Uber Teleportation

Overnight, entirely irrelevant and superseded will be what becomes of self-driving cars and flying-cars alike, when Uber unveils Teleportation! Coming any day now according to our Marketing department and they should know, right?

How hard can it be? Scientist have been working on teleportation since before Star Trek. We already have perfected what sounds a teleporter makes and how objects "glitter" in the teleportation "beam". The rest is even easier according to our best, expert marketeers.

We can raise a couple of $Billion easy from angel investors and venture capitalists that have nothing better to do with their money. TK can sell ice cubes to Eskimos. Just give him some glossy marketing brochures and slides showing the incredible profit potential.

It will revolutionize the transportation industry. No pollution. No road rage. No mid-air collisions. Costs cut to pennies on the dollar. Just have to work out a few minor kinks:

Transhumanist Satanist Globalists gone interdimensional !

Now they will ruin the past, present, and future simultaneously !

Not that any of that will antimatter by then.

Not right away.
  • Phase 1.0: Intercontinental
  • Phase 1.2: Global
  • Phase 1.5: Interplanatary
  • Phase 1.8: Intersellar
  • Phase 2.0: Intergalactic
  • Phase 3.0: Interdimensional
  • Phase 4.0: Time Travel
  • Phase 5.0: All of time & Space merge into the Omni-mind
Projected completion by the year 2025 (or was that 2525). Make your plans accordingly, Satan :p

You must be too young for the original Star Trek series.
Every time you teleport your atoms stay here. New atoms form the new you at the new location including memories.
You die every time, but you never remember it.
Lol kind of like driving for Uber

That is merely one theory of teleportation, which requires that the energy patterns from an object's (or person's) be gathered, recorded (into the pattern buffer) transmitted to the destination to be re-integrated as the original object. They never explained how it was possible for
  • one end of the process to work in an open field, without any equipment
  • transwarp teleportation to operate across interstellar distances
  • if someone died on an "away" mission why wasn't it standard procedure to "resurrect" them from the recording in the teleporter's pattern buffer, remembering everything in their life except the last day-or-two.
Don't mess around too much with physics Maven. You never know what might happen.

That makes me think about a minority theory in atomic physics, circa 1944-5. It held that the first atomic bomb explosion could start a chain-reaction in the earth's crust that had enough uranium and other heavy metals to be self-sustaining. That would consume the entire planet. :frown: Apparently, they missed a decimal point one way or another, but if they were correct ... :p

Another interesting theory is that humanity has already created several sub-microscopic black holes that immediately were pulled to the center of gravity at the earth's core. They are slowly consuming the planet from the inside, growing slightly larger every day, accelerating the process. Leading eventually to a doomsday unlike any predicted in the bible. :p

Relax Maven. It's just a Bissell.

Ahh yes, just one of many principals. If you have watched "Dark Matter" they use just the same technique with their clones to return from the dead without memories of the past couple days.

Star Trek did not explain how transporters worked because they needed a way to get the characters from one location to another faster than the shuttles. So poof technical magic, and it just works.

Since the sub-microscopic black hole would have a greater gravitational pull than the earth's, it wouldn't be so much them being pulled to the center of the earth's core as the earth being pulled over the black hole, going too far past the center, then pulling the earth back and forth and back and forth. What a ride that would be.

If you haven't read "The Hole Man" (1973): a short story written by Larry Niven and published in Analog science fiction magazine, you must.
I like the way you think.

Teleportations are suicide machines. How are you certain its really you at the other end? Its just a copy of you with memories up to the point you killed yourself in the output machine!

Yes and No. The method popularized by Star Trek required destruction of the original to complete the process. If the result is indistinguishable from the original then philosophically you can argue that is is not suicide at all. However, there is a strong argument for you position. Star Trek never examined this issue in the depth that it deserved. If the Star Trek method ever becomes reality then scientists, Priests, scholars, and demagogues might argue this point for decades or centuries.

However, the popularized Star Trek method is not the only possible method. There are others:
  1. A teleportation method that actually moved the original without any harm. This might be possible using Quantum Entanglement, folding space, extra dimensional travel, or moving between alternate realities. If your not familiar with these theories then it might be helpful to think of them as "magic".
  2. What if the Star Trek method could produce one or more copies without destruction of the original? After completing the mission the copies are either retrieved or left in place to live out their lives. Star Trek itself examined this possibility. "Second Chances" was the 150th episode of TNG, the 24th episode of the sixth season. In this episode, directed by LeVar Burton, Commander Riker comes face to face with an exact duplicate of himself, created years earlier by a transporter phenomenon.
Well just have to wait and find out what method of transportation is actually implemented by (Uber) teleportation before we start to seriously worry about those moral, ethical, philosophical, and practical questions. Meanwhile, it's fun to speculate. :biggrin:
