Quarks
So I've searched and searched not one book seems to be able to tell me what these things are made of! Or exactly why they can't be separated from larger masses. Of course I could just be looking in the wrong places. So far I've gone through Particle Physics 101, Back to Basics: Atomic Theories, and The All Mighty Atom.

RE: Quarks
There might be some physics professor or something like that out there who can explain that.

I know several science channels on youtube, you could ask there?

It's a cute book but it explains quite a lot about quantum mechanics in everyday language.

Will I be able to get it on iBooks?

I have no idea. I'm sure Amazon has it and I'm pretty sure there is a torrent somewhere online.

As to what quarks are "made of".. that's not a question we have a coherent answer to right now as I understand it. Quarks are currently considered "fundamental" and indivisible. They may be made of something smaller such as strings but we don't have a way of observing a decomposed quark at this time.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

How long does it take for a quark to decompose and what does quantum mechanics have to say about it?

You know what is more interesting is that when we smash these atoms together
we get to see more elements that only appear in a fraction of a second,
thats what they do in CERN, and thats where they found the higgs boson,
anyway is so cool that there is so much more we yet have to understand about our cosmos is literally like Drooling it is more interesting more mysterious and exciting than any religious text book ever written by human´s poor attempt to explain our existence.


Anyway I think the string theory is a good shout but nothing confirmed
is all a beautiful equation, hard to replicate and test
but the cosmic background wave supports the idea and even supports the idea that our universe is just one of many.
