I am rereading _Peace_ again and taking notes. (Man oh man, does that ever
slow me down and make what is normally a pleasure into a chore. I don't
know how any of you scholarly types out there can do it day in and day out.)

But the up side is that I can say very quickly that if you turn to page 53,
paragraphs 6 through 10, in the Orb edition of _Peace_, you will find
Olivia Weer explaining to Professor Peacock why humanity will no longer
exist in "thousands and thousands of years" (this is on the way to the
cave). Admittedly, this is too long to be the life of an elm, but still it
ties in with what Alex David Groce says above.
