Indeed, atoms could be the linit of how small we can go.

 What is this Boston MBTA ?

>You can approximate the ramp up to it and how fast it may change but unless
your equations actually look like an S in the long run -- something like
slowly growing from 2006 through ~2020, speeding up significantly and going
through the roof from ~2030-2050 and then slowing down signifcantly into
something relatively flat from ~2060-70 for the next few hundred years (at
least) they don't capture the essence.

As I said, I'm sure my model could be based on an S-curve and would then
flatten out, and after the change goes through the roof I don't know that we
can really mae any predictions.

Something like that.  People are going to have an interesting time deciding

Well, you have been saying that there will still be resource limits, and
there will still be selfish memes.
