There’s too much talk about time-travel and too little about distance-travel – which is what we should focus on and work towards improving it drastically. Distance-travel is more useful to us.
When two friends, in different parts of the world are ready to meet and the only thing that separates them is distance, then the thing that we should be looking to solve is not time-travel, but distance-travel.
How can two people who live away from each other, meet in an instant without having to spend time travelling? Better roads, faster trains, and advanced aeroplanes can only do so much.
But distance also has a purpose – and we cannot ignore that. It gives us the means to understand deeply, how much the other person means to us and the lengths we will go to make the meeting happen.
