When the average number of child births in a country continues to fall, distant cousins can become meaningful relationships. This was part of the premise of how I first wrote this chapter. Then I considered whether borrowed sleep would encourage you to have more children, whether as a client or a sleeper. I pessimistically wrote that with more hours, you may want to really focus on the one child as a client. And by the time this future comes, perhaps more stringent population controls would be in place. For sleepers, I figure it would be even more discouraging having more children, only because there might be so little time between multiple jobs (though you could put them on the market at 8 to bring in extra income). So I imagined a world where the birth rate continued to crash. That philosophical chapter was mostly deleted, but the key premise drives the root of what remains. Enjoy.
