So you may remember that, a few months ago, I started a thread on quantum teleporting being used on humans. It got a bit heated and I apologize for that. It's just that, every time I hear about some teleportation-related thought experiment, it just seems so inevitable. Plus, as I said several times before, David Darling's comments about teleportation - that, if it turns out to be merely difficult and not impossible, it will eventually become a reality - just keep echoing in my head.
However, I still have a few questions and would love it if someone could answer them.
1.) I was always under the impression that ALL interactions between particles stop at absolute zero. Is this actually not true? Do we have any concrete evidence that interactions are still going on at absolute zero? If so, is it theoretically possible to overcome this challenge?
2.) I understand that, currently, we can only teleport the state of a single atom. Isn't the next step teleporting its correlations with other atoms? Is that theoretically possible? Wouldn't it be the next big step towards macroscopic quantum teleportation?
3.) Are the internal reactions the only thing that would cause quantum decoherence if the object was in a vacuum?
I may have more later, but could anyone answer these?
