<< But time does not matter if you are immortal. I agree with Anders that
technological development will level off, but what's important in the long
run is whether the ultimate limit of technology bounds the total amount of
computation that can be done before the universe ends (or as time goes to
infinity if the universe does not end). If the answer is no, we don't have
to build a better galaxy brain, we can just simulate one.

Rather than level off, I believe that technology(actually all novelty) will
exponentially increase into a climax. Thats what its been doing
(exponentially increasing) and there's no reason why it should stop.
