David: Weaponization

“That’s a planetbuster bomb?” asked the general, looking askance at the ballpoint-sized object.

“Of a sort,” answered the scientist. “It’s impossible to build a physical object containing sufficient energy to destroy a planet while not being either antimatter or a planet itself. Instead, this contains the idea of destroying a planet.”


“Our imaginations are infinite, so if we can tap into it, we get enough power to do anything we want. This transduces imagination into kinetic energy at a rate exceeding 500 megafancies, which, obviously, will do the job.”

“But… it’s so small.”

“It’s not that big an idea.”
