to me, we live in a universe of ever increasing complexity. One
source of the increasing complexity is linguistic and, as far as I

Given that, there is not necessary limit to growth.

Also, the expansion will be connected to previous states and, by that
at least, thoroughly interconnected. This seems to me good news both
for our understanding and for the long-term consequences of growth.
What seems like unfavourable growth is not disconnected from the
larger whole and that is what provides the signals of change.

I, for one, find this view hopeful.
