Are atoms actually under evolved animal species?
When you look at an atom, you see a lifeless wisp of space and time floating around in bunches of molecules. Could the truth go far deeper; that at one point, the atom and all it entails, was actually a race of mini people who refused to follow the big bangs dictee of development?
Everything else started evolving in the direction of personal growth and finesse since the Big bang, but the atom remained the same. Atoms don’t create matter, they are so insignificant they marinate everything and little thought is given to them.
