“I’m talking about something that’s so impossible, it can’t possibly be true. But it’s the only way the world is going to survive, this impossible thing. My job is to change 5 billions of people to something else. Totally impossible. But everything that’s possible has been done by man, I have to deal with the impossible. And when I deal with the impossible and am successful, it makes me feel good because I know I’m not bullshittin’.”
