Those engineers were confused because your pitch lacks sufficient examples
of in-flight entertainment and similar amusing distractions. Perhaps you
could spend a bit more time on the computational power in terms of modern
metrics - like how many Blue-Ray DVD-equivalences you could store or how
many Library of Congresses (LoCs) you can transfer from one side of the
M-Brain to another each second. Whether you propose that the amount of
speed (per conscious entity) is orders of magnitude faster than humanity is
currently operating or opt instead for the 20 million years to
one subjective hour so you don't get bored on the way... it's personal
preference. It'd be the cruise of a lifetime... or several million
Definitely needs more marketing. Think in terms of 30 second adverts, then
think in terms of 2 second adverts within the 30 second adverts for the
really ADHD. :)
