Transcendence You are taking on a self-aware computer system that mustered technologies you didn't even know existed.
For this you will need - 6 guys and 2 cannons from the Remember The Alamo museum.
Transcendence If for 2 years you are building an advanced computer facility with quantum processors, massive powerful servers, fields of solar panels etc, it will come as a complete surprise to the US government. But not to a bunch of tech hippies with no access to any electrical equipment, cellphones or Internet.
Transcendence Even the most primitive AI will be more advanced than the entire humanity that ever lived. Feeling stupid already? Well, you should. Because even Johnny Depp knows this. And he is 50.
