You describe a series of phase changes that have marked world-progress, the most recent of which is economic growth. If I understand the pattern, since each phase-change has a radically different character from the previous one, your view would be that something bigger and better than economic growth is coming (and, judging by the acceleration, soon!).
If I understand you correctly, your piece is not so much a paean to the beauty of economic growth, but an impatient plea that the era of economic growth come to an end already. You would like to see what better phase comes next—is that right?
