Nature of the Atoms
Published: March 7, 2009

According to The Theory of Atomism, the atoms of which all of the matter in the universe is made, have a basic nature that they must act in accordance with and cannot act in contradiction to. It’s the basic nature of atoms to fall through the void of the universe, gravitating and aggregating themselves under certain conditions into thoms. Thoms are the smallest aggregate of atoms of an element that have the chemical properties of that element. They make up the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the houses we live in. All of the observable things of the universe have been formed by them and are being formed.

This means that there is an eternal pattern of behavior of atoms that leads to the formation of thoms. This shows that our Atomic universe behaves in a somewhat predictable way. To gain a profound understanding of how it works, scientists must discover the patterns of behavior of both the atoms and the thoms. This can only be done through a reductionist’s approach to the study of these particles. This approach involves reducing them to the interactions of their parts. The reductionist’s approach, or reductionism, provides a means for understanding the basic nature of atoms and thoms and all emergent things.

Never forget that atoms are the ultimate building blocks of all matter and that gravity is a fundamental property of atoms. Without this property, thoms and no other aggregates of atoms could exist. Multitudinous atoms free-fall downwards along multitudinous courses through infinite time by the force of their own mass, gravitating, colliding, and aggregating in every possible way. By this process, they have experienced every variety of movement and have formed from eternity everything that can be formed by their combinations.
