I just finished watching Stephen Colbert interview Neil deGrasse Tyson. It was amazing! Interesting, intelligent and the best part - it was funny! If you don't know who Neil deGrasse Tyson is he's an American astrophysicist, author and currently the Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the Rose Center for Earth and Space and a research associate in the department of astrophysics at the American Museum of Natural History. If that isn't enough from '06 to '11 he hosted the educational science television show NOVA ScienceNow on PBS and is a frequent guest on other television shows.
If you'd like to watch - and I highly recommend it not just for interest but the humor is wonderful:
One part I found enlightening and answered some questions for me was this conversation: The understanding that it gave me comes from the fact that I do remote energy transmissions. They are very helpful for a person in many ways and I find that people refuse and shy away and now I understand why.
N: Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. (This is the third of Arthur C. Clarke's Three Laws of prediction formulated by the British writer.
S: If something gets to complex for the average person to understand...
N: ...it's magic. And you have powers I don't trust cause I don't know what you're going to do with it next.
Where if you understood how it worked...you'd say "Hey! Give me one of those."
