Clark on cluelessness, Clarke on what is possible
I think this law has psychological applications, too:
Sufficiently advanced cluelessness is indistinguishable from malice. [J. Porter Clark]
Also fun—Clarke’s three laws
- 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 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.
