At what point does something become dangerous?
What if the ordered, protective shell of electrons guarding the sensitive preciousness of the nucleic material is only actually necessary when an Observer comes along to threaten its credibility?
Until that time, nature being what it is, we could say that balance is everything, that the sub-atomic can adopt whatever position it wants to but, even then, it must stay within the confines of quark-based reality. Could 'spin' be a topcoat of visible/invisible gloss on a colour we've yet to see? Because we can only hope to see it when the light is in the right place and that probably means it's got something to do with photons.
