i remeber hearing of the multiverse theory a long time ago, and then recently I came upon a site with a strange idea-- that suns are atoms. I forget the site, but it said bascially this:
What if our sun was an atom? An atom is a small object with electrons circling it, and our sun is a large object with planets circling it. But what if there's a connection? What if our sun was just an atom in a strand of water, or a shirt, or living being.

Molecules are mostly empty space, so it could be true. And also, if this is true, then space is infinite. Objects would just be getting bigger and bigger, truly infinite sapce.

Just wondering if anyone else had seen this before.

I've always pondered that myself... It's not an uncommon idea, I would think. It was even brought up in the classic Aminal House.


But I subscribe to the idea that the universe itself is just an atom... With suns and solar systems being smaller than quarks. Who knows? It's just fun to think about sometimes!

Another idea is that our universe is a foundamental particle in other universe.

Stars are not the same as atoms, but on a larger scale. There are a few major differences between stars and atoms:


  • The core of an atom is positively charged and the electron are negatively charged and these charges cancel eachother out. Planets are not charged.
  • All electrons weigh the same and have the same mass/charge ratio. The planets have different masses.
  • In atoms, the electrons can only exist in certain discrete orbits. This is a consequence of quantum mechanics. Planets can have every imaginable orbit (although some may be unstable).
  • Molecules are formed by atoms sharing electrons. The distances between stars is too large for them to share planets.
  • The mass of a star changes slowly, while the mass of an atom always stays the same.


The universe as a quark or electron theory is a bit more plausible. I can't think of a way to test it, though.

You forgot to mention that electrons can absorb and emit photons.
Also I think in quantum mechanics electrons moved within Borh's orbitals not orbits.

I think that's an excellent analysis, and I also think that similarities between atoms and astronomical systems are rather superficial.

And... While electrons can emit photons, planets and star can emit and absorb gravitons.
