When practical applications become sufficiently possible that those
without vision can see the benefits, then a lot of money will end up
being spent on transhumanist projects. There's just too much money in
it for them to ignore. But work on it too soon, and you lose the
opportunity to be successful. So don't sweat it, these things will be
developed as they are possible for a finite amount of money.
I mean, we have a 120 Petabyte hard drive being built!!! This stuff is
coming down the pipe guys... don't worry that it doesn't look like
it's just around the corner.
