I suppose some day we might be able to convert matter to its component strings then back to entirely different matter, but at present it’s really far out science fiction. I think that the computers will have dispensed with organic life as an unnecessary contaminant well before they can manipulate strings.
Unless we can “integrate” with the computers. “Resistance is futile”.
I admit, that technology is far beyond our reach right now. But I saw a recent tv show about the possibilities of using “entanglement” in a productive way. If you can create a physical copy of an object “at a distance”, that would truly free us from bondage to the earth.
Just think of the ability to send water instantaneously to a planet millions of miles away.
A final point to note is that if I had set up a space station midway between Earth and Pluto and arranged for it to be transmitting two entangled beams of photons, one directed back to Earth another out to me on Pluto, I could instantly communicate because now we could establish a correlation between two equal length light paths. This is another consequence of Observer entanglement which is very important in its own right. All previous experiments with sensing entanglement at remote locations showed that although the quantas properties were correlated, no information could be sent, as the correlation only showed random changes from quantum uncertainty. The implication of Dopfer’s experiment, if confirmed, are very profound. They will force us to re-evaluate our understanding of special relativity which is currently believed to set a strict speed limit on all communication. This shows that pure information can be transmitted faster than light, and it does so without violating special relativity.
