Picture this, they have shown in the laboratory, supposedly, that electrons or
atoms can be teleported. Then again, they had "cold fusion" ten years ago.
Anyways, as soon as we get past the barriers of space-time in a similar manner
as teleportation, we could teleport mass for energy rendering, probably a long
time before something like that would be safe for yourself or a houseplant.

When I say extra-dimensional, I mean representing elements of dimensions beyond
those we encounter comprehensibly every day, one through four. One, two, and
three dimensions are x, y, and z, and four is time.
Theoretically, no matter where in space-time, there is an infinite number of
higher dimensions. So, at an arbitrary coordinate of (0,0,0), at arbitrary
time 0, there is a fifth dimension ranging from -oo to oo, where oo is scalar
infinity, and that coordinate in space-time might be at any coordinate in the
fifth dimension. etcetera. This could mean that there are an infinite number
of alternate space-times for each point in space-time.
I write this and feel it is true, intuitively, but have no proof, and the
system is ill-defined.
Alternately, there is only one space, and for that matter, only one point in
time, now. I believe this is not the case.
Once this system is better defined, and we have developed tools to interact
with and work with it, then a large variety of "special effects" will be able
to be tapped.
