Scary Malthusian stuff... there. Even from a purely utilitarian, naturalist viewpoint, though, the radical abundance new APM technology will bring this century and beyond will yield almost unlimited space and material abundance for human life to grow and expand -- if the pessimists don't bring on a self-flagellating dystopia first in order to cull the herd of negative-value meat puppets. Or maybe they would cull the herd anyway, so they can selfishly head for the stars and jettison the rest of us.
