Okay, I think everyone here knows what the principle states, so I am not even going over that. Is a proton not a fermion with is +1/2 spin? It has an half integral, hence it must be. However, how is this possible for a proton to be fermion when elements like gold have a lot of protons in the nucleus. These protons are pushed together by the atomic force, why don't they disappear because they have asymmetrical wave functions, hence they should cancel out?
