Optimum Population
The optimum population is a concept where the human population is able to balance maintaining a maximum population size with optimal standards of living for all people. Overview Regarding the human population, end-targets for an optimum population include ecological sustainability, Output (economics), economic output, and intrinsic value (ethics), philosophical or ethical ends-in-themselves. Some commentators disagree with the concept of "optimum population", believing that the human population will always, in the long-term, be able to adapt to the requirements of a larger population. Any conception of an optimum population level must lie between a minimum viable population of the human species and the maximum level of population that can be sustained by the carrying capacity of the planet Earth. Estimations Various end-targets are often balanced together in estimating the optimum human population, and different emphasis on different end-targets cause variability among esti ...

Depiction Of The Relationship Between Population And Outcome, Focusing On Optimum Values
Depiction is reference conveyed through pictures. A picture refers to its object through a non-linguistic two-dimensional scheme, and is distinct from writing or notation. A depictive two-dimensional scheme is called a picture plane and may be constructed according to descriptive geometry, where they are usually divided between ''projections'' (orthogonal and various oblique angles) and ''perspectives'' (according to number of vanishing points). Pictures are made with various materials and techniques, such as painting, drawing, or prints (including photography and movies) mosaics, tapestries, stained glass, and collages of unusual and disparate elements. Occasionally, picture-like features may be recognised in simple inkblots, accidental stains, peculiar clouds or a glimpse of the moon, but these are special cases, and it is controversial whether they count as genuine instances of depiction. Similarly, sculpture and theatrical performances are sometimes said to depict, but this requ ...
