The obsolete consciousness II

On August 6th 1945, at 8:15 a.m. local time, the plane Enola Gay dropped an atomic bomb onto Hiroshima. Just 43 seconds later it exploded 1,900 feet above the city, killing 140.000 people.

One part of this obsolete consciousness had learned how to obtain energy by splitting matter. Another part had decided to use this knowledge to fight another part of the same consciousness, divided by something called nationality. Another part flew over Hiroshima and dropped it..... Then a part of the consciousness celebrated the success with joy and another part was crying with pain......
