"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." -- Arthur C. Clarke


I thought about this just now. I...either think this Earthian guy was a genius or a whack-a-loon, right now.

I think he's got a pretty good point. I mean, I was pretty impressed when they made automatic doors, I would have thought it was magic if I didn't know better.

Well, that's the thing. "Know better." Why is it really knowing "better"?
What if that's all it is? Just another word for it.

I just meant I knew that it wasn't magic and it was a new invention before I got to try it out.

But my question is "What IS magic?"

...you know, I have no idea.

I think Kadiy has the right idea below.

Sounds about right to me.

Now think about this: "We're all star stuff."

I wonder how far across the galaxy every part of me has come.

Blows your mind, doesn't it?
25th-Apr-2009 08:35 pm (UTC)
I'm gonna sit back and soak that all in...

It may take a little while, yeah.
