The past 300 centuries have taught us that oftentimes myth remains myth yet informs and spurns our development. Does Daedalus' desire have anything to do with NASA? Will the desire to travel through time and the attached myths lead to true TT technology?

Come on hoaxers! Don't let the myth die. Have a little backbone, will you?[/b]

Well, they think they're sort of like Prometheuses, and thus unable to see too far into their own futures to see what's in store on the forum for them, so they back out when the chance opens.

Also, more of the Narcissus here than the Daedalus, although I suppose the desire is strong enough to make it more or less real, and it seems to them and some members that they are actually flying-- it's just that the fall itself is not very dramatic, or even noticeable. (You may know the poem I mean here, in which the painting is described, in which the tiny figure is shown falling far in the background).

The true TT technology will be reached according to the ancient pattern, yes. We first saw it in tall tales, after all. Dickens and Twain, too.

Does it matter if some of them had a glimmer of intelligence in their eyes or should we chalk that up to malice O' four thoughts on their part?[/b]

No more than three for the best of them, and none of those original.
