Originally intended to show that at our base we are more gap than matter, somehow a gorgeous bloodwood bullet and lincoln silhouette entered the mix, and I found myself with a component for a huge, hand-cranked, fake wooden electron microscope. You see:
THE UNIVERSE IS MOSTLY EMPTY. Matter is mostly nothing. What we touch when we reach out to knock wood, is just the electron whizzing around billions of times per nonosecond. A sentry that makes the borders of its vast wilderness seem solid to us slower creatures. Like a fence makes property. But not everything is as slow as we are. To some creatures, the arc of the electron is as slow as a planet?s orbit. The trouble isn't finding the billionth of a nonosecond gap in which to fit, but traveling all that distance from the nucleus of the atom to its electron.video of Adam's Periphery in action.
