There was nothing included in aerodynamics ... The first wings are inspired by mouse heaters ... not birds, even less insects. These are the experiences that led to the bases we know today ...
And yet the adage of "more than the air cannot fly" has endured for centuries ... many "knew that flying was impossible" ... must we believe that birds did not exist at the time?
How Elon is not based on physical bases well enough understood there ???

On the other hand, there is no "well-understood" basis of the brain which makes it possible to envisage a consciousness associated with a machine, that is only based on the development of a science fiction literature and cinema (Star wars , blade runner, terminator, etc ...), and it is no more realistic than the time machine or the antigravitation of H G Wells, which were well imagined but never realized, and for good reason. ..
Yes I just mentioned it ...
