Not all the kings horses or men or propaganda or scientists and not even Monsanto et al has any defense against the quote of destiny once wielded because its the simple and plain truth of this whole matter of biotech and rewards v risks etc...any further arguments on your part would simply be condition reflexive responses much as were exhibited by Harry after his virtual dispatching...body can still twitch long after head is severed.
Just as an added cherry atop your head in a basket positioning:
"Known unknowns - things we know we need to research, the results of that research might take more or less time, but we know we can figure it out before we invest into this project.
Unknown unknowns - We will start the project not knowing these things will be a problem. These will derail our project in ways we can not foresee.
Given the context it might be a silly statement, but in and of itself it explains the mentality of approaching larger projects quite succinctly."
