teleportation - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
The rocket changed distance by playing with time. Time travel, it turns out, is not a thing because the present moment is all we ever have. But if you can manipulate time then you can change spacetime, which is the same thing as distance. These new rockets were a kind of teleportation, yet they folded spacetime and popped out in a different place. It was kinda neat.
Teleportation came when we understood how the quantum level relates to the entire being. All matter is both particle and wave, only for the longest time we could only perceive gross structures as the particles. Once we broke through that barrier we learnt how to boost the wave form of a mouse across a laboratory. It took a few tries to get it right, there were a few splinchings at first and some never arrived at all. Then one fine sunny day a whole mouse reappeared, not even a shortened whisker. Soon we were sending our furry friends to every country in the world. That was so long ago, now it even works across large ranges in space. Mostly we are beaming food for the crews or making emergency staff replacements. Last month, for the first time ever, we beamed an entire warship into a region to support a peace keeping ship facing hostility from one of the "bug" races. I recon you could have heard the cheers on Earth from Mars when it reappeared in tact.
