The 20th century was an amazing time. What makes you think we'll continue to progress at such an alarming rate? More directly, what makes you think this particular avenue, which has made so little progress, will enjoy the same rapid advancements we've seen in other areas?

What you're expressing is your deeply held faith in continued technological progress. You believe that progress is accelerating and that there is no upper bound. How would you defend those beliefs?

The rate that technology advances has been on an ever increasing curve for far longer than what went on in the 20th Century. The more we learn the faster we develop new technologies. There is no indication that said curve will flatten out.
