Teleporting Humans?

A recent article (1) seems to state the obvious — teleporting humans is difficult. Many have confused quantum entanglement with teleportation. The last human with a brain, over hundred years ago in Princeton, had the right idea — entanglement is a bit like left and right sock — it is not teleporting anything.

Humans have been fascinated by teleportation. It is a bit like somebody in jail imagining a grand escape. The non-remarkable biological construct, human, has been delegated to the space-time jail for ever. There she has been building castles in the air, nourishing an ego that lasts so little time, and exploring Science and Technology. What we know now is that to find anything new, you need 1.5 to 2 humans brains integrated into one, anything less is mediocre. We know of such a human only twice in last millennium and with that batting record, humans will cook in their limited greenhouse in less than a century. There is no teleportation, only ignorance, that permeates the human psyche. They run and run for something and then drop dead, they climb and climb without knowing what is on top and fall to their death, they kill others to please their Gods, and they get addicted to committing crimes. A lack of brain is problematic, and if we could find a brain in a human only twice in thousand years, God help us.

As the politicians, inventors, Mars going billionaires, crypto-promoting idiots who make a living on tax-payer subsidies, the conspiracy-theorists, the election-deniers, the planned economy lovers, the religious, the KGB agent who has less than a year on Earth but is fascinated by throwing missiles and grenades, the green oil companies, the great board members of pharmaceutical giants who convince the media to maximize their stock options, I would love to have teleportation.
