And sometimes I think that if Fenris had got loose, then it wouldn’t have really eaten everything. I mean, it wants to, of course, so very much it wants to, but there’s no way it actually could.

It would have run out of steam somewhere along the line. Got full. Got killed. Got linear in appetite rather than accelerating as it goes. A linear process can eat everything in finite time but that’s like pointing at that guy down in accounting and saying, “He can eat! And just keep eating, every day! He just won’t stop! He’s going to eat the world!”

That kind of boundless appetite — it doesn’t count.
