In posting this record of events I have put my life in grave danger. Two quotes spring to mind, four laws and a mysterious parting shot from one of this century’s greatest minds:
 
“The world is a fine place, and worth fighting for.” – 
  —  Ernest Hemingway
 
 
“There are events which are so great that if a writer has participated in them his obligation is to write truly rather than assume the presumption of altering them with invention.” – Ernest Hemingway
Arthur C. Clarke’s four laws:
1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.”

2. “The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.”

3. “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

4. “The only thing that kills a Washington political career is being caught with a dead girl or a live boy.”                 

 Arthur C. Clarke: ARRESTED IN NORTHEAST THAILAND:

                                                                                                             

 

  • Soon to depart this planet, I feel it time to reveal one of my life’s great discoveries. A large conspiracy looms over every man, woman and child on this planet, imprisoning all within its vast reach… From our shared vantage point, a seemingly dark and impenetrable forest spans the horizon. But, within it, an observable fact, or event, in which a vast scheme is at play.Compiling fragmented text from the millions of seemingly unrelated articles over the last 100 years of print, one can see the forest for the trees and slowly piece together the complex puzzle – “The Grand Plan”.  This ‘plan’, this ‘conspiracy’ is shrouded by a black cape which hides a cabalic fraternity of evil, cloaking the elite few who thrive within its existence and duping the many who would dare challenge its authority. What I’m trying to say, is simply this: smoke ’em if you got ’em, because ladies and gentleman, we’re all fucked!” – Carl Sagan Nov 1996

    Your #4 of Clarke’s Laws is not by Arthur C. Clarke, but by Gore Vidal.
