Do teleportation spells actually work? From what I've heard they do, I've also heard of a famous person in Russia that has the ability to teleport to other planets and create a little bubble of an atmosphere around themselves
I am wondering if the term 'teleportation' is being mis-used or mis-translated somehow. While a physical movement of the self from one location instantaneously to another through magical means is indeed currently impossible, there are practices like astral travel/projection.
Ideas like astral travel have been practiced in a variety of ways to project ones conscious/spiritual self to other places or planes. I have come across stories as well of people who have been known to be in more than one place at a time. Paramahansa Yogananda's book 'autobiography of a yogi' mentions a monk who is reputed to have this ability. But such stories are extremely rare and limited to Guru's and other saints. Even then it is usually attributed to skills like remote viewing and astral projection.
