    Well, I've had this question since forever, what happens if we took an atom, put it into a portal and put in a time travel machine (if time traveling became possible) and sent it into a space and time where already an atom was existing? To explain this further, we have Atom A and Atom B, Time A and Time B same as Space A and space B.. And so we sent Atom A with a time machine into a point in time where both existed at the exact time and space.. What would happen?
    I think if you put it in an equation for the time and space for Atom A and B it would look like this.



    The internet was not much of a great help and I did not find something helpful so I've put my own hypothesis, 3 actually; 1 is that the atoms explode with such great force that the nucleus would break down, setting the neutrons, protons and electrons free. The second is that both atoms would annihilate each other or the third one which is the most boring is that they would just push away each other because of their charge. Anything regarding this should help

    What you're asking is if the universe didn't didn't behave like it behaves, how would it behave. It's a meaningless question.


    Its the way nature is!
    If you dont like it, go somewhere else....
    To another universe, where the rules are simpler

    You just killed my hope in science. lol

    I'm asking a theoretical question with IF, "if" may not be possible, but for each cause there's an effect, if our cause is putting two objects into the same position on the same time, what would be the effect?

    So you're saying:

    'Lets suppose something that cannot happen in the universe happens, and then make up things about the thing which can't happen pretending that it can happen.'

    Did I get that right?

    Physicists and mathematicians ask those kinds of questions constantly, it's how Einstein created general relativity.

    No, they most certainly do not.
    That is not how Einstein formulated Relativity, at all. He did not just make things up. He started with observation. He asked questions about observation. He then formulated a hypothesis to explain the observations.
    He then applied other observations against it to test it.
    HE then submitted his work and since so doing- it's been repeatedly tested and will not stop being tested.

    Yes, technically.. Making a hypothesis on what would've formed as a re-action based on what we know..

    EDIT: You really can't say it's not going to happen, many horrible things happened before lol

    Yes, but before all of that, he asked himself "What if I could create a theory to explain so-in-so?"
    Doctoral professionals ask themselves the same sort of questions. "What if I could explain so-in-so?" "Why does this happen and not something else?" It is the most basic of all questions one must ask himself.
