Is teleportation possible with the fundamentals of quantum entanglement?

If you could capture every particle in your body and reconstruct it with an entangled version of your quantum and physical being in a different location?


Would you still maintain consciousness and maintain your "self" if you were reconstructed from scratch in a new location?

Update 2:

Basically have a complex network of sensors and computers that capture every single particle in your body and then entangle your essence and reconstruct it basically "rendering" you in a new place via a quantum computer

    Look into HUT (Holographic Universe Theory) Physics---It is rapidly gaining favor with high powered "Physics" folks.    Basically it  stipulates there is a "Higher reality" where all particles exist, but no SPACE, in terms of distance between the particles or position.

    Our 3D "Lower reality" is a sort of "illusion" of sorts, where we PERCIEVE certain wave attributes of the particles as a POSITION in a 3D space.----(Particles in our bodies too---so we are immersed in this)----This was first postulated by Einstein's Protégé, David Bohm, who used it to explain Quantum Entanglement---As the particles are in contact with each other in the higher reality--but may be light years apart in the lower reality.

    There is a LOT of "disturbing" evidence for HUT and also how Consciousness might be an important part of the universe too, explaining stuff, like the observer effect, etc. 

    With HUT, Teleportation might be achieved by simply changing the wave attributes of the particles of whatever you plan to send (cargo, Human etc.)  to match those in a different area of space.---Some kind of controlled modulated energy beam might be used to ZAP the object, changing it's wave attributes and----ZAP! it is instantly in another part of space.---This would be good for FTL travel too, to distant stars.

    Also would be good for apparent anti gravity to maintain a position of a craft in space above the ground---making short zap corrections back to place as gravity tries to pull it down---UFOs night do this instead of Anti Grav---which may not exist anyway.

    Check out YouTube Videos on HUT and the Book "Holographic Universe" by Michael Talbot----You won't think of matter the same way again.

    This question is in section “Science and math” but it should be in philosophy.

    Science fiction is not science. Only a tiny minority of ideas presented in science fiction are even possible.

    There has been notional teleportation at the individual particle level but at the scale of humans the sheer number of particles involved and the spatial relationships between them makes it an impossible engineering challenge imho, not just now but always.

    Yes, this is what happens during the cremation process.

    You will probably not be conscious during the process.

    It is not called a quantum computer it is called an Urn.

    The new location is called either Heaven or Shell - the S.

    Yahoo prudes won't let us use that word.

    Sshhh mommy is watching.

    We need to be clear what is meant by the term quantum ‘teleportation’. It is the transfer of quantum state information from particle A to ANOTHER particle B wherein the process destroys the state of particle A. This is described  by the ‘no clone’ theorem which prohibits both A and B from both possessing the same state.

    So, what it involves is entangling the particles, moving one to a different location, and using a third particle to aid in the transfer of the quantum state. Part of the information is transferred instantaneously by entanglement, and the rest of the information must be transferred classically - even by something like e-mail.

    So, extending the idea to teleport a human being  is probably theoretically possible, but require a technology so far beyond ours that it likely cannot ever be done in practice. That is assuming you are transferring an exact quantum state. From a metaphysical standpoint, it should be an exact duplicate in every possible way - indistinguishable from the original (although the originals state is destroyed ). From a pragmatic standpoint, it simply wouldn’t be worth it.

    From a more practical standpoint, you would be functionally equivalent if you were simply copied atom by atom with the presumption that exact quantum states are meaningless at the macroscopic level. Not an exact duplicate, but you likely wouldn’t know the difference.

    "Beam me up Scotty" kind of teleportation is not possible.  Something called uncertainty makes it impossible to map one for one the fundamental particles that would be teleported.

    There is a quantum entanglement model that some call teleportation.  But it isn't really.  

    To put it in Star Trek terminology.  Using entanglement, the real Capt. Kirk would be destroyed but his copy would appear wherever the teleportation sent it.  

    And I don't know how you feel about it.  But I certainly wouldn't want to be destroyed by any sort of teleportation scheme.  So I wouldn't call this entanglement scheme real teleportation.

    From what we know today in conceivable advanced physics, it is totally impossible to teleport. 

    Any thought of mass to energy think e=mc² +k

    One human can blow up a US State in energy, and then some.

    I am a Free Thinking Atheist, having decided that certain concepts are possible. Look up universal consciousness and panpsychism and the Star Wars religion of life force and the concept of energy frequencies of life. These things are far end outlandish theories with scant evidence, but more sensible than a timeless omnipotent invisible thinking entity. The Panpsychism concept may be "God".

    Now, "self" is either a tapped into universal consciousness as that far out theory proposes, or, it is an electrical energy storage in cells and the communication of energy in the brain. We could not recreate in such intricate detail, or if we could, instead it would be a human duplication and destroy the original. If we could do that, it would also mean we could transfer brain and consciousness from one living entity to another, so why recreate a person, and instead, use a better new one. We could live forever, changing bodies. We could farm humans and replace their consciousness. 

    So, we either never get to that point, or we learn a secret of life and consciousness and humans move to a whole new level, or we reach an immortality before we ever get to teleportation.

    That is my theory, of answering your question. Not everyone at Y/A are Russian teens playing election gaming.

    They have already teleported something like atoms but to teleport living matter is another story altogether. Just taking into account the movement of the Earth spinning is a problem but humans are so complex that it's many years away from teleporting life. There are also theories that it would not be the original you that was received but a replica and the original would be destroyed. That alone makes the scientists pause in their thinking.
