Think of the yin and yang symbol, with each step of progress within it is the capacity for that progress to cause greater regression.
Imagine if a 'portable' unlimited power source became available, great progress yet the regressive aspects that it would empower, would they overwhelm the progressive as nuclear has done, as fossil fuels continue to do?
