    Summary

    -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.
    ( -- any sufficiently advanced magic is indistinguishable from technology;)
    ( -- any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced;)
    ( -- any sufficiently advanced magic is indistinguishable from a rigged demonstration;)
    ( -- any sufficiently advanced anything is indistinguishable from utter nonsense [especially if it is sufficiently advanced nonsense to begin with.])
