Laws of Prophesy
1. When a distinquished but elderly scientist states that something is possible,
he is almost certainly right.
When he states that something is impossible, he is 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.
