an ant cannot see a human that it is crawling on as.it sees on a single plane,i wonder,sometimes,if there are beings that we want comprehend. some see your atoms as neurons,that the universe is like a giant brain. i don't know the answer,but its fun thinking about it
That's a rather distressing concept. That after all out trials, tribulations, achievements, and failures, boils down to us being nothing more that a mere sub-atomic bacterium, in the bowels of some immensely large entity. I hope I cause it some terribly painful gas problems.
An atom is really very different from our solar system. The electrons orbit in multiple directions and are confined to fixed quantum shells, with several electrons per shell. The nucleus is not a nuclear explosion, and the electrons do not come in widely varying sizes like the planets. There are dozens of other differences, too. Overall, an atom looks nothing at all like a solar system.
I'm popping in way late, sorry. Just saw this question. :-) It's a fun thought, isn't it? It's something people have speculated about in similar ways for millennia. Rghurst has a point, though, that real similarities between atom and solar system are few. . However, if you want a real brain-tickler with an actual identical-micro-to-macro repetition, you should check out fractals. Fractals are little mathematical equations that can be represented in graphic images (even 3D ones) that are incredibly beautiful! A specific pattern is created and is repeated identically, no matter far into it you look or how much bigger it gets -- micro, macro, mega-macro. -- and this kind of pattern repetition actually exists in Nature around us, in chaos theory, and in the cosmos! It's far FAR beyond my ability to explain it, so I'll just post a couple of links: . Here's one on the info "basics", but if you get lost (like me) just check out the "Introduction" and Mandelbrot Fractal description/pics: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fractal . There are many MANY other fractals, like the Julia set, "trees", and Nova set, etc. Back in the late 80's/early 90's the Spousal Unit used to leave the computer cranking for hours on end to produce just 1 gorgeous little image for me to hang on my wall ... Nowadays, you can download these free little APPS that flip them out instantly! . Here's a link with a bunch of fractal forms found in nature, and if you scroll way down there's a wild video that zooms wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy down into the Mandelbrot! (Far Out, man Lol!!) http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/wilderness-resources/blogs/14-amazing-fractals-found-in-nature . Fun stuff!
LOL what does microbiology have to do with that. and the answer to that depends on what your definition of life is. honestly just the mere complexity of the universe would fall under my category of a organism.
