even if you have 1-2 children, if you're living to 200, you could conceivably see 6, 7, 8 generations of your descendants. Which, from an egotistical standpoint, might be interesting. But from a population standpoint, it's just going to make things worse.

Before we conquer two centuries of life, we need to find somewhere else to start putting people.

What if instead of living that long as we're thinking now, you could live for 400 years, but only spend part of it awake? For instance, spend 1 year out of three in stasis. Or 2 out of 4 years.
