Why can subatomic particles teleport from one location to another but macro-sized objects can't?

It is not clear if we should characterize teleportation of macro-sized objects as being impossible. It is extremely more complicated than teleporting a subatomic particle. Teleportation of a particle, actually, is communication about the state of the particle. The receiver takes that information and modifies the state of a local particle to be in the same state as the original particle. In macro-sized objects, each macro-sized objects has billions of sub-atomic particles. Communicating the state of each sub-atomic particle, and recreating the state of each sub-atomic particle at the receiver would be prohibitively expensive.

Why is this here in the Algebra II circle? This is quantum physics.

Ava, this post is not in Algebra-II. This is posted to the Public circle.
