The author attempts to explore the mysterious quantum world.

     Hydrogen contains only one proton and one electron, so, studying their
properties might give some insight into the basic structure of atoms and some of the
workings of the quantum world. 
     Since protons contain matter mostly in the form of quarks, then hydrogen atom also must contain the same type of matter, therefore, quarks must play a very active role in the functioning of hydrogen, and all other atoms as well.   
     The conversion of neutrons into protons also involves the interaction of quarks in this process, by the changing of one UP quark present into a Down quark forming a proton and an electron from the neutron in the process.  A summary of the  processes involved is essentially a transformation of the neutron into a hydrogen atom.          
      The transformation of an UP Quark into a DOWN Quark during the conversion of a neutron into a proton and an electron would require that the bits of matter present in the electron must come from the DOWN Quark. since it is the quark which is transformed into an UP Quark. 
     This consideration brings to mine the question of how the process of converting one quark into another actually happens.  How does an electron, with a small bit of matter and a negative charge become released from the confines of a quark.  Just what would be the mechanism involved in this transformation?
     Another question might be what could the  structure of quarks really be?  They are probably not like tiny tiny bits of wood, a true solid state.  Rather, it seems a possibility that they exist in an amorphous state, some sort of an intermediate between pure energy and solid matter. This possibility might indicate that the size and mass of quarks may be changeable, depending on the circumstances of their surroundings. Do they remain as separate, small units of matter, or could they
somehow combine into a single larger mass?
     Ifso, this possibility might be applied alsotolarger atoms containing a lsrger number ofquarks.  Instead of remaining as smaller, individual units, they might combine into larger and larger units as the size of atomic number increases.   
         Is it possible that quarks represent  the connecting entity between mass and energy?  Having an amorphous nature, with varying size would give them a unique place in the quantum world.  Rather than being passive particles in neutrons and protons, they would likely have a more active role, a driving force in the functions of atoms.
     We cannot compare the world we know with the world of quarks, and can only  speculate about how this strange world functions.
