The third of Clarke's three laws is at play here:

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

"sufficiently advanced" is really a relative term. To one who understands it, it is not sufficiently advanced to be indistinguishable from magic. But to one who doesn't understand it, the line between reality and magic is obscured.

Once technology becomes indistinguishable from magic, it becomes impossible to distinguish between what is possible and what is impossible. With magic everything should be possible, right? What we need to do is shed our understanding so that the technology we're discussing appears to us as magic as it does to someone who believes that through the magic of technology everything must be possible. Only then will we be able to come up with solutions based on the boundless nature magic rather than the finite constraints of well-understood technology.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
