I am the last person to insist that what we call science today is going to be the last word.  Judging by the just the last few centuries, I wouldn't even hazard a guess about what "science" will mean 500 or 1,000 years from now.  I can't imagine.

Science is a methodology, a logical way of discovering and understanding. In that sense science will mean exactly the same as it does now in 500, 1,000 or 10,000 years. What it has discovered and what we understand as a result of science, that no one can imagine.

It doesn't matter how much work you put in, you still can't achieve the impossible.

It's indeed impossible... NOW.

Didn't you post a thread recently about an impossible find becoming possible?

Anyway light-speed, I feel confident on breaking that. Especially when I am wearing my Adidas tracksuit. :tu:

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.
