I guess that you mean that when the human population is getting near 
the magical
18 Ep (Exapeople) we will have some other problems to solve:

We now have about 6 Gp, if that grows exponentially unlimited doubling 
each
10 years or so, we would reach 18 Ep in about 315 years or so.
However that size of a population would have only about 27 mm2 surface 
each
on this planet - If we populate the oceans as well, that is...

If we could survive at the surface of the Sun we would have 1.32 m2 
each, wow!

bc is still a useful program.
