The Plinky writing prompt as posted in the site asks, “When teleportation is finally possible, where will you beam yourself first?”  This topic is just too appealing to skip over… and I do concur that it is a question which will garner different answers from the same person when asks during different times, but during this very minute – my first honest but probably not as wise instinct would be to say, “I’d like to teleport to go see a romantic interest.”

It’s funny, isn’t it?  For all our logic and good sense – and the presence of a hypothetical teleportation device – when we are romantically interested in someone (be it infatuation or love – who knows), all other thoughts go out the window, leaving the pressing need to be with or see the person we fancy.  During a different time – specifically during the down cycles where we do not have anyone we have our eye on, the teleportation device might be used for something more interesting – like visiting the Moon, Saturn, or Jupiter.

However, such is the inclinations of the human mind that when the heart speaks, there is a temporary shutdown of the mind, so to speak.  For all our scientific progress, we have yet to find a way to overcome ourselves and the frailties of human nature.  Interesting, isn’t it?
