Hey Jesse,

Not exactly related, but I'd highly recommend Barnouw's Magician and the
Cinema
<https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/erik-barnouw-6/the-magician-and-the-cinema-2/>,
which expounds on Arthur C. Clarke's later statement that any sufficiently
advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

affectionately,

Marc
