Continual progress can be stagnation

No matter how much our consciousness evolves through the creation of more subtle and complex structures, we will have covered only an infinitesimal fragment of an ever expanding possibilities. As with the evolution of sex, the incentive for evolving general approaches to problems comes from evolutionary competition and cooperation. One only needs powerful self reflecting structure to deal with beings at a level comparable to one's own level. The only process that can evolve such structures without a definite limit is a divergent one following an ever increasing number of paths. Any system that focuses on a finite number of alternatives will, with mathematical certainty, hit a brick wall limiting levels of structure and levels of consciousness. Such a system can make continual progress. However it will have a specific limit that a divergent process can eventually discover. There are finite structures that will, in some sense, encompass the entire infinite sequence of progressive steps that the single path process might follow over an eternity.
