I read that article and it doesn't say the ASAF is leaning towards the human brain (clarivoyant teleportation) as the most likely canidate for
teleportation. ASAF just showed some interest in this dudes study and possibly funded him.
The Teleportation Physics Study was done by Eric Davis of Warp Drive Metrics. Its purpose -
"This study was tasked with the purpose of collecting information describing the teleportation of material objects, providing a description of
teleportation as it occurs in physics, its theoretical and experimental status, and a projection of potential applications. The study also consisted
of a search for teleportation phenomena occurring naturally or under laboratory conditions that can be assembled into a model describing the
conditions required to accomplish the transfer of objects."
The author broke down the various possibilities in this way:
Teleportation – SciFi: the disembodied transport of persons or inanimate objects across space by advanced (futuristic) technological means (adapted
from Vaidman, 2001). We will call this sf- Teleportation, which will not be considered further in this study.
Teleportation – psychic: the conveyance of persons or inanimate objects by psychic means. We will call this p-Teleportation.
Teleportation – engineering the vacuum or spacetime metric: the conveyance of persons or inanimate objects across space by altering the properties
of the spacetime vacuum, or by altering the spacetime metric (geometry). We will call this vm-Teleportation.
Teleportation – quantum entanglement: the disembodied transport of the quantum state of a system and its correlations across space to another
system, where system refers to any single or collective particles of matter or energy such as baryons (protons, neutrons, etc.), leptons (electrons,
etc.), photons, atoms, ions, etc. We will call this q-Teleportation.
Teleportation – exotic: the conveyance of persons or inanimate objects by transport through extra space dimensions or parallel universes. We will
call this e-Teleportation.
So p-Teleportation was just one of Eric Davis's many theoretical methods. Any sci-fi fan could have created a list akin to his =) Perhaps he has some
substance backing it up; the article didn't.
As for his analysis:
"P-Teleportation, if verified, would represent a phenomenon that could offer potential high-payoff military, intelligence and commercial
applications. This phenomenon could generate a dramatic revolution in technology, which would result from a dramatic paradigm shift in science.
Anomalies are the key to all paradigm shifts!"
That's a fancy way of saying if the military could teleport # with their minds they would make a lot of cash and it would be on the cover of
Popular Science...again common sense =)
Still this is a very interesting topic, so thanks for the article I_iam.
Also interesting how often we hear of the government showing interest, and sometimes funding, seemingly far out there studies. The CIA has shown alot
of interest in Remote Viewing (AP, OBE) which they pubically announced. This should make serious skeptics on ATS at least give these ideas a second
