I’ve been bouncing this thought in my head for a while now.
So I keep seeing news of new materials and new energy storage ideas that could be just around the corner, things that could revolutionize our current technology. Thing is they seem so simple in design, carbon air batteries, graphene creation with tape. My question to Gregorius is, what would you do if they invented something that:
- vastly changed our current tech standpoint
- Was made from simple materials
- totally broke our current technological progression tree?
I’m thinking the accidental invention of the match and similar scenarios.
Basically someone invents a thing that you could build with simple tools and materials, something simple that no-one has thought of before or a material we already have that turns out to have some superior quality we didn’t realize or when mixed with something else, and thus would make tiers of materials and tech essentially redundant?
