  1. […] “Clarke’s fourth law” is the name of Gerry Canavan’s post linking to the blog Next Nature’s post “Any Sufficiently Advanced Civilization is Indistinguishable from Nature”. In the titles of their posts, the two blogs are referring to Clarke’s three 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. Interesting. I’m assuming that your implication, is that as of this moment in time, no such advanced human civilization exists, or that if it does, it remains hidden as a matter of its own survival, we barbarians have yet to discover it and rape it.
