Beaming oneself. How commonplace is that practice?
What I guess I'm asking is, is the support structure (the equipment to recieved and resleeve an Infomorph or AI, and the, uh, "Parking Lot" so to speak for bodies) fairly commonplace? Or is it largely the property of the most well-established colonies and habitats. The mental image I'm getting is of regular, commonplace, beaming among the H+ community that can afford it while outlying communities still require spacecraft to reach (though perhaps have the means to "beam out" an Infomorph)... is that about right?
Also, about how long does it take to have a morph designed. Again, the image I'm getting is similar to Transhuman Space, it's a complex messy process to produce the final product, a couple months, half to a full year or so for biological forms. In the meantime you're hanging about in a robot body or somewhere in the Mesh. Correct?
