Atoms don't remember where they used to be right? Like no atoms are reused they don't have memory?

    Atoms are reused all the time. But, they don't have any memory, no. Like, the iron in your frying pan? It doesn't remember being in the core of a star as it exploded. It was, because that's the only way iron gets made and spread throughout a solar system, but there's nothing about that experience contained within the atom save for the atom's mere existence.

    Atoms do not have a central nervous system to record and store memories. They are not living, thinking entities and are just ordinary bits of matter that follows the pull of gravity or the force of a physical cause.

    As far as science had detect, atoms are not alive and as such have no memory.  They can not think and can not remember.  Everything they do is determined by the laws of chemistry and physics.  Are they reused?  Yes.  If something was blown apart the atoms that survive would bound with whatever is around them and eventually be used as part of something else.

    Atoms are reused all the time.  Things are always undergoing chemical changes.  Water is two hydrogen atoms and an oxygen atom.  Those hydrogen atoms were created at the beginning of the universe and oxygen was created in nuclear fusion in stars but they've been part of many many compounds over the billions of years since then.

    Protons, neutrons, and electrons (the things atoms are made of), at their very core, are basically just physical manifestations of energy waves in various quantum fields interacting with other quantum fields.

    Back up the bus. Atoms don't have memory because they don't have the faculty to contain a memory. Atoms are just simple matter bound together and express specific electrical properties.

    Atoms are nowhere near the level of complexity to consider memory, unless you use a conflated definition of memory to say an altered atom that retains that altered state is an expression of memory of the change.

    Not only do you not know physics but you also don’t know English bc your sentence structure sucks a**
