    I only have a high school education and not too much knowledge on space or atoms.... From what I understand, atoms have neutrons, electrons, protons, etc.... But what is the space between these parts? Is it nothing? I think its space, like our space ( the big black thing that everything we know of is in). If this is true than is it possible that our space is only HUGE in comparison to us? Maybe everthing we know is part of a complex "building block" for something much greater.... If this theory is wrong please let me know, or if you think its a good theory... you can still let me know

    Crandall, I'm not sure why, but anyone I have ever discussed this thought with seems to have had it also. It seems to stem, initially, though not necessarily consciously, from the idea that the atom is like a minature solar system.
    The trouble with analogies is when you start to think they are the same as reality. I wouldn't dwell on it too long.

    Welcome to the forum, by the way.

    Crandall; Anytime you take the relevance of mankind and somehow reduce that relevance, you will hit a stone wall, even in an idea...

    Your idea, has been discussed in Science classes, probably longer than most will agree. My first such discussion was in the 1950's, moderated by a professor who discussed it in a 1930 classroom. On forums its shot down quickly, for two primary reasons; It could never be proved, one way or another and it defies logic as to all that is scientifically acceptable.

    IMO; The idea of our Universe being part of some more complex *Thing*, is more probable than a single entity, floating around aimlessly in what should be an endless (infinity) space. The reverse then, size and complexity of small is just as probable. I use the speck of dust, most often, which we know now is somewhat complex. Just as we see the trillions of dust particles floating around in a ray of sunlight, we could be being observed by another life, wondering the same thing. To the provability; In the time that being, observing us or us to that speck of dust, literally millions of generations of us or to those in that speck to us, will have passed, in a second.

    If you have some ideas, I would like to hear them. The moderators may move the thread, but it is of interest to many folks who can think outside the accepted boxes...

    Astrophysicists talk about dark matter and antimatter when they evoke the non-baryonic matter it seems.
