Hi Christer,

I can not help contributing to "offtopic" as well :)

You did not consider populating the surface/atmosphere in layers,
or the oceans through the depth, did you?

27 mm2 multipied by 20 km height is 0.54 m3 which is a lot,
as circus artists experimentally proved that it is possible to pack
an adult human into 50x50x50 cm (0.125 m3) still keeping him/her alive.
So, we would have more that 4 times margin for survival!


There are also some other amounts which grow, as e.g. the number of
the networked hosts or something else we do not think about now.
Like allocating myriads of accounts per person, for some yet unknown reason...

Fully agreed!
