If the world is composed, at least partially of, particles

    Particles
    If the world is composed, at least partially of, particles, what makes them so similar? Like the buttons produced from the same mould. Electrons are all the same? Do they change a little bit in shape or structure?

    The differences between subatomic particles are known as its quantum numbers... Such as flavors, and colors...

    If you assume, like deBroglie did, that the electron is a real particle, this particle has an internal oscillation which causes the wave around it, you will not find an experiment, which contradicts this assumption.

    Take the above quote from another forum together with the reply from quantum

    The differences between subatomic particles are known as its quantum numbers... Such as flavors, and colors...

    and look for the simplest arrangement that satisfies both assumptions. Current thinking uses four forces and mass, my own proposal is for a single force and a force carrier.
    Because the numbers are the same for both arrangements, both are plausable; as would be any other proposal that matches both statements. The great problem lies in devising an experiment that proves one particular proposal to be correct.
    My proposal does somethings that the four force model cannot do in that it offers a solution to the Galaxy gravity problem and shows a link between the wave structure of particles and larger bodies. However it is only right to point out that they have not received favourable comments from forum members so its back to the drawing board to try and find a better way of presenting my case.
    Meanwhile the answer to your question is that there is no confirmed answer.

    What i am trying to say is that the particles were produced as if by some standard production process to make them so similar. Is nature capable of such process?

    The structure or shape of a particle is the basic mechanism of particles, not what they contain, like a cup, what a cup contain has nothing to do with the shape of the cup, even though what a cup contain often appear along with the cup.
