That's the problem, it's hard to imagine what we could do if we had more resources. Typically we figure out how to get more resources, and then the explosion of what to do with it happens.

I always thought it would be cool to have a fence made of fire surrounding my home. If fire were cheap, that's what I do. The gate would be a temporary halting of fire near the entrance.

We could be mining asteroids, terraforming celestial bodies, living under the sea... there's no limit to what could be done with no energy/resource limit.
