    I don't think it'll work out. We can teleport photons, but an entire human body? The cellular sequencing involved is simply too massive. Too much data and memory required to put every molecule back as found. With each teleportation, one would become less and less like one's original self.

    Seems like a decent way to do things like remove tumors, and replace dying organs, no?
    I'm doing science and I'm still alive

    What? After accidentally teleporting your ear on your backside? Sure, why not!

    No seriously, that IS a bandied-about "realistic" application. Removal of suppurated flesh/organs/tumors sounds applicable.

    I could go into this with a bit more depth, but I won't. I will say, however, that your assumption that matter must first be rearranged and then reverted back into the original design is flawed under the method that I am considering. Under quantum theory, nothing is 100% set in stone. To say that you are reading this text would only be a very high probability, but there is a slight probability that you are somewhere else in the universe entirely (this slight probability is so slight that it might as well be insignificant). Now, if you were to examine a graph of all the quantum probabilities, you'd see a lot of minor spikes (or white noise), and a lot of major spikes (high probabilities of one's location in space, etc.). Teleportation could be achieved (at least in theory) by moving one highly-spiked area to a point of white noise, thereby changing the high probability of you being in your home to, say, being at the supermarket.

    Of course, this is a very rudimentary explanation, and is far-fetched at the very least.

    An interesting explanation. I'll have to read further on the subject (Scientific American and Science only go but so far...). Physical incomprehensibility of the theory unfortunately remains. Theoretically, there is no fixed point in space to describe space. And yet a fixed point must be chosen to describe anything worthwhile, like the distance from one ridiculously far-flung black hole to some point of light lost in the deep field for purposes of measuring the radiation from some dying super nova that no longer emits eye-detectable wavelengths.

    Teleport me to the supermarket right now. My brakes don't work.

    Of course, this is a very rudimentary explanation, and is far-fetched at the very least.
    That sums up the Ne-primary playground.

    I love the Incredible Night Crawler.

    Sometimes in the middle of an argument I will just go all silent. Then when the person I am talking to asks why I have that look on my face I tell them, "I was just imagining the look you would have on your face if I could teleport behind you and take you out at the knees. I would have to teleport back pretty quickly though, you know, in order to witness it."
