a: The nucleus of an atom ~
b: a fly hovering in the middle of a football stadium

What: "The last thing that can be doubted is matter: hard solid world we live in. But is it? Is matter really what we think it is?! The answer is No. We live in - what Richard Dawkins calls - "the middle world". Matter is for the most part emptiness. There is way more emptiness in a seemingly solid matter than there is stuff. If we were small enough, we would see that the nucleus of an atom is like a fly hovering in the middle of a football stadium, the outer walls of the stadium being the electrons encircling the nucleus."
