Episode 9 – Sleep Studies

This has no particular format; it’s just correcting or updating anything in the show we didn’t get a chance to fully talk about or things we had on the tips of our tongues and couldn’t get out as we recorded. As always, feel free to comment, and we will address stuff in future shows! Enjoy.

Teleportation definition 

  1. A fictional transfer of matter or energy from one point to another without traversing the physical space between them.
  2. Often paired with time travel.
  3. There is no known physical mechanism that would allow for matter teleportation.
  4. Teleportation cannot be instantaneous because you can not travel faster than light. 

Philadelphia Experiment


Teleportation in Harry Potter Series:

  1. Harry Porter and the Goblet of Fire
  2. Foo Network: fire place teleportation
  3. Portke
  4. Kings Cross Train Station: Platform Nine and Three Quarters

Early examples of teleportation in science fiction 

1. The earliest recorded story of a “matter transmitter” was Edward Page Mitchell‘s “The Man Without a Body” in 1877. Not to be confused with the 1956 B-sci-fi film. 

2. 1897 novel To Venus in Five Seconds by Fred T. Jane. Jane’s protagonist is transported from a strange-machinery-containing gazebo on Earth to planet Venus – hence the title.

Albert Einstein won Nobel for his theories about the photoelectronic effect. 


Albert Einstein described his most famous formula in the forth paper he published.

Einstein called it: spooky action at a distance. 

Quantum entanglement was first recognized by Einstein, Podolsky, Roson and Schrodinger.
