    At any one time means "within a specific length of time." I'm not sure that your translation captures that. The idea is that we humans can absorb a lot of new ideas, but that absorption takes time, so in a limited amount of time, our ability to absorb is also limited. The literal idea is "durante cualquier tiempo determinado," but you can probably find something that sounds more natural.

    Y basta con los signos de exclamación. :)
