Is teleportation, the instantaneous transfer of matter from one place to another, feasible or not?  That depends on the mount of matter involved, on whether it is a matter of teleporting a couple of molecules or the whole body of a person, and on the level of resolution desired to make sure that the living being to be teleported will actually be living when arriving at the destination.

Here is what some people not intent on making a living from trying to pull the wool over the eyes of people who received their education from the curriculum of the NWO have to say about it.

According to the BBC News Online, "To teleport a human would require knowledge of the type and exact position and movement of every atom of the person to be teleported. That is about a hundred thousand million million million million atoms. To send that information down today's fast data transfer systems would take a hundred million times longer than the present age of the Universe (which is about 15 thousand million years.)" Not quite the speed it happens on Star Trek.

If you approximate the digital information required to completely replicate a human body (to a one-atomic length precision), it would take over one hundred million centuries to transmit the data at top optical fiber speed. Since most people are running 14.4 or 28.8 these days, forget about it.

As for transporting matter, talk of 'pattern buffers' and 'transporter beams' and 'Heisenberg Suppressors' aside, we can already transport matter at nearly the speed of light in our accelerators, and our TV picture tubes. But entire people are more than atoms, they involve an enormous amount of information to specify the quantum states, locations and velocities of every fundamental particle in the body. The amount of information required is staggering, and relaying this from one place to another in a few seconds seems implausible. It may, however, be possible to do this with inorganic crystalline material in which the atoms are basically identical and occur in a fixed geometry. But 'regrowing' an object at the point of reception from a set of digital instructions would still take a long time since information transmission rates are measured in gigabytes per second, and even a simple objects contains trillions of atoms. Short cuts could be found, but then information would be lost which could be fatal for organic objects, and certainly for specifying the locations and states of the trillions of neuronal connections in the brain which control memory and behavior among other things.

One of the age-old dreams of science fiction writers may very soon be a reality. We are all familiar with the concept of teleportation from popular TV programmes like Star Trek, Knot's Landing and Cheers. Now scientists in Norway have discovered that - in theory, at least - teleportation is feasible. There are, however, limitations. Due to the phenomenal amounts of energy required the furthest distance it would be possible to transport any object is two and a half foot. The team believes that in less than two years it can have a fully-functional teleportation device up and running. It is expected to cost around two and a half billion pounds, require the entire energy output of western Europe, and be extremely useful for getting things down out of high cupboards.

News Headlines: Teleportation

And getting back to why teleportation of everyday objects is not possible, the reason is that it would flout one of the central laws of quantum physics, Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle. What this rule states, is that you cannot know both the position and the velocity of a particle at the same time. You just can't, it's not possible. And therefore, you could never collate all the information you would need about the atoms in your object to be able to teleport it elsewhere.

—BBC, Open Science, Background Brief, Teleportation

Basically, IBM's eggheads think it's no problem for an aggregation of quantum particles to be disassembled in one location and replaced later with a similar set at a different location. But when you're talking about an object that's more than a couple molecules in size, you better be prepared to wait. The all-knowing Cecil calculated that the complete data on the subatomic makeup of a human being would take about a hundred million centuries to send from here to there. Maybe this isn't so much a teleporter as it is a one-way time machine.

See, the fundamental problem is one of, how shall I say, bandwidth. Physicist Samuel L. Braunstein points out that a fairly coarse scan of the human body (one atomic length in each direction) would require 1032 bits of data. Using today's best fiber-optic technology, this would take a hundred million centuries to transmit. Even allowing for technological progress, it's going to be a long time before teleportation as a mode of transportation compares favorably with such none-too-challenging benchmarks as the U.S. mail.
