Arthur Charles Clarke's three famous laws

Today I heard one of the three famous "laws" of the British science (fiction) writer Arthur Charles Clarke (1917 - 2008) and I have thought to the report  them here :)

  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.
The third sentence is probaly the most famous one and if you look around you, its value and validity will appear still extremely relevant, don't you think?
