I never read science fiction, but I know many of you do.
Here’s a tribute to Arthur C. Clarke from Jessica Hagy:
My own little tribute to Sir Arthur. If anyone cares to take a look.
Well that is totally wrong. The one circle should be labeled “technology” and the overlapping space “advanced technology” because the law is “advanced technology is *indistinguishable* from magic.”
What do you mean never read science fiction?
Yeah, what kind of self-respecting atheist doesn’t read science fiction?
Thats one way to do it, I’m sure, GuyMac. But as it reads now,it says that the effects of some advanced technology and the effects of some magic are overlapping and that overlap can be described by Clarke’s Law.
Perfectly valid and I can’t believe I’m arguing about a Venn diagram of Clarke’s Third Law on the internet. Stereotype, much?
