Clarke’s Three Laws are three “laws” of prediction formulated by the British writer Arthur C. Clarke.

They are:

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.

Told to me by a friend that referenced Clarke’s Three Laws on Wikipedia.  I love the third one, MAGIC!!!’s_three_laws
