Welcome to the World of a Quantum Magician!
Up & Down, Strange & Charm, Truth & Beauty (or Top & Bottom)- these are the 6 quark pairs that make up all matter as we know it..! We are talking about the `particles’ which make up protons, neutrons and so on.. It’s actually more particle physics than quantum mechanics…but hey…!
The diagram shows a typical interaction.. of a quark being scattered by an electron, with the force carrier (X). That’s where the real science ends..
But of course the whole thing is on a membrane…and a `light’ penetrates this side from the other side, through a `light-hole’. That’s just my art.. It’s a bit of graphics I created.. including the fake beard on my face, Sun (lots of photos of bonfire merged), and a `planet’. Enjoy.
