It seems teleportation requires that the original subject be destroyed (disassembled, transfered and reassembled). If that where not the case you could have the original subject remain where it is and a "perfect" copy of it at the destination. Which is what I believe would happen, only the original would cease to exist.
Actually it does not seem that way at all.
I do not know what idea of teleportation you have in mind but the the teleportation that is currently possible does not in any way require the original subject to be destroyed since only a copy
is made of it. In the same way that photo copying a piece of paper need not imply that the original subject be destroyed since we are merely making a copy of it. In fact much in the same way in which a photo copier operates, for teleportation all that need be done is to take all of the information of the subject at hand, every single bit (or rather quibit
, in the currently possible example), and then recreate an exact copy of it by using the information to assemble to an exact
degree the same order of the arrangement of particles using an peripherally provided source of particles. Although in reality, we currently only perform this with a single photon.
