I love your style, Mike. You are an eternal optimist buried in the weeds of hope, but I’m wondering if you really get what I mean by probability balance and not being able to escape it.

Sure, human kind has made some awesome advances over the last 300 years or so, however, by the law of probability balance that only means the negative offset must be huge. Most likely meaning, in this case, total nuclear annihilation will offset our great technical advancements.
