GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 19th November at noon SLT: The Day of 8 billion!


Last week our species reached 8 billion people.  Let’s celebrate humanity today, we clearly won the genetic lottery.  8 billion and all of them better fed and in better health than they have ever been.  And maybe we are a boon to the planet as well.  An intelligent species managing the world ecosystem! We have fought against the harsh conditions of life and against our own violent, malicious nature and we have won.

Where do we go from here?  Do you think the population should and will decline to some ideal population number?  What is the ideal population for Earth?  Can we know without knowing all the inventions and discoveries of the future?  Or should we increase in numbers to fill the whole universe?

When will we reach 100 billion? Join us in GeekSpeak on Saturday at noon SLT to discuss the future of our species.  Bring all your family!

IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday in the GeekSpeak auditorium, if you have ideas for new subjects.
