Can black holes be annihilated, despite their capacity to annihilate everything?
To set the stage, we ignite the world's complete nuclear arsenal around our diminutive black hole in a cataclysmic display of destruction. Black holes, by nature, engulf anything that ventures past their event horizon, consuming both matter and energy. Given Einstein's iconic equation, E = mc², all the energy absorbed by a black hole amplifies its mass. As mass correlates directly with a black hole's size, detonating nuclear weapons near our tiny black hole inadvertently swells its size and mass.
Is Civilization on the Brink of Collapse?
During the zenith of the Roman Empire, it accommodated approximately 30% of the world's population and was considered a pinnacle of human progress. Its citizens enjoyed the luxuries of central heating, concrete, double glazing, advanced banking, international trade, and opportunities for upward social mobility. Rome held the distinction of being the first city in history with a million inhabitants and served as a hub for technological, legal, and economic advancements. It appeared as an unassailable empire, characterized by stability, wealth, and power.
