The atom's shadow is concentric circles, as anyone familiar with physical theory will gladly inform you.
The only reason they seem similar in these images is the poor resolution of the "atomic shadow" image.
I have several vinyl records which have a spirally recorded groove and so are a closer match to the galactic spiral than the second picture.
I would hardly build a philosophy of nature based upon the apparent match between vinyl records and galaxies.
The look-alike or sounds-alike attempts to infer physical theory are not scientific but are, in fact, magical thinking. Like drawing conclusions based upon astrological alignments/conjunctions or rhyming names.
