Metaphysics

It cannot be the case that a particle is completely and solely dependant on an infinite regress of smaller component parts. If A is completely dependant on B and B is completely dependant on C, etc. there must be an ultimate bottom to the component layers, otherwise the chain of complete dependence would have no beginning. A hydrogen atom is completely dependant on the existence of protons and electrons.
