In Christopher Nolan's Tenet, we see the main antagonist, Sator, using an algorithmic formula to
invert the entropy of the entire world. This was supposed to have cataclysmic effects on the human race, something which was evident to everyone.
This formula was initially conceived and manufactured into a physical form from a future female scientist. When she realized its potential, she split the formula into 9 pieces and hid it
into different times in the past and committed suicide, so that no one could force her make it again -hence preventing the fallout of humans.
If she was so keen on protecting the world from the formula, why didn't she just destroy it altogether? What was the point of creating it and then playing hide and seek if her goal was to protect everyone from it?
