Arthur C. Clarke Defines Impossible

Wise words from Arthur C. Clarke in his book Profiles of the Future (in Forward to the Millenium Edition):

“‘Impossible’ is an extremely dangerous word (…) I have tried to define its application by Three Laws (…):

1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist says that something is possible, (s)he is almost certainly right. When (s)he says it is impossible, (s)he is very probably wrong.

2. The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible.

3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
