"Okay, so imagine you go back in time to like the 1600s, and at first you’re terrified but then you realize the opportunity of inventing all of these ideas and becoming the richest man alive. And so you find someone sympathetic and you start to tell them all about the amazing gift of the car, or the computer, or space travel. And then they ask how it works, and you’ve got no idea because who understands exactly how a computer works, really. So you’re not going to be the richest man alive, you’re going to be a nutter whose ideas just happen to be slightly more on the ball than most."
