Man Traveled to the Moon because it was Impossible

What [man landing on the moon] is doing up there is indulging his obsession with the impossible. The impossible infuriates and tantalizes him. Show him an impossible job and he will reduce it to a possibility so trite that eventually it bores him.


The impossible infuriates us, so we must make it possible so it can become mundane and boring.
