    Well we currently have experimental 3-D printers that can "print" parts of organs (kidney, etc..) and living human tissue and bone.

    The next step might be a replicator of sorts for "simple" items like pure elements from the periodic table?

    You wouldn't need to send the full information for a human. You'd only need to send the differences from someone already there. Sending the same person back and forth several times would be even less data.

    (2.6*10^42 bits) / (4.85*10^15 years) = 1.582*10^10 Gbps

    68MB per 31GHz clock? Working back with their math, they are encoding a 2^29 bit parallel bus into the datastream. That's pretty incredible. There has to be a math error in the report somewhere, no?

    Then you have a problem with original copy that you have to destroy at the source, just like in movie: The Prestige (2006)

    We are the Borg. You will be assimilated. Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is Futile.

    Oh they're already here, in many guises!

    Perhaps as Prii owners we're resisting more than most, but eventually we too will be assimilated. Hybrid pickup anyone? :cautious:

    Hold on to that article. Some day it will be a testimony to how wrong we can be about some things. Before saying something can't be done, make sure you double check with all other civilizations in the universe.

    (On the other hand, when 13 of 97 shows up, we might use this to prove that we have nothing worth assimilating.)
