A.) Slamming particles together at high energy to see what they are made of and how matter is formed is like taking a clock and smashing it off the wall, then looking at all the broken pieces flying around in a hope to figure out how clock works, or so it would seem? B.) Beside that, is anyone seriously hoping to find a real "atom" as in "the smallest indivisible particles" from which everything is composed? Isn't that just like looking for the edge of the universe? Why would universe be infinitely large, but not infinitely divisible? Infinity that goes only one way? Is that logically possible?
