A visualization of galactic settlement
Ultimately there are two growth laws here: Exponential growth of biology, economics, etc, and cube-law growth of bounded space. Cube law growth ultimately bounds exponential growth, and while that's true, the exponent doesn't matter.

The observation here is that galactic orbits mean the cube expands *REGARDLESS* of the rate of exponential growth. Whether the exponent is high (once a century) or low (once in ten millennia) we ultimately wind up expanding within the same cube-law limit, and have access to the same set of worlds.
