planets part of an atom?

An interesting thought, I would contribute by bringing up the possibility of taking your thought and turning it around, so to speak...

What if the things we know as "atoms" were actually solar systems and we and everything around us was actually made up of those solar systems that could potentially harbor some form of tiny intelligent life?

:eek: That would be crazy. :smoke::smoke:


Can we start banning people from this sub-forum if they go in here and post a bunch of pseudoscientific shit?


Your a close minded fuck and we need to ban members like you douche bag

Meh, I'll agree this should've been posted in S&P, but still give the OP a break. If you're looking at it in comparison to the Bohr model of the atom, which is what almost anyone that hasn't had a college chemistry course would think of the atom as, and the assumption that electrons are an actual 'solid' particle instead of more of a wave, which also would be assumed before a college chemistry course, it's fairly easy to see the similarities the OP referred to and to understand how he came about the idea in the first place. Is the hypothesis flawed in many ways? Yeah, but still should he get 3 pages of getting straight bashed for asking the questions "Why" and "What if"? I can understand explaining the flaws, but at least encourage the mindset. For all we know the OP could one day be a real scientist and come up with some crazy ass idea that saves human life or the planet.

But still could be wrong. Humans in all honesty, dont know jack shit in the grand scheme of things


OK - first off, bullshit. We know a whole fucking lot. I hate the whole "we really don't know anything" statement. Humans are an impressive bunch when it comes to how much they have figured out about the world around them and used that information to manipulate it. Then we even have manged to create external memories (books, computers, etc) that provide us with the brain capacity to learn more! We are fucking intelligent beasts (and yes, I know that is oxymoronic with my utter opinion that we are fucking stupid beasts but that is more about information use and the fact that we could be doing so much better). Humans know a lot, there is just a lot to know. Wisdom comes from the acknowledgement that your knowledge is not complete. Not that we "don't know jack shit".

@OP

Everything you're saying is possible, but really think about it. Do you really think given the current knowledge that we possess, that it's logical?

Yeah but dude you have to realise quantum physical and macrophysical laws are completely different. While it's entirely possible that our reality is something that no-one would EVER dream of, what you're proposing makes no genuine sense according to the physical constants that we're aware of.

The macrophysical world is governed by quantum interactions.

Intelligence is relative. Yes, we're smart as shit compared to insects or fish, but when you look at everything there is to know about the entire universe, we still don't know very much. Saying human beings are "stupid" or "smart" is like saying something is moving "fast" without giving context. "Fast" could mean anything from like 1 m/s to 299,792,458 m/s.

The misconception that electrons have a defined orbit is probably the basis for this 'theory' popping up every so often. It's similar to the notion that the universe must be a brain, because a 'picture of the universe' kinda looked like another picture of neurons.

This of course is only one major flaw in the concept. Consider also the fact that electrons are all the same, and do not feature lakes, skyscrapers and clouds.

What if the whole universe is an atom of another universe? And in our universe each atom is another universe, but so small we will never know?

There are to many differences between orbit of objects around the multiple galaxies in our universe and what we know about subatomic particles for it to possibly be true. I can understand where the idea comes from, but as I said before electrons don't have a defined orbit, nor even really mass. Electrons behave like a wave. The Bohr model of the atom you're bringing back from HS chem is incorrect. All in all, keep questioning your reality (as it's good for your mind), but your hypothesis is definitely faulty.

the plants are just parts of an atom?


i hope scientist figure out were just part of a much bigger world


I belive we are part of something


They are all connected by Standing Wave Resonance. From the smallest electron, to the most super massive star.


this isn't to say that what our solar system does make, and galaxies, couldn't be a part of some higher order system, like atoms are the building blocks of ours, our universe even:hippie:

I quoted the above because every piece of matter that exists is part of one single unit in constant motion. Allow me to explain:

You and your computer as you read these lines are one single unit because the atoms right at the very edge of your eyeballs are continually making and breaking bonds with the atoms that make the space/air between your eyeball and the atoms on the very edge of your screen. The oxygen, nitrogen, and various other gas atoms that constitute the flowing air around you are constantly bonding with the carbon and other atoms on the absolute edge of your eyeball.

Expanding this, the same applies to your fingertips and your keyboard....your arm and the wall....ad infinitum for all existant matter in our universe.

An electron is basically a tiny little piece of electricity.

Is a planet a tiny little piece of electricity? Clearly not, otherwise everything on Earth would be electrocuted.

Also using "they both spin around the big inside thing" as a supporting argument is just dumb. You could say the same thing about a model solar system, but it's pretty obvious that a model solar system is not an atom.


wait but if the earth did not exist how would we have electricity?
