What it’s like to be God

The Atlantic has constructed – or maybe “divined” would be the right word – a map of all the births and deaths in the United States…in real time. It looks like the picture above, with births and deaths flying up at you and no way to stop them. Over time, you start to notice how many more births there are than deaths, and then you start to think about how big a problem this is going to be.

See the map for yourself in real time here.
