the universe is finite. if it's infinite, how can it be growing?
The universe is never ending, it's like saying u can count to infinity
our current level of energy is a joke. all we are doing is burning preserved bodied of dead plants and animals, while in our ignornance turning this "garden of eden" into an increasingly hostile environment.
first off, that is far far far into the future. earth may very well be very different by then.
second, think of the tiny amount of the suns energy that actually hits the planet compared to its 360 degree output. that tiny fraction has powered all life ever. if we capture 100% of it, not only will we be able to illuminate and nourish all life on this planet, but likely numerous terraformed planets full of life. the amount of energy would be unimaginable, and it's potential would be near limitless.
"if we can surround the sun and capture every bit of its energy, the total will be unimaginable".
I don't want to imagine what would happen to us and every living organism on Earth
fossil fuels were not the end all. Dalton seems to have forgotten all about nuclear. infinitely renewable energies are becoming increasingly efficient. we haven't even tapped into the overwhelming geothermal power in the earth.
increasingly efficient solar which is set to outpace coal very soon is a joke compared to its future potential. only a fraction of the suns light even comes near the earth. a large array in space closer to the sun will eclipse anything we can imagine. if we can surround the sun and capture every bit of its energy, the total will be unimaginable.
computers are continuing to grow at massive rates. wired nternet speeds continue to grow exponentially, despite capitalism completely failing us here in the United states. wireless too. how unusable is 3g for today's requirements?
our technology continues to grow exponentially, it has never stopped, it has never slowed down. all it does is accelerate. considering the consistent pattern, it really should be on you to show a slowdown.
we are currently at the peak of development? really? we just hit the industrial revolution 100 years ago and have been growing exponentially ever since. that statement is just silly.
Unless we find a new energy resource, we will be stuck. Air, water, and wind do not cut it. When we discovered how to use fossil fuels, everything just fell together.
now currently we are at the peak of development. so hoping a better space travel in future is stupidity. comeon resources are depleting. this is all we have.
we can't now, does mean we won't ever be able to. who knows what the future holds.
could you expand on this. I just want to understand your point
