Hi people.

 

This is my first thread of the year 2020.

 

Today I want your opinion about having civilian teleportation in the far future(eg early 24th century) and simultaneously still existing vehicles by the time. In other words, do you think that physical vehicles will still exist and will still be a sign of status when civilian teleportation become mainstream? Or will most people still use vehicles due to the fear of being teleported? Will people only use teleporters if it is proven to be 100% safe? I also think that warmholes could overcome the safety issue, after all a warmhole will not desintegrate your body into subatomic particles in order to be reassembled in other place, you would just walk throught it.

 

I think that programmable matter, replicator technology and antigravity will make possible to make a vehicle at any time at will. I think vehicles could be big enough to become flying mobile and temporary homes. Will people see this as an advantage over teleportation and cars would still exist?

I don't think teleportation like they have in Star Trek is possible. However, in the 24th century, it will be common for intelligent beings to interface with the world via remote-controlled bodies. The process of mentally uplinking to a distant robot or organic body could be subjectively similar to "teleporting" to another place.

Why not since all objects are madeup of atoms and molecules? If teleport inanimate things are possible why teleport breathing people would be impossible?

i do not think anything is impossible.

 

absolutely anything the human mind can dream of, can be created.

 

i am not sure if this is a "law" but if it is not, let me be the first to coin it. in any event, all molecules and subatomic particles in all matter, even living matter, are in a state of movement. this movement however can be somewhat predictable. the mapping of each subatomic particle and its precise location at the time of transport  and then the reassembly of each will be the key. if the issue is computer storage and size then that will be obviously be no issue with Moore's Law. the computer speed and capability will be no issue given time. the haldron collider and other current projects show us unbelievable things about subatomic particles and it is certain, not if, that we will be able to map and reassemble a blueprint of subatomic particles in the future. energy is the next issue. i believe we will need fusion to be realized for the appropriate amount of energy and this is also inevitable eventually. 

 

but a stepping stone will certainly be virtual reality, it will become so real feeling that people will certainly travel this way first.

I think even if it was possible teleportation would cost a LOT of energy. it would nearly always be cheaper to take a vehicle. If energy is basically free then you'd still have the question of: 

 

"If I am destroyed, then rebuilt somewhere else am I still me?" thing. 

 

Although If practical teleportation ever exists I think this philosophical issue will be ignored by the majority of people*.

 

(*At least until something goes wrong and you get cloned! Which is totally a feature not a bug, I'd worry about teleporting myself but I'd happily duplicate myself all the time.

I think Me and I would get along really well. We have a lot in common, plus we would be in wo different places)
