you're the one who won't even admit accelerated change exists.
And this is where you keep. missing. the. point.

We do admit it exists. We just don't run off the deep end making unfounded assumptions that it's some kind of exponential curve that won't plateau.
You actually DID say it did not exist...several times.
No, what has been said to you by just about everyone is that a period of accelerated change -- i.e. Moore's law, which has never been in dispute -- does not logically suggest a permanent exponential growth curve. In every since case you have responded with increasingly more bizzare handwaves, including now:

exponentials can keep going and any plateaus are so far above what we have now they will make little difference to the end result.
Which you cannot POSSIBLY know, have made no attempt to demonstrate, and is actually demonstrably false due to the inherent limitations of quantum effects in solid-state electronics.

Those are concrete examples based on mathematics...
"Those" what? You didn't cite an example, nor did you describe the mathematics of it. Neither of which you actually have, because as you have said many MANY times, it's not that the evidence is actually compelling, you just FEEL really good about it.
