It's intellectually rewarding to dig inside the atom - to divine ever deeper understanding of quantum physics by smashing and breaking those things like the adolescent schoolboy unravelling his parent's computer.

Unfortunately, quantum physics draws a line in the sand. On this side of the line, we are in the realm of what normal existence does, when lightning strikes and frogs multiply, and people have sex, and we eat cilantro. On the other side of that line we're playing with our reality in a negative way. We're playing with things like nuclear bombs, entangled photons, and Higgs bosons. Permutations of those things may have catastrophic consequences - and instead of impacting whether one frog mates with another, we impact whether one planet survives or it does not. We should just stop playing with these things. The downside is too far.
