Summary:Felipe Fernandez Armesto, Oxford historian and writer, enters the Theatre of Memory. From the computer in which is stored the sum of all knowledge, he can call up holograms of people from the past. Tonight he summons Alfred Nobel, inventor of dynamite and the founder of the eponymous Peace Prize. Fernandez Armesto quizzes Nobel about his unhappy life and the effects of his invention and patronage. Nobel's life was full of pain and sorrow without personal happiness, yet he believed the only way to end wars was to terrify mankind with weapons of mass destruction. "War must be made as death dealing to the civilian population at home as to the troops at the front. All war will stop instantly if the weapon is bacteriological."
