EDITOR'S SUMMARY AND COMMENTS
If you are going to learn how to perform teleportation, begin with something small and light. At the Institut fĀr Experimentalphysik, University of Innsbruck, scientists have accomplished the teleportation of photons. The concept of not being able to determine both position and other quantum properties with precision, provides an experimental challenge when working with quantum unit such as a photon. The experimenters provided a clever scheme for determining the quantum states of a split photon and having, in effect, then been able to determine the state of one of these "entangled" photons, and thereby effect the state of the distant photon. As stated by the authors in their conclusions: "In our experiment, we used pairs of polarization entangled photons as produced by pulsed down-conversion and two-photon interferometric methods to transfer the polarization state of one proton onto another one. ... The teleportation scheme could also be used to provide links between quantum computers. Quantum teleportation is not only an important ingredient in quantum information tasks; it also allows new types of experiments and investigations of the foundations of quantum mechanics."
Comments: An author said that those who claim to understand quantum mechanics are not honest. As an honest editor, it is proposed that an explanation for this unusual quantum event could be derived from the existence of an aether, the speed of transmission of information in the aether as being many times the speed of light, and a new concept of conservation. Therefore, when considering entangled particles, consider them as being a dynamic construct of the aether such that the creation of one such particle implies a second particle where such particles are in communication at superluminal velocities and that such particles have their quantum nature conserved. That is, if one particle has one "polarity," the other particle immediately exhibits an opposite "polarity." This editor can understand superluminal communications better than quantum physics.

DP: And here we see the common phenomena of the establishment renaming something so as to convince the unenlightened they have discovered something new. This so-called "entanglement" is nothing other than sympathetic vibration. Here is McGraw-Hill's definition of the phenomena: "The driving of a mechanical or acoustical system at its resonant frequency by energy from an adjacent system vibrating at this same frequency. Increasing the dampening of a vibrating system will decrease the amplitude of its sympathetic vibration but at the same time widen the band of frequencies over which it will partake of sympathetic vibrations." McGraw-Hill Concise Dictionary of Science and Technical Terms, 3rd edition, 1983? And here is a definition from Dictionary of Musical Terms, circa 1901. "Sounds are "communicated" when they are merely conveyed from one sounding body to another, and this can take place in a noise as well as a musical sound. Sounds are "excited" under two circumstances: when a body which is sounding and that to be excited have the same note and the vibration of one produces sympathetic vibration of the other, the bodies are mutually called "reciprocating", while of the vibration of one produces its harmonics in the other, the latter is said, with regard to the exciting body, to be "resonant". According to Helmholtz, "timbre" or "quality" depends on definite combinations or certain secondary sounds or harmonics with a primary or fundamental sound, and such combinations he calls "sound colours". And this definition of "sympathy": "The mutual relation between parts more or less distant, whereby a change in the one has an effect upon the other." from Blakiston's New Gould Medical Dictionary, The Blakiston Company, 1949; 1st edition. So we see once again there is nothing new under all these vast claims and proclamations of scientific attainment. A little research on the web could have saved somebody a lot of loot. I hope these guys weren't spending our tax money on this sleight of hand research. -- Dale Pond DaleSVP@ipa.net Delta Spectrum Research Vibration Research Institute and Laboratories http://www.SVPvril.com Applied and Theoretical Sympathetic Vibratory Physics.
