The universe is an Atom

The reason for a similarity between the behaviour of atoms and our solar system is that physics generally applies to all matter in the same way. Though things do change a little when we delve deeper into the sub-atomic level, where we begin to use specialised quantum physics.

Perhaps our pulsating universe is merely one tiny sub-atomic particle of a much larger universe.

This is a subject I have been studying with great interest. There are two videos on YouTube that say this is a Hologram; that in effect we are not our bodies:

Holographic Universe

However, I am a bit concerned that these videos do not show the entire video, as the complete video goes on to say that the Creator that maintains this Hologram for us to live through is called "Allah".

It is also interesting to look at cymatics, which are basically implying that all creation is the result of Energy At Frequency:
Cymatics - Bringing Matter To Life With Sound

This is what i believe but more of each atom is a universe and such so its like a atom Fractal in which each solar system is an atom of the universe which is an atome of a much large thing along with our own atoms being smaller universes with smaller ones inside of that. it seems pretty reasonable to me

One point...

We cannot see individual atoms because they a much much smaller that the wave length of the highest frequency of visible light.

So would this atom solar system or whatever have light?

Hows that for a head hurter

I would say that this theory is one that relates to Fractals.

Because they appear similar at all levels of magnification, fractals are often considered to be infinitely complex (in informal terms)...Approximate fractals are easily found in nature. These objects display self-similar structure over an extended, but finite, scale range. Examples include clouds, snow flakes, crystals, mountain ranges, lightning, river networks, cauliflower or broccoli, and systems of blood vessels and pulmonary vessels.

From the Wikipedia Article on Fractals

If you really want to pursue this idea with a scientific basis, I'd suggest studying Branes or M-theory. This contains elements of your idea, but has a much better probability of being based on something true. Instead of being a small piece of a mind-boggling large structure, you substitute size for dimension.

There are numerous strange and magical coincidences in the universe, 1 being the atom universe you described.

Also, however - 71% of Earth is covered in liquid of one form or the other, which is very much like much of the life on the planet, as after all, All Human Bodies are pumping with blood, which is also a liquid.

You could also compare the way in which blood congeals to the way that Magma cools, even if the actual physical laws are different.

Okay, maybe i am just getting carried away here - after all, once when i was in nursery school i compared the way human white blood cells moved around the body to maintenence workers, and the idea of a cyclic reality stuck with me ever since.

hahaha! My imagination also pictured the universe, not as a atom, but as one quark or one of the other smaller building blocks! Some years ago when I started chemistry at school!
I'm glad I was not the only one

our solar system has a resemblance to an atom but the distances are far too short compared to the relative distances inside an atom. in my own opinion however the universe is ENDLESS and same formations repeat from dimension to dimension

Hydrogen has one proton, one electron. The building block of the universe. Hydrogen plus Oxygen = water.

Oxygen causes rust, or generates oxidization.
Hydrogen cause water, or generates water.

Earth, with it's moon, is unique in that is has only one, and the only moon
in the universe that we know of that is not named by science.

The Earth and the single moon, make up the hydrogen atom, therefore earth is mostly water and oxygen.

Humans, are mostly water and oxygen, and therefore made up from the element of earth.

If we don't drink water, or take in elements through food, we dry up and return back to dust.

It's what holds us together, that I find fascinating. Electricity, gravity, whatever you want to call it, there is intelligence in it. The more I understand it, the deeper the rabbit hole goes.

I would go deeper to suggest that thought is creating matter by sending out electromagnetic pulses which cause protons and electrons to "come together" to form molecules, and therefore we can manifest objects, situations if we actually believed we could.

Jesus said, "with faith, anything is possible". I would suggest, faith is simply believing, and therefore we are only limited by what we believe we can do.

Now, how important is our thoughts to us? I would suggest, very important.

Everything is a fractal of itsself....

I'm getting lonely just thinking about it.

I would like to think that everything is Quantum, and interconnected, and how we interact affect not only our world, but the universe (or body) that we are part of. If the earth is sick, the universe is sick, if the earth is health, the universe is healthy.

Is earth the point of birth, like the egg in a woman? Are we going to be injected by cosmic sperm. Could it really be that biological??

The universe is a giant boob. Or, to express in terms as another suggested, it is a boob of infinite dimension. I'll explain.

Our galaxy is referred to as The Milky Way Galaxy. Two root words are found in the word "galaxy". Those words are "gal" and "lax". "Gal" refers to a girl or young woman. "Lax" refers to relaxed limbs, such as the limbs which spiral around the center of many observable galaxies.

The word "galactic" provides the real clue, though. In addition to having the root word "gal", it also contains the root word "lactic". "Lactic" clearly is a reference to milk. Put the two together and you get "young woman's milk". The only logical conclusion that can therefore be made is that the known universe is a boob. Albeit of unknown size or dimension. There may be another parallel universe that exists alongside our own universe. One that evens the picture out. However, we have yet to discover or directly observe this other universe. As they say, proof is in the pudding.

Anyway, if indeed the universe is a boob of unknown dimension, it then should be obvious why the Big Bang theory should be taken seriously.

This came to mind...


Great thread

Question everything. And keep an open mind

There are a lot of wrong ideas our teachers pass on without even thinking about it.

Many of the theories from the pasted are outdated and wrong. Don't get me wrong because they were way too advanced considering the technical conditions they have.

Now, I usually say when I work, I'm a Developmental Genetics scientist, we should revise many concepts we learned from books that we take as absolute truth. Science should not be a dogma.

The proposal that an atom could be a good Universe representation is something people can assume when they learn what an atom is (that people say it is). A nucleus surrounded by electrons. let's forget the other sub-atomic particles).

It has been "proved/shown" an electron can be on to different places at the same time. I'm sorry but I cannot find the scientific article I read to site it properly.

If that's really true that could explain, or at least suggest, the possible existence of parallel universes.

If nobody can really prove there was a Big Bang they cannot exclude that possibility.

You see, modern science is just starting. I believe science just got born. Because I'm Portuguese I am sorry because we had a huge contribute for the dark age of science because of religion (let's not discuss it here).

Yes, if we could understand what an atom is we could at least have a glimpse of how universe(s) may work.

This is what I call serendipity at its best... :-)
In this past week I've been giving some thought to the idea that, since "above is as below" - and I have no serious reason to doubt it is - it may not be entirely coincidental that the splitting of an atom bears such an uncanny resemblance to the surmised "Big bang"...

Spheres are just the easiest form for matter to shape into.

Has anyone considered that the universe might just be a mouse

Here's the link . Not looked around the rest of the site yet..

That image on the left is a mouse brain cell (neuron) - and the one on the right is supposed to be the universe - If I look real hard I can just make out my house!
