Saint Posted June 3, 2005 Share Posted June 3, 2005 I certainly wouldn't want to be the first human test subject to take that ride. You remember what happened to that baboon in 'The Fly' eh. Turned inside out and all. I think that if there ever is a teleportation device it would be impractical and raise too many safety concerns to use a "break down the atoms, reconstruct the atoms" approach. With all the variables that would be involved in properly coverting the mass to energy, energy to mass and reconstructing the person to EXACT specifications (taking into account the variableness of biology) I just don't know if I would trust a computer to do it all. With my luck it would all be powered by Microsoft and the teleporter would cause an illegal operation while putting me back together. I'd feel much safer with a teleporting device that would simply open a hole in space that would completely envelop me and then close. That way I would be able to travel instantaneously while staying in one peace. Also I would think it would be far less limited in its range as it wouldn't be dependant on the machine's ability to transmit energy over a long distance.
