Sort of like, Willy Wonka's "Wonkavision" device? :whistle:

I wonder if something like this could be used to leave out cancer cells when reconstructing someone?

A data burst could handle it.
What? The bandwidth of a communications channel has an upper limit.

When regular communications approaches the bandwidth of the channel, a data burst can reduce the transmission time by increasing the data compression (i.e. omitting data, assuming that reconstruction techniques at the other end can reproduce it).

I don't even think teleported data can be compressed without destroying the entanglement.

Some futuristic communications channel may have a much higher bandwidth than existing channels, sure. But again, that doesn't affect the predictions made in the original story. The amount of data that needs to be transmitted is fixed based on the complexity of a human being.

I think it we have the technology to reconstruct someone we will also know an easier way of getting rid of cancer cells... but sure, I guess so.

I wouldn't want someone to have the power to remove what ever cells they wanted.

I am a Mormon.  If I don't use Mormons believe, those my beliefs only.
I do not go to church haven't for thirty years.
There are other Mormons on this site. So if I have misspoken about the beliefs. I welcome their input.
I am not perfect and never will be. I do strive to be true to myself. I do my best to stay true to the Mormon faith. Thanks for caring and if you don't peace be with you.

In Larry Niven's "A World Out of Time" (I believe it was,) the hero notices after being bitten by a cat that his gray hair is disappearing.

He's been using teleportation "pads" too, and one such device transported him to another pad that was beside it.

He thought the cat bite (it was millions of years in the future, and the cat was legless, crawling like a snake) was the key to his new youth.

Turned out the tele pad reset his telomeres and removed all the wastes, etc. from his body.

Imagine the government using this on the convicted.  They could go in and remove all the cells causeing him to be evil.  The convict would be somene else.

I'm pretty sure the convict would be dead.

yeah it does. but not by humans. mostly the time shifter person. thats all. the possibility to explain to you is to highly private and it would be sound impossible to humans. so its best to shut it and let the pros do what they do.

There are also unavoidable errors in communications, sending data from one location to another. There is always a segment of noise within the data transfer. It's interesting that this segment of noise contains data, and within this data there is another segment of noise again, and within this noise there is a portion of data, etc. All this becoming smaller and smaller segments of the communication.

Communications technology is designed to retrieve this data from these portions of noise. Even so, I think the teleportation of a human being would always contain unpredictable errors. You would never be exactly the same person after teleportation.

The trouble with teleportation: It could take quadrillions of years

Quote

Bad news, "Star Trek" fans: Even if you found a way to teleport a human being, sending the required data would take longer than the age of the universe. At least that's what fourth-year physics students from the University of Leicester concluded in the latest of a series of studies on way-out topics.
