Just a thought... if teleportation is possible, what happens to your intellect when your atoms get scrambled and reassembled? What about spirit? Does that get emailed as well? Like an attachment maybe?
Dang! You mean your soul will be owned by Big Brother Gates, and you'll have to get authorization to get to Heaven from one of yesterdays fry cooks?
That's an interesting question. If you believe in remote viewing....the Ingo Swann stuff, not the Dr. Doom (Ed Dames) stuff.....you can read where there were several experiments done where the projection of thought was intantaneous....as in "at the same time" the experiments registered the results at the same time, in the US and Europe.
Not to hijack the thread, but Ingo did many government sponsored experiments in the early 70's describing the surfaces of Saturn, Neptune, etc.....all the scientists regarded him as a pure nutter at the time. As our planetary probes did their fly-bys during the last 30 years, his descriptions have been proven to be spot on.
Just something to ponder.....
the omni present characteristics implicated by aspects of quantum and string theory.... sound familiar to God's description of his state of existence. Perhaps the matieral world has its reality, based on the immaterial, omnipresent realm of quantum... and perhaps that is where the human soul enters the material human reality, from an ominipresent God, who is its source.
God may not only be less than a breath away, he may be permeating us at every level on a quantum level... and we, him. making a lot of sense, of a lot of religious hobblety gob...
God may be transcendent or "above" us, but not in the physical sense, in the quantum sense. Perhaps all the energy and existence of good and evil flow from a yin and yang balance, that is of God's nature, on a quantum level... and perhaps when we pass, we don't go to heaven... it may be a place, on a quantum level that exists right here, right now, where we live and breathe... we just cannot see it until we are "liberated" from the rather "heavy" atomic material reality, in which we are accustomed to swimming.
Wouldn't surprise me, if all that Jesus spoke of, was NOT of this world... but permeating it at every level, while being unseen.
After I'm dead and my spirit is on the way to Heaven (or Hell, but Heaven I hope) I sure don't want it it get infected with a virus some teenager created while he was playing with this "spooky action at a distance" teleporter thing.
Bones, is that you?
