Greeks believed that there is no smaller than matter. But we can break that constitutes matter: Atoms.

Atoms are composed of a nucleus around which electrons run. These electrons can run along atom’s nucleus with an electrical phenomenon. Electricity was born from this. We make the electrons of the atoms moving to create electricity.

But we can also break the atoms’ nucleus. It creates a lot of energy. We then see quarks that destroy each other in waves.

So the wave is the smallest thing. The waves cannot be viewed and pass through us. Waves become particles. It is not known how exactly. We now know that they organize matter with another universe.

My Notes

Learn about the matter’s waves.
