Key Facts
  • Ivan has 4-5 espressos during the day, capped off with an after dinner coffee with sleep never being a problem.
  • He tries to read a book a week.
  • His self discipline drives him to exercise every day.
When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

– The 3 laws: Arthur C. Clarke
