The botanist claims that human life depends indirectly on the chlorophyll in the green leaf. The leaf depends on sunlight. But both depend upon the atom. No atoms, no physical matter, no physical universe!

It is hardly feasible to subject an atom to microscopic examination. But what if it was possible What if a new technique of observation was discovered A strange, revolutionary "seeing" without recourse to the photon.
