Do you have any justification for that number? Does it bother you that the current population is around 15 times that?

This seems an almost impossible question to answer as I do not know what food production could potentially increase to in the future and there are many limiting factors which would prevent a huge number of people surviving including space to build houses , food , drink , cleanliness, etc theroetically though given an infinite amount of space and resource the human population could unceasingly increase
