Science of teleportation

For most people, teleportation is the stuff that science fiction films are made of. In the last century, the wildly popular sci-fi television series Star Trek created the fantasy of human teleportation for a whole generation. Though the mystic disciplines of the world have always understood and played with the phenomenon of teleportation, modern science is only just beginning to understand that teleportation can be a real possibility in our dimension. However, there is a distinct and essential difference between the way science and mystery schools define teleportation. Science and teleportation Science defines teleportation as the process by which an object is dematerialized and essential information about its atomic structure is sent to another point in space, where the object is instantaneously ‘rematerialized’ or reassembled into its component atoms. Known as ‘quantum teleportation’, this process involves a phenomenon called ‘entanglement’ which is possible only on a micro-scale. Quantum teleportation is actually a process of replication similar to cloning or ‘biological faxing’, where the same information is used to create a duplicate exactly like the original object. The object itself is not teleported but only information about it is captured and used. The main difference between teleportation as science knows it, and more conventional forms of sending an object from one place to another, is that this is a process of instantaneous transportation. In 1998, for the first time, a team of researchers at California Institute of Technology successfully teleported a photon across a distance of approximately one meter. However, in the process, the original object was destroyed. Since then, a number of teleportation experiments have been performed. In 2006, physicists at the Niels Bohr Institute (Denmark), led by Eugene Polzik teleported photons across half a meter and used them to illuminate a cloud of atoms. This was considered a milestone, because it involved teleportation between light and matter, two different objects. By stark contrast, teleportation of whole objects and even people is a well-defined practice in the mystical tradition. Unlike in the scientific context, it is not just the vital information about the object, but the object itself which is teleported. Vedic science of teleportation The Vedic science of teleportation works on the premise that matter and energy are inter-convertible. Just as the pattern of sound waves in a telephone is carried by an electric current from the source to the destination, where it is ‘reconverted’ to sound, an object to be teleported is simply dissolved into energy at the source, and transported through space to be reassembled at its destination. Although we say ‘simply dissolved’, the complexity of the process and the mastery of mind over matter required here is unimaginable. Teleportation and other siddhis (spiritual powers) are gained only by a lifetime (or lifetimes) of arduous spiritual discipline. All materials cannot be teleported with equal success, as only certain materials can withstand the extreme rigors of being pulled apart at the atomic level, converted into energy vibrations, transmitted through space and then distilled into matter again. In fact, an authentic siddha will determine beyond doubt whether a diamond is real or fake, simply by teleporting it a few feet! An inferior stone with a weak molecular structure will be pulverized during the process of teleportation, and could never be reassembled again.
