Teleportation seems like it would be an awesome superpower or technological advantage. Going from Point A to Point B without moving between the physical space would save you a lot of time. When you’re done with work you can teleport straight home and avoid the shitty commute. You could travel anywhere in the world instantly and avoid paying excessive airline fees. Seems like there are a lot of perks to teleporting until you realize the truth. When you teleport you’re rearranging atoms and molecules to recreate your own in a different place. You’re basically cloning yourself into a new location and destroying your original self in the process. The clone looks just like you, has all your memories and personality traits, and thinks that it is you. But it’s not you. It’s an imposter. You killed yourself when you teleported. Suicide shouldn’t be a viable form of transportation.
