Is it becoming more difficult to have your rating reach your year of birth?

With a rating of negative 4? The fact that there was no Year Zero (1 BC was immediately followed by 1 AD) also mucks up ratings from that era.

roughly if you triple the ELO population you add a class. It takes 3 generations to double the World's population. 200 years would Quadruple the world population. number of players per rating class increase faster than number of years. population increase is exponential. Time is linear. However we are reaching the Earth's maximum sustainable population. Soon cellphone's will be integrated within our anatomy. Chess will become a battle of internal computers. That could end the interest in chess.

That, and also tree population will get severely impacted by the growing demand for wooden chess pieces. Which will kill humans and with them chess players
