He was insinuating that technological progress could stagnate at the same
rate for an undetermined period of time, I think sharing with him some
(gun tootin') transhumanist are shooting for might redirect his irrational
belief into something hopefully more like pragmatic optimism.

ah I'm glad to hear that. there goes one of my prejudice :-)
maybe one of the essay I'm working on will be of interest here then: it's
on the importance of jouissance (joy/sense) in the development of an ethic
of multiplicity. Our body precedes our thoughts so it's wisdom should be put

an artform for a finer understanding of the subtilities of "limits" in
communications. So basically I'm re-writing foucault using evol. psy :-)
