This one petty thief was run over by a car.  When he wakes up, he finds himself in Heaven. Everything he had ever dreamed is at his beckon.  At first he is careful with the new gain fortune for fear of revealing whom he really was.  But as time goes on, the lure is simply too great to suppress.  So, he quickly allowed himself all the self-indulgence that he could dream.

Well, this doesn't last long.  The good life is great but boring.  He must do something about the boredom.  So he goes to the proper official, the GOD.  He demands to double check HIS records on him.  HE does it and it all checks out fine. Then, in desperation, he demands to be sent to Hell, instead. HE replies: "This is Hell."

The motto of the story is obvious.  But we are interested in solving our problem of overpopulation.  The key here is in what this story suggested: A dream machine.

The computer games we have today are already predecessors of such a dream machine.  In fact, unknowingly, our pursuit of a materialistic society is creating a vast market for such machines.  All we need to do is racing ahead of the overpopulation crisis by way of constructing such a machine.  ROBACUS can do it.

ROBACUS is a robotized Chinese abacus. Once applied to a Chinese environment of knowledge communism based on an Open Computing Network, its software automation technology will be able to create a virtual reality head- and body-gear that satisfies the specifications of a dream machine.

What the machine can do is saving the Earth a lot of spaces and resources when most of the ravages of materialistic pursuit are now performed in virtual space by the ambitious and aggressive among us.

Any one who doesn't want be himself can find a new self in the machine.  He would, for instance, not only have all his prayers met, but also meet the God who answered the prayers. People who are not satisfied with the amount of money they make, the size of the enemy they destroy, or just want something but don't want to pay the price, could opt for the machine and get what they want, nondestructively. And finally, anyone who routinely relegates his health and even mental state to the charge of doctors and drugs, legal or otherwise, could get the ultimate care in the paradise of the dream machine.

All we need now is just creating a huge repository for the bodies of these "dream people".  The rule should be if anyone decides not to toughen out with the simple and plain lives on the bare Earth, then they would get three chances to experience the good life in the machine.  After that, in the fourth time, they would be put in an "eternal-life machine" and stay there forever, which is as far as how they would be made to perceive it.

So, now the prerequisite for living one's own real-life life is one of self-suppression.  Purposefulness would replace happiness.  Protecting the Earth will replace consuming it.  Improving humanity should be the one unwavering goal of all those who decide to toughen it out outside the dream machine.

Construction of the dream machine would also be the beginning of the end to all mankind's technological, as well as materialistic, pursuits.  Once this end-it-all machine is made, we can all go back to produce better human beings.

Hey Joe!

The world cannot sustain over population!
We don't need a life support system to support surplus humans.

All we need to do, is to pack them into cities like New York, Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo, London, Paris, ....and we'll have population declining while creating space for more immigration!

When the "powers to be" want to prevent Gotham-like problems...
They get Magicians of Gods or Demons going all out battles in barren regions suchas Erithea, Java.....limiting their own numbers....


or we can have A CHINESE BUREACRACY who carefully manipulates in order to have sufficient resources and quality of life for its citizens!

Watch population control "kicking in" in Africa, Java, Patani, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan....as excessive Orthodox Ethopian Christians starts to slaughter excessive population of Black Islamic Arabs.
There is already "natural population control" among excessive consuming societies of Europe, White North America, Japan, Hong Kong, Korea and Singapore!

Either you do it via careful manipulation, or Mother Nature will take charge!!!

I don't know if you read Chinese bbs lately. A few Chinese netizens advocate abolishing one child policy in China. They want 2 children. Some echoed them by blaming the one child policy created aging population and spoiled child problems.

aging population has been growing and will cause serious problem if no measures are taken in advance for its protection...it's urgently requested  that an effective insurance system be established before it's too late so that most of the aging population will be able to benefit from it..., otherwise, i darenot imagine...really..! i can't tell how many rural seniors will suffer from the lack of care and support by their grown-up children and die in loneliness and poverty...!!!!

China has to keep one-child policy

I totally support the one-child policy since it is suitable for China's real situation. When Chinese people are
not allowed to have more than one child, they find any excuse to have another kid because of the traditional
idea: more children mreans more happiness. Another good example is that overseas Chinese are always
have more children because they do not need to obey the policy. China is already over-populated and cannot
survive with more and more families with kids. One family with one child policy has effectively controlled this
problem so that it cannot be abandoned. As for the aging problem, the society should develop various
service for senior citizens, but encourage more kids to be born.
