WHY WOULD YOU LIKE TO STAND THERE?

ORESTES: This explosion is quicker than an envious human thought. Infinitely faster than the moving fingers of a clever robber in front of a pocket full of money or of a smiling magician ready to do a trick on us. After the blinding detonation no one would realize that everything had disappeared because there would be nobody to confirm it. At one moment, life would continue as usual with their exceedingly delicious sexual urgency, their philosophical disjunctive and their consecutive dilemmas. On the next, in the middle of the smoke, the colossal explosion with its immense ball of fire would have relentlessly destroyed a great part of that city and would be advancing towards the periphery, as if galloping under the beat of the Overture of William Tell... If you are standing at the hypocenter of the explosion, you will blow up and disappear, together with half of that apothetical and transcendental city, in less than a hundredth of a second, leaving an immense area of black rubble with exposed high voltage wires, leaking gas ducts, fallen sharp objects and fires... So, why would you like to stand there?
