In his classic science fiction novel The Stars My Destination (Vintage Books, 1996 reprint), Alfred Bester describes a psychokinetic explosive called PyrE—so powerful that a single grain of it can blow up a house. And all that is needed for it to blowup is for anyone to just think at it and want it to explode. The hero of the story has to decide whether to keep it locked up and secret or to spread it around the planet leaving the fate of the world in the hands and thoughts of every single person on earth.
