They walked down the aisle slowly. Two their left and two their right laid before them all of human history. The First Being approached one of the exhibits. “What is this?” they asked? “That is a spear” The Second Being answered. “It is a type of weapon that human beings used for thousands of years. Sometimes it was for hunting, other times it was for warfare. This spear dates back to around 10,000 B.C., prehistoric times, a time when humanity used what little technology they had for great violence.” The First Being and The Second Being continued their walk down the aisle. Curios, the first being once again approached an exhibit. “I’ve never seen this before, tell me, what is it?” The First Being asked. The Second Being replied. “That is a sword. Over many centuries human beings learned how to mine bronze, steel, and iron. They then learned how to turn those materials into the object you see before you. A weapon that was more effective on the battlefield than anything that came before. Human beings had evolved greatly at this point in time, and their greatest technological achievements allowed for much violence.” The First Being and The Second Being continued their walk, and it was not long before The First Being once again approached an exhibit. “What is that” they asked. “That is called a gun.” The Second Being Replied. “As human beings approached modern times, their desire to expand led to great conflict, and with that conflict came the dire to develop a more effective killing machine, and the piece of technology that you see before you was born. Entire wars were fought with these things, it was a period of great violence.” The First Being and The Second Being continued down the hall, but it was not long before they reached the end, where the final exhibit stood. Awe struck, The First Being asked “what on earth is that?” The Second Being replied “Humanity referred to it as an atom bomb. It is the pinnacle of human weaponry. When these were used by mankind, there was no violence afterwards, just nothing.
