Clarke’s Three Laws

Arthur C Clarke

Following an interesting office conversation about malice and stupidity (“Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity”) I was introduced to Clarke’s Three Laws which I feel are worth sharing.

They are:

  1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
  2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
  3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
