  1. Two thoughts.

    1. Sentience of the dome.

    2. Self sustaining community.

    1. I keep seeing people refer to the dome as if it’s sentient, as if it has a will of it’s own. The characters of the show do this too, but I take issue with the characterization. I think the dome is controlled by something, or someone and it is just a tool by which that entity is enacting it’s will. I supposed the dome itself could be a sentient being, with hopes and dreams of it’s own. For many reasons that just seems unlikely.

    2. You ask how does the teacher know how long the community could continue after culling. She’s not talking about how long they could live until exhausing their resources. It’s a farming community, as long as the sunlight keeps coming in they will be able to grow things which they can feed to people and livestock. The animals and waste vegetation can be used to fertilize more growth. It’s how towns used to sustain themselves hundreds of years ago. It’s completely reasonable to be able to estimate the held of planting and existing animals with a simple formula on how much each person would need. And it’s reasonably to conclude that there’s a number above which they couldn’t feed everyone.
