Re: Inevitable

Wanting something and researching it does not make it inevitable.

Loads of examples where goals were found to be either:

Inherently impossible (Perpetual motion, increasing information on a channel indefinitely - Shannon Limit. Both are forbidden by Thermodynamics).

Inherently pointless (Transmuting lead to gold etc).

Probably impossible (FTL travel, Antigravity, Telepathy etc).
