Want to Survive into the Future? Try on the Meanwhile

Scientific Theories

If the past informs the future, a tragic tomorrow can seem inevitable: famine, war, disease, and destruction threaten to unfold at the end of every path. Escaping the past has meant maintaining physical and economic growth, but this leads to another set of worries: Does all this expansion doom humans to the boom and bust fate that awaits all exponential creatures? It might. But what if an endless cycle between growth and death is just one of many possible evolutionary strategies? This is the story of the meanwhile creatures, exponential growers who thrive and persist long after growth is done.
