Quote by John Carmack
Rocket science has been mythologized all out of proportion to its true difficulty.
This quote suggests that the complexity and difficulty often associated with rocket science have been exaggerated and misrepresented. It implies that rocket science is not as insurmountable as it is commonly believed to be. The statement questions the way people exaggerate and make something seem far more complex than it actually is, implying that rocket science is not as daunting as its reputation might suggest. It emphasizes the need to approach it with an open mind and a willingness to debunk the myths that surround it.
It cannot be denied that for a society which has to create scarcity to save its members from starvation, to whom abundance spells disaster, and to whom unlimited energy means unlimited power for war and destruction, there is an ominous cloud in the distance though at present it be no bigger than a man's hand.
