Uh, no. Other questions persist...
How are we going to get them to stay out of the way...
and how are we going to deal with actual microsingularities...
and how are we going to initiate an actual evolutionary phase transition.

I heartily accept the motto, -- "That government is best which governs
least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and
systematically. Carried out, it finally amounts to this, which also I
believe, -- "That government is best which governs not at all"; and when men
are prepared for it, that will be the kind of government which they will
have. -- Henry David Thoreau
