      • A mix of there is still room for cities and recall what happened with the pet. Either after a threshold a new city is founded or, helped with the low birth rate, the rare occurring of someone not being able to be revived in time. Add the suicidal people and the "mind wipes". If population is below threshold X, mindwipe and new body. If population is above threshold Y, kill and claim mindwipe and new body in City Z.
