The Three Laws of Sir Arthur C. Clarke• First Law: 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.• Second Law: The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.• Third Law: Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
Technologies of the “past”• 30 years ago Personal computers• 20 years ago Cell phones• 10 years ago Google• What will happen in 10 years? In 20 years? In 30 years? Immortal (ageless) cells!
