a philosophical question.

there’s quite known science theory out there which have shown that in the space of one cm3 anywhere in our universe there’s enough energy to create all the visible matter. it also means that releasing that energy, which is usually in quantum equilibrium and thus having no effect on surrounding matter, you could destroy everything as far as we can see in the universe. in fact, to destroy the planet, the solar system, and the entire galaxy, the necessary amount of energy is present in space way less than one mm3, so the theoretically possible bomb could be of a size less than naked human eye can see. the philosophical question is would you trigger such a device? would you end all the suffering that living beings must endure, or would you let it go on? is the life us such — not yours, the business of life in general — worth the suffering in the name of little joy which even not every living being knows of? ..
