Mathematics itself is on fire

Faster than light space ships can be built when you know specific truth about physics. Subjective truth can be fun but it does not power warp drives or find aliens.
I suspect there are other ways to travel faster than light and find aliens, and I think there are other ways to work out how to do so. I think, given time and perhaps some technological or chemical augmentation, when a consciousness of sufficient intuitive lucidity lets its self wander creatively, extraordinary powers and knowledge will simply emerge like life on the surface of the primordial planet, probably without the thinker even aware of what they're doing until they find themselves leaving the atmosphere.
Maybe I'm crazy, or maybe I'll see you up there.
