"All these worlds are yours, except Europa. Attempt no landings there..."
About this creation
Tribute to Arthur C. clarke who passed away recently.
He will be remembered not only for his imaginative science fiction
but also his non-fiction scientific work.
Check out the Wiki page is you're interested:
Some quotes of his that I like:
"One cannot have superior science and inferior morals.
The combination is unstable and self-destroying."
"I'm sure the universe is full of intelligent life.
It's just been too intelligent to come here."
"Two possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the Universe
or we are not. Both are equally terrifying."
Edit: I just realised Mr. Young has posted next to me.
THE SHANNON'S ARE COMING! WE'RE TAKING OVER!
LOCK UP YOUR DAUGHTERS AND MOTHERS!!
You know what scares me most about this MOC? It's not the thought of being alone in a cold, emotionless universe or even that we might not be alone and the invaders are just bidding their time. The scariest thing about this is the thought of the "Shannons" working together (shudder). I'm gonna need to go huddle in the corner for a long while after thinking about that. ~ Chris.
I'd love to quote 2001 here, but it's all about the visuals, not the dialogue, so nothing apt comes to mind. HAL gets all the best lines and he's a computer. The monolith would have no evolutionary effect on him... would it?
