'En Passant a L'Europa'
Science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke Dies at 90

It is with great feelings of sympathy and gratitude that I received today the news of the passing of another giant on whose shoulders we all stand to see farther and more clearly the great glories of the Universe that were but dimly seen when he was born.

Few people have simultaneously so driven the development of science, human imagination, then expanded human conscious so greatly (or so rapidly), in single lifetime than Sir Arthur C. Clarke.

My own life received a major course correction and my career path changed (from physical sciences to parapsychology) in one instant upon seeing the "Star Child's" face in "2001: A Space Odyssey" for the first time in 1968.

Like the monkey, "Moon Watcher," I did not know what I would do with the new found knowledge, "but I would think of something." Ironically, just this week, I gave my latest copy of "Childhood's End" to a 10 year-old who had never heard of Arthur C. Clarke. Our minds pass through "Clarkeian thought forms" daily without noticing their roots in our global consciousness, embedded there by Clarke.



"Childhood's End" and "2001" are two of the very few books that I have enjoyed reading 3 times, finding them to be new, with deeper levels of meaning, each time I read them. Just yesterday, I was facetiously calling for an appointment with "Dr. Chandra" at the university at Urbana-Illinois to refresh my memory banks when I forgot about "8K" of data in a website address.

But this "bit," I do remember and have never forgotten:

"All these worlds are yours, except Europa.
   Attempt no landings there....
   Use Them Together, Use Them In peace.*



Godspeed, Sir Arthur C. Clark...

Now all these worlds are yours... including Europa.



"Something's going to happen... Something wonderful...." *

Keep that thought in mind …That is the legacy of Sir Arthur C. Clarke to you, everyone one of you, on the good, good Earth.
