How many  carbon atoms are required to make two particles of carbon distinguishable...?

Does this mean you are now ready to listen ?


The straightforward answer is 2.

It might be worth looking up Bose Einstein condensate,  to get an idea of atoms which can all merge into a single quantum entity and lose any distinct individual identity.   

Also reminded of the famous quote (I think John Wheeler?   Or Feynman?) in which it was said that there is really only one electron in the universe.   It just happens to be everywhere we measure an electron.   Probably Wheeler, sounds like something he'd say.

We feel like the NFL would feel if someone who'd never played American football insisted that the problem with the game is that the ball isn't round. It's compounded by the frustration that whenever they try to explain the game, the amateur just keeps repeating his claim and doubling down in more bizarre and insistent ways.

Ahh yes, the game where half the time is spent in huddles discussing tactics, unlike the greatest game of all, Rugby League and the non stop action and thrills!!!!ūüėČhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozcMwlbLU1A
