Metaphysically you could be right, but that's not how I read what
happened there. In my understanding, the fundamentalists in the writers'
universe just wrote a story that said "and everybody and everything died
horribly". The wording was probably even similar to that, which is why
Cannon Fodder could come back (dying horribly wasn't new to him).
So many of our dreams at first seem impossible,
then they seem improbable, and then, when we
summon the will, they soon become inevitable.
