That's not teleportation, that's just recreation. Which is a pretty good idea for cloning or such, but doesn't really satisfy the theory of teleporting.selfAdjoint said:The situation at present is that they have "teleported" photons and electrons. I put the word in quotes because they actually destroy the particle at its old location and recreate "it" at a new one. And I put "it" in quotes because with elementary particles there are issues of "what do you mean, same particle?"
What? Elaborate.Gold Barz said:Yeah, but thats just the present.
Gold Barz said:I meant thats what our current technology could do, "re-create" not really teleport that actual "thing" that was teleported.
Noir indeed! "Let me send you to a star"..."I can do it, but did I mention that nobody I've sent so far has bothered to write home?" "Darned ingrates!"selfAdjoint said:Quite right. But AFAIK, there are no theories that would support anything better than that.
Once I had this idea for a science fiction story. This is NOT REAL PHYSICS! Just bafflegab for a story.....I forgot to mention that the story was to be noir.

Just my luck to try it when there's a paper jam.......
