has been a statement we have debated endlessly here over the past several years. I wish I knew their exact words, but my impression of those words is that the explanations were all grounded in science. Now, Miles talking to dead people stretches that a little bit, but there is scientific study surrounding the occult, so who knows. Remember what Ray Bradbury said - any sophisticated technology will appear to be like magic to primitives. Perhaps we are simply too primitive to see that this is all scientifically possible? Certainly, as noted already, time travel has been scientifically studied.
I, for one, am really glad the powers that be have extended the scope of their storytelling. As already stated, they know how to tell a good yarn.
