Indistinguishable from a magician
From the 1998 EGOgram:
If I could be granted three wishes, they would be:
1) Peace in Sri Lanka and the whole world, if that's not asking too much;
2) The first commercial prototypes of the clean, virtually infinite energy devices which will end the fossil fuel age;
3) Proof of life elsewhere preferably intelligent, though I'd settle for anything that can put a couple of cells together.
There are indications that the first may be in sight and I've been expecting number 2 "real soon now" for the past five years. As for the third well, your guess is as good as mine.
The words of Arthur C. Clarke, who died today at the age of 90.Posted at 7:01 PM to The Way We Were
