atoms are indivisible. its in the name. defund cern
@jk i have a roll of developed film somewhere that i must scan that has a picture of me in switzerland flipping off cern
@jk I was trying to come up with a good response, which explains it and shows you're wrong. But I can't. Your reasoning is solid. Physics is done, and we can now all go home.
for nucleons there is a different notion of indivisibility due to quark colour confinement.
the relationship between electrons and photons is different again in a more transitive way. electrons are the termini of photons and weirdly kinda vice versa.
further all massive particles enjoy a local vectorial attractive interaction and a non-local 'Machian' inertia.
@loke @jk the most general thing i'd observe pedagogically is that the concept of 'inside' and 'outside' gets really nontrivial and weird and then fundamentally breaks down as you decrease [bulk] length scale ~ increasing interaction energy scale.
there is all kind of non-orientability or orientation rotating hyperbolic transformations and some things live in klein bottle like things.
if you look at cosmology in momentum twistor space you get antipodal correspondence at +/- spatial infinities
