                 The comments here display a pedestrian lack of imagination.  Not too long ago the top authorities declared that it was impossible to fly, travel at over 20mph etc etc etc.  Paradigms will shift, impossibilities will become matter of fact.  Does anyone here really think that looking at the potentials of our existence from our current primitive state of technology is all inclusive?

Brings to mind Arthur C. Clarke's observation that anything sufficiently advanced is indistinguishable from magic.
