Alot of inventors and people always bring up this question.

when we humans come cross something so far fetch we usually say well thats impossible. i believe that nothing is impossible it just hasnt happen yet or hasnt been done yet.

look at it this way lets say u created a time machine and went back to the days of cavemen and lets just say they fully understand your language hehe so you walk up to one of these cavemen and told him a story about a device you cud sell him which will allow him to see a cavewomen on a beach on the next side of the world jus like she was right in front of him and you would tell him that it will be all in a box about the size of the rock he is sitting on(a small rock lol) what would think he will do or say. he probaly will just kill you right then or run away or tell u this "sorry mister thats impossible" but now we know that isnt true today the idea that is almost frightening to this cavemen is in nearly every semi succesful household on this earth and has become to some the most addictive thing known to man lol.

anyway thats my opinion on impossibility.

...what about the impossibility of jumping off the Earth into space with the only force acting against gravity being my legs?

Good point Decius, it was Schopenhauer who said, "we are something stupid, and @ best something that cancels itself out."

This will tie into the my explaination about good v. evil in another thread...

It seems now more than ever inventions are implemented quickly or at least there upgrades are. They also shape our exsistence as well to a degree. The celular telephone computers and the internet have really shaken things up a whole lot. technological advances move quickly proliferating our society with change. It seems that however remains constant - change.

It is impossible to see what is down the road- there is some excitment and anticipation of new developments but at the same time there is always the fear that new technologies may force us to change in ways we do not wish to.

We'll be able to do anything so long as its either :
- practical and not absurdly expensive
- its so neat we just have to do it (think space race)
