Hard Limits and Electric Cars

Electric cars are a step backwards, not a step forwards; a failed experiment from a century ago.

Tesla himself was a genius, but he was also quite mad, and gloriously absurd. Functionally, we live in a universe of hard limits, of stall speeds, of finite spans, and of death; the only eternity is in our souls, and the only perfection is to be found in mathematics. All art eventually crumbles to dust, and there are certain limits which our technology will never overcome.

" there are certain limits which our technology will never overcome."

But that won't stop people looking for gov't grants from trying.
