We dream of something, call it science fiction (todays term) and then work toward making it a reality.
It happens all the time.
It will continue to happen.
Many humans believe in God (interpret that word/name however you wish) but what they actually do is work toward being
God by making (creating) things. They also want to control
the things they make.
Why else would we be working on robots that are modeled after the human form if not to create something in our self image.
In that sense we are quite shallow I think.
What that has to do with magnetic refrigeration is a little far off but it does bring chills to me sometimes when I think about it.
