Invisible things by Noëlle Maline

With the flicker of a bird .. I prefer distractions and being interrupted . These days , I am a luggage organizer , book filer and background diorama painter .. I look at the night sky and watch old films .. Collect shadows and uncertainties .. I make art with fragments and broken images .. Paper , things and sounds .

invisible quarks

things get even smaller..

i came across this information today as i was having my first cup of coffee..
sparking interest, discovery and imagination.

it's about what might possibly be the smallest thing
in the universe...

"..the enduring question of the smallest thing in the universe 
has evolved along with humanity. People once thought grains
of sand were the building blocks of what we see around us.
Then the atom was discovered, and it was thought indivisible, until
it was split to reveal protons, neutrons and electrons inside. 
These too, seemed like fundamental particles, before scientists
discovered that protons and neutrons are made of three 
quarks each."
...
side note - 
a Quark :
Quark no.1 - is a invisible sphere.
The thin shell is constructed of Hadrons.
This rounded sphere does not connect with the Quarks,
creating a liquid like element.
The Hardness factor for this Quark is... (H-12).

{a close up of an old stereoscopic photo i found at a
flea market in Austin..I found a few of them with
strange depth spheres in them. i think they were used for sight exercises.}
