Which is why there needs to be more than one group of decrepit, old folks that constitutes the "Supreme Court".
The Constitution says there is only 1 Supreme Court, but it doesn't say how that can be implemented.
There is the same number of Supreme Courts today as there were 200+ years ago, and we have 60 times the population. They are clearly a bottleneck in our legal system, so it's not unreasonable to suggest there should perhaps be 540 SCOTUS Justices in 60 chambers, hearing cases at 60 times the current rate.
