How Much Does it Matter?
It’s a rather tiny amount of ‘ordinary matter”‘ that actually consists of everything we’d normally associate with being “everything” there is in the universe. Point zero three percent to be exact. We know absolutely nothing about the ninety six percent of “something else” which dominates our universe yet leaves no trace.
Michio Kaku readily concedes that we don’t even have a full picture of the diminutive .03% speck of matter we can detect and examine. The knowledge we glean in the atomic world comes at a huge price and destroys the very type of matter we need to survive, the abundance of which is admitted to be in exceedingly short supply by the very people who want to go on annihilating as much of it as they can!!
