Population


Question

The world’s human population is increasing by the second. On the other hand, the resources and the capacity of this world remain limited. Some day the world will be unable to cope with the situation. What will happen then?

Answer

This is not the only plane of existence. The Buddha stated that there are thirty-one (31) planes of existence. As one plane increases in population, another reduces.

All planes are not static, but dynamic. All are subject to impermanence. At every moment each is rising or falling. When the earth fills with more people, the population has to reduce in another plane. The cycle will reach equilibrium but there will be a switch in that trend too.
