My dear,

Have you noticed?

We can fly. We can turn fire to ice, and vice versa. We can talk to those on the other side of the world. We can make salt water drinkable. And we can change every being of how we look.

We can save life. We can give life. We can take life.

We can turn darkness to light. We can make that which is old, new. We can breathe under water, and we can touch the stars.

Tell me, is that not magical?

Falsely yours,
Sir Arthur C. Clarke
