We want to be able to simulate on the computer any machine
that anyone can dream up.
We want to be able to realize any idea that belongs in the
broadest sense to the field of Newtonian mechanics.
We want to be able to check on the computer the soundness
of any piece of equipment that we have in mind.
We want to be able to build virtual machines and to see how
they work on the screen, watch how they operate.
We want to be able to carry out measurements on these virtual
machines while they're running.
We want to be able to analyze these machines that exist,
so far only in our minds.
We want to be able to give these machines autonomous controls.
We want to see how a machine responds to given controls and,
in this way, to be able to optimize machine operation.
We also want to be able to control these machines manually
with a corresponding interface.
We want to be able to build simulators.
We want to encourage everybody to try something new, to take
a risk, to travel new roads.We want to provide a tool that
makes the testing of new ideas, especially these that are
risky, expensive or extremely difficult to explore otherwise,
