What happens to the atoms inside a Gaussian Wave Packet?

Can more than one Gaussian Wave Packet Exist in the same place?

Thank you,

Neither of these questions make any sense, because a Gaussian wave packet is a mathematical concept (it's a sum of various solutions to a particular differential equation). This is like asking what happens to the atoms inside a prime number, or whether two logarithms can exist in the same place.What happens to the atoms inside a Gaussian Wave Packet?
