Fortunately enough, the mundanes understand effects of
only few technologies that directly relate to their
world (I do not expect any government to pass a ban
on certain classes of QM theories, for example).
Also, they ban the work when it mostly done, and
is just about to produce a "scary" effect.
Even with these restrictions, they still work on
biotech, crypto, etc., because they produce things
the mundanes and their governments actually need now;
this both creates a foundation for transformations
of extropian interest, and raises the level of public
acceptance (I find the levels of synthetic supplements
consumption among regular athletes and New Age folk
just amazing).
And then, at some point, there will be more ways to
hide interesting research from the government, and
people may have increased interest in it - if now
millions of people risk severe punishment for using
chemicals to build muscles or get high, just imagine
what they'd do for dramatic health improvement and
life extent ion.

Meanwhile - could somebody build a cloning facility
outside the "civilized" countries?
