The idea of teleportation has always been popular in science-fiction literature. But like some other technologies, teleportation might actually step from fiction into reality. Recent developments in quantum theory and relativity physics have been making progress in exploring the concept of teleportation for some time now.

Numerous teleportation breakthroughs have already been made today. For example, the team of Professor Rainer Blatt at the University of Innsbruck was able to accomplish teleportation of atoms for the first time in history. Their results were published in the journal Nature (1). The team was able to transfer properties of one particle to another without any physical link. In particular, quantum states, such as atom’s energy, motion, magnetic field and some other physical properties were transferred in this case. This was only possible due to strange behaviour that occurs at the atomic scale, called entanglement, which Einstein once called “spooky action.”

In another study also published in Nature, a University of Queensland team performed teleportation with solid state systems (2), using the same phenomenon of entanglement as in the previous case. Quantum teleportation has been replicated countless times by scientists all over the world.

All of the above experiments refer to quantum teleportation, and since humans and everything else consists of atoms, it may be possible that one day we will be capable of teleporting full physical objects. But according to some governmental studies, this may have already been done. “It became known to myself, along with several colleagues both inside and outside of government, that anomalous teleportation has been scientifically investigated and separately documented by the Department of Defense” says Eric Davis of Air Force research laboratory (3).

A Chinese paper published in September 1981 in the journal Ziran Zazhi (Nature Journal) tilted “Some Experiments on the Transfer of Objects Performed by Unusual Abilities of the Human Body” (Shuhuang et al., 1981) reported that ‘gifted children,’ were able to perform teleportation of small, physical objects, like watches, horseflies, micro-transmitters, paper and more. These experiments were reportedly done under both blind and double-blind conditions and there were present the researchers from Department of Defence (3).

More research from 1990 by the Aerospace Medicine Engineering Institute in Beijing showed similar findings, using high-speed photography to capture the transfer of test objects. (3)

In all of the examples, it was reported that the test specimens remained in their original state after teleportation, including the insects.

According to Eric Davis: “The Chinese papers are all extremely interesting and very well written, and they show photographs and schematic diagrams of the various experimental setups. The experimental protocols were explained in lengthy detail, and through data and thorough data and statistical analysis were presented in the results.” (3)

The experiments showed that:

  • Different methods, different sealed containers and specimens were used by different research groups
  • The times required for teleportation ranged widely from a fraction of a second to several minutes.
  • The high-speed photography recorded melding or blending of test specimens with the walls of sealed container
  • The results were repeatable

“Some researchers state that it is necessary to invoke a new physics, which somehow unifies the human consciousness (i.e., physics of consciousness) with quantum and spacetime physics, in order to understand psychic teleportation and related PK phenomena. The researchers were amazed by their repeated results, and were barely able to fathom the altered “state of being” that test specimens underwent during teleportation. The results of the Chinese Teleportation experiments can simply be explained as a human consciousness phenomenon that somehow acts to move or rotate test specimens through a 4th spacial dimension, so that specimens are able to penetrate the solid walls/barriers of their containers without physically breaching them.” comments Eric Davis.
