Let us apply the Method of Alternatives to the Atom
Atom has internal motion or no
Atom has transformation or not
Atom has gas or no
Atom has solid or no
Atom has liquid or no
Gas and/or solid and/or liquid mix in the atom?
The Method of Alternatives is to be retained as a corollary of The Theory of Inexhaustible Hypotheses q.v.
The Method of Alternatives is to be retained as the a way in which the motion and/or phenomena of any thing is ‘forced out’ as an empirical fact and/or theory and/or hypothesis and/or Principle and/or discovery
The rate of motion and/or phenomena ‘forced out’ have to be considered always against the background of and as subject to :
The Principle of Global Balance
The Principle of Adjacent Contiguous Reference Frames
The Principle of the Mass : Energy Percentage
This methodology as per 1,2,3 and 4 is to be applied to other phenomena as much as and as many times as be necessary and/or useful
