The Nemesis/Ibykus Principle...
Mankind has no such fixed carrying capacity. Imagine the absurdity of someone from the past, from the days of wood burning, running around like a nut
screaming, "We're gonna run out of trees! We're gonna run out of trees!" Compare such ravings to your modern environmentalists (who could care less
about new discovered pandora worlds).
Imagine that you were to travel back in times to the Middle Ages, and tried to explain to the people you met, the process of splitting an atom (atomic
power or greater is needed to travel to a planet). How long would it take them to declare you a witch and burn you alive? Reflect on what is possible
in terms of technology, by thinking of those potentialities which the smartest men of our age could nto possibly comprehend yet, as the relation of
the medieval mind to nuclear power. *Nuclear power or anti-matter would be needed for star travel (yet the common thinking in science now forbids
mankind moving past the great power of coal and oil).
