According to dependent origination theory , when the conditions is Sufficient then things , events and being will come to be .
For that reason , the whole of existences could produce and reproduce , it is like the cell divide into two or more , from many merging into one and replicate itself .
Mahatanhasankya sutta explains the relationship of rebirth and paticca samuppada in a manner to explain ending of samsara. I do not think Lord budda was ever worried about a population increase.
If humans can attain nirvana or reach marga phala then there will be a population decrease.
Attaining nibbana is a very rare occurrence , population decrease does not reciprocal with humans attaining liberation .
yes my friend James Tan,
I wish also to remark on those going to lower realms with the present day living. What can we think about them. Of course there will be lots and a big gap to fill up.
