On the passing of Clarke...

March 19, 2008 11:18 AM

In case you haven’t been following the news Arthur C. Clarke passed away yesterday at the age of 90.

I miss him already.

There’s a great shortage of people of his spirit in this world and until he’s replaced the world just became a little colder.

I only wish he’d lived to see his one law come to pass. (“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”) (I probably have typo’d that - I have no easy search capability at the moment.)

In truth though, by his own words, he saw some things that he’d never conceived of and I guess in that way there is a glimpse of the magic he spoke of. I hope to live long enough to see it in my lifetime.

There’s an awful shortage of “magic” in the world of late...

Regardless I wish well of the new Star Child and hope he travels the universe in joy and light. :-)
