Yes what can break will break, yet here we are exchanging emails, I think
your statement assumes a vast search space.
No need to solve the whole thing, just to make my tiny part a bit better. 
No need to solve my tiny part for eternity, just for the near term.
Yes there will always be this long tail, but with what one would deem a
sufficiently low probability, in the intersection of the above search

Yes human brains have their limits, hence we invented AI to help us solve
Though in a sense it's just shifting the complexity to yet another layer
