yeah - tho my point was saying that a race may become technologically advanced enough to make our technology look primative but that does not say that
this race will develop "magical" technology
they may get to the point where computers etc run at mindblowing speeds , have aircraft/spacecraft that go at tremendous speeds , have energy that is
clean , efficiant and in abundance etc etc but still face the same problems we have when we try and fly in space.
we are moving now technologically at a superfast rate - what happens when we reach the peak and we start slowing down - when our science stops comming
up with answers , when the planet runs out of resources - we may find that in the future the increase in our development may be from mining universe
rare minerals or chemicals , if they are not in an abundant supply then maybe we will fail to move on
if we had run out of fossil fuels on this planet about 50 years ago - where would we be now ? would we have those fighter jets? nuclear reactors ?
chances are that it would be a NO
just a thought
