C. illustrates what happens when 30,000 atomic bombs are detonated on the face of Earth: for a brief moment, complex nuclear fission and fusion cycles begin. 
For an infinitesimal fraction of a second, all matter and energy on Earth converges into one form, into all shapes and eventually into none. For the briefest moment suspended amidst a void of time, all things are all animals, and all animals want to say their goodbyes.

These are the last words of animals that now rest in a nuclear cloud of absolute love. Forlorn is your light, dear atoms, lucid may your freedom be!
