(quoted from Annals of Klepsis)
The humanly inhabited universe, according to the best  or at least the newest  mathematical theory, does have a tertiary focus, and it is there that it is vulnerable. The humanly inhabited universe, with its four suns and its seventeen planets, is an unstable closed system of human orientation and precarious balance, a kinetic threedimensional ellipse in form, with its third focus always approaching extinction. As with any similar unstable premisesystem, the entire construct must follow its third focus into extinction. This is known as the `Doomsday Equation.'
The equation has been badmouthed because it originated on an asteroid and not a planet; but must we forever believe that planetary mathematics is always superior to asteroid mathematics?...
