    Abstract

    This article outlines a view of the quantum mechanical wave-function as the limit of classical mechanics. It argues that the region inside the wave-function is physically unrelated to that outside and represents a fundamentally different reality. A review of published evidence for this view is presented and it is argued that these ideas (and indeed more traditional physics and mathematics, even if the interpretation is incorrect) lead logically to the possibility of interstellar travel and teleportation though quantum mechanisms. Some of the practical implications of this are also explored.
