I minored in math at college

Let's take the old saying, comedy is tragedy plus time.

c = r + t where c is comedy, r is tragedy, and t is time.

Subtract c.

0 = r + t -c

Subtract t.

-t = r - c

As you can see, tragedy minus comedy is negative time. Yes, I just invented time travel.

Combine this with distance = rate * time and you might get teleportation too.

You might also achieve productive results synthesizing this with the ongoing synthesis of "time flies while you're having fun" and general relativity. Early research indicates that FTL travel will either be really fun or a complete drag.
