Just one picky grammar thing... I think perhaps it should read "...its
current (not currently) human limitations" The word current is an adjective
describing the noun limitations, not an adverb describing the adjective
human. It is our limitations which are current. Though it is true we are
"currently human", I don't think this is your intended interpretation.
