Is there a bridge between science and religion that we can find by studying the particles in a different way than what science do today? Could the particles once in a far past have been programmed to perform the job to form matter? Now, the big qustion is; is there anyone out there who organize the particles? - Did some superintelligent being, once far back in time program the particles to spin the way they do in all the atomic structures of the elements? - Or could they have learned to dance this magnificent dance of matter all by themselves?

Atom physics is really the entrance to a new direction of development on Earth. It's just that the physicists have not discovered the greatness of their own discoveries. Their work, however, has formed the basis of my work, without being a physicist. It is good enough for me that I know physics and chemistry at the level of secondary school.

Imagine that you are an electron in an iron atom! According atom physics you are tiny and spinning at full speed around the nucleus of the atom. The core also consists of particles, like you, but they behave differently. Cling to that thought, and find out what kind of tasks you need to perform. You collaborate with the other electrons to be just that the atom, with just that number of electrons. (26 electrons in 4 shells.)

2 in the outermost shell,

14 in the next outermost shell,

8 in the second inner shell,

2 in the innermost shell

I use here the same terminology used in chemistry and physics. Electrons spinning around the same distance from the nucleus, are in the same "shell", see figure.

Imagine that you are one of 26 people to make a lineup similar to electrons in the iron atom, around a center. Then you must imagine it to be 4 shells or rings, but only two of you will be in the outermost ring. The two that are in the outermost ring will not be able to see each other, they just need to know that the other is on the opposite side.

In the ring within there need to be 14 people, so you can hold hands and form a nice ring together.
Then there must be 8 in the ring inside, so those who are there can stretch out your arms and form ring, so that the distance is equal between all who stand in it.

Now there are two people who have not been placed in iron atomstrukturens electron shells image. They should be in the innermost "ring". ie, they will stand in the same place relative to the center as the two that are in the outermost ring. (See figure). This means that four people will be in series in each side of the core.

Now, you have placed yourselves at your "shell" or circle. If you could fly, can you imagine that each of you will spin in your own orbits around the nucleus. Everybody that is in the same shell, must have the same distance from the core and you must have the same distance to the other people who are in the same shell.

The atomic nucleus consist of equal numbers of positively charged particles as electrons in the shells all-together. They are called protons. At the core there are also the same number of non-charged particles, neutrons.

If you and the group of people who make atomic shells in iron also should have brought in people in roles as protons and neutrons, you would have to be 52 more people. If you all should symbolize their tasks, half of them could wear red clothes and half of them (neutrons) could wear green clothes. - And you whose mission is to stand in the rings around and be electrons could take in blue clothing.

How would you be able to manage this task? You need thus to be 78 people to form the particle structure of an iron atom. Would you need a leader who had knowledge so that he or she could put all the people in the right place? If only one should be the leader, he would need knowledge about how all the other would place themselves. Then all the others just would have to execute "orders" and quietly go to their places... would it work?

Not so with electrons! They know exactly what to do, or else matter would not exist! Particles can perform enormously demanding and complex tasks!... Tasks that must be considered conscious.

However, if all had knowledge of iron atom structure and all should work together to form this model, what was needed for you to do it quickly and smoothly? You would have to cooperate. You would have to communicate with each other, not necessarily with words, but with nods and glances and mutual understanding. You would have to be flexible and not cling to a place you had decided for yourself. You would have to find your equal place in the structure and allow others to find their. You would need confidence that all the others would know what to do and like yourself, work together to create exactly the structure. If one did not come to this task in time, there would not be a complete structure and you would not be the model of an iron atom... You would all need to be precise. You would all have to be patient so that everyone found their place.

Would any of you who participate in this joyful experiment ever think of particles as insignificant? It is time to see particles in a completely new way!
Below is a picture of an iron atom, a good attempt to draw a true picture of the 3Dspin. Can you imagine how it would be to fly around as a electron in it?
