For sure it is interesting. From a science fiction point of view, author Wil Macarthy dream of a future where teleportation was the main daily transportation, as well as space and interstellar travel. People generally avoided the implications of using teleportation, which was you were destroyed by a complete copy emerges from the endpoint of your teleportation. Copies of you were possible, but illegal. If caught you and your clone were simply run through the teleporter at the same time and the united being emerged at the endpoint. Travel between the stars at instant speed bacame possible through EPR entanglement, but the endpoint teleportation device had to have been hauled through space at slower than light speed. After that whizzing between the stars became a normal travel feature.

Subject: Survey of Philosophers

I came across this survey of various professional philosophers. &nbsp;It is interesting that two mutually contradictory opinions are the leading positions among philosophers (according to Bruno's result):

Mind: physicalism or non-physicalism?Accept or lean toward: physicalism981 / 1803 (54.4%)Accept or lean toward: non-physicalism521 / 1803 (28.9%)Other301 / 1803 (16.7%)




Teletransporter (new matter): survival or death?Accept or lean toward: survival626 / 1803 (34.7%)Other610 / 1803 (33.8%)Accept or lean toward: death567 / 1803 (31.4%)
