When people live for 1,000 years, will there still be children?
When Indefinite Life Extension - i.e. Immortality - is attained, will human beings still want to reproduce - will they desire to have children?
Will the longing to make, train, and support babies disappear if people can live indefinitely? Or will it vanish, because the primary reason for spawning children is due to our desire to “live” into the future?
Will having children be discouraged or sanctioned against due to overpopulation?
Will the education of children be seen as a tediously slow and dreary way to advance intelligence? Or will we figure out a way to upload high intellect into baby bodies?
Or, inversely, if humans are “young” forever, will we all have dozens, or even hundreds of offspring?
