vectored out to the trillions of nano fabricators doing the back-stroke in
the milky pool of goop? Radio? Infra-red? Batons (or quipu, as the Incas
would have done) handed physically back and forth? Is there a precise
cascade of fabricators, and chemo-gradients, and all that standard
make-a-meat-body stuff? (Not in a goop pool, I'd have thought.)

One approach that I know has received serious consideration is
megahertz-range acoustic signaling in the working fluid.
