The idea of continuous growth inevitably runs into the limits of the system that contains it, in this case a finite planet.
While growth is generally seen as a good thing, it’s not always true that if something is good, more of it must be better. We don’t want our children to be seven or eight feet tall. Living things will grow, for the most part, until they are at their mature size, and then they’ll stop. Some mysterious internal mechanism knows when more growth would actually hinder their long-term ability to survive.
