Graphic below via Wikipedia: A channel of information and primarily conceived of (now) as a communication (ultimate security) tunell of instantaneous transport of information. I say, waiting for innovation to turn that information into any carbon based object living or inanimate.
I wish that he would get together with Don Eigler (physics of nanometer-scale structures) and realize the potential in utility to solve the Earth's transportation of food, first. Then further great changes like: the elimination of money in societies one by one as MTP pads are installed.
Molecular Teleportation pads; direct quantum information tunnels that send immense quantum packets of molecular data. I am saying: all of the information we can collect to the most finite degree of any caron assemblage that anyone would want - as in depth as the atomic structure of any carbon based object. Plant life, real meats you name it, directly to homes and distribution centers. Money becomes something to stuff in your walls for insulation.
At home the receiver gets a gourmet meal in seconds. A football for his son. A perfect replica of a full set of crystal champagne glasses. A new iholophone, they name it.
The Foreseen Industry of the Elemental Block:
Nothing is created from nothing. The elements we build and grow all that we need are here. We have found them. Processing plants can use large MTPs that gather our elements from throughout the world using worker aerial drones that pick-up what they need and deliver them back to Block processing refineries (very future high tech form of farming). Those refineries employ millions. They would send Elemental Blocks using larger industrial MTP platforms to the (Trekian) Replicators that are quantum connected to a block distributer. Dig, a home or industrial replicator needs this matter to “print,” all formed matter.
However the questions start; who pays for the initial labor that must be capitalistically exploited to begin production of everything? Like, who builds the aerial drones that collect elements? Who finds the elements?
Answers; we begin an investment in each of these technologies. We invest in new young scientists. We invest in education like never before. We have to do this. We use the money we have left, we put an expiration date on all of our cash and gold and anything we have used abusively in our past. That date on that cash is good for a trade up to the day with our replicators are ready. At first, that replication may be a large industrial unit at your local grocer. Later, on the street corner. Later, in every modern home. Later, in the center of every village and town on Earth.
We’ll find out who our geniuses really are, how many of them must have been passed over by society in our past. We’ll find our creative geniuses.
