This is something that I have been thinking of for a couple of years. Both Teleportation and Time Travel seem on the face of it to be hand in hand,
with all these dimensions that are supposed to exist along side our own. Im not a scientist, nor do I have any degree in Science or Maths, this is
only my own ponderous speculation. I am familier with the whole John Titor saga, but in my humble opinion that was a spectacular hoax. There have been
other threads posted on ATS about this subject matter, but I was wondering what us, the dear public have to think about this.
( Im rushing through this, so not very well written..sorry.)

Ive trawled through the internet looking for articles on this, and have found a few.
Teleportation goes a long distance
Howstuffworks: How Teleportation Will Work
All this though seems to deal with computers and super fast calculations.
And on Time Travel:

By now you have got the gist..(spelling?)! All mere speculation at the moment, excluding our esteemed John Titor of course! So, to get to the point of
the matter (excuse the pun, couldnt help it), I wanted to put forth my theories on both Time Travel and Teleportation.
Ok, simply, with Teleportation I see two possible ways to do this. This is at its most basic form though, Im not going to go into the maths of it, or
the quantum physics, but Im sure we all agree that it will have to do with matter. Now, like Star Trek we are going to stand in some "Phone Booth",
and some scanner is going to scan our entire genetic makeup, every single little atom and then it is going to transmit this data to the recieving end,
say, the moon. Once all this information is sent, what to do with the person still standing in the "Phone Booth", well that person would be
incinerated! On the other side of the moon, the "Phone Booth" will then essentially remake our body with all the information it has...(yes, this has
to be far in the future)..Bingo! You step out onto the moon. For me this raises ethical issues as im not into cloning, because thats what I think will
happen. Is it really you stepping out of the other side, or just a copy? If you are a atheist, then this poses no problem. So thats one theory.
The next involves a stupendous amount of energy and Im going to combine Time Travel and this form of Teleportation in one. You step into said "Phone
Booth" and some huge machine begins to generate a massive gravity field that begins to bend space. Essentially a door opens and you step through to
the moon. This involving the curvature of space of course. Now as I said before, space is multi-dimensional and therefor this method could be used for
time travel, why not just step onto the moon in 1969 and we could see for ourselves if old Neil was there! My beef with this though is that the amount
of energy needed to bend space would probably have to be huge!! More then the Sun! So Im thinking that if the machine was not run correctly then a
huge back fire could happen and our world and possibly this solar system would be obliterated!
Now this is only my musings, so I would love if anybody else could add to this discussion, as it is really interesting. Im sure that in 100 years we
will have highly advanced technology.( if we havent blown ourselves up ).so these thoughts might be reduntant. So from a 21st Century perspective, any
