a: Quark ~
b: a small twist or knot in spacetime


" The way I think about it is that a quark is like a small twist or knot in spacetime, and a subatomic particle is like a clump of these knots. When a particle and antiparticle meet (they contain opposite sign quarks), those twists cancel out, and the "untwisting" process releases the energy that was tied up in each twist."
