The Very Possibility of Nuclear War
The Very Possibility of Nuclear War
I have said over the past two weeks that the war in Ukraine has left me “speechless”. But I have not been entirely forthcoming about the deepest causes of this condition. It is true that I am horrified by all the destruction and death; I am worried about people I know and care about trapped inside Ukraine (and inside Russia); I am conventionally worried about the ravages of conventional war. Yet my deeper dread does not stop with conventional war, but with what this war may become if it escalates.
let’s be honest, time is almost certainly illusory, or not at all what we think it is, and so for our world to end “at time T”, as the philosophers say, in no way negates the reality of everything that happened at time T-minus-1. The past is real. Every event, properly understood, is eternal.
