Man will never...

People criticize what they don't understand, and a fact about how they do not recognize such a concept is a reason behind the criticisms of The Zeitgeist Movement and the entire concept of a resource-based economy. It's like trying to describe a color to someone who hasn't seen it. Hunter-gatherer societies never experiences a faucet, people didn't know that flight was even possible, nor did they think we could land on the moon.
