With all due respect, this is about as persuasive as "The logical
culmination of human technological progress is the flying car driven
by a man in a silver lycra jumpsuit smoking a self-lighting cigarette."
Paul D. Fernhout should take a look at the chapters by, for example,
Steve Harris, Robert Bradbury, Robin Hanson and George Zebrowski in
YEAR MILLION. (Zebrowski, by the way, wrote at prize-winning length
about self-replicating space habitats in 1979, in his novel
MACROLIFE: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macrolife .)
