Hey man, for all we know....we're microscopic sitting on a cell or an atom

I’m so stoned this actually makes sense

Not really. Atoms are working due to the balance of weak (radioactive decay) and strong interactions (why the are actually able to exist). Especially the former is only applied to extremely small distances, but the second is also appearing on fm distances.

No amount of scaling up would replicate weak and strong interactions that are affecting atoms. Thus, we can't be atoms just as there can't be life inside an atom. Purely because with smaller scale changes the balance of forces and the things get extremely volatile.

We can just have different interactions at scale. boom physics solved.

This is why quantum physics is its own field. Interactions ARE different at scale.

Compared to the universe we technically are microscopic. Our bodies are a living, thriving mass of bacteria, and cells that are all living. So a universe of microscopic beings make us up. To the vast expanse of the universe, and space...our earth is just a cell. For all we know everything we know, and experience could just be inside another, much larger being.

I really hope that being doesn't hear about COVID and start slathering themselves in hand sanitizer.

Well there is the milky way....or maybe thats something else...

I would be scared shitless if some giant being just suddenly stepped on Earth or had some giant scraper and sent us to be viewers under a microscope out of nowhere one day. You just unleashed a new fear of mine, the fact that we could be microscopic to something bigger than us

Well rest assured cuz if we are microscopic to something, that something stepping on us wont do jack shit. If you spit on the ground and stomp on it, do you think the bacteria are getting crushed to death by your shoes?

No, but if I spit on an egg and then stomp on it...

Well, allow me to introduce you to the Lovecraftian horror genre!

Yea this is a theory I’ve thought about as well. Maybe we’re just a tiny piece of something so much bigger we aren’t able to put the picture together. Interesting!

The day I look through a microscope and see a little atom in its kitchen slicing onions and peppers for a hamburger steak they’re about to cook up, I’ll jump on that bandwagon

This is definitely a simulation though, and none of you are real.
