Note that you still have not answered my question on where you read such a thing.Wonderful comments :)
especially the 'psychological fear' that you when the 'new' you reach the other side would
wonder if they've been transported or believe they were just a 'copy'
So, what would be first and the easiest?
1. Quantum teleportation where 'YOU' are physically transported
2. Where your an exact replica of you if destroy and remade at another end
and with the second one...it gives evokes another question..
is it worth 'continuing your life' through a replica or a memory storage since the 'copied' you isn't really 'YOU'
Quantum teleporation has nothing to do with making duplicates of something and reproducing it somewhere else. Thus, your claim that you read that it might be "possible" one day is unverified. If this remains unverified, then this whole thread is based on a premise that has not be shown to be valid, rending subsequent discussion of it to be based on faulty foundation. It will become another classic case of "When did you stop beating your wife?" discussion.
