#30 Is matter formed of one element or of several elements ?
“Of one primitive element. The bodies which you regard as simple are not really elementary; they are transformations of the primitive matter.”
One primitive matter; which ends, through transformations, to all the different matter as we know. Things are made of molecules, which are combinations of atoms. Now when we split the atoms we know that it is made of 3 different elements: protons, neutrons, and electrons. Protons and neutrons are made of quarks and electrons are made of spinons and orbitons (source: https://www.psi.ch)
According to Superior Spirits here, there is ONE primitive element at the end; something that its combination will start to show evidence of different matters. Scientists say quarks are the tiniest element; if it is true, we have then the primitive element from which we create protons and neutrons; with the electrons we have the atoms and then molecules; matter we know, see, touch.
But can we be sure? Or course not, we surely lack of technology to split even tinier to finally find the primitive element from which matter is created regarding how this element combines itself.
