Why are you screaming like that? It's obvious he either never actually shred it, or shredding it doesn't actually have the labeled effect. Think about it.
Destroying the universe would include all of its dimensions, like Time. Thus, all matter in ALL POSSIBLE POINTS IN TIME would be destroyed. This means that you would not be alive to say this because, from our inside-universe point of view, we never existed, and nor did the universe. The fact that you (and the universe) are there means that he did NOT destroy the universe.
So basically, either he didn't actually shred the bag, or shredding a bag of Holding doesn't actually destroy the universe.
I have a question myself though: If someone would destroy the universe by any means, this destruction would also mean this someone's destruction in all points in time, as previously stated. So, how could he have destroyed the universe in the first place?
Would it cause a Reality Superparadox?
Wait, no. If there's no Time outside the universe, how could something like that mather? The universe would just cease to exist, or start to exist, with no sense of chronology, because chronology doesn't even exist outside the universe.
Fuck, I'm deep here. Can anyone say anything about this?
