Teleportaion requires the destruction of the original material, so basically if you teleport you are being killed on one side and being cloned in the other side, so the question is what happens to your soul if it has no body to go to. this is assuming that our sols exists in a different plain of existence.
Without the 'work' (or matter) of the flesh ruling over the energy of the soul.....

well, if you go with the theory that life itself, existance is a set of vibrations, and everything is made of energy in these vibrational frequencies, matter, and your "soul" then it seems like your soul would be transported with the matter. Theres 6 different kind of energies that can be detected using different kinds of equipment in the human body, I guess this combined is what you could interpret as a soul. I think a soul is like a cloud of energy and memories, our soul and can wander around or place ourselves in bodies, which are more like machines. Its interesting to note that some believe our brain does not actually create though, and that its more of a receptor, or radio, that picks up transmitions of thought from another source and our brain then interprets it.
Its also proven that intelligence can vary on the size of certain portions of the brain, this is why I think when we're dead our whole reality of intelligence changes, either its non-existant or on a whole different level. Intelligence I think is relative to the size of your brain and everyone is capable of the same thoughts, just like a computer, some of us have more RAM, and a faster processor.
So say we have a soul, its energy, it can float around and put itself inside bodies and think itself anywhere (look up astral traveling and try it if you feel like its your thing), (also people who have been rendered unconcious due to electric shock or whatnot have sometimes claimed to have seen their body from above, like floating over it before regaining conciousness, myself, I've seen the top of my head when waking up, it was pretty wierd, and I know i wasnt imagining it.) Ok so back on track here, so say everything is a vibration, and energy, and our "soul" is energy. It would seem that some sort of transporter that could de-essemble and re-essemble matter and energy could some how de-essembe your soul. I'm thinking its possible, but I think it would have to happen in less then a second, if time itself is even really real.
man, it gets me thinking, I believe science and the scientific cause for everything and I think even science could explain souls and whatnot, we say it doesnt but maybe we're just not trying hard enough.
But myself I believe in souls, past lives, incarnation, the whole learning process, the power of positive vs negative thought, etc etc. THis is my take on life I dont expect everyone to feel the same.
I'm rambling off topic, but I hope you get the point. I vote YES, for transportation of the "soul" possible.

I just saw a new twilight zone that had teleportation like this in it. The teleport operator would kill the original person upon confirmation that they reached the other side. Then something messed up and he didnt kill the original of one woman because they thought it didnt work.. until they got confirmation that she was successfully teleported. So for a time she existed in 2 places. Then I guess he killed the original, I forget..

I learned about intelligence and brain types in school actually. Einstein if you look at his brain, he actually had a significantly larger analytical/mathematics section then what was humanly normal. It was something like 10 times larger. Right there I think that says alot. We also looked at other people's brains and how they varied from an average brain. Just seems like a computer to me, some people got more speed, some people got more RAM, some people got a faster internet connection.
Its like, someone can be missing half a brain, foaming from the mouth, and extra chromosome. He can't multiply any number larger then 3, but it doesnt necessarily make us smarter then him. I have a feeling, just a feeling here... but massive brain damage and extra chromosomes don't carry on with you when you die. Some people are just genetically better, I think this is where intelligence truly comes from.
It kinda bothers me too, some people may talk to me in a really condescending way because they think they are "smarter" then me, but what they have in "intelligence", I think they often lack in wisdom and real life experience. I think a really intelligent person is the one who makes all the right decisions in life, not the one who can say... multiply 11 digit numbers in their head.
I think i'm done my rant, i hope I got my point across.
Larger portions of your brain can seemingly make you a brilliant person. Whatever the official "scientific" verdict is on this, I'm not sure, you can do the research. But I'm betting we still really don't know the answer.
I don't think we really will until we die.
Oh with the whole OOBE thing, apparently... I've just heard this, but you can just return to your body with just thinking of returning. You don't actually REALLY leave your body apparently, as I'm told. So your stuck there in your body but I guess you like produce like an image of your soul elsewhere to move around as it pleases, while the real one is inside your body. All i know is when I saw the top of my head that one time, i didnt understand what was going on but I knew enough that something was wrong, i wasnt in my body, and all I did was think of going back in my body, and sure enough I did.
And your right, it is a discussion board. I just try to state everything I have to say the best I can do avoid arguements. I know how they break out so easily on this board, ha. I just try to avoid it. But your right, it is a discussion board, and so lets discuss!
Anyways I'm off to bed, work kicked my ass this week.
