The Roman Philosopher Lucius Anneaus Seneca (4 BCE-65 CE) was perhaps the first to note the universal trend that growth is slow but ruin is rapid. I call this tendency the "Seneca Effect."

Seneca Cliff? What Seneca Cliff?

  1. This curve, as replicated later in your article in an abbreviated republication of John Calhoun's Mouse Universe study graph of population numbers, is actually formed by the underlying population curve. All human activity follows the population curve. Not mentioned in any of your material is the "Last Born,1Mar,1973" comment at the apex of Calhoun's 1973 publication of the true Mouse Universe study. The 1962 study was done with Norway Rats and terminated early. Our neuro-endocrine systems are currently making us increasingly sick and killing us off. This is the true driver of population collapse, ancient and modern. Stress R Us.
