As military-grade robotics get cheaper and more capable, they'll be armed and put on American streets. With enough data from social media giants, these machines can mitigate some, possibly many mass murder attacks.

Diving deep into the foundations of physical reality requires a deep dive into advanced mathematics. Usually this goes together with formulas or other descriptions that are incomprehensible to most people.
