We are just atoms moving around

Literally. Science class was right. Atoms are 99% empty space. And what are we? Atoms. What is the space between us? Empty. Don’t you guys get it? That’s the cosmic joke. Science was right. We weren’t alone. We’re not even God. We are literally atoms.

    It's just concepts anon
    In reality .0000000000000005 nanometers is "space" just as much as 100 billion light-years is "space'

    They're both just theoretical concepts that have no meaning outside human made mathematical topologies

    Ehh... technically, sure. First of all, the images of atoms presented in school aren't really accurate and as far as I can tell they're not meant to be, and this is partly because any still image of an atom is only showing what that atom looks like in that specific point in time, and atoms aren't static objects. The particles in atoms move around and essentially create an orbital cloud and path these particles move within this cloud can be modeled/predicted to a degree and they have interesting shapes.

    What we really are is a field of excited energy held together by electromagnetism (more energy), but so is literally everything else in the universe.

      Even with all of this in mind its still a gross oversimplifcation to call us "mostly just empty space" because, again, so is everything else in the universe, the way we're physically structured isn't especially unique or abnormal in this universe, but even knowing this we still don't understand enough about the brain, or how its structured to be able to determine where/how consciousness comes from so even if we're mostly empty space we still can't determine what about the empty space, or its arrangement produces "you" or "me" even with large hadron colliders we can't figure out why a specific arrangement of atoms, like a brain, produces/receives consciousness, and we still don't know why a certain configuration of atoms results in a living thing while another configuration produces something that isn't living, so there's still definitely some sort of currently unexplainable magic woo woo stuff going on that produces living beings.

      tl;dr matter, as far as we can tell, fails to explain what the mind/consciousness (you) or (me) actually is, so for now we're kind of just chalking it up to "spooky quantum stuff", "the soul", or mysterious "higher/lower dimensional energetic field interactions" until we can disprove any of those theories.

      Also, the experiments at CERN and into quantum mechanics are basically proving to us that our current models of reality, energy, mass, force, and physics are essentially all wrong, but we keep them because they're still useful for making things and predicting some causal phenomena at the atomic scale and above.

    We aren't even atoms. Not only is 99% of your body empty space, but 99% of your mass isn't even made up of particles, but the energy that binds quarks into neutrons and protons. Those quarks themselves are just highly concentrated energy. That is all we are

    We are living beings, which means we are relational beings, meaning what we experience is "betweeness," connections to our history, families, communities, passions, environment, and our potentiality.

    This "betweeness" cannot be reduced to atoms, as it is an emergent phenomenon - and if you studied the post-Newton trajectory of science you would know that this trajectory has been towards interpreting natural phenomenon as interdependent dynamic systems. Science has progressed beyond the mechanistic billiard-ball universe of materialism, why haven't you?

    The question is of course "how to progress beyond mechanistic materialism while taking into account the robust accounts of the sciences?" What is required is not the abandonment of naturalism, but its literal evolution: before Darwin the universe was largely considered to be unchanging, and the metaphysical emphasis was on the unchanging. To advance beyond materialism requires restarting with change and interconnectedness as the fundamental premise, which positions us within process-relational metaphysics.

    Instead of the "law" of identity x=x, the unchanging substance, we take the fundamental theorem of calculus as our metaphysical principle. The metaphysical generalization of the dynamic between integration and differentiation is at the heart of every creative process, including life (selection and mutation) and temporal advance (every moment is the death of untold possibilities with the arrival of a concrete actuality, which is the rebirth of new possibilities from this actuality that previously couldn't be anticipated.) This is the romantic pulse of the universe itself, which is necessarily interpreted as a romance because its highest elevation is found in love in all its forms.

    True. Yet, it doesn't make the experience we call life any more or less valuable if we were anything more than that. Everything just is.

    I think there's more to it than that. Like the particles move like waves or something, and then atoms are made of smaller components, which also might be made of smaller components, which also might be made of smaller components...

    Consciousness and love and its relationship to matter have not been given a proper theory, yet they are intertwined.
