Greetings, people of OA

Hello Orion's Arm members,

My name is Rho Ophiuchi, and I am a new member on this site. I was originally referenced to it two years ago when I became an avid fan of Issac Arthur's youtube channel, but more recently I found that people in various communities tend to reference material here when describing technological concepts. As such, I decided to join in order to actively absorb information from those who have been working at this for an extremely long time. I also exist on the website NationStates.net (as Rho Ophiuchi), and the Fandom wiki for Spore (as SoftXrayEmmiter108 - yes I know that is misspelled, but by the time I figured it out I could not do anything about it).

My main question at this moment is the following: If the average human (or nearbaseline, as the case may be) uses approximately 100 W of chemical energy, which, to be conservative, I will assume could only be fabricated in nanofacs at 10% efficiency from chemical feedstock, then each human would be using approximately 1 kW of power. As some people have more resources than others, I will make this 6 kW for the average person. If the region of known space that humans have existed in for a thousand years or more contains a hundred million stars, then it would have a luminosity approximately 2500 times smaller than the milky way's 5E+36 W, so 2E+33W, for the purposes of this thought experiment. This would lead to a population of something on the order of 300 Octillion. Why is this not the case in the OA universe?

Sincerely,
Rho Ophiuchi

P.S. I have never used this interface before, so if something does not translate over correctly, please inform me so I can attempt to correct it.
