Sasha, this reminds me of code cracking arguments I have used in the past.
People have remarked that some code has 6 orders of magnitude strength over
any computation we are expected to have in 20 years, and I have argued that
we would soon be able to transcribe the message to DNA, double it 20 times,
wash it through a few jars of enzymes (or feed it to some GM bacteria), and
reduce the cracking problem by 6 orders of magnitude.
