balance after normal democracy is achieved. The foregoing discussion seems to imply
that we might not need the presence of continuous economic development after normal
democracy; in fact, we might. Economic development will likely continue to facilitate
the lives of human beings by providing them with financial needs required to fund things
like space exploration, research on disease control, and a high quality of life. It would
also help to maintain the knowledge-power equilibrium.
From the foregoing discussion it would seem that democratic development would
come to a standstill after normal democracy; on the contrary, it may be an infinite
process.

While the form of the distribution of political power, the normalcy of the
curve, would remain the same, the standard deviation of the distribution would get
smaller and smaller over time, leading to a normal curve that continuously gets narrower
and taller (See Fig. 3 in Appendix A).
