JK I'm no better XD
Ah. I understand now.*ahem*
there are a bunch of fields at the basis of the universe, and a big enough "bump" in one of those fields is called a particle. as a result of being a "bump" in a field, each particle sometimes acts like a classical particle, and sometimes acts like a wave of where the particle *might* be. this is called wave/particle duality.
each particle also interacts with other fields besides it's own, usually the electric, strong, weak, and higgs fields (which each have their own "boson" particles). this results in each particle having a certain amount ef "charge" and "spin". spin is direcional, and similar to schrödinger's cat, can be in any direction until observed.
It pains me to admit that I finally, just now, realized you were calling this thread square, as in lame, due to its present lack of activity.This is a dynamic thread... I now it feels more like a quadratic!!!
