Default Ok, then Riddle me this...

Ok, take an apple and cut it in half.

Then take one of the halves and cut it in half...

Then take one of those halves and cut it in half.

Keep doing this, even to the molecular level and beyond...

At what point do you run out of halves to cut? (assuming you have the technology to cut anything, no matter how small).

On one hand, the material can't just dissapear... so you always have something to cut in half.

On the other hand, matter can't be infinite, so you have to run out. Right?

it won't be measurable...but you will always have something to cut in half until you get down to one molecule of "apple".

no, you get an explosion, i.e., an atom bomb.

If you got down to one atom then you'd start splitting up the protons/neutrons/electrons that make up that atom. Which, as Dave said could be dangerous lol (but assuming you could do it with no bang), then I believe they have discovered particles that make up protons/neutrons... called gluons or something. Its ridiculous. Probably neverending.
