after nukes, technologies with such massive existential risk potential have been (largely, so far) controlled. based on the manhattan project's success, projects have continued, learning what lines of inquiry to preempt, absorbing any relevant competence they could, and otherwise neutralizing the potential for "independent rediscovery" by any means necessary. in this way a series of earth-shaking (or shattering) technologies have been simultaneously secretly developed and publicly suppressed.


both fortunately and unfortunately, this has sequestered a lot of administrative competence away from public governance, which is at least equally unaware of these technologies.
