So everything ISNT particle based??? I'm not like a scientist or anything but I love the subject and i've been doing a lot of research for my novel. So heres my quandry... Everything is made out of something. And that something is usually a particle. Gravity, space, and matter are all particles... ...but within that theres things that arent like... fire. I mean what is fire? Its not matter or particles right? Its a chemical reaction to particles around it but its not a physical thing. Neither is conscienceness or time. So in my attempt to picture the universe I first thought of conscienceness starting, then actual matter which was basically coming from energy... everything is energy yet energy is another thing that isnt particle based right? Energy is the govern of all things but it is something that doesn't physically exist. Is that the same as something like thought, time, or fire? What is light made out of? Does light make energy or does energy make light? So what else isnt made from a particle?
