how can something be the "smallest" While siting at work and doing nothing as usual a thought came to me....how can there be space in between the "smallest particles" when and if we do find them? Dosnt space need to be occupied by something no matter how small or rudimentary? What will we find, What will we find....when we find, the smallest particle. Lets say that there cannot be space in between these particles and that these particles make a cohesive sheet through out the universe, I wonder what would happen if we could knock one of these particles out of alignment what would be "behind" or what would take its place seeing that space cannot be occupied by nothing (if thats the case I dunno that it is). well thats as far as I got untill my phone rang. Help me on this, I bombed physics in college, but hold a Love for the abstract thought.
