The average life span of humanity throughout all history was twenty seven years. In the nineteenth century, however, science and improved technology trebled life expectancy. As technological capabilities improved and life expectancy increased, the number of babies per family went down, demonstrating the fact that nature keeps on balancing the population figure. After major wars, when large number of young and healthy men are killed, baby-making increases.The birth rate continues to rise for five years or so after the war ends until the score is rectified. All this happens without conscious cooperation or even the knowledge of the human beings. When the probabilities of human survival are poor, nature makes many babies. When the chances of man s survival improve, nature reduces the number of new babies. 1. The author says that throughout history A Everyman died on attaining twenty seven years.
