Solitary confinement.


Thomas Silverstein, a triple murderer who spent decades in solitary confinement in federal prison, died at a Colorado hospital this month, officials said Wednesday.
Silverstein died May 11, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons. He was 67.
He had lived in solitary confinement since killing a prison guard in 1983, a span of more than 35 years. Much of that time he was subject to an unusual no-contact order in which he had little interaction with other people.
Silverstein is believed to have served the longest term in solitary confinement in the federal penitentiary system.

That isn't necessarily an answer relating to anything to this. This is a problem in both Physics and Quantum Meta-Physics and has nothing to do with solitary confinement as that's a psychological problem. As an answer to his question however: Matter needs space to be matter; Space as in a physical ground made by atoms for other atoms to interact, If there was never one of these in the first place then they would never interact in the first place therefor making this an logical fallacy but atoms have been shown to transcend space itself through quantum Spinning and Quantum Super-positioning so an atom never really abides to our conceived laws of physics and logic making this a paradox instead of a logical fallacy.

An electron can move and interact, but there's no space inside the electron. It's a fundamental particle that actually has no size whatsoever!

an electron has mass and mass takes up space therefore an electron takes up space. correct?

dimensions are properties of objects because objects do not have any defined physical structure outside dimensions. Dimensions are how objects are perceived, which is what the objects structure is. How do dimensions cause objects to be a type of dimension, does it require movement? If so, what is the inherent property that causes movement cause the dimensions to warp the space one way or the other; nothing causes itself to move. Are dimensions a property of something or inherently different then that it surrounds and effects? How can can an something surround everything yet can be moved through, its almost paradoxical.

Not sure but something in my head says neutron...They can move and interact but there is no space in-between the protons and neutrons for anything other to go between them not sure if Im right though.

Incorrect.
Electrons are examples of "point particles." Such particles are considered to be like geometric points - they occupy no space because their volume is zero. Google it.

It is called “motion mass” because the electron has a mass ONLY in motion. There is no electron that stands still. Once it changes (decreases) its speed, it becomes something else, mainly it transforms into some form of energy.

You have the right idea about electrons but they do essentially have a volume but like a photon occupy 0^0 energy and has confused the logic of classical physics and energy physics to an extent because the value of 0 to the power of 0 is 1-0. An electron has a negative volume integer of ~10−30 m^3 so while containing volume be it negative, do hold a constant of energy.
