They are not light and weightless, if they float through space. On the contrary, these atoms, advance, come often, as their fragments would follow the dark rivers of the heart. They are chaos and passion, earthy, hot machine welding to pounding rhythms, music as an allegory of the time and the socialized sensitivities.
