Reddit Takes On DNA Teleportation Idea Of Nobel Laureate Luc Montagnier

in technology, biology, education

Nobel Prize winner Luc Montagnier says DNA can be teleported. According to a recent paper he published "It was shown clearly that (from the results described in the paper) the water nanostructures and their electromagnetic resonance can faithfully perpetuate DNA information." 

The authors argue that DNA fragments can produce measurable electromagnetic field and DNA can be transmitted through electromagnetic waves and water. Considering this a possibility, DNA teleportation can be a reality. What if this is a misinterpretation of the experimental finding or an erroneous finding?

Luc Antoine Montagnier who was born 18 August 1932 in Chabris, Indre, France, is a French virologist and a shared recipient of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, for his discovery of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

His finding referenced above resulted in over 200 comments in the social media site,  Some of the redditors even compared the results to a  previous controversial study by another group on memory of water molecules.

The original paper can be accessed by clicking here.

Some interesting comments are reproduced below, he finds some supporters too.

"I'll believe it when it has been reproduced by multiple researchers in multiple labs. Until then a contamination error is too likely as explanation to jump to other conclusions."

"Two points: 1) yes, I do agree that it is most likely a result of error. 2) However, there are some theories that state that teleportation on very small scale can, such as protons/neutrons/electrons and small atoms. However, the more complex the object gets, the less likely that these atoms will 'teleport', and even less likely that they translate in the same direction. I forget what the theory is called. I want to say it's quantum tunneling, but from a quick glance on Wikipedia, it seems that this only applies to elementary particles that pass the wave-particle duality criterion. Please, someone more knowledgeable than I call me out if this is way off base."

"You dont think say someone like Montagnier has gone over the possibility of contamination already? Before writing an entire paper on this?

"I like how I clicked on the thread to read what the top poster on reddit had to say about it before reading what a ****ing Nobel Prize winner had to say about it. Jeez, you smart dumb internet posters crack me up."

Well, we have nothing to add, as reddit readers are learned and well-read, and when over 200 of them have expressed their opinions, another opinion may be meaningless.
