Recently, I've been thinking a lot about numbers. Take money, for example. Everyone thinks it's better to have a lot than a little, but it seems like once someone gets too much of it, they become burdened with it. This also applies to that wonderful, beneficial invention of cars: too many of them, and they become an inconvenience. They're bad for the atmosphere, too. And though I believe every human life is important beyond measure, if a country with more than ten billion people were to come into being... Hmm, that's a scary thought.
