# How do you stop an unstoppable force?

You can't. Hence the name 'unstoppable'. An unstoppable force, upon hitting something, would push the other object aside and continue onwards. The only problem is if you have both an unstoppable force and an immovable object. The force can't push the object aside, and the object can't stop the force. The solution is fairly simple, however - the unstoppable force is deflected off to the side when the two collide. It isn't stopped, but continues in a different direction. The immovable object doesn't move. Easy. Alternately, the following happens: the unstoppable force continues straight onwards, and the object doesn't move. Since the two can't change in their actions, space itself is twisted to allow the force to pass through the object without moving it in any way. Having an unstoppable force and an immovable object is both theoretically and practically impossible anyway, so this entire line of questioning is fairly pointless.
