I would just like to thank all the forces in history from the ancient Greeks to now, that have conspired to allow this moment to happen.
Unless I am mistaken, this is a first of sorts. But even if not, it is a truly beautiful thing nonetheless. It is a product of the enlightenment. A dream of Leonardo Davinci. A testament to what is best in the human conditions of both determination, frivolity and the courage to dream. Perhaps I am making too much of this, but these are the sorts of things I have lived for since being a child. Portable phones with video. Landing on the moon! And human powered flight.
Thank you for indulging me.
