Clarke’s Third Law

Or, A Typical (Paraphrased) Exploratory Service Response To The Embarrassing Problem of Xenodeism:

“So you’re some sort of gods?”

“That depends.”


“If you mean: do we possess assorted skills, powers, devices, and other techne capable of duplicating pretty much any miracle attributed to the mythological deities of yore, yes. If you mean: are we exemplary, awesome, righteous, and worthy of emulation in all things, we’re flattered, and maybe. If you mean: should you get on your knee-equivalents and start grovelling before us in worship, knock that shit off right now.”
