Human progress has always been related to overcoming a fundamental challenge: scaling something up without breaking it. I call this the “Godzilla problem” as Godzilla is a fantasy figure that nicely represents our naïve assumption about how size and strength correlate. As a fantasy creature, Godzilla spreads fear but as a real creature it would simply collapse under its own weight. In short, scale gives us superpowers but also makes us frail.
