    Default Is Teleportation Possible?

    This guy thinks so. At least it works with a single atom.

    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    You can pre-order on Amazon.


    Frink: I take it from that little impressed noise that you are interested in purchasing that matter transporter, sir.
    Homer: Emm… Two bucks… And… It only transports matter… Um… Well ah… I'll give you thirty five cents.

    this would be cool. I was driving home from the dog park and I live right by the highschool which you have to drive past to get home and the middle school is a few blocks away so of course it was 3:30 and school was getting out and my thought was why don't they have teleporters? I hope they hurry up

    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Default Teleology

    We have the telephone, and we have television, so teleporting seems the next step.

    But before we go teleporting we might wonder how the telephone is transforming us, and how the television is transforming us.

    And for the intellectuals amongst us we might wonder about teleology.

    Teleology is a direction, a movement from a beginning, a middle, to an end. But applying teleology to the phone and the TV is like calling a car a horseless carriage. In fact the phone and the TV have no teleology, everything is coterminus. For instance, we are coterminus on different parts of the Earth on Typology Central.

    The habit of thought called teleology is function of the book which has, as part of its nature, a beginning, a middle, and an end, so books are teleological. So we look at the new electronic media through the eyes of a literate individual, a teleological individual. So we apply tele- to the electric media in the same way we called a car a horseless carriage.

    We drive forward looking in the rear vision mirror at the book, while the electric media is rushing towards us through the windscreen.

    I watched a documentary a while ago which indicated they were experimenting successfully with quantum teleportation on some islands off the coast of Africa. The article doesn't mention that it's not quite teleportation as we understand it from science fiction. Through the use of quantum entanglement, an identical copy of the atom is generated in a distant location, but the original completely dematerializes.
