Lower - Consider Nikola Tesla. He died penniless and alone, despite have one of the greatest electrical engineering minds in the worlds history. Yet people didn’t believe his work was a path forwards so the ridiculed him in public, print, no TV at the time. They praised Westinghouse and Edison, both smart men, yet not nearly the same league as Tesla, but had more and better marketing, and more money, and more people behind them to push an inferior solution on people who didn’t know any better. I see Teslas, not A Westinghouse or Edison when I drive, maybe driven by a few saying Edison was right .
