  1. I consider it more of Moore’s observation, than a law really. There is no scientific reason or effect that would cause transistors to double every year. Someone just noticed a trend that the transistors happened to roughly be doubling every year. I’m sure many in the field noticed this, it’s not exactly some magical discovery. Moore just opened his mouth first I guess and made a deal about it as if he discovered something amazing. I never understood why this is even a thing. There are trends in everything, many which are consistent for long periods of time. Pointing out a trend isn’t exactly a ground breaking discovery, they are all around us.
