How is no one referencing this?
"The Fly" (1958)
Our cells are always renewed, and the new cells are just a copy of the previous ones, sooooo.... it doesn't matter?
So, yeah, let's use teleportation, knowing that we are not the "original" to begin with.
Have a good day/night
but, i did
When you ask that question you get into philosophy such as what make a person that person? Is it just genetics, chemicals, electric signals that make a person or is it something deeper? Also could science quantify that something deeper (a soul/etc) to replicate or etc? Though this argument I suppose disappears based on the teleporting technology (Does it break down and teleport/rebuild molecules elsewhere? Could we go into immersive VR and control a clone at a different location which wouldn't be teleportation per se but the easiest solution? Is it like how some scientists describe wormholes and such as being able to fold space then rip a hole to go from a to c instead of having to go from a to b to c?) ?
Make sure there's no fly sneaking up into machine
If it did, and the copy had the same personality, you would never notice?
Given how crazy peoples ideas about consciousness are nowadays, I sure as hell wouldn't take anyone else's word on whether its safe or not... I would want to judge it for my self, and if I wasn't privy to the relevant info or if I didn't like what I learned, I definitely wouldn't use it..
That sounds fine until you realize aging is due to dna copying a copy multiple time. The cell copied or rather the dna copy contain some error or degraded over continuous copying. So multiple teleportation would have the tendency to make you older or develop cancer as cancer is developed when a mishap happen in dna copying. Chances of cancer is higher in the cells that replaced regularly than those that do not so if teleporting just copy then there is higher chance of cancer. There are also parts of the body that will remain from embryo to death and some things not yet discovered by science. There still a lot scientists do not know about the human body .
Hopefully, by the time teleportation is a regular thing medical science would also have improved.
if tgose rech exists. . . and it is affordable. . .
food prices will be freaking cheap,
I bet most of price would be licensing fees. Pepsi India did sue farmers because they grow their patented variant of potatoes.
This is assuming that teleportation is so piss poorly understood that it still has the same error effects that our cells copying does. I sincerely hope that if we do figure out how to teleport, our "clone" self that appears on the other side is a PERFECT copy, not a NEARLY perfect copy like what happens to use just by living and aging.
Copy mangakas/authors so they can work on several series at once!
Guys, just read Larry Niven.
