Wierd Thoughts...

I have a general idea what the space elevator concept is, but I want to take this second to mention a strange dream I recently had... In the dream, I looked out a window and long cigar shaped craft was riding up into the air diagonally on what looked to be a focused beam of light ending from space all the way to the ground (I realize space elevators typically go 'straight up' and typically on a tether). In the dream I was totally lead to believe this could be a space elevator carrying humans.

The dream causes me to wonder if physicists will discover 'some other other way' (magnetism or something that works similar similar?) to move a car up and down before a solid tether becomes feasible... After all even the tether is sorta 'easier said than done'(?)
