Retro Tech: Teleportation

For decades people have dreamed of a technology that would allow them to instantly be somewhere else. I’m taking a deep dive into teleportation tech and the next best thing - virtual reality with Jake Baldino and Neil DeGrasse Tyson.

    But could we teleport non-sentient items, like a paper clip? He makes it sound like it’s possible to transport molecules so long as they are able to hold the information of its assembly... with the exception of things like memories and brain synapses. But paper clips and objects don’t have those things. Could we teleport items, but not humans?

    I like the philosophical question of people appreciating being there physically even though you could have the same experience in VR. But for me teleportation is not just for sightseeing, but being able to travel quickly. If teleportation was slower than taking the train/plane/car... whats the point of it? Imagine having breakfast with your dad (being able to hug him) in the UK at 9am (9am BST = 6pm ACT) and putting your kids to sleep, giving them a kiss on the forehead the same day in Australia! Thats the magic of teleportation.

    I think another interesting way to simulate the feeling of teleportation similar to VR, would be to create a way for a person to be in one place with a VR set up or mesh exo-suit on, and be able to manipulate the environment of in another location. Possibly "puppeteering" a robot that stands in your place of some sort that moves as you move, or moves as you direct with immersive tech. Def. not used in public but at home if youre at work, or at work if you want to work literally work from home lol just an interesting idea..

    I'm glad to hear an actual scientist say the same thing I've always thought about teleportation.. Sure, you can break me down and rebuild me somewhere else... but is it really me? And to take it even further, if the existence of a "spirit" is real... can we even then call a complete copy with complete memories us still? Would our existence blip out as a clone existence continues on as if nothing ended? Your experience as you could end as your shell continues on living life as if nothing happened.

    I believe the most realistic path to teleportation is by using two technologies that are currently in its baby shoes: cognitive reading/manipulation (stuff like Neuralink) and cloning or robotics. Why go through all the effort of physically moving a body? In the end, it's just about where your mind is located. When we succeed in reading the brain and uploading information to the brain, we can have either a human clone of ourselves or a robotic replacement wherever we want to teleport to, and upload our mind to that location.

    Really interesting video! Though I think the Virtual Reality connection is very tenuous and received way too much screen time here. I wasn't sure how the double slit experiment connected to teleportation, but you did a good job of wrapping it in without spending too much time on that tangent. Would have liked to have seen less VR (in that vein) and more discussion of quantum teleportation.

Planet earth can be difficult enough to live on at times with people not caring about others or how they effect others like a ripple effect. This is crestons wife. People are always looking for a way to escape their problems just to take them wherever they go even if people could live on another planet they would find a way to take their problems with them and ruin it look at Californians with living relocating to texas.

    I don't think rematerializing is a good idea. In theory, when you rematerialize, the machine is copying every single molecule in your body and rebuilding it somewhere else, but the problem with this is that it's essentially making a copy of you and deleting your old self. Like Neil deGrasse Tyson said, that physical clone of you is not YOU until it has the memories of your brain, but I disagree. When you take a computer file and copy and paste it, the second file is the EXACT same file information-wise (it has all the memories, etc.), but it's not the EXACT same file because it's just a clone. It would technically do the same things and serve the same purpose, but the original file was deleted, and this would mean that if it happened to us, we would just be cloning ourselves, building the clone, then killing ourselves. We would be dead, but no one else would notice because the clone would completely replace us in every way. I wouldn't want to replace myself and kill myself for the sole purpose of transportation.

    It would take 10 trillion gigawatt-hours of power to teleport a human. "Teleporting one human being would therefore require hogging the entire UK power supply for more than a million years and take some 4.8 million million years to transfer - or about 350,000 times longer than the universe has existed. It would literally be quicker to walk."

Or who shall stand in his holy place? 4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. 5 He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah. 7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. 8 Who is this King of Glory? The Lord strong and mighty, The Lord mighty in battle. 9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of Glory shall come in. 10 Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

    ok so arent memories just energy and vibrations? Theoretically teleporting a person with their memories would be just leaving the memories as energy. while converting the rest into energy. so that shouldn't be a problem at all. After all body temperature is just energy and vibrations as well so you would want the person to come out the same body temperature and not frozen or scalding on the other side. With that said again as far as today's tech, it goes back to a memory issue. as long as you can memorize the state of all that energy the teleportation part should be the easier part.

    Tbh, I think this will only be available when, or if, quantum computers become more common place (albeit still very expensive); which would be the possible answer to the information loss when turned to energy, saving your atomic and neural structure. Though I’m not sure if even quantum computers could process that massive amount of information.

    The coolest version of VR I've tried was at an Air & Space Museum. They had this pod you got in that simulated the cockpit of a fighter jet and there were screens all around on the inside. As you move the center stick the pod responds my actually moving/tilting. The graphics were pretty basic, much like a basic flight simulator, but it was super enjoyable.

    Teleportation could be interdenominational. That is, allowing a person to step through a hole in spacetime and step out of a similar hole, elsewhere. Kinda like a wormhole, or like hyperspace for an individual, rather than a spaceship. This is definitely far fetched, but probably a lot more likely than Star Trek's transporter. You step in, or get pulled into, another realm, whole, and pop out, or get deposited at a new destination. That's how the teleporter experiment from Big Hero 6 worked.

    Acts 13:24 When John had first preached before his coming the baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel. Acts 13:25 And as John fulfilled his course, he said, Whom think ye that I am? I am not he. But, behold, there cometh one after me, whose shoes of his feet I am not worthy to loose. Acts 13:26 Men and brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you feareth God, to you is the word of this salvation sent. Acts 13:27 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not, nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in condemning him. Acts 13:28 And though they found no cause of death in him, yet desired they Pilate that he should be slain. Acts 13:29 And when they had fulfilled all that was written of him, they took him down from the tree, and laid him in a sepulchre.
