What does "extremely powerful" mean?
Chris Phoenix: Someone emailed the following question, and I found myself writing a fairly long answer that seems worth posting here.
"You have said that molecular manufacturing will be extremely powerful, but very few people know what that really means. What does it mean? What kind of an impact will molecular manufacturing have on politics, economics, law, sociology and the environment?"
