Stories about mysterious travels are not uncommon. Even though these teleportation cases are more likely to be just myths, they still make us think whether the idea of instant traveling to a different location has some substance.
It is interesting that for a long time, scientists have been developing a theory of teleportation, the phenomenon when an object is moved from one place to another in the shortest amount of time. And in 2011, this mysterious phenomenon started manifesting itself again.
At the beginning of 2011, a French scientist Luc Montagnier, who received the 2008 Nobel Prize in medicine, shocked the scientific world. He managed to beam a DNA sample from one test tube to another. Two separate test tubes were placed next to each other. One had pure water, and the other contained a DNA molecule.
The test tube containing the DNA molecule was irradiated. Incredibly, after less than a day, the DNA was found in the test tube with water! Montagnier is convinced that this is only a first step in developing the theory of teleportation.
Interestingly, in addition to radiation, a lot of stress or negative circumstances experienced by a person can have a similar effect. And most teleportation cases of the people who claimed to travel instantly to another location are related to these events.
4 Most Famous Teleportation Cases
1. Transported soldier legend
One of the Mexican manuscripts contains a story about the sudden appearance of an unknown soldier on October 25, 1593, in Mexico City. According to his story, it was found that his regiment was stationed in the Philippines, 9 thousand miles from Mexico!
The soldier claimed that in just a few seconds before his mysterious travel, he had been on guard duty at the palace of the governor of the Philippines in Manila and incidentally became a witness to the murder of the governor. The man could not explain how he ended up in Mexico.
The Inquisition sentenced the man to be burned alive. It is believed that just a few months after his execution, the soldier’s story was confirmed by merchants who arrived from the Philippines.
2. The aircraft that disappeared
Another mysterious event occurred in the Belorussian Military District in 1982. During the flight of the MiG-21 aircraft which took off to monitor the weather, it disappeared from radar screens. The search for the missing aircraft produced no results.
But, to the astonishment of the aviators, the next morning, the fighter had safely landed on the runway of the airfield. It was a complete mystery, but for the pilot, the scheduled flight lasted 12 assigned minutes.
3. The disappearance of Dr. Geraldo Vidal
In early May of 1968, near the town of Chaskomus (Argentina) right in front of many witnesses, the car with Dr. Geraldo Vidal and his wife had vanished into thin air. Friends and relatives began searching for the car. But neither the doctor nor the car could be found.
Two days later, the man made a call himself. He was calling from the Argentine Consulate in Mexico City, which is located 6,400 miles away from the place where his car had disappeared. The Vidals could not explain their mysterious disappearance.
However, they claimed to have seen a very bright light flashing before their eyes right before finding themselves on a completely unfamiliar route.
4. The Italian man in New York
A similar case occurred in 1999 with a young Italian man, who was described by American police as mad and was taken to a psychiatric hospital in New York. The young man was not dressed for the weather and “intimidated” subway passengers by talking to them in an unknown language.
However, further investigation revealed that the young man was sane and healthy but very frightened. The young man claimed that a few minutes earlier, he was coming down the trail to the Tiber River. According to him, when he looked at the water, instead of his reflection, he saw a bright light, and a moment later, he was lying on the cold floor of the American subway.
Hoax or involuntary teleportation?
These teleportation cases are not unique. Of course, they are probably just myths, but some scientists seem to take the idea of involuntary teleportation seriously. Researchers have come up with a number of theories to explain this phenomenon.
The first one was created in 1899 by a science fiction writer Ambrose Bierce from the U.S.
He explains his theory by saying “our space is like a knitted sweater: it can be put on, although, when you look closer, a sweater is full of holes. Suppose, an ant has ended up on the sleeve of the sweater. When it accidentally falls in between the loops, it will find itself in a completely different world, where it is dark and stuffy, and instead of the usual fir needles, there is warm, soft skin … “
The second theory, developed by Albert Einstein, relies on the existence of a fourth spatial dimension – time. According to this explanation, space periodically opens the black holes, through which objects from other worlds can penetrate into our universe.
Einstein’s theory has long been utilized by the ufologists. They claim that this is how mysterious alien aircraft objects appear on our planet. Ufologists often associate mass human abduction and disappearance events with teleportation, claiming that extraterrestrials have long mastered this technique, if not the ability to open black holes at will, or at least their detection.
Sounds like a plot of a sci-fi movie, doesn’t it?
According to the third theory by Ralph Harrison introduced in 1938, teleportation follows the laws of meteorology. For example, in the area of the Bermuda anomalous zone, the teleportation areas move under the influence of the Gulf Stream.
“These events can occur in the atmosphere. When the channels open between worlds, living beings and objects travel through them to a parallel world and come back. Imagine yourself … being a caterpillar that has fallen on a man’s shoe.
Suppose you need to get to the other shoe, a journey through the leg, pelvis, and the other leg which will last at least a day, and it is also dangerous because you can easily fall off. But here is a man who accidentally crossed his legs so that you ended up on the other shoe, having made an instant journey in a matter of a day! “– explains Ralph Harrison.
However, although it is too early to draw any conclusions, recent scientific developments have brought us considerably closer to unlocking the world of one of the greatest mysteries. Will it be possible to learn to teleport in the future?
To the date, there is no evidence that teleportation is possible. We probably won’t be able to master the art of teleportation anytime soon, but it’s still fascinating to think about the very possibility of it, isn’t it?
