Watchmen: Danger

Linked by Paul Ciano on January 31, 2017

Dr. Manhattan, as you know, the Doomsday Clock is a symbolic clock face analogizing humankind’s proximity to extinction. Midnight representing the threat of nuclear war. As of now, it stands at 4 minutes to midnight. Do you agree that we’re that close to annihilation?

My father was a watchmaker. He abandoned it when Einstein discovered that time was relative. I would only agree that a symbolic clock is as nourishing to the intellect, as a photograph of oxygen to a drowning man.

So you’re saying there is no danger.

Even in a world without nuclear weapons, there would still be danger.
