Scientists succeed in "teleporting" atom by

42 posts in this topic

"Quantum entanglement" may sound like an awful sci-fi romance flick, but it's actually a phenomenon that physicists say may someday lead to the ability to teleport an object all the way across the galaxy instantly.

It's not exactly the Star Trek version of teleportation, where an object disappears then reappears somewhere else.Rather, it "entangles" two different atoms so that one atom inherits the properties of another.

"According to the quantum theory, everything vibrates," theoretical physicist Michio Kaku tells NPR's Guy Raz. Kaku is a frequent guest on the Science and Discovery channels. "When two electrons are placed close together, they vibrate in unison. When you separate them, that's when all the fireworks start."

This is where quantum entanglement — sometimes described as "teleportation" — begins. "An invisible umbilical cord emerges connecting these two electrons. And you can separate them by as much as a galaxy if you want. Then, if you vibrate one of them, somehow on the other end of the galaxy the other electron knows that its partner is being jiggled."

This process happens even faster than the speed of light, physicists say.

It could one day lead to new types of computers, and some even think entanglement may explain things like telepathy.

Very interesting.

It does not and never has existed. The body is all there is. You are a continually varying pattern of information in a material matrix, that's all. If you transmit the matter in exactly the same pattern of information (or, more accurately, copy the pattern onto other matter), then you have transmitted/copied-pasted everything that the pattern ever was. Do it to a person, and you HAVE teleported/copied the person, and the copy should feel just like the original. But only if you can manage to keep the integrity of the pattern perfectly.

There is no such thing as a "soul", this is a vestige of religion and the idea of homunculi. There is no reason to suggest the soul's existence, everything that we are can be explained physically. This doesn't reduce th beauty of the world (and even if it did, that's no argument against it - the world doesn't HAVE to be magnificent), in fact, I'd say, it increases it. The world's just amazing, and not having this fictional "soul" doesn't make it any less so.

I don't need the security blanket of the "soul". I exist as a pattern. I always have, I always will. Even if I should die, the pattern remains as an influencing factor on the universe, and also remains in existence as a part of the pattern of the entire cosmos, in the past. I don't need to pretend that I have a "soul" so that I can deal with death by imagining that my soul will survive and so I will. That's a little childish, it's certainly self-serving. With no reason to postulate the soul's existence, you are merely using a crutch to support yourself; you are afraid to see things as they really are.

Believe all you want. But don't act surprised when someone calls you on your unwarrented beliefs. You can't talk about these beliefs/opinions as if they are well-supported by science; it'll only make those who understand the science want to explain why you're wrong to profess them, at least scientifically wrong.

That said, it is definately true that even if you recreate the pattern in a new matrix, you don't have the original pattern. It is a new and identical pattern. If it is a person, for all practical purposes it will be the same person. But there will be no genuine continuity. You wouldn't appear in a new location in the same body. It would be a new body, same pattern. It would feel like the real person, the original, and for all real purposes it would be. But, again, it's a new identical pattern in a new material matrix. It's not the same person, and it's not even really teleportation. Even if the person feels like there is a sense of continuity, this is an illusion created by copying the pattern and placing it in a new matrix. It wouldn't be you if you did it, not really. Imagine if you could retain both identical patterns, on both sides of the "teleporter". Both would feel they were you, the original. They would both be exactly the same, down to an atomic level. They would have the same memories, attributes, characteristics, etc. So who would really be the real you? Both, though one pattern is older and more "real" in this way. You are creating a new person when you do this, though with an old pattern. The moment you both start to diverge is the moment that two people have come to exist, and not just a copy of an old one. You will evolve in different ways because of differing environments. This isn't really teleportation, it's a fancy way of flash-cloning people. I think it may have more uses in medecine, if we can advance to transmitting advanced patterns of information and not be limited to single atom patterns.

We could only resurrect people if we recorded their exact pattern BEFORE death, unfortunately. Otherwise, we'd copy a corpse. We need ALL of the information from EVERY particle in the body of a person before you can "teleport" that person, and so anyone who is already dead would be ineligable. The only way around this would be to make up the information missing, creating a similar person but not the same person who died, because of the degradation that would have happened to the pattern.

Still, it's a lovely idea. If it could be done, then you could regularly get back ups of your pattern, maybe once a week or something. If you died, could paste the backup pattern onto a new material matrix, and then have a new you. But, unfortunately, this is really just a selfish thing, because it wouldn't REALLY be you. It'd be like birthing a fully grown new you, really just to help the living, not you at all. The original you, the older you, would still be dead, the new you would have the same memories and be identical in every way except in actually being you. Still, it is a kind of immortality...

the teleportation of particles has already been done. it is even possible, although technologically impossible for us, to teleport any object. the hard part is finding every bit of information for every particle in an object

This reminds of the "Broken Angles" sci-fi book and series.

Copies of peoples minds and personalities as well as genetic make-up are stored, if somone dies, they can simply "decant" a copy of thier mind into a new body, even an identical version of thier original one.

The future happens so fast :-)

I hate to tell you this but you are absolutly 100% EEEEEHHHH WORNG.

All energy has a half life. Even the energy in our bodies. Call it a soul if you want but regarless of what you call it, the engergy / Eletricity has a half life. Meaning after we die the engery contained in your brains or body will continue on in some fashion.

That is all :)

Sounds like you can't really prove it so you use personal enthusiasm to attempt to make me wrong. I'm not sorry at all to tell you that this isn't a valid debating tactic. You can't just claim someone's wrong and expect to be taken seriously with no backup argument at all.

All energy has a half life. Even the energy in our bodies.

Oh, so you mean that half of the energy in us is lost in a certain period of time? Because that's what a half-life is. Energy/substances that ar subject to a half-life will halve themselves over the period of the half-life. I dont think you really understand what a half-life is.

Call it a soul

Why would I want to use your hokey vestigial language?

regarless of what you call it, the engergy / Eletricity has a half life.

No, it doesn't really have a half-life. I understand that you're trying to co-opt scientific sounding words to make a point, but it's not working. Try to explain better what you mean, and, also, the energy in your body is not wholly electrical. In my post, I refer to the ENTIRE PATTERN, of matter and of energy, within the body. You're referring soley to energy and/or (it isn't clear) electricity. Which is inaccurate. Anything remaining after death is not you, nor does it contain your pattern. Your pattern is a part of the universe, and will exist after death only in this regard. You cannot claim this kind of thing, friend, unless you have proof, and unless you've go more text in your post coloured white or something, you've got none.

Meaning after we die the engery contained in your brains or body will continue on in some fashion.

So will the matter. But you won't continue, at least outside of this. Your pattern will never be attached to the same material matrix again. Even if it could be, it wouldn't be you. And the existence of a pattern after death does NOT prove the existence of consciousness after death (I know you didn't mention this, but from your words, you probably believe this). You've got no reason to believe in this after-life "existence". Not only that, but it IS quite clear that the pattern that you ARE, the pattern that makes you everything you are, dissipates after death. It may "exist in some form", certainly if you allow that time doesn't matter to the universe, but this is a wholly new form. It is not the you that you know.

Again, I'm not sorry to try to explain reality without resorting to foolishness with no logical backing. I mean no offense, but foolishness is what I consider these arguments to be. It's only a real debate if both sides have supporting evidence.

That is all :)

I'm afraid you haven't explained anything with included logic and evidence or convinced anyone.

very interesting. I cant wait for the day we can do full body/conscious teleports instead of sending a clone, if its even possible :blink: but my views of whats possible and whats not seems to grow dimmer and dimmer everyday. :unsure2:

The so called energy in your body after death is reserved for the decomposition that starts almost immediately after death.

If we teleport, wouldn't it just create a "double" of ourselves, and this instance of "us" would vanish? Imagine it like this: You enter the teleport machine, still conscious. Machine "copies" your data at the destination and rids of the "old you". This instance of "you" no longer exists, and the "double" of you appears at the destination thinking he's you because he has your memories, but in truth "you" dissapeared.

Correct me if I'm wrong but.. with this explanation, it means that whatever things i do with the original will happen to its partner... How do we eradicate the original without eradicating its copy, since they are entangled with each other?...

What people grasp in life to believe in is a choice and has little to do with this topic for you to come in bashing them. It's not always about science when it comes to religion you should know that. Many things in life have been set into motion by nothing more than religion alone. People that do believe in the human soul do not need a warranty it's called faith some have it and others like yourself do not. But I do hope one day you find it because this pattern you speak of is pretty much your soul rather you can handle calling it that or not. They are both the same.

Correct me if I'm wrong but.. with this explanation, it means that whatever things i do with the original will happen to its partner... How do we eradicate the original without eradicating its copy, since they are entangled with each other?...

After reading further ill post some quotes from persons more knowledgeable in the subject then myself(which i clearly lack)

"You can't "jiggle" one of the particles and use its entanglement partner to see that it has been "jiggled". What actually happens is that when one of the particles changes its state spontaneously, (without someone "jiggling" it), its partner will change its state at the same time. If you tried "jiggling" one of the particles, you would actually destroy the entanglement. The change in state has to be spontaneous, it can't be manipulated by outside forces. Sadly, this limitation makes quantum entanglement rather useless for any sort of communication purposes. Its really more like the particles are synchronized rather than somehow communicating with each other."

"There is also a fundamental misunderstanding, here: the difference between "Classical Teleportation" and "Quantum Teleportation".

"Classical Teleportation" is the sci-fi Star Trek type of teleportation we are all familiar with. Methods vary, but one example would be to scan every atom in your body into a digital data stream, upload that stream to a reciever elsewhere while destroying the original, and reconstruct a replica at the destination. You would die in the process, but no one else would care, not even your "clone". This leads to the moral questions hinted at in the third paragraph above. �

"Quantum Teleportation" is simply the manipulation of entangled pairs. An agitated electron here changes state, which causes its entangled buddy to change state too. It is not really teleportation at all, more like a transmitted signal. The entanglement happens faster than the speed of light, yes, but somewhat counter-intuitively, it cannot be used to actually communicate faster than light. Nor can it be used to transport matter in any way. No respectable physicist would suggest otherwise and it appears the physicists quoted in the article were taken out of context, likely due to ignorance on your part. Our current understanding is that superluminal communication (such as teleportation) is impossible. Nothing so far even suggests otherwise beyond empty conjecture"

I'm sorry, are we in the spirituality forum? Did we wander there by mistake when I was talking? Because, I seem to recall posting in "Science and Space > Science & Technology. I hope you'll excuse me thinking in a logical and scientific fashion, as I thought that's where I was.

I'm not bashing people who believe in the soul. I'm merely expressing my honest opinion of the belief. It is NOT a belief to think that something DOESN'T exist. That's a neutral state. It's where we SHOULD begin. The burden of proof lies in showing that something does exist, not that something doesn't. I don't have to DISPROVE werewolves before I can be fairly certain they don't exist. I allow room, it is possible, but I doubt it severely. Again, I don't have to prove that the soul doesn't exist; it's the point of origin, where we should begin our reasoning. The universe is not designed for us. It doesn't NEED to have souls as an in-built function. So why have faith that it does? It's the same as having faith in anything, arbitrarily. You will have unfounded, mistaken, and often outdated beliefs (due to the function of "tradition for tradition's sake"). Go ahead and do it, if you want. But don't expect me not to criticise the illogic of it all. And don't take offense at this criticism either, for I don't mean it to be so, and I would offer the same type of arguments against anything I found lacking, not just "souls".

A pattern is not a soul. A pattern is merely matter and energy in all its forms combined into a living organism, or any complex life-like system (yes, even the lowly virus has a pattern), sometimes a human. If you think a pattern is a soul, then plants, muskrats, beavers, cats, trees, bacteria, etc. all have souls. It is not meant to describe anything "supernatural". Indeed, as a concept it specifically relates only to existing science. A pattern is not a conscious entity. Without a physical, a material matrix, it cannot be conscious on its own. When you die, your pattern will degrade, much like your body, which used to be the matrix. It will remain only as a ripple in the pattern of the entire universe.

Very interesting.

If you take two identical objects and weigh one of them because they are identical you've just learnt the weight of both of them.

Nothing special there except when you have the two objects behaving as a probability based on their weight. When you find the outcome of one of the probabilities the outcome of the other must match as their weights are always identical. So in effect you've just transfered the weight of one of them to the other.

Crazy stuff.

:su Nope don't think so.

In my opinion that's not what teleports do. Teleports teleport something from point A to point B, they do not copy and replace.

And you know what? In many ways I could nearly side with you on how you see this. But when you take a person and from birth bring them up into any religion it is hard to pull them out of those beliefs. I have always been what I am as my ancestors always found faith in the same. We all wonder and in may ways you can feel things must go a little deeper. But we are what we are.

This is not an adequate mindset for a conscious, sentient being. You must try harder. Doing what your ancestors have done, just because they did it, is not a justifiable stance; not logically. You've got to apply more reason to the things you believe.

Look at it this way, if you must. Why would an omnipotent and omniscient God create you with a drive to learn and understand, along with a capacity for logic and reason, if he didn't want you to use these things vigourously?

So when you teleport, you essentially kill yourself and let a clone of yourself come into existence? That doesn't seem like it would be worth it at all.

Yes, unfortunately; at least using the method described. It's a fairly useless discovery. I did suggest a least one use, cloning parts of oneself for replacement. You don't HAVE to destroy the original matter.
