    you know how all over your body
    is tiny microscopic sized atoms?
    you know how they are round?
    well they are so small
    that the electrons around them
    if they were the size of a basketball
    are 20 miles around it
    so what if each cell was like a solar system
    and each electron thing
    is a planet
    all over our bodies:
    making up this solar system
    and what if we are just part of
    an electron:
    to a nucleus:
    on a cell
    in a bigger beings body

    if this is true, then each inner a sun to other planets of electrons
    then are we just an electron. And if splitting atoms is so powerful, maybe its as powerful as splitting our son?

    this is just a short preview of what I have written
    my Name is Chris Klein, I am a 17 year old in Washington
    I would also like to know what you think of this theory
    and if I have any errors in my writing
    it would be appreciated if you would be willing to correct my mistakes

    There are a number of problems with this idea, not the least of which is that the idea that electrons are little spheres that orbit the nucleus of the atom like planet's orbit the sun has been abandoned for the modern Quantum Mechanics picture of electrons acting as "probabiltiy clouds" surrounding the nucleus. IOW, they are not localized the way that planets are.

    Even if we disregard that for the moment, there are still other problems. Here are just a few:

    1. Planets orbit around the Sun due to gravity. Electrons orbit around the nucleus due to electrostatic force. A major difference btween the two is that gravity is only an attractive force, while the electrostatic force is both attractive and repulsive. For the electrostatic force objects to be attractive, the objects involved would have to have opposite charges. Like charges repel each other.
    For instance, the nucleus has a postive charge and the Electrons negative. To equate this to a planet situation, the Sun would be postive and the Planets negative. But if the Earth is negative in order to orbit the Sun, then the Moon would have to be postive in order to orbit the Earth. Since like charges repel, the postive Moon would be repeled by the Positive Sun. But we know from observation that the Moon is attracted to the Sun and not repeled.

    2. Planets come in all sorts of types and sizes. Electrons are all indentical.

    3. Atoms join together to form molecules. For instance, 2 hydrogen atoms join with 1 oxygen atom in order to from a molecule of water. Every water molecule is just like any other water molecule. If we were a part of some bigger object formed of atoms, when we looked out into space we would see repeated patterns of star systems forming the equivalent of molecules, each pattern exactly like the others. We don't, we see a random assortment of systems.

    I am not sure where the author wants to go with this, but a question for Janus; If you reduce the universe to the size of an atom (or sub-atom)) or increase an atom to that size, would either be recognizable or comparable to what we now understand. Said another way, we in our universe could well be part of an ocean of water. I won't argue the point however, since the answers could never be known. IMO however, size is relative to the reality we live in...

    this has a spam feel to it - exactly the same post was posted under Astronomy, Biology, Chemisty, Earth Sciences and Physics
