The smallest unit of matter, that generates the matrix of reality.
The first documented concept of the atom dates back to India. Acharya Kanad was born in 600 BC in Prabhas Kshetra (near Dwaraka) in Gujarat and called his discovery the Anu. The word “Atom” is derived from the Greeks, (ἄτομος; atomos), meaning “uncuttable”, and was described by philosophers Leucippus and his pupil Democritus (c. 460 – c. 370 BC).
The Atom was first discovered in 1800 when chemist John Dalton used the concept to explain why elements always react in ratios of whole numbers (the law of multiple proportions). It wasn’t until the beginning of the 1900’s that the discovery of the electron opened the door to the atom we know today.
Atoms have a nucleus formed of Protons that are always equal in number to the outer electrons. This gives each atom its atomic number and places it on the periodic table. The second type of particle found in the nucleus is the neutron, that wasn’t until 1932 as it does not emit any charge.
Each atomic neucleus contains the majorit of the atoms mass. Around this the electorn cloud is found. As this exstend far beyond the atomic nuclus, the overall atom is considered to be made of 99.99% empty space.
