    You have this backward, as though the graph creates the growth. No, if you reset it at that point, you will go BACK to exponential growth until you get back to the point it goes linear again as population densities resume slowing the growth. You can reset the graph, but it wont just continue where it left off, with a lower cap, it will go BACK to where it was exponential. If half the population died/disappeared people would again need the extra help children provide after society collapsed. Which absolutely WOULD happen.

    "You just snap your fingers and double everything. Or, why stop there? You make it infinite!"
    Let me stop you right there. While Thanos was radical and I disagree with him completely, I would also disagree with the notion of doubling all resources. You do mean resources, right? If I were a genie, I'd have doubled everything--two earths, two suns, two MatPats, 2 bottles of water next to my computer.
    Anyway, what he's talking about is the rate at which life forms are consuming resources is larger than the rate of which those resources are being produced. Consumption of resources > Creation of resources. If, with a snap of your fingers, you double everything, things will only get worse. More resources mean more room for consumers. Now, this isn't always the case, like you said during the Black Death. But it's sometimes the case. If you give people more stuff, they're more likely to require more things and maybe make more consumers. Thus the consumption of resources rises while the creation of resources declines even faster. That would mean that, for a short while, everything is awesome. Then the "Roarin' Twenties" end and suddenly you are in the Great Depression.
    Of course, purging half of everything isn't the solution, either. I mean, goodness, has Thanos ever played a resource management game? All those resources you're running low on... yeah. You need people to run them. If you have a game running strong, but the population begins to rise a bit too high, you can always purge a few of your people however you want to. Then, what happens to everyone else? Farms and factories are still running at max capacity. With a production place that requires 50 people gets trimmed down to 25 (if you're being even and not just kicking out the old, sick, and uneducated), it will eventually buckle. Sure, you'll have a lot. But you'll have A LOT. In order t keep that farm or factory from collapsing under its own weight, you need to suck people out from other jobs, potentially shutting down other farms or factories, draining places like schools and hospitals of staff, and creating a generally unhappy public. Eventually, things would balance out and equilibrium would be reached, but it would be better to just let them sit out the low supply until more resources could be found/created.

    Thanos would’ve been right but since he can instantly disintegrate half of the life on Earth then with the Infinity gauntlet he could’ve just doubled all of our resources and then be fully supported and never have to fight the Avengers as well as being the greatest hero of Earth!

    Is another big problem with Thanos and his idea. Decreasing the population by half is not automatically going to make everything better they will be more stuff around for more people and prices will go down but that doesn't mean it will get two more people many of the people who are left will probably afford more and they would have before because it's cheaper problem is not the amount of materials the problem is getting the material to the people who need it we have more than enough food shelter and everything else in the us alone to be able to end world hunger and famine but we don't because the US doesn't have to do that they don't have to ship food to North Korea War Africa or other places that are struggling. And there is the problem human greed that is the problem decreasing the population of most places is not going to change that it's not going to make the US suddenly ship tons of tons of food to Africa just because half the population of both countries is missing if anything it'll mean more materials going to waste

    Correct me if I am mistake but would someone need 4 kids for exponential growth? 1 to replace him 1 to replace the spouse 1 to do a general increase and the other for the double?

  • Lia the cartoon maker

    Am I the only one who thinks thanos is like bill cipher first they both came to earth to put their rules in it like bill cipher's weird meggaden and thanos snap to remove 1/2 of the universe also they both saw their own home burn as bill saw his dimension burn and misses home but can't return and thanos' planet was destroyed by overpopulation last they both think that what are they are doing is mercy as bill thinks that he would make the world better and happier and thanos' thinks by doing that is a small price to pay to save the universe
    Thanks for reading my polite theory

    The problem with your theory is that the increased availability of resources will bring back the exponential population growth. We fill the space available.

    Problem with Thanos's theory. The universe is not finite, is is ever-expanding. Another thing, he is a communist, only under athoritarian communistical rule, where all are equal would this math even factor in much less be doable. Ignoring the huge shortages that it generates, culling half of your takers will increase the size of the pie pieces. Remember kids, communism sucks.
    However, there is another torpedo in the Marvel Universe that sinks him. Tony Stark, not just because he made god bleed, but the tech he was using to do it with. Self-replicating nanotechnology is a gateway to what is known as a Post-Scarcity Economy (PSE). The best example of a post scarcity economy is Star Trek where replicators can build damn near everything. Well, this type of nanotechnology combined with vibrainum arc reactor technology would drive down the costs of most basic goods. Instead of cutting demand, you are skyrocketing supply off the graph.
    Demand will adjust, but as seen now as 3d printing is becoming mainstream, microfabrication is decreasing public demand of certain goods. Even though this is still in it's infancy and still regarded by many as a novelty, it has the potential to deliver on that type of promise. It isn't perfect, but still beats murdering trillions of innocent people.

    3 postcredit scenes ... 1-the original avengers´ tower... happy is talking to some guy finishing the sell of the building. suddenly a big noise outside, we see that a big piece of the A in the avengers´ logo on the outside wall fells down. The remains resemble the number 4. We see the face of that guy looking at it, the camera follows down his extremely enlongated neck back. 2- "Many years ago"... Thanos is fighting someone and he is not happy. He is about to hit somebody when he gets cut in his face... three long cuts just below one of his eyes... he looks worried and the camera turns to show a hand with three blades coming out from it... a voice says: "let´s finish this, bub!" and the fights resumes. 3 - It´s all dark... we hear some footsteps, a familiar face comes to us, he is Stan Lee, he talks directly to the camera: "It´s been my pleausure guiding you all through this universe and adventures. But it´s time for me to go watch some other realities and heroes. You be good to each other and remember that you will be all here in my heart. See you around!"... he walks away and suddenly, he starts to glow and transforms into a big figure, big bald head that turns around and put a finger to his lips and makes a noise... shhhh!

    No MatPat, just no. You AND Thanos clearly need to go back to school and take some stats and math courses. Maybe I'm thinking too much into this, but if the snap truly kills 50% of the world's human population randomly and totally indiscriminately AND all in one instant, the result would be much more statistically likely to de-populate the developing world than high-income countries. If you think about it, almost 60% of the world's population is in Asia (18.5% in China alone) vs 4.3% in the USA and less than 0.5% in my home country of Canada. So unless Thanos is running a very complex random number generating algorithm that takes population distribution into account (which I highly doubt), this culling is not going to work out how you think it will. I guess you can only expect so much from a genocidal purple idiot and a theatre major

    He actually described the population growth in relation to wages. Here’s how he described it. Higher wages led to more kids, which led to lower wages, which led to less kids, which led to higher wages, which led to more kids, and on and on and on. He describes it as a cycle that will never break. In your case MatPat, you’re substituting money for natural resources. Same basic concept.

    Some things to note: It's easier to destroy than to create. Also doubling something would be four times as hard to do as halving something.
    Also also, the gauntlet was destroyed in the process of halving all life in the galaxy, so I don't think it could handle doubling all the resources, yet alone making infinite resources.
