    And, as usual, Wang.

    Seems like a window may exist here for developing very dense persistent solid state memory.

    And, of course, there's always some wag adding "but muh quantum computer" innit.

    Makes one wonder if "heat logic gates" will ever be A Thing.

    And looking at that complex structure of exotic compounds makes one reflect on the difficulty of reverse engineering technology from another civilisation that is only a century or so ahead of us.

    But that's not reverse engineering. That's education, or maybe basic research. Reverse engineering means (to me) that you are trying to understand something by applying your knowledge to analyse how it works. If you are taking apart a field-spliced hydrochromic gargleblaster from Omigosh iX you don't have any basis for analysing it - the exercise will be pure discovery.

    Or dropping your iPhone 11 into rural Oklahoma in 1900. Not only would the recipients not know how it worked, but even its function wouldn't be clear. Reverse-engineering using the technology of the time would be impossible.

    If you're lucky or very talented.

    Yes, "reverse engineering" is a misnomer here. The overarching point however stands - that just a few decades makes a huge difference. Consider the largest possible time difference in just our galaxy between ourselves and a maximally older civilisation, for the point to really hit home. The figure is in the billions of years.

    Progress is not necessarily exponential, or even monotonic.

    Isn't "progress" just "complexity"?
