What makes you claim that? We have little understanding of
intelligence; we don't know how easy or hard increases in intelligence
will turn out to be; we're not even certain how high the advantages of
increased intelligence will turn out to be.

It could be a series of increasing returns, and the advantages could
be huge - but we really don't know that. "Most likely scenario" is
much to strong a thing to say.
