"Of all the powers in the world, which is the most powerful?"
"The most powerful is the human power."
"How?"
"For all the things in the world, it is only the humans who set the value."
"It's true."
"The humans who set high value for gold and diamonds do not understand their own value."
"So what?"
"That's why humans became cheap. Human lives have also become cheap."

A day in the past.
The world's first atom bomb comes into existence.
The power of the brain creates that super power.
It is made under the supervision of the scientist Dr. Robert Oppenheimer.
Yes.
Now it is waiting for the orders of the humans.
At this stage...
The American parliament gathers.
There the scientist talks.
He speaks in detail.
Members shoot arrows of questions.
He answers all the questions with patience.
He explains how the effects would be if the atom bomb explodes.
They listen without blinking their eyes.
A member stands up...

"Are there any truly strong and safe measures to prevent that disastrous weapon?"
"Definitely, there is," says the scientist.
Everyone stands up and asks curiously: "What is that?"

Oppenheimer slowly looks up at them.
Then he says,"That is peace."
