So we have a lot of time and intellectual energy to put into figuring out how to most effectively interact with the AI-like device in the car.

Re: magic - I've been watching a Discovery Science series on TV about
cosmology and one of the researchers (somebody famous, but the
speakers were all pretty famous) said something like - Dark matter and
dark energy make up 95% of the universe and for all we know we might
as well just call them magic.
