Replication


I wanted to know what people think about replicating foods and materials like in star trek. I know this might sound way out there but it is totally plausible. If we could find a way to manipulate the atomic structure of say a rock, then in theory you could reorder the atoms into something like hydrogen or oxygen. This would give you the ability to turn any one thing into any other thing.

The only problem with this is the amount of energy and the advanced technology you would need to accomplish this. One way would be to use a matter/anti-matter reaction. Just like in star trek.

This could possible end world hunger. Humans wouldn't have to worry about running out of resources because we could use anything from moon rocks to space particles. Also, people who don't eat meat because it comes from killed animals wouldn't have to worry. The meat would be from replication and no more animals would have to suffer.

It might be decades or centuries off, but it could revolutionize everything.

Matter can not be created or destroyed we all know. Now, if the atoms that make up the rock are not the same atoms that represent water how would you change a rock into water?

Granate =
SiO2 72.04%
Al2O3 14.42%
K2O 4.12%
Na2O 3.69%
CaO 1.82%
FeO 1.68%
Fe2O3 1.22%
MgO 0.71%
TiO2 0.30%
P2O5 0.12%
MnO 0.05%

Water = H2O

B/C granite does not contain the H atom water cannot be made from a rock without creating H which cannot be done.

What I'm saying is that if you seperate the protons, neutrons, and electrons, you could add or take away the amount you need to make a different molecule. This is only theoretically possible and probably won't be done for many years if possible. We just don't know yet.

Through a nuclear reaction, yes, it would be possible. However, the half life of non-radioactive elements is ridiculously long, so atoms won't be decaying into enough hydrogen to create water for ages to come.

Nuclear reactions are possible, but as you get into smaller atoms, they become more stable, thereby making it nigh impossible to to produce hydrogen through that method.

So, it's theoretically possible, but theoretically possible and physically possible aren't always the same.
