I enjoy science fiction. I really don’t understand why some people can’t. Einstein said that the “true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.” To me that proclaims that what human’s can dream up, is close to what human’s have achieved. It keeps us looking to a future that might be, and inspiring those who have the knowledge to put it all together.
Even if some of it is escapism, such as John Carter, it still has some significance. The ability to sit back and enjoy someone else’s vision has such interesting artistic merit. Star Trek was a great place to have people think about what the most promising theories now could look like in the future.
