I have this weird theory that some people are drawn to each other because their atoms were near each other when the universe was created and over time the same atoms keep coming back together
DID YOU JUST SCIENTIFICALLY EXPLAIN SOUL MATES?!
Then we would also be drawn to tables and chairs and do realize how many atoms there are and how few of the ones that were originally together are even in the same galaxy?
I dunno—probably most of the material that was proximal between 60 and 600 seconds after the big bang is still proximal today on a galactic scale, as far as I remember. There’s been some shuffling at, say, the star cluster level…
Astronomy people: am I wrong?
Either way this isn’t scientific because human emotion isn’t experienced by individual atoms to the best of our scientific knowledge.
Sorry to be a buzzkill.
I think that it would also depend partly on what your cutoff point is for “when the universe was created”. And “near”. And also “atom”.
According to our current understanding, at the creation of the universe, all matter/energy was existent in a single point, so everything was near everything else.
Nucleosynthesis, on the other hand, didn’t occur until about 3 minutes later, after some very rapid expansion. Before this, leptons, hadrons, and quarks had been progressively precipitating out of the big matter/energy soup of the initial universe, but this is when the first instances of what we call atoms (a proton nucleus and an electron shell) formed. This occurred after the Inflationary Epoch, though, when the universe expanded from around the size of a grapefruit to something much more on the scale of (although still more compact than) the universe we know today.
All of those atoms were hydrogen and helium, however. Heavier atoms—such as what we’re mostly made of, carbon—didn’t occur until much, much, much later, after gravitational collapse began the fusion process in the nearly (but not quite!) smooth gas clouds of the Dark Age. It’s possible that atoms which fused into new elements might still “count” as those original atoms, but that raises the question of what’s being tracked—the protons? The quarks?
i’m so upset
I just realized that the reason ghosts say Boo! is because it’s a latin verb
they’re literally saying ‘I alarm/I am alarming/I do alarm!!
if it comes from the latin word, they’re actually saying “I’M YELLING!” which is even cuter
do they speak latin because it’s a dead language
