Aside from this Ted-Ed video being a beautiful animation, I love the ideas that it proposes. I've always thought that fiction can guide technology into reality. Books can take a thousand foot view of our world and make commentary in narrative form. It's why we love stories. Through stories we can experience our curiosities as well as our fears and sometimes, they can direct the course of our future, or warn us about the dangers of reliving the past.
