dear oligarch,


question


what is the significance of the number


137, 438, 953, 472 ?


answer


it is the number of the descendants that will exist in the year 2925 if two children born in 2025 each have two children and that a rate of increase of two children per child per generation is maintained for the next twenty-seven generations


because the loss of children, currently eighteen-thousand each day, is unacceptable, this commitment will expire at the end of 2025
