Clarke’s Three Laws
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.
- 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.
- The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
- Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
