The truth is that writing new code is itself a "non-linear step." People who don't write code may not understand that because all they see is a guy typing. Typing looks linear. Non-linearity is not the issue, though. The issue is we don't have an algorithm for strong AI. To suggest that AI does not require a non-linear step is to imply that AI of the human-like kind already exists and simply needs more memory and processor speed to manifest in a satisfying form. There are movies that imply or state that the AI is just a sophisticated program (Terminator, or 2001: A Space Odyssey), but these days maybe it doesn't seem credible that a programmer will simply code up an AI.
