Hi, just putting down another of my scientific ponderings. Less to do with the universe this time.
I read a while ago that 99.9999etc.% of the universe is not there. No - I'm not talking about dark matter or any of that other crap they use to fill
up mass scientists can account for. There are gaps between each atom, with small gaps in the atoms themselves, meaning that just over 0% of us
exists...the rest is gaps in the atoms.
I then got to thinking about the usefulness of taking these gaps out and shrinking objects (ie a pocket-sized car which could be enlarged again).
For a while I thought that this idea was a great one.
Then I finally came to realise that the gaps were in the atoms - what could I take out? it's not air between the gaps - air is too big. I then came
to the conclusion that we are actually 99.99% nothing! Between the atoms there is a vaccuum - there is no air or any atoms - they are too
Any thoughts on this?
