Sci Fi-Genius and Stupidity

Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. This is was what one of the greatest minds in the field of Science told the world and not without reason.

The site in which you are reading this, the call I got to work for it, the pool of information I delved into, everything was predicted. The invention of the internet, the ability to sit at home in pajamas and yet, shout out to the world what you want to, conduct your business with more communication and less commute, he told the world about such a future way back in 1976. Arthur C Clarke, one of the greatest authors of science fiction, predicted globalization of world with the help of the internet. What’s more surprising than this is the ‘newspad’. A device akin to today’s ipad that lets you read the news anywhere you want by displaying it on a small screen that unlocks by a digital code!

Jules Verne, the favorite author of most sci-fi fans predicted something as big and beautiful as Lunar modules. He took the readers From the Earth to the Moon and introduced space travel.

Let’s look at the inventions the world probably would not want to see. The Iron Man suit, or more generally jet packs; I totally agree its super cool to just fly away but just imagine if you meet with an accident, crashed into the 20th storey of a skyscraper. I don’t think I have to explain the rest of the scene that would follow!

These are the ones that did come true, great minds predicted some insanely crazy inventions in the field of Science and Technology and the world is a better place today with those inventions. Then there are some that we would adorn our super heroes with, see and enjoy.

The only difference between genius and stupidity is that the former has a limit. The same brilliance that said these words gave the world relativity. What’s stupid to you need not be the same to me and what is stupid today could be genius tomorrow!
