I mean, if you become all-powerful, nothing can restrain you from advancing further. If you unlock all the "God Tools" there really is nothing left to do, right? I feel like this contradicts with thrive's core theme of evolution and adaptation. If you are omnipotent, surely no other forces could compete with you.
the Space Stage should be the final stage. Also to make the game less overpowered I think certain God Tools should be restricting, meaning that if you unlock one tool, you lose access to another. This would keep the game more balanced, and would make the player strategize what tools to research and utilize.
While its true that Ascension would be kinda boring, it may not be boring to certain people. Though heres the thing: Its entirely optional. If you wanna be an omnipotent God like Being, then go ahead. If you wanna be a tiny space faring civilization on the edge of the galaxy, Go ahead. Heck if you wanna just be a tribal civilization forever that's (Persumably) possible.
Imagination is the essence of Scientific Discovery!

The idea of Ascension is that it's basically Sandbox mode. The competing stops at the end of Space Stage because you have won the game (if it's your objective to complete it) and your reward is to mess about with it as you like.
