Over-all, the movie is logical by giving an explanation to every situation even to the scientific innovations and mishaps. But the highlighted message of the film is that the society back then dictates what can be explored and what cannot. The science back then already has an idea of what all the innovations and discoveries can do. That all needed resources are just around us but we should think if moving “forward” does really benefit us.
Like the exploration of the steam engine during the Greek period, being advanced is not equal to being beneficial. Exploration and discovery considers a lot of factor, down until the smallest decimal place.
