I read many years ago that the answer to the old philosophical question:
"What happens when an Irresistible Force meets and Immovable Object?"
One of them ceases to be Irresistible or Immovable.
I think it was Asimov who wrote that, but I could be wrong.
I think the question itself is flawed in any number of ways.
It may even be the wrong question entirely.
What faces us in the world today is another question (Presuming Civilization to be a Juggernaut):
What happens when the Juggernaut meets the Abyss?
The Abyss wins, every time.
