“Yelizaveta, when things get very small they get truly crazy (…) A hydrogen atom has a single electron flitting about like a moth in an empty cathedral (…) Every atom is a cathedral (…) There is a straight ladder from the atom to the grain of sand, and the only real mystery in physics is the missing rung. Below it, particle physics; above it, classical physics; but in between, metaphysics!”
– Tom Stoppard, Hapgood.
