7. I wish, I wish, I wish
That this would come true.

But many times technology that works fine in the laboratory doesn't scale and fails to achieve real-world applications.

Perhaps I'm cynical because for the past 30 years I've heard that a "cure" for spinal cord injury is just around the corner. And yet here I sit, still in my wheelchair, still paralyzed. My quip now is "The cure for SCI is next year." I'll say that every year until I'm dead (or, miraculously there is a cure).

In much the same way I've been reading about fusion research for decades and a functioning fusion reactor is always "just around the corner."

I wish, I wish, I wish....
