Old theory, old pattern of behaviour

That sound you hear is Chandra Wickramasinghe quoting Arthur C. Clarke:

"Every revolutionary idea seems to evoke three stages of reaction. They may be summed up by the phrases:

(1) It's completely impossible.

(2) It's possible, but it's not worth doing.

(3) I said it was a good idea all along".
