In the Star Trek: Voyager episode ‘The Gift’, Kes and Tuvok meditate, and when Kes claims she can see beyond the "subatomic" level and even manipulate matter at that level, Tuvok clearly replies:
Kes... there isn't anything beyond subatomic level.
Is this a new kind of physics? Even now, in the 21st century, we know that there are a whole lot of things beyond subatomic level: protons, neutrons and even below them -- quarks.
What does "subatomic" mean?
