Thinking about superconductors, I was wondering whether a truly earthly room temperature material is impossible for the universe.

What if you can bootstrap this material by using ever increasing environments that get closer and closer to an environment unseen by the universe.

Like any cell, inside will have a differential to the external environment. So why not make the next generation of superconductors inside the previous. Inside a superconductor the magnetic and electronic properties would be starting to get away from the known universe.

Of course this is all high altitude blue sky speculation because of how hard would it be to make reaction, and forging chambers out of working superconducting materials.

       That means an Event Horizon, which makes things kind of awkward ...

       Err, if it was superconductive would it not conduct outside conditions in the case of electrons and those pesky phlogistons into the box?   

       Seems more like a super-non-conductor is needed. (narrowly avoids Portsmouth symphonia joke).

       Instead of making the next generation of superconductors inside the previous, why not make it over to one side, just over there a bit. No, a bit further.

       [Bigsleep] Yes, if it helps material science achieve a proper room temperature superconductor.   

       [8th of 7] qualifier - before.   

       Superconduction is a rare state and must generate an equally rare environment. Anything manufactured in this environment that retains and amplifies or, as [not_morrison_rm] points out, negates the ability will be even rarer.   

       Using recursion, ultimately there would a material and its environment made that passes the "everything under the sun" invent horizon.

       I always find it worrying when people agree with me.

       The things said from the jest.
