Apparent illogicality sometimes turns out to be a futuristic projection? Discuss.
What appears to be illogical today often turns out to be a reality tomorrow. This has mostly been the trend with scientific inventions. For example, the camera, gravity, sun, moon, stars etc. The thought of humans being able to fly was once an illogical thought that the Wright Brothers had. It later turned out to be a reality in the form of airplanes and parachutes. Similarly, the baseless thought of talking to people over long distances by Graham Bell made him invent the telephone. The mobile phone is yet another version of taking the telephone to the next level. All these inventions were seeded in absurd imaginations. Time, effort, patience, hard work and resources make illogical thoughts get converted to real-time inventions.
