Really good ideas and strokes of genius are often manifest in the right questions being asked: How small can information be encoded? How can information be written? How can information it be read? All of these important "Hows" were asked by Feynman in a time when computers had to be put in large rooms and when the impending space race was forcing engineers to do some serious strategic thinking in making technology small enough to be lifted by rockets into space to function as serious tools in scientific exploration and defence.
Feynman himself may not have invented the technology we see in the development and continuity of the computer age, but the fact that even in the early 1960's nanotechnology was being considered as a serious field of study was definitely a factor contributing to the boom in computer technology seen in the late 20th century and continues to reach more spectacular levels of sophistication in the 21st century.
Jump 25 years forward into the year 1984, when Feynman tries to retell his 1959 lecture from a more modern perspective in that many aspects of his vision have been fulfilled, particularly with the invention of the electron microscope, the atomic force microscope and experimental manipulation of the atomic scale of matter. Also discussed is the current practical field of photolithography for the manufacture of bipolar transistors and junctions used in computer chips done on an industrial scale and how this process continues with ever decreasing wavelength capabilities of lasers from UV to X-rays. Feynman also discusses the boundaries of miniaturization and how the scale differences affect the function of certain aspects of technology as well as in nature.
In the true spirit of Feynman, the discussion goes into the colorful details and gives diagrammatic examples of how this field had progressed from 1959 to 1984. We can only imagine how Feynman would have felt about the modern developments in nanotechnology in the 21st century where entirely exotic principles of physics may begin to become technologically significant, including vacuum fluctuations and quantum entanglements. Without a doubt he would have found our developments exciting but always within the realms of understanding by studying the most fundamental language of nature, quantum mechanics, to bring our macroscopic brains into visualizing, however abstractly, the tiny machinery of nature.

I disagree with him, on the basis of human life in the life spectrum; it has certain limitations and it has certain depths, for example it can't grasp infinite, in finite it staggers when comes to the grandeur universal structure and in miniature it is struggling to understand Waves and particles. If it is to take a general suggestive future for humans by a few humans, whose intellectual levels deception causes the fact ignored that humans perception and organs of perception needs balance development if chellenged the outcomes are non reconcilable, that small machines cubicle space living and all that it would be exactly the same as when the Queen's inquiry of the reason of unrest was answered that there is no bread she suggested that they should eat cakes.

Feynman was such a fine man. Here he gives this really insightful and far-seeing lecture to a lay audience, and his reward for making arcane physics understandable is to be treated to questions like “What makes the world work?” At that moment you can see the look on his face: wondering if anything he said has penetrated even the slightest bit. But God bless him for trying.

Dealing with the topic of matter exceeding the speed of light, (summarizing)as an objust made of matted reaches the speed of light it requires more and more inertia bc the mass of the object increases.. 🤔 but what if we looked for a way to reduce inertia. Instead if pushing the object your pulling it?

45:34-47:21 46:07 "The game I [Richard Feynman] play is a very interesting one; it's imagination in a tight straight-jacket; which is this: that it has to agree with the known laws of physics." .."..The game is to try to figure out with what we know, what's possible?.. So it requires imagination to think of 'what's possible?'; then it requires an analysis back (a 'checking') to see whether it fits (it's allowed) according to what is known"
