There are serious arguments according to which technological progress may
have not slowed down yet, but at least its *acceleration* would, the main
exponential exception remaining Moore's law and everything directly or
indirectly connected with it.
This is a discomforting thought, but at least it calls for a higher degree
of commitment from individuals and governments, and represents one better
reason for the existence of transhumanism as such than the idea of having a
tea club of cheeleaders applauding from the aisles "inevitable"
developments, if not even considering the idea of delaying them...
