UPDATE: the teleportation described just transfers information to another photon, no photon actually travels the distance SO the collection of cells at the receiving end duplicate the original, not replace it. Two souls for two copies? The original photon stays where it was, another photon receives the information via quantum entanglement.

I'd have to say no, considering souls are a myth anyway. NO ONE has a soul.

Hmm...and I just ate filet of sole at a restaurant last week

Best Answer

that's a fish, not a soul

Tricky - you misspelled it "sole" then changed it. Tricky.

Best Answer

Yes - at the moment that it recognized that it had been teleported and began making seemingly independent decisions. It's soul could not then be the same soul in the context to which you refer because its life experience would be different (as would the original copy whose life would have different experiences.<br />
<br />
Think of this experiment already done. A photon is split and, using mirrors, is directed along two different courses inside a box. As the (seemingly) two photons are moving around, each has a different probable future and probable past. Join them up at the end again and you again have one photon that has three pasts. (One photon's, the other photon's, and the spooky-at-a-distance observer who was always present (through entanglement) though unseen by us 2 or 3 dimensional creatures.<br />
<br />
This is very much in-line with the split-universe theory. When a decision is made, the universe splits and copies go forth in their own directions depending on their expectations. Neither can see the other, yet they are still entangled.<br />

Who knows how it would work for living things. There is a very large difference between moving photons, atoms... and an entire human body and all it's cells. We do not even understand how the brain really works and if we have a "soul" or if it is just electric connections.

Remember the Star Trek Next Gen episode where 2 Will Rikers were created by transporter accident?

You say "Merkabah", I say "Merkabow" :D

we are just brains in bags of water stop being all high mighty about how super important the human race is. So we got lucky by pure dumb natural selection...now suddenly we have souls and purpose in life beyond simple survival? Surely you can see the arrogance in the human train of thought? This is defeat by victory....the irony!<br />

We're just complicated Lego with wires! Put em back together and your just that. If you couldn't do that, you wouldn't be you but multiple things!

Best Answer

I believe cats and other animals have souls. Are you accusing me of making THEM "all high mighty"? If you don't believe in a soul the answer is no. When you deny souls and therefore god who is being arrogant? You! To presume only you are "right".
